With exactly one week to go until the Toronto International Film Festival hits Canadian soil, we are really starting to get excited for the rolling out of the red carpet! September 10 will see some of the hottest stars of the moment step out for the premieres, screenings and photocalls as part of the festivities, giving us plenty of beauty and style inspiration for those coming winter months!
As part of our run up to the festival, we are looking through the L'Oréal Paris ambassador archives to see what kind of stellar red carpet styles we have seen before, in preparation for the weeks to come! Next on our list is TIFF veteran and one of our all-time red carpet favorites Julianne Moore , who will be hitting Ontario in just over a week to support her new films Maggie's Plan, which will be one of the festival's special presentations, and Freeheld, which will show as a gala presentation.
Here is our breakdown of Julianne's best TIFF appearances so far...
Black and cream
Julianne is a classic beauty with a classic red carpet wardrobe: this 54-year-old knows exactly what outfits, colors and makeup suite her look! Looking back at her TIFF appearances, black and cream luxurious fabrics have featured time and time again, but to completely different effects every time! We especially love the contrast between her 2014 Still Alice premiere shift dress and her Map to the Stars look from the same year: the former rich with floral embroidery and the latter channelling Old Hollywood-chic. Julianne did wear a stunning light teal strapless dress to the 2009 TIFF Chloe screening, so we shall have to wait and see what colors she brings to the red carpet this year!
A radiant redhead
When it comes to red carpet hair, Julianne knows how to show off her radiant red locks with style! Always keeping her appearances simple and flawlessly elegant, her go-to hair choices for TIFF so far have really channelled her signature style, as shown by her low smooth chignon from the 2009 A Single Man after party, or by her silky straight locks on the 2014 Still Alice red carpet. This woman is definitely our number one redhead inspiration!
All about the eyeshadow
When it comes to TIFF makeup looks, this Oscar-winner has got the winning combination: a natural, nude lip shade contrasted against a shimmering eyeshadow! Our favorite so far has to be last year's Map to the Stars defined eye makeup with a champagne eyeshadow shade and XXL lashes.
