#TIFF2015: "Black Mass," "Forsaken," "Families," & "Brooklyn" Premieres Wish List

Dakota Johnson is going to have a busy few weeks come the end of August and the beginning of September. She has two films premiering at the Venice Film Festival then she will jet to Toronto where her film "Black Mass" is going to be presented at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. "Black Mass" is premiering at the festival as a special presentation which means that it most likely wont be as formal a premiere as a Gala. With that in mind it is still a major premiere at a major film festival so couture is expected. I picked this black Chanel Fall 2015 Couture flapper-esque cocktail dress for Dakota to wear on the red carpet because I think that this is a look that she has yet to try out on the red carpet and I do think that she would look amazing in this piece. Dakota attended the New York special presentation on the Chanel Pre-Fall 2015 collection and then wore a Chanel Couture mini dress to this years Met Gala so there is already a standing relationship between the two. I would finish this look off rather simply with a red lip, a wavy bob, simple black Christian Louboutin sandals, and a pair of diamond cluster earrings to keep in that vintage look that the dress holds.
Demi Moore stars alongside Kiefer Sutherland and Donald Sutherland in the film "Forsaken," which has a gala premiere slot at this years Toronto International Film Festival. It has been a hot minute since we have seen Demi on the red carpet and I gotta say that I am looking forward to what she might bring to the red carpet. I picked this black Prabal Gurung Resort 2016 lurex cable jacquard sleeveless gown which features a cable pattern flecked with metallic in an a-line silhouette with a square neckline and tulip high-low hem for Demi to wear for this premiere. It is a simple yet elegant statement for Demi to make on her red carpet return in a designer whom she helped launch the career of. I think that this is just dramatic enough for TIFF without being too over the top. I pray to the hair gods that Demi wears her hair up and back to showcase the neckline of this gown and I will forgive what I am sure will be a pair of boring black pumps worn with this dress.
Former fashion model turned actress Gemma Chan has been working the red carpet scene quite well recently, making splashes representing British designers mostly on her red carpet outings. Gemma will be in Toronto promoting her film "Families" and I can not wait to see what she will wear as it is expecting to be a chic colorful statement. I picked this Mary Katrantzou Resort 2016 'Amsonia" gown. This silk crepe gown features a square neck, front crossing straps and multicolor accordion pleat details coming from the front darts creating a relaxed silhouette perfect for a special presentation premiere. I would further the pops of color with a pink lip, pink sandals, and add a gold clutch for a metallic pop to ensure that no one will dull Gemma's shine.
Rounding out today's first set of wishes for the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival is Saoirse Ronan who will be presenting her film "Brooklyn" in a special presentation slot at the festival. The 21 year old Irish actress definitely marches to the beat of her own drum on the red carpet picking looks that most would fear to wear on the red carpet and I am hoping that she keeps up her avant garde look at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. With that in mind I picked this peacock like Chanel Spring 2014 Couture feathered cocktail dress. I honestly think that this dress screams for Saoirse to wear it on the red carpet and TIFF is the perfect platform to be able to do so. With such a bold dress a simple pair of black sandals, a sleek bun, and fresh faced makeup will ensure that Saoirse knocks this look out on the red carpet.
