We always lead with the best first. One of our greatest living actors, Keith David, shows up on the red carpet for Cloud Atlas, in what appears to be one of the greatest ensembles ever: lavender jacket, royal purple waistcoat, salmon shirt. Genius.
Tom Hanks, meanwhile, eschewed colour with his clothes, going instead for a double-breasted jacket, with the kind of peaked lapels you don’t usually see outside of the 1920s.
The great Hugo Weaving, also here for Cloud Atlas, continues TIFF’s war on ties.
Jude Law, here for Anna Karenina, decides to take a stand on the tie front, and follows it up with a gorgeous grey double-breasted waistcoat, complete with matching slacks.
Also seen wearing a tie is the affable Mark Ruffallo, seen here with Gwyneth Paltrow and Josh Gad (also on Team Tie), at the Thanks For Sharing premiere.
Ben Affleck, here for Argo, goes silver, with this charcoal suit, complete with tie and peaked lapels much less crazy than Tom Hank’s.
Zephron also gets in with the tie crowd. Zac Ephron is in Toronto for the premiere of At Any Price.
Salman Rushdie, seen here with director Deepa Mehta, here for her film Midnight’s Children, kicks the tie to the curb in this gorgeous white-on-white Nehru jacket.
White Nehru jackets seemed to be a minor theme, since the great Jackie Chan also showed up in one, resplendent in this blinding white piece.
Halle Berry give shoulderpads a good name in this awesome patterned purple jacket, complete with see-through top.
Also rocking the see-through look is Keira Knightley, in this sheer, lacy floor-length gown.
Ewan Mcgregor, in Toronto for the premiere of The Impossible decides to toss out ties, dress shirts and dress shoes altogether, instead showing up looking like a member of a post-punk band.
Hightop boots, slacks, and a black-on-black blazer over t-shirt. Now that’s how to do it.
