The Weekend To-Do: 2 must-see flicks, 1 new party soundtrack and a designer sample sale top our hit-list
Everybody’s working for the weekend. Each Friday we’ll be sharing our tips on what FASHION will be getting up to on the weekend with our top six cross-Canada to-dos. In our first instalment, we head to the cinema for some sartorial inspiration (both cute and dramatic), hunt for vintage in Montreal, find a new party soundtrack and hit up a designer sample sale.
Snow White and the Huntsman
Pitting Charlize Theron against Kristen Stewart, this stylized version of the Brothers Grimm fairytale promises more dark romanticisms, less happy (or sleepy, or dopey) dwarfs. It’s worth checking out for the over-the top-costumes alone.
In theatres across Canada June 1.
Scissor Sisters Magic Hour
On Tuesday, New York’s Scissor Sisters released their fourth album, which features Azealia Banks, Calvin Harris, Diplo and Pharrell Williams. It’s the soundtrack to your Saturday night post–disco nap pre-drink.

The National Ballet of Canada’s Hamlet
Shakespeare’s famous tragedy gets its grand jeté on in The National Ballet of Canada’s North American premiere of Hamlet, opening tonight at the Four Seasons Centre. Peep three of the dancers (Guillaume Côté, Piotr Stanczyk and Jiří Jelinek) modelling in the Spring 2012 issue of Men’s FASHION.
June 1 – 10
Four Seasons Centre, Toronto
Wes Anderson’s latest opened the 2012 Cannes Film Festival in style with star Tilda Swinton sporting her signature Haider Ackermann, and the likes of Lana Del Rey and Jessica Chastain working the red carpet. This tale of two juvenile runaway lovers is going to do for Boy Scout uniforms what Margot Tenenbaum did for fur and black eyeliner.
