Toronto Life’s Most Stylish party: 52 shots of the city’s best dressed
To celebrate the publication of their second annual Stylebook issue, Toronto Life brought together the city’s trendsetters for their first Most Stylish party. Held at the just opened Shangri-La Hotel, partygoers mingled amongst life size cardboard cut-outs of the 25 notables who made the Toronto Life Best Dressed list—a decor move that came as surprise to the Best Dressed attendees who had no idea that their stylish silhouettes would be on display. (Not to say that they weren’t appreciated: many a cut-out was spotted on Instagram, making its way throughout Toronto to other
TIFF and FNO parties long after Most Stylish ended.)
Of course, as party guests sipped Disaronno-infused cocktails and garnished oysters with caviar (proving that even bivalves need posh accessories) fashion really was the focus of the night. All the “style tribes” Toronto Life listed throughout the issue were on parade: Sylvia Mantella was ever the fashion feline in a black leather Catwoman-worthy bodysuit while Gracie Carroll showed off her brand savvyness in 3.1 Phillip Lim and Marc Jacobs. Despite Most Stylish being considered a precursor to the TIFF party circuit, the only actor we noted in attendance was Tom Green, and while his faded jeans and T-shirt were certainly what we’d expect him to wear, it probably won’t land him on the Toronto Life Best Dressed list next year.
