Toronto International Film Festival Culminates at InStyle and HFPA’s Annual Bash!Sep 12, 2012 @ 10:35 am
“It looks gorgeous!” exclaimed the Dolce & Gabbana-dressed Paula Patton when she walked into the InStyle and Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 13th annual Toronto International Film Festival bash, held at the Windsor Arms Hotel. Celebrities including Abbie Cornish of Seven Psychopaths (in Emilio Pucci), Mary Elizabeth Winstead of Smashed (in Tucker), and Patton’s Disconnect co-star Jason Bateman echoed her reaction throughout the night, as the main ballroom had been transformed into an amber dahlia garden thanks to Forget Me Not Flowers’s mastermind Frank Rea. The beautiful backdrop matched the beautiful crowd of filmmakers and stars—many bedecked in gold jewelry thanks to host, The World Gold Council—as they freshened up at Sephora’s touch-up station, sipped on custom Patron tequila drinks, snacked on crispy soba noodle cakes and mini-sliders, and kept the InStyle Sweet Treats candy barista busy refilling jars of M&Ms and sour gummies. “This is an amazing moment,” Patton added. “It’s fun to come to this party because it makes me feels like I’m back in film school again, where you’re celebrating the art of filmmaking.” Click through the gallery to see more stars at the InStyle and HFPA fête!
