We know you can’t make it out to every party, every single night but we don’t want you to miss a thing! Live vicariously through us as we give you insider access and take you to Toronto’s most notable TIFF 16 parties.
The next stop after the Birks Diamond Tribute and Mongrel House Day 5 was my TIFF home away from home, Soho House, where at midnight, the after party for the Dakota Fanning and Kit Harington film Brimstone kicked off. Fanning, dressed in a beautiful purple velvet Dolce & Gabbana number, was the first to arrive – an impressive feat which showcased her professionalism. She also didn’t lay her hands on a drink all eve and stayed to the bitter, late end. I overheard someone asking her if she wanted them to get her her car and she simply and casually said no, that she’ll wait for Britney (note to self: find out who this ominous Britney is). She has total cool-girl status in our books.
Kit Harington couldn’t make the party
The party was pretty sparse, the first sign that people are TIFF’d out and that it’s a Monday night, I guess? Said sparseness made it overly evident that Kit Harington wasn’t in attendance as he’s currently on set shooting out of town (GoT season 7, anyone?). The news was certainly saddening for those waiting to fangirl/boy out.
Guests sipped on espresso martinis to get them through the final week of TIFF
The guests in attendance were gravitating towards the Grey Goose Star of Film Noir, which is an espresso martini with Grey Goose vodka, fresh single origin espresso, coffee liqueur and cardamom, to give them an extra hit of energy. A better idea than some of the other things Hollywood types have been known to put into their systems to stay awake, me thinks.
The night wrapped on the Soho House rooftop just after 4am when they very obviously killed the music, to get the F outta there, all to just do it again like clockwork tonight. My feet hurt. I’m tired. End rant.
