Racing Fashion At Its Best: 28 Looks to Inspire Your Queen’s Plate Outfit

Queen’s Plate race day is just around the corner, and if you’ve already got your tickets in hand or have cleverly entered our Ultimate Queen’s Plate Fashion Experience contest, then it’s time to get sartorially prepared!

There’s a tried and true formula to racing fashion: fancy hat + chic frock. But how big of a fascinator? How formal of a dress? To answer these burning questions, we’ve pulled together a gallery of our favourite looks from international horse races past.

Style snaps from the world’s most prestigious horse racing events, including the Kentucky Derby and Australia’s Melbourne Cup, make it clear that dressing for the grandstands of a Triple Crown race is serious business. From Oscar de la Renta lace dresses to colourful printed numbers by Zara, it’s not about who you’re wearing, but how you’re wearing it.

Check out the gallery below for 28 inspired looks from Ginnifer GoodwinCoco Rocha and some incredibly stylish racing fans – and get started on your own fabulous ensemble for the Queen’s Plate in Toronto on July 7, 2013. And if you haven’t already, don’t forget to enter our epic contest for VIP #QP2013 treatment and a $1,000 Toronto Eaton Centre shopping spree for the perfect race day outfit!

Admiring from the Backseat: Cannes Film Festival 2013 Edition

That’s a wrap! After a 12-day red carpet extravaganza, the Cannes Film Festival has come to an end for another year. Of course, it’s not really over until we’ve pored over all the celebrity style snaps and narrowed them down to our 5 favourite looks of the festival.

Dior ruled the red carpet for us with two of our favourite looks: Nicole Kidman in an unexpectedly whimsical embellished frock and Marion Cotillard in a beautifully draped white gown. Carey Mulligan also made the cut in a chic black and white column dress by Vionnet, as did model Liu Wen, who brought a pop of colour to the red carpet with a navy Roberto Cavalli gown. Rounding out our 5 best dressed was Jessica Chastain in violet Givenchy, a look we couldn’t resist blogging about earlier in the festival and that took top honours in our books.

5 Winning Looks from Canada’s Erdem Moralioglu on the 2013 Awards Season Red Carpets

With the Oscars just around the corner on February 24 and the competition to dress the leading ladies no doubt heating up, there’s one designer in particular we’re really rooting for this year: Erdem Moralioglu. The Canadian-born, London-based purveyor of ladylike, floral-print dresses has been a surprise favourite so far this awards season, and we’re absolutely delighted for him.

From the gorgeous floral print gown donned by Marion Cotillard to the 2013 BAFTA Awards Season Tea Party to the lovely embroidered shift dress with lace sleeves that Jessica Chastain wore to the 85th Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon, Erdem has been on a winning streak this month that we’re really, really hoping culminates in an Oscars red carpet appearance. Wouldn’t you agree, Rachel Zoe? Kate Young? Fingers crossed!

Which Erdem look has been your favourite so far this awards season?

Admiring from the Backseat: Screen Actors Guild Awards 2013 Edition

Anne Hathaway in Giambattista Valli Couture Spring 2013

The 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, the second major stop of the 2013 awards season, was held last night at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. We sat dutifully in front of our television watching the red carpet pre-show, almost threw said television out the window when our local channel aired an interior design reality competition rather than the first half hour of the SAGs, and then finally caught up on all the awards, fashion and awkward on-stage banter in time to bring you this post.

We were underwhelmed by the decidedly lacklustre red carpet (remember last year‘s fabulous looks from Emma, Michelle and Zoe?), but still managed to cobble together a tight list of our 5 best dressed of the evening. Anne Hathaway looked lovely in a fresh-off-the-runway Giambattista Valli frock, as did Jennifer Garner in a gold, embellished number by Oscar de la Renta. Naomi Watts and Nicole Kidman sported their usual, glamourous fare, this time from Marchesa and Vivienne Westwood respectively, while Kerry Washington was the only leading lady to take a sartorial risk that we think paid off with an unexpected Rodarte design.

Did you catch the 2013 SAG Awards? Who made your best dressed list?

Anne Hathaway in Armani Prive at 2011 Golden Globe Awards

It’s official, ladies and gents! Sunday marks the beginning of this year’s awards season in Hollywood, and we’re excitedly counting down the days until the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler-hosted Golden Globes. After that, it’s going to be a non-stop red carpet glam fest as our favourite stars attend the Globes, the SAGs and finally the Oscars.

This year’s batch of nominees include leading ladies who not only have serious acting chops, but impeccable style to match (or, at least, the most talented stylists on their payrolls). We’ve rounded up the 10 actresses we’re most excited to see on the awards show red carpets this season, along with our favourite look of theirs to date.

From stars of the silver screen like Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence to those who’ve graced our televisions this past year like Claire Danes and Julianne Moore, we can’t wait to cover their sartorial choices over the next couple of months. Valentino, Dior, Elie Saab…gorgeous gowns are coming to a glamourous red carpet near you. Stay tuned!
