We had the chance to live like a TIFF celebrity for a day…or an hour at least, thanks to the Stylist Box Celebrity Style Suite.

TIFF Celebrity Gift Lounge Stylist Box Gail McInnes

Oh, to be a celebrity and borrow from a stylist’s box of designer goodies. Or to be a celebrity attending this year’s Toronto International Film Festival and borrowing from the Stylist Box’s stash of Canadian designer goodies. Presented by Kelly Claman Company and the Stylist Box, #TheSuite2013, offers head-to-foot styling for celebrities dashing off to a red carpet premiere or exclusive party.

VIP guests receive over $2,000 worth of services and product, including access to designer collections by Lucian Matis, Whitney Eve, Kara by Kara Ross and others, as well as makeup and hair services while indulging in decadent snacks and drinks.

As the lovely Gail McInnes from Magnet Creative (one of the women behind the Stylist Box Suite for TIFF 2013) explained who had designed this year’s bling, we couldn’t help but begin playing stylist for ourselves, you know, just in case an invite should pop up for a media appearance of our own.

 

Here’s what caught our eye:

Time for some celebrity spotting around Toronto. Try the private luxe residences in the Forest Hill area (if you have a key), or for an option that doesn’t include breaking and entering, Yorkville usually does the trick.

The Toronto International Film Festival runs until September 14, 2013.
