TIFF Celeb Swag: The Swarovski TIFF Gifting Suite

For years Swarovski has been behind the scenes creating the blinged-out accessories and costumes from our favourite sartorial films (think Sex and the City 2, The Devil Wears Prada and even Dorothy’s slippers in The Wizard of Oz).

At this year’s Toronto International Film Festival the jewellery giant will be helping the biggest names in Hollywood shine a little brighter on the red carpet with its suite full of baubles at the Four Seasons Hotel.

We had the pleasure of checking out the swank suite pre-celebrity arrival on the eve of TIFF. On display for its only Canadian appearance is the Daniel Swarovski Catwalk Collection of handcrafted couture clothing and accessories. 

The one-of-a-kind pieces are adorned with multicolour crystal stones, ostrich feathers, metallic sequins and leather. The “Paparazzi Around” crystal mesh dress was definitely our favourite piece of the collection, and reminded us a bit of Alexander McQueen’s last collection.

The suite also features the label’s Fall/Winter 2011 collection, Wings of Fantasy, with statement necklaces, cocktail rings, earrings and bangles inspired by the graceful moves and stage presence of a ballerina. Expect to see some of your favourite celebrities sparkle with the help of Swarovski all festival long.

We are bringing you into the hottest gifting lounges inside the 2011 Toronto Internation Film Festival. Make sure you check back for your look behind-the-scenes at all the swag that the celebs are loading up on.
