Star Power: Canada’s Walk of Fame
Just in time for the Toronto International film Festival, some of Canada’s brightest stars came out to shine on the red carpet for the 12th annual Canada’s Walk of Fame at the architecturally masterful Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts.
Yours truly captured the style success of the presenters and inductees on the rouge welcome mat.

Kim Cattrall conquers Sex and the City and the red carpet effortlessly. Ever the professional–and gorgeously dressed in Dolce and Gabbana–she strolled down the red carpet, flashing genuine smiles to fans outside the velvet ropes and pausing briefly to speak with eager press before she received her award. At the award show, Cattrall gave a tear-jerker speech recounting her time as an actress on the come up. She’s one proud Canadian!
A round of applause goes to Cattrall’s public relations rep, who also donned her evening best. Her style weapon: a classic Chanel dress with crochet detailed shoulders. Spectacular.
It’s no wonder this design duo garnered a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame. Dean and Dan Caten of Dsquared2 are known for their Canadiana inspired numbers and no one knows how to flip the chic switch on lumberjack boots, plaids and fur-pelt hats on the runway like they do. This time they opted for classic black and white for the award show. Decidedly humble and effortlessly dapper, they are among my favourite Canadian designers.
We may remember Elisha Cuthbert best from her kid-role in Canadian after-school favourite Popular Mechanics for Kids, but many call to mind an oh-so-sultry Cuthbert in 2004 flick “The Girl Next Door.” Now—and fabulously gowned in an Abaeté dress—the face of American action-thriller television series “24,” awarded a fellow Canuck heartthrob and actor, Raymond Burr. He was most famed for black-and-white films “Perry Mason” and “Ironside.”
Do you remember the song “Life is a Highway?” Well, not only does Tom Cochrane create hit tracks, he also managed to rear some serious style femmes. Here are his daughters Cody and Evanne who came along to cheer on their crooning Dad in their best duds: pulled from Toronto’s Chasse Gardee and vintage clothing boutique Penny Arcade, no less.
Fellow fashion femme, Julia LeConte also took to the carpet to capture some of Canada’s best and brightest for Lifestyle magazine. Her in a gorgeous Alexander Wang dress and me in an LBD from my favourite cheap-chic purveyor du jour, we give our best style poses before heading inside to catch the show!
