We’ve been tracking the best TIFF fashion moments, red carpet appearances and party gossip since the festival kicked off four days ago, so it’s time for a little break. A babe break, that is. You see, all weekend Variety has been hosting their annual Variety Studio at Holt Renfrew, and some pretty incredible talent has dropped in to chat about filmmaking. And by pretty incredible we also mean pretty dreamy: we’re talking Alexander Skarsgård, Johnny Depp, Ewan McGregor, Adrian Grenier and Darren Criss. The best part? That was only from day one. The Variety Studio will run until September 11 and even more top-notch TIFF talent is expected. So, kick up your heels and enjoy these pictures—and as TIFF continues we’ll keep you updated on who else is hanging out in the Variety Studio. Read more »

TIFF 2012: Time for a babe break! Alexander Skarsgård, Johnny Depp, Ewan McGregor and other attractive actors were at the Variety Studio at Holt Renfrew
TIFF 2012: Emma Watson and Nina Dobrev show us the perks of wearing florals at The Perks of Being a Wallflower party
If TIFF parties were award shows, most would be like the Golden Globes—totally fun, but you’ll never really get to sit with the A-listers. However, for a film like The Perks of Being a Wallflower, the night is more like the MTV VMAs: from up-and-coming stars to fully-certified teen heartthrobs, everyone’s in on the party. (Which, when you think about it, is actually what The Perks of Being a Wallflower is all about.) Despite all eyes being on Nina Dobrev and Emma Watson, they both circled the room throughout the night, stopping to mingle with guests (or Degrassi-era Toronto friends, in Nina Dobrev’s case) and pose for pictures with fans. Both were also dressed in white, frothy florals: a peplum’d Erdem dress for Emma Watson and a intricately beaded Monique Lhuillier gown for Nina Dobrev. Read more »
Carly Rae Jepsen, Katy Perry, Perez Hilton and more! See all the pictures from two of the biggest MMVA afterparties

Those of you who thought that Anna Wintour dubbing “geek” as “chic” at the Webbys was a one-time deal, think again: the cast of Glee will be featured during the third annual Fashion’s Night Out event on September 8.
Cast members including Canuck Cory Monteith, Lea Michele, Dianna Agron, Chris Colfer, and Darren Criss will make appearances at retail locations in New York and Los Angeles. Bee Shaffer—Wintour’s daughter and currently an associate managing producer in Los Angeles for Ryan Murphy’s production company, which produces Glee—supposedly set up the appearances.
Previously at FNO, Sarah Jessica Parker and Bette Midler sang show tunes with Oscar de la Renta and Alexander Wang, and his supermodel clique danced in the windows of his store. Hopefully, the cast of Glee will prepare some original performances for FNO in lieu of repeating previously aired acts. Who wouldn’t love to see a little fashion-fuelled Gaga/Glee routine while shopping like an A-lister?
Can’t make it to New York City or Los Angeles in September? Fear not: American e-commerce sites including Net-a-Porter and Shopbop will participate in FNO for the first time this year. All you’ll need to get the full experience from home is a credit card and a Glee soundtrack.
