There are umpteen studs in Hollywood and so many of them were in town at various premieres during TIFF 2013. Some we saw, some we can only wish we did, but all of ‘em, yep all of ‘em brought that megawatt je ne sais quoi. Here we count down the best looking and best-dressed Hollywood men who transformed the ladies (and gents!) of our city into mere puddles on the floor.

12 Years a Slave premiered last night at TIFF 2013 and it already has people buzzing about Oscar noms. On the red carpet outside the Princess of Wales theatre, director Steve McQueen chummily posed for photos with star Chiwetel Ejiofor, whilst Michael Fassbender triggered many a sigh in a navy pin dot two-piece Tom Ford suit. Meanwhile, alt-hunk of the moment Benedict Cumberbatch posed with Paul Giamatti in matchy-match relaxed suits with unbuttoned shirts.

“Very grateful” are the words Hollywood’s leading lady Angelia Jolie used to describe how she was feeling during her first red carpet appearance since undergoing a widely publicized double-mastectomy. The brunette beauty, who announced the news of her preventative procedures to the New York Times on May 14th, described her happiness in seeing the discussion about women’s health expanded since sharing her story. The news has made waves all over the world, encouraging women everywhere to consider their options. FASHION contributor Amy Verner was inspired to share her own experiences with the suddenly “trending topic” in article for the Globe and Mail.
Jolie, who has six children with fiancée Brad Pitt, lost her own mother to ovarian cancer in 2007. When the actress learned that she carried the faulty gene that increased her chances of breast cancer to 87 percent, she chose to take action to minimize her risk. “Life comes with many challenges”, the actress wrote in her New York Times article, “The ones that should not scare us are the ones we can take on and take control of.”

If you’ve been placing bets like we have on who’s going to design Angelina Jolie’s wedding dress, you better re-examine your choices. The actress is looking for a designer who is “not so obvious for designing wedding gowns”. The one she’s after? Rumor has it that it’s L’Wren Scott.
Scott, although not known for designing wedding gowns, is a regular go-to for celebrities such as Nicole Kidman and Sarah Jessica Parker when they hit up red carpet events, and according to a “friend” of Jolie’s the designer is “the one who understands her body the most.”

And the plot thickens. The saga of Chanel No. 5’s Brad Pitt campaign continues with a second edition of the commercial. The monologue from Monday’s ad—which is voiced by Pitt, the brand’s first male ambassador for the fragrance—remains the same only now the commercial is less about his brooding face and more about Chanel No. 5.

Finally the Brad Pitt-fronted Chanel No.5 campaign has been released and it’s basically the star telling us YOLO (or so we’d like to believe). Plans disappear, dreams take over and every journey ends says a sad and scruffy Brad Pitt, with a soulful smile that still manages to go right into our hearts.
The commercial’s plotline is simple: Brad Pitt delivers a 30-second monologue directly to the camera and that’s it. Brad must take fragrances very seriously (and hair cuts not so much) because the tone of the entire commercial is sombre and emotional. The Chanel No.5 bottle never even shares a frame with Brad Pitt, instead making a 2 second appearance at the end, before cutting back to Brad so he can finish it all off by saying “inevitable”.
The print campaign on the other hand is a bit more reasonable than the video because Brad Pitt doesn’t speak. The black and white ad features the same unkempt Brad Pitt, but now he stares at the Chanel perfume bottle looking curious and a little stunned.
This is the first Chanel No.5 campaign to feature a man as the face of the fragrance, and it wasn’t quite what we expected. Actually, we had no idea what to expect but when Brad Pitt delivers a soulful monologue it always leaves us a little flushed in the face and stunned.
Chanel announces Brad Pitt as the new face of Chanel No. 5 with a video celebrating its tradition as a game-changing fragrance
After 91 years, Chanel has the recipe for perfume success locked down: Beautiful woman, timeless scent, timeless bottle. But while the formula for Chanel No. 5 itself will never change, Chanel is modifying their marketing with an interesting twist: Brad Pitt has signed on as the newest face of Chanel No. 5 face, making him the first man to represent a women’s fragrance.
