If there’s one event in Toronto that’s worth changing up your look for, it’s Power Ball. The Power Plant’s annual fundraiser party is more art show extravaganza than gala, making elaborate costumery just as popular as black tie looks. We’ve already given you some tips on what to wear on Thursday night, so now it’s time to consider the other important part of your Power Ball outfit: your hair and makeup.
Power Ball is the perfect time to tease your hair into an unrecognizable pouf or apply as many rhinestones to your eyelids as possible—seriously! (For further proof, check out our photo galleries from past Power Ball parties.)

Thanks to the talents of makeup artists like Pat McGrath and Diane Kendal and hair stylists such as Guido Palau and Sam McKnight, we’ve found 25 looks from the Spring and Fall 2013 shows that you should definitely try to duplicate.

Ed Westwick walked Philipp Plein’s runway in Milan this weekend, proving once and for all that it’s not just the Gossip Girl ladies who get all the fashion industry love.
Channeling a withering Blue Steel look that even rivals its creator’s (Derek Zoolander, obviously), the Gossip Girl actor opened and closed the designer’s menswear show, marking his first ever turn as a runway star. Westwick also brought more of his model A game to Philipp Plein’s ad campaign, shot by none other than Terry Richardson. In true Terry style, the raunchy campaign featured a lot of hair flipping, lap dances and glass shattering, with Westwick looking impeccably dapper all the while in a tailored Philipp Plein suit.
The German designer has always been tuned in to the world of celebrity — as you might remember, he was one of the first to launch Lindsay Lohan’s “comeback” earlier this year by featuring her in a campaign.
