Venice vs. TIFF fashion showdown, Keira Knightley edition
The Venice Film Festival overlaps briefly with TIFF, which means stars attending both must be prepared for a whole lot of travel and double the red carpet outfits. But, as we observed last year, it seems Venice more often than not gets the couture and Toronto the not-so-couture. Take Keira Knightley for example, seen on the left at the September 2 Venice premiere of A Dangerous Method in a full-length Valentino gown, and on the right at the TIFF gala eight days later in a similarly toned Elie Saab dress. The photos were taken only days apart but there’s almost no contest: Knightley is black tie in one, and cocktail ready in the other. While we think she looks beautiful in both—the Valentino is meticulously detailed and the Elie Saab full of whimsy—we can’t help but feel that as usual, Toronto is getting the shorter end of the fashion stick. What do you think?
