Film Fest Mania: The Tastemakers Lounge

The Toronto International Film Festival is in full swing, with movie fans lined up at theatres all over Toronto's downtown and 'Stars' meeting with reporters and preparing for their 'Red Carpet' events.

This year sees the return of the Tastemakers Celebrity Gift Lounge, (now dubbed the eTalk Tastemakers Green Room), held at the InterContinental Toronto Yorkville. With the current eco-movement, President Debra Goldblatt felt it was important that the lounge follow suit. “There has never been a better trend than everybody attempting to go GREEN. We not only wanted to continue providing visiting talent a great Canadian lounge to visit, but during a week of frivolity and fun, use this opportunity to support a charity and continue educating others!”

The World Wildlife Fund-Canada is the official charitable partner and through sponsors’ participation Tastemakers will help WWF-Canada raise funds and awareness for their Save Our Climate campaign. The lounge has been designed by HGTV's Designer Guys using environmentally friendly furniture and materials and prominently features Canadian companies and brands with a conscience.

Some of the brands that Brad and Angelina can expect to find are: Stylish reusable shopping by Vancouver-based Bring Your Own Bag, Toronto-based DaLish Cosmetics, Dermaglow, YSL's newest fragrance Elle (launching in October), Linden's range of body care products with unisex fruit and plant-derived fragrances, Mavi Jeans, high-end costume jewellery by Otazu Jewellery, Smashbox Cosmetics, innovative men’s fashion by Strellson, Timex, and glamorous beachwear by V Del Sol.

Celebrities have been seen entering Tastemakers and I have been informed that Rachel Leigh Cook (All Hat) took home a stunning V Del Sol bikini and ladies Timex watch. She loved her gorgeous Otazu bracelet so much, that she also wore it home! Stephen Dorff (The Passage) cleaned up at Strellson with two coats, a hat, a scarf, and a variety of ties. He also loved his new Greg May hair product and Mavi Denim. Rashida Jones (The Office) loved DaLish cosmetics, an amazing Joe Fresh jacket and a hot white V Del Sol bikini. And Joey Slotnik (Nip/Tuck, Single Guy) chose Joe Fresh Menswear and President's Choice organic coffee.

The eTalk Tastemakers Green Room will run September 7th – 13th.
