At this point in the film festival, we all need a little something to set our pulses racing.
At last night's lingerie fashion show at Nikki Beach.
Welcome to ELLECanada.com’s official TIFF journal! This festival, Laura deCarufel and Jennifer Lee, the co-editors of Hardly magazine, have the high honour of reporting from TIFF’s coolest events. Stay tuned for party coverage, profiles, and behind-the-scenes scoop!
If there’s one thing that the party people at Nikki Beach know, it’s their audience. The pop-up event space, which has taken over the C-Lounge during the film festival, is famous for its portable blend of Miami heat. (Think filmy white panels, leather banquettes, and beautiful people with tans that are more Jessica Alba than Jersey Shore.) It all comes together to create what is easily one of the most fun places to be any night of the festival.
Last night, Nikki Beach upped the ante, playing host to a Cosabella lingerie fashion show hosted by Ben Mulroney.

Yes, the lingerie was beautiful, but it was arguably even more fun to watch the crowd.
