A still from Fashions Fade by Ben Reyes.
Last night at a special screening at the Whistler Film Festival, we proudly announced the winner of the first-ever ELLE Canada Fashion Film Competition: “Fashion Fades” by Ben Reyes.
As one of our judges, Robert Ott, the chair of the School of Fashion at Ryerson University, put it: “Ben was able to explore a surprisingly succinct yet complex narrative around romance, class, style and urbanism.”

Fellow judge Noreen Flanagan—and editor-in-chief of ELLE Canada—concurred. “I was impressed that Ben could tell such a charming—and universal–story in two minutes or less. Who doesn’t want to be noticed by the object of his or her fancy? And, everyone (even a sweet busker boy) appreciates the role of fashion in making that happen.”

Friends, this Temperley London cocktail frock might be the perfect ladylike LBD. And who better to wear it than Kate Middleton, the queen (duchess?) of refined basics? I love the pattern, the detailed hem, the subtle empire waist. It’s also a great day-to-evening dress: picture it with a cropped moto jacket, fitted blazer or a pretty cardi paired with pointy toe flats.
On the beauty front: while I love Kate’s darker hair colour, I think she would look fantastic with a shorter cut. Dare we dream of adding a little edge to Kate’s classic look? Imagine her with a super chic lob (long bob), super high Nicholas Kirkwood heels and scary cool Delfina Delettrez jewellery. Will wouldn’t know what hit him.

Until recently, Mila Kunis was the lone female That ’70s Show alum in the public eye. But her former co-star Laura Prepon is now also making news, thanks to her hit show Orange is the New Black and, er, Tom Cruise.
So, who’s cooler: Jackie or Donna? We compared the actresses in two fields: love life and career.
Mila vs Laura: LOVE LIFE
Mila Kunis: After dating Macaulay Culkin for EIGHT YEARS, Mila got together with Ashton Kutcher, her former That ’70s Show on-screen boyfriend, amid a very public, very messy separation from Demi Moore. Ashton and Demi are now formally divorced, and the beautiful Mila and the star of Jobs and Two and a Half Men (….) are still together.
Laura Prepon: Laura is private about her love life, so when rumours surfaced earlier this week that she and fellow Scientologist Tom Cruise were an item—they were spotted having dinner together in L.A.—they caused a sensation. But Cruise’s rep shot it down: “They see each other at some functions, but they’re not dating.”
Edge: Laura. She gets the buzz mileage out of the Cruise rumour without actually having to date him. And she doesn’t have to listen to Kutcher talk about anything, ever, if she doesn’t want to. Seriously, Mila, you can do better.
