Film buffs and industry insiders have defected to our neighbor up north for the Toronto Film Festival, kicking off tomorrow. Some of the most- buzzed-about movies of the year get screened at this high-profile fest, but for us the real stars come in the form of breathtaking gowns and luxe jewels on the red carpet. The annual TIFF Gala takes place tonight and in anticipation of all the stunning cocktail dresses, showstopping accessories and knockout hair-and-makeup combos on some of our favorite celebrities, we wanted to share a little style inspo for your next formal night out. Whether you need to be dressed for a black tie event or just a fun cocktail party, let these impeccable ensembles be your guide. Lights, camera, gorgeous!

Let texture take over a glamorous night out by choosing a statement-making piece dripping in embellishments. We teamed a crystal-and-feather covered mini skirt with a silk crop top and ombre eyeshadow. Talk about the perfect GNO outfit.
Get ready for heads to turn when you slip into a sequined midi dress (bonus points if it's long sleeve). To complement the iridescent sheen on this Givenchy frock, incorporate a pop of color into your beauty look: Try shimmering purple gloss for a sultry finishing touch.
Jeweled detailing puts a sweet and feminine spin on a modern mini dress. We heart the way the blue crystals shine on the bodice of this sleeveless silhouette from Miu Miu. Add an eye-catching clutch, and you'll be red carpet-ready in no time.
