The Pirelli Calendar pin-up girl.

FROM THE ARCHIVE: Since the Pirelli Calendar’s inception in 1964, the images have been not just of beautiful women but of the beautiful women. Here, we look back on the epitome of Mediterranean beauty, Signora Sophia Loren, who appeared in the famed calendar in 2007.

The Maison Perrier-Jouët celebration for Foxcatcher was buzzing. Like clockwork, the Cannes darling enthralled Toronto critics and audiences alike last night. Based on actual events, this Sony Pictures Classics drama is one of the year’s most anticipated films.

The brows have landed. Lending some much needed catwalk chic to the Toronto International Film Festival’s opening weekend, Cara Delevingne arrived to celebrate the world premiere of The Face of an Angel.

Bill Murray, Tom Hardy, Harvey Weinstein, Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, and Naomi Watts.

By far the hottest invitation of the night, the Hudson’s Bay bash for the world premiere of St. Vincent quickly turned into a wild kingdom of revelry. Befitting of the end of the Toronto International Film Festival’s official Bill Murray Day, the veteran actor earned a thundering ovation at the Princess of Wales Theatre for his latest role.

The 39th annual Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) began with an evening of art imitating life imitating art. The inimitable Al Pacino was the subject of a career retrospective, taking part in an onstage conversation with interviewer George Stroumboulopoulos.
