Bold Colours and Prints Hit the Red Carpet at TIFF 2013

The Toronto International Film Festival has come and gone, but the amazing ensembles we saw? We have a feeling those will stick around a little while longer (at least in our minds). As we headed back to work today, we couldn't help but daydream about Julia Roberts's red, lacy Dolce & Gabbana number. And it wasn't just the colour that stunned — the flared miniskirt and sleeves made for an incredibly flattering silhouette on the August: Osage County actress.

Olivia Wilde also inspired in a bright yellow halter gown that hit the sweet spot between bold and feminine with enviable precision. Her nude Jimmy Choo pumps and bright pink lips were the perfect complement to a vibrantly simple look. Then, there was Scarlett Johansson's spotted Vivienne Westwood dress. With a sweetheart neckline and asymmetrical hemline, the purple and white polka-dotted frock was easily among the top ensembles at the cinematic gathering.

Rather than continue to reminisce on all of our favourite festival looks (though there are plenty more we could swoon over), we've decided to highlight some of our red carpet-ready picks below — all guided by the daring hues and prints we saw at TIFF. So whether you're headed to a premiere or simply a party, these irresistible dresses promise to provide some major, formal soirée inspiration.
