The Toronto International Film Festival 2016 is coming to a close and this year, there has been no shortage of phenomenal films or incredible talent, both seasoned veterans and buzzed-about up-and-comers. In between red carpet appearances, film premieres and interviews, the stars made sure to stop at InStyle's pop-up portrait studio this year, where the fun really begins. Naomi Watts bumped into bestie Nicole Kidman and a selfie moment ensued, editors' jaws dropped as Lupita Nyong'o dazzled in a gorgeous Valentino number for our cameras, and Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis cracked up the entire studio when they began swapping most embarrassing parenting moments with one another. We celebrated Taraji P. Henson's birthday right in our studio (cake and all!), and so much more.

From Naomi Watts to Alicia Vikander, see the hottest fashion from the 73rd Annual Venice Film Festival.
One of Hollywood’s leading couples can add another stunner to their real estate portfolio. According to Trulia, Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber are the new owners of a $5.4 million four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom cottage-style home in Montauk, N.Y. The picturesque 3,500-square-foot property with expansive ocean views sits on a half-acre lot and, in addition to the four bedrooms and baths, includes a dining area, large gourmet kitchen, finished basement, and a media room perfect for viewing any of their award-winning hits on family movie nights. We have a feeling the couple’s two young boys, 9-year-old Alexander (“Sasha”) and 7-year-old Samuel, will have their share of fun both inside and out of the beachside escape. Did we mention there’s a heated pool with a pool/guest house? Hold on while we pack our bags for a visit! The family is no stranger to the Hamptons. The new Surfside Avenue digs are a downsize (though no less luxurious) from their previous 6,100-square-foot home in nearby Amagansett, N.Y., where they have spent past summers. Scroll through to see more of their airy new Montauk home. Talk about ultimate #summergoals.
Apparently this is how the other half lives...
What better way to celebrate moving pictures than to sport a devil-may-care attitude and amp up the glam? That's what a roster of actresses, models, directors, and fashion darlings have begun to do this week in celebration of the 2016 Cannes Film Festival in France. Each year, the bulbs of flashing cameras nearly burst the minute a starlet like Natalie Portman adds a new, oftentimes custom, frock from the likes of say, Christian Dior, like she did in 2015, to her portfolio of best red carpet looks ever—and this one is no exception. Julianne Moore was among the first to step out in a black, embellished gown that we think epitomizes movie stardom and plays nicely with other all-black and navy moments by Lily Donaldson and Doutzen Kroes. As for Eva Longoria, her two-tone, body hugging ivory and white dress proved that when it comes to dressing for one of film and fashion's glitziest occasions, you have to bring it. Look out for daring pantsuit getups from Susan Sarandon and Victoria Beckham, too. And while the overseas style showdown also welcomes major wardrobe inspiration—so many stars change in and out of casual designer pieces and cocktail dresses during the day—it's their evening, party-going looks that ultimately dazzle.

Happy birthday to Valentino Clemente Ludovico Garavani, better known as Valentino. Today marks the iconic designer’s 84th birthday. Since emerging on the fashion scene back in the early ‘60s, Valentino has made his mark on the industry in a major way. Known as the master of haute couture, the Italian visionary’s impressive career included dressing almost every A-lister and socialite in Hollywood. Although he retired in 2008 after presenting his last haute couture show in Paris, the brand lives on with countless celebs still gracing red carpet events in Valentino designs. In his over 45 years in business, Valentino’s dressed everyone from Audrey Hepburn to Sophia Loren, Naomi Watts, Jennifer Lopez, and Cate Blanchett—just to name a few.

Some of our favorite leading ladies—from Emma Stone to Diane Keaton—are switching gears and heading to the small screen.

Plus, with streaming services like Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu delivering top-notch originals, it’s obvious why these A-listers are switching over to the episodic game. Curious to know who's making their way to TV? Scroll through our list below, where we share the projects that got them on board.
10 Images of Celebrities Carrying Eco-Friendly Totes (That Will Convince You to Ditch Plastic Bags for Good)
Adopting an eco-friendly lifestyle can be pretty daunting (even after this one celebrity busted the biggest myths about going green), but a ton of stars have shown us that we can make a difference with something as quick and easy as skipping the plastic during grocery runs in favor of using reusable totes. This one action, which requires little to no effort, has a major impact on the Earth, reducing waste, saving animals, and eliminating greenhouse gases. In the last year alone, A-listers have been snapped upping their green game with eco-conscious carryalls at the Farmers' Market and beyond. To wit, Naomi Watts got in Mother Nature's good graces by biking (yay for cutting down on carbon dioxide emissions) and shopping with her trusty Whole Foods market bag, while Sophia Bush packed her groceries into her Feed tote, an eco-friendly option that also helped to feed children in Kenya with its purchase. From grocery shopping trips to street-style outings, scroll through to see how eight other stars have greened their routines by simply carrying bags made from eco-conscious cloth, like cotton and burlap.
