Vancouver’s red carpet | Hollywood yohana

“In a notoriously laid-back city, it’s nice to see a bit of red carpet glamour,” said Maggie Langrick, the new arts editor at the Vancouver Sun and my co-judge for this year’s Best Dressed on the Red Carpet at the Leo Awards. We were being asked what was the best part of being asked to present this award, and her words were spot on.

The red carpet event took place at the Westin Bayshore on Saturday, May 24, and not surprisingly, some of Vancouver’s best and most established designers dressed some of the lovely nominees. Vicky Mackie, the Leo Awards publicist, looked stunning in a Chloe Angus (chloeangus.) two-piece silver and blue number with a dazzling belt, while Jo Bates, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actress by a Female in a Feature Length Drama, wore a floor-length turquoise and brown silk burnout dress by the same designer. Corner Gas actress Gabrielle Miller wore a knockout silver-sequined mini by Jason Matlo (jasonmatlo.), an outfit that garnered her the Best Dressed on the Red Carpet honour.
As for me and my co-presenters, who also included Citytv’s Dawn Chubai, we wore outfits provided by Teenflo, which just opened its first retail location outside Quebec on the upper level of the Pacific Centre. Since our goal was to judge the stars, not upstage them, Dawn chose a black, yellow and white skirt—a signature look from Teenflo’s spring collection, Maggie went with a classy white pantsuit, and I picked a magenta sheath dress and paired it with a statement necklace from the new H&M flagship.
