On Saturday night HELLO! Canada celebrated their fifth anniversary at the annual TIFF gala at the Ritz-Carlton. The theme was ‘Hello Hollywood Style’ and 10-foot backdrops of some of the world’s biggest stars towered over the crowd. Guests were treated to makeup touch-ups by L’Oreal pros, and Toronto artist, Beckie DiLeo, painted live portraits on stage. Canadian celebs in attendance included Dan Kurtz and Martina Sorbara of Dragonette, Erin Karpluk and Adam Fergus of Being Erica.
