With the Toronto International Film Festival in full swing mere mortals will need some mega-wattage accoutrements if they want a chance to shine in the international limelight.

Luckily, bling is back in fashion this season, thanks to the resurgence of the ’80s, that glittering age of excess.

From swaths of sequins and paillettes to meteor-sized crystals, it’s a dazzling array of sparkle and shimmer to help you make a supernova entrance at the premieres, galas and parties.

The seductive power of such star-bright embellishment was one that was fully understood by the legendary Hollywood designer Adrian. Responsible for extravagant costumes and working on lavish Cecil B. DeMille and MGM productions, he helped starlets like Greta Garbo, Jean Harlow and Joan Crawford turn up the glamour wattage.
