    TORONTO, Aug. 31 /CNW/ - The red carpet meets the runway when the stars
of film and fashion align during the 2007 Toronto International Film Festival.
CTV announced today the second in a series of exclusive red carpet events to
be held at its Festival Headquarters at 299 Queen Street West.
"FashionTelevision Celebrates Valentino" will see one of Hollywood's most
cherished designers feted on Monday, September 10 in an ultra-exclusive runway
event and fashion show hosted by FashionTelevision's Jeanne Beker.
    He was inspired by Hollywood...and Hollywood helped make him a star!
Valentino's strong association with Hollywood and its stars over the years has
been unparalleled. The Italian couturier believes modern-day movie stars
should always look glamorous and, as a result, the stars of the silver screen
became his most important clients. From Liz Taylor to Julia Roberts, Sarah
Jessica Parker to Jackie O, Ashley Judd to Uma Thurman to Gwyneth Paltrow,
Hollywood loves Valentino. Now, as luminaries from Hollywood and beyond
descend upon the city for the Toronto International Film Festival, CTV honours
Valentino's 45 years of fashion with this unique celebration.
    At "FashionTelevision Celebrates Valentino," CTV's Festival Headquarters
will be transformed into a world-class fashion event with cocktails and
couture. A VIP list of special guests from Hollywood and beyond will enjoy
cocktails before being treated to a spectacular fashion show featuring
Valentino's 2007 Fall/Winter Collection. In a first for CTV's 299 Queen West
environment, special guests will look on as the collection is presented on a
spectacular 80-foot runway created just for this special night.
    Hosted by Jeanne Beker, "FashionTelevision Celebrates Valentino" serves
as a "teaser" for the upcoming, one-hour biography Valentino, Master of Style,
set to air on CTV and FashionTelevision Channel at a later date.
    As announced earlier this week, CTV's suite of No.1 entertainment brands
is joining forces to cover every red carpet, every major star, every gala, and
every breaking story for the 10 days of the Toronto International Film
Festival. Combining to bring even more all-access coverage are entertainment
news teams from eTalk, Star!, MuchMusic, MTV, Bravo! and Fashion Television
Channel - each fanning across the City to cover the Festival like never
