The 2017 Juno Awards came to a close a few weeks ago, and I am still feeling the buzz. I couldn’t be happier to take part in the action and I am so blessed to have partnered with Place D’Orleans for the entire campaign.
On March 3rd, I presented a fashion TV segment “Dress like a JUNOs star with Place D’Orleans” on CTV Morning Live and that day, launched a contest on my Instagram account to win 2 tickets to the Junos, two $100 gift cards to Place D’Orleans and two VIP gift cards at Hai Republic for the lucky winners!
What I wore to the JUNOs
When I put my outfit together at Place D’Orleans, I was going for a ‘Rockstar Journalist’ style. The leather jacket, bell-bottom cutoff jeans and embroidered guitar strap bag were definitely key elements to nailing this look. Albeit I didn’t get to interview any artists, or meet any in person, seeing them walk by in the media space was a pretty surreal experience.
It sounds silly, but I didn’t take any pictures of the celebrities I saw, because you have to keep your cool in the media room. It’s an unspoken rule, you know? I saw the Trudeaus, Brian Adams, Billy Talent, Marianna’s Trench and a whole bunch of E! Talk folks.
Regardless of this being a red carpet event, musicians always stay true to their style and opt for a practical yet glam look on stage and on the carpet. I used that philosophy to inspire my look. Being a blogger behind-the-scenes at events can seem glamorous, but it’s a lot of work and there is lots of running around, so I wanted to be comfortable and stylish. I got my entire look from Hudson’s Bay at Place D’Orleans.
