Actor Robert Pattinson arrived at the Cosmopolis première at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC on August 13 looking absolutely handsome in his tailored blue Gucci and black tie but definitely the one accessory that you can’t miss would be his smile. The actor donned a Gucci Cruise 2013 look in navy, the same designer that he wears in his latest flick in a strong shouldered black suit, white shirt and black tie combination.

Remember Gansevoort Toronto, the last time I’ve heard of this development was back in 2008 – when Gansevoort Hotel Group had originally plan to open their fourth hotel property( with their current two flagship in NYC, a Turk and Caicos Resort) that will have 100 rooms and will include residences, a rooftop pool and on-site restaurant. The hotel will be located at the Distillery District known as being an ecclectic neighborhood in a city that is seeing a substantial amount of growth that will integrate a new build towards an existing landmark building.
Gansevoort Toronto is expected to be Toronto’s first ever LEED-certified hotel and residence and will promote environmentally building and living so very green. One thing that really caught my eye was the crazy design of the hotel which is totally not boring and if you look closely you can see some vertical hanging gardens. When I visited there website, there’s no sign of potential opening dates yet and also when I visited the site there wasnt any activity. Stay tuned!
