The stars came out in droves for Hello! Canada’s Most Beautiful party on Thursday night (May 22), a strictly A-list soirée celebrating the country’s top talent.
Held at Toronto's glitzy Shangri-La hotel, the glamorous event saw some of the biggest names in Canadian entertainment — including television personalities, actors, musicians and sports icons – indulge in a little hard-earned revelry.
Dan Akroyd was among one of the first to arrive and he brought the party with him in the form of a gigantic, 60 oz bottle of Crystal Head Vodka. Not far behind were handsome Property Brothers costars Drew and Jonathan Scott, who were dapper in coordinating blue and grey suits.

Comedian Gerry Dee, as always, was in full comic force, while gorgeous ET Canada host Sangita Patel dazzled in a white Ines De Santo dress.
Seed star Amanda Brugel, meanwhile, was not about to let a little thing like pregnancy get in the way of great style; she bravely sported a pair of towering yellow pumps with a funky, multi-coloured dress and matching manicure.
Even among the crowd of nearly 350 guests – and despite the distraction of cocktail shrimps, burger sliders, samosas and other yummy hors d’ouerves that were floating around the fête – it wasn’t hard to spot the other beautiful Canadians who had made our list this year.
Bachelor alums Jillian Harris and Sharleen Joynt were giggling excitedly for a photo-op when we noticed ice dancing gold medalist Tessa Virtue gliding across the party in a stunning black dress with sheer panels. Shopping Channel Host Denise Wade looked gorgeous in a magenta dress with a bejewelled neckline.
And while some guests watched the sun set over Toronto on the glittering terrace, other stars took advantage of our indoor photo booth — whose pictures became decidedly goofier as the evening progressed.

At the end of the night, the stars were gifted with swag bags filled to the brim with premium goodies, including O.N.E. coconut water, snacks and beauty products from Olay, Smashbox and Organix to help with the day’s recovery.
Until next year, beautiful Canadians!
