THE IT: Tommy Ton at Holts

Carine Roitfeld, editor-in-chief of Paris Vogue, photographed by Tommy Ton, the Oakville-born super snapper who now contributes to, and the Paris and Japanese editions of Vogue.

Tommy Ton first came across Carine Roitfeld in the pages of American Vogue‘s 2001 Age issue. First impressions? “Beautiful and mysterious.” But it wasn’t until years later when Ton was taking photos outside Paris Fashion Week that he really appreciated Roitfeld’s singular appeal. “She has a certain elegance and chicness, and she’s also incredibly kind to her fans and the people around her,” Ton said today, during a day of interviews at Holt Renfrew in Toronto.

Ton is at Holts for Pic Me Tommy Ton!, an exhibition of his photos, which are shown alongside the best of Holts’s Fall 2010 footwear. (Bonus! You receive a Tommy Ton print when you buy one of the selected styles.) The media cocktail is kicking off right now, but starting tomorrow (until August 30), you can stop by anytime and check out the show.
