The 2008 Toronto International Film Festival kicked off with a star-studded red carpet event, and as the TIFF 2008 photo gallery shows here, the mild early fall weather allowed for some pretty sexy outfits -- like Jennifer Aniston's scoop-necked little black dress and Keira Knightley's strapless charcoal fairy gown.

Truly living up to its nickname of Hollywood North, Toronto couldn’t be more infused A-list celebrities. Unlike in southern metropolitan where stars mingle, like LA and NYC, stars say they feel the Canadian city offers them much more privacy and respect from fans.

Of course rumors still whirled that Jennifer Aniston and her ex-husband Brad Pitt were spotted at dinner together — you could almost file that one under world news — but for the most part, Torontonians have been respectful.

The gallery shows some of the top TIFF 2008 fashions... so far. With a week to go still, there are sure to be even more dazzling designer reveals.

Alicia Keys in vibrant purple, strapless gown
