WHO: Elley-Ray Hennessy, actor/director/humanitarian
WHEN: Friday afternoon
WHERE: Queen and River
CLOTHING: "My boots are from John Fluevog ($250, 242 Queen West, 416-581-1420). A little pricey for me but they've lasted forever. My jogging pants are from Lululemon ($35, 342 Queen West, 416-703-1399, and others). I've also got these great wraparound pants on that my friend Kristina Nicoll gave me. They both help hold the expanding butt in! This skirt my friend Nejla gave to me is so great because it has many different materials and I can wear it high or low. My zip-up top is from B2 ($35, 399 Queen West, 416-595-9281, and others). The bed jacket over it is from FX ($50, 515 Queen West, 416-504-0888). I have a bunch of necklaces on. One is a long life empowerment necklace from the venerable Chöje Lama Namse. I've got some Buddist prayer beads on, too, a gift from my friend Ed Roy. And I've got some wooden beads from Africa. This scarf is from the outdoor market at St. Lawrence Market (92 Front East, 416-392-7120). I found this jacket on the floor at Winners (Dufferin Mall, 416-534-9774, and others). It was only $39.99! I still can't believe it. I love that place. My mom, Shirley, got me this hat. I switch glasses with my agent every once in a while. The ones I have on are hers. Unfortunately I've lost them, which totally sucks - for her, and me!"
HAIR: "Mikah Styles (89 Granby, 416-960-2388). He totally rocks. Even does my wigs for shows."
MY STYLE: "Bohemian Gypsy meets Pippi Longstocking"
INTO: "Curating the 'white' night for the Interior Design Show at the Direct Energy Centre (February 22-25). It's the opening night gala party. Directing my film, Zbäw; working on the African Caribbean magazine called Axiom I'm putting out starting in May. Helping my friend Zuzana Hahn put together the Hearts Open Toronto Fundraiser - it raises money for many charities in Toronto; sleeping with my two pugs; going on vacation with my mom or taking off to Africa to help with the House of Hope in Uganda."
