About The Contessa Gala 

To crown the Contessa winners, an über-glam gala is held every year in Toronto where the winners are announced to a full house of more than 1,000 guests.

The event kicks off with lavish cocktail party, which is your chance to rub shoulders with the best of the best in the industry. Following a delicious dinner, awards are presented as well as three inspiring and innovative presentations from expert stylists at the top of their game (see past years presentations on the Contessa video page). The evening ends with a ‘guest-list only’ after-party at one of the poshest clubs in town. Tickets sell out every year, so buy early!

You can relive the 2016 gala here or watch the Contessa highlights video.
