Party photos of the week: Candice vs. Alison party

"It’s like baroque Barbie meets Xena the Warrior Princess,” said an awestruck guest at last week’s Candice vs. Alison party – a two-parter at the Malaparte terrace at the TIFF Bell Lightbox, with the first half of the evening dedicated to a white palette indoors and the second half an all-black-everything scheme outdoors. The event celebrated the fifth anniversary of the event planning duo Candice Chan and Alison Slight; the pair have been behind the scenes at some of Toronto’s most notable events since 2009, from concerts and fundraisers to weddings and fashion shows. Inside, orchid chandeliers and green topiaries played background to oysters and cake and all things nice. Once the clock struck nine, the glam crowd was ushered outdoors into Candice’s dark, twisted fantasy which featured a sprawling silver tree and an oversized horse lamp; even the roaming models changed from white to black bikinis. Happy anniversary!
