It's hard to believe, but it's true: there is life outside of the Toronto International Film Festival. And a few of the movies that premiered at this year's TIFF have already rolled out the red carpet once again in other cities.
But did the stars impress with their outfits like they did in Toronto? Here are few comparisons:

Kristen Stewart made an elegant post-scandal debut in a knockout sheer Zuhair Murad dress at the opening of "On The Road" on Sept. 6 in Toronto. The floral sequined pattern showed off her a feminine side, while stick-straight hair and black pointy pumps were more of Stewart's usual severe style.
In New York on Sept. 10, Stewart turned up to "On The Road" screening in a much more casual, but no less arresting, black and white look. Pairing some dark ALC pants with a crisp Balenciaga button-up blouse, not to mention some modern Jimmy Choo heels, Stewart was crisp and classy. But she still vamped up her smoky-eye makeup and teased up-do to raise the "wow" factor.

Emma Watson is shedding her "Harry Potter" past with edgy but mature looks. And her Erdem dress at the TIFF premiere of "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" on Sept. 8 was a great example of how to do young and classy. Her short floral dress was eye-catching enough that she smartly kept it simple with a messy braid and dark pink lips.
In Los Angeles on Sept. 10, Watson went much more ethereal with a tiered, floor-length Giorgio Armani gown. The nude tone and thin halter neckline made sure that, though she was covered, there was still plenty of drama. Maybe a little too much drama, actually -- let's just say, whoever recommended the nipple pastie should be getting a huge Christmas bonus.
At a New York City screening of "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" on Sept. 13, Watson was back to business in an all-white ensemble. Her dramatic Brood mini-dress matched a pair of white heels with a large silver feather ring and a pop of colour around her eyes. After her wardrobe malfunction in L.A., her NYC outfit showed off her side-boob without a slip.

While he obviously preferred to walk the red carpet in jeans and t-shirts (as he did for both "Cloud Atlas" and "The Master"), Joseph Gordon Levitt dressed it up for the gala premiere of "Looper" to kick off TIFF on Sept. 6. And it proves he can really make any look work -- his double-breasted pinstripe Thom Browne suit was a vision in navy.
After leaving TIFF, JGL jetted over to Chicago to screen "Looper" beside director Rian Johnson on Sept. 10. In jeans, sneakers, and a subtle plaid button-down, Levitt looked much more at ease than in the suit, but equally drool-worthy.
