Jian Ghomeshi hosted the 2011 Scotiabank Giller Prize gala on Tuesday, November 8th. The Giller Prize is Canada’s most distinguished literary award, awarding $50,000 annually to the finalist. This year’s finalist was Esi Edugyan who wrote her second novel Half-Blood Blues about jazz musicians in Europe during the Second World War.
Jian stopped by to pick up a Drykorn tuxedo (after much debate on whether he should do a suit or a tux, we were pushing for the tux), Stenstroms tuxedo shirt with studs, Ted Baker patent shoes and a Dion bowtie. To see more fashionable guests, visit The Star’s photo gallery.
