Nothing unites the rich—and even richer still—better than self-adulation at Holt Renfrew, so it was no shock to see Toronto’s swishiest milling about the second-floor shoe department for Holts’ “You Got Coveteur’d” event, celebrating the website from Erin Kleinberg, Stephanie Mark and Jake Rosenberg, which looks into the closets of fashion’s hottest plates. Some of the ladies present had already been profiled, including Flare’s Liz Cabral, who wore enormous lime-green sleeves befitting an ’80s prom dress, and Suzanne Rogers, who was subdued in a taupe, lacy number. Check out the scene at Holt Renfrew in a gallery after the jump.

The newly profiled philanthropist Sylvia Mantella exposed some midriff, and countless socialites-in-training showed off their best neon ensembles in hopes, we assume, that their own closets would soon be profiled. As we sipped on gin cocktails, like the Coveteur Collins and the Shoe Closet Gimlet (also known as a Tom Collins and a gimlet), we wondered who among eTalk host Ben Mulroney, PR professional Michelle Levy, proprietor Richard Lambert, designers Caillianne and Samantha Beckerman, designer Philip Sparks and more would be the next to be coveteur’d (which, for the record, is not an actual verb).
