Proof Caribana Is The Most Stylish Parade In The World (PHOTOS)

Caribana festivities kicked off at the beginning of July but the highlight of the Toronto Caribbean Carnival is unquestionably the Caribana Parade, which takes place on Saturday, August 2.

Not only is the parade a free pass to wear as little as possible (blame the heat!) but it also allows you to wear all the feathers, neon and bling you want.

So thank God then for Parade revellers, who every year get decked out in their Caribana finest, complete with vibrant colours, tiny bikinis, jaw-dropping makeup and headdresses that eclipse all the celebs playing dress-up at Coachella.

Sure, the peeps at the Pride Parade can get really creative (it's all that leather), but the Caribana dancers have that special flair that's hard to forget.

So, to celebrate Caribana Weekend, here's proof that the parade is the most stylish in the world:

The makeup is flawless

Women of all ages are celebrated

They look amazing even when talking on their cell phones


The bright colours make everyone wanna dance

Colours that normally clash, don't clash during Caribana

Peacock feathers are embraced here

Feathers and face paint have never looked so good together

You can't wear too many bracelets

Everyone must wear a headdress

The more feathers the better

Just, wow

Never has false eyelashes made you this happy

But seriously, the costumes are the best
