Incredible fashion and styling from this celebration of Black Canadian talent

"This is a casual Hugo Boss look," said Stephan James of the impeccable brown velvet tuxedo he wore on the Black Carpet that preceded the first-ever presentation of The Legacy Awards

James co-created and co-hosted the awards — which celebrate the achievements of both established and emerging Black Canadian talent — with brother Shamier Anderson, who also donned Hugo Boss. ("Chocolate brown for all those chocolate boys and girls," he said.) The broadcast event took place at History in Toronto, and the Black Carpet was full of glamourous and fashionable ensembles — many of which included pieces by Black Canadian designers.
