I must say I was surprised that Kate Beckinsale didn’t go out with a big bang on the red carpet at the Palme d’Or Award Closing Ceremony during Cannes Film Festival.

I expected a big gown with loads of tulle and or a long train, but instead she gave us a beautifully romantic Nina Ricci gown Fall 2010 gown.

There was no updo for her last appearance either. She wore her hair down with soft waves cascading down her back.

Whilst she dazzled with the most spectacular earrings and bracelet I’ve seen over the two weeks, her subtle black tiered gown with sexy sheer and lace panels was simply accented with a black bow.

I think she’s done herself proud, as she’s been flawless though-out the Film Festival.
