During the 2010 Cannes Film Festival British actress Kate Beckinsale was one of the judges.

Despite many of you questioning her credentials, I was purely happy to see Kate in at least 2 frocks everyday for 2 weeks.

One of those frocks from the Balmain Spring 2011 collection.

At the “Biutiful” Premiere Kate wore this stunning black sequin Balmain gown with a thigh-high split.

A black gold studded belt completed her look.

Celine Dion wore the same dress when she performed at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas this week.

She only added Giuseppe Zanotti heels and voluminous hair to her look.

Kate wins for me despite the pumps, because I much prefer this look with a waist-defining belt.
