Kate Beckinsale In Tadashi Shoji – 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards Nominations

Kate Beckinsale attended a press conference at The London Hotel in West Hollywood today with actor Anthony Mackie to announce the nominations for the 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards.

The British actress showed off her long, toned legs wearing a Tadashi Shoji Spring 2012 dress.

Her beautiful white and nude tulle cocktail dress was made considerably shorter. Thankfully she did this by hitching up the dress higher instead of ruin that gorgeous embroidered lace hemline.

Kate didn’t add many accessories, just a pair of nude Brian Atwood pumps and ivory drop earrings.

Glossy waves and glossy lips completed her look.

    she has great legs, but she is also not 20 anymore. I find this too short and tight, looks like a footballer’s gf.

    The dress on the runway is so lovely.

      Yep too short and tight. I would have liked this if I didn’t have the runway picture to compare it to, she’s forcing the sexy here…not good.

      i couldnt understand what is the purpose of getting dress out of runway version because it doesnt look like dress (short or long) anymore. but i think age doesnt have anything to do with this. even 50 years old can short dresses, or 70.

    She has great legs. I can see why she wants to show them but this looks like a top on her and not a dress. I think she should have worn this as such or either chose something else to wear cuz this is kinda short.

    Way too short, she basically turned the dress into a top. (which might have worked on Kate Bosworth). The hair is distracting, should`ve pulled it back.

    The shorter version ruins the dress. I thought for a moment that the bottom parts was some weird panties.
    She would have looked lovely in the runway version. This forced sexiness was a bad choice.

      Agree with everything

    • Jessica November 30, 2011 at 05:01 #

      agree with everything you have said. & i think even if she kept the runway version, she would still show off her legs & look sexier without trying too hard. It’s to bad, I usually like what she wears!

    She’s beautiful, but there’s something odd about this dress in this lenght. Like there’s too much fabric on the upper half and too few from her waist down.

    • Nat November 29, 2011 at 18:42 #

      Ok, I re-read my comment and I’m sorry for my English. I hope I made my point. though. 😉

      • Rebecca Z November 29, 2011 at 18:46 #

        Everything you said was correct–both content and English. She ruined the dress–looks like lingerie the way she presented it, and it’s too bad.

      • Hannah November 29, 2011 at 20:18 #

        No your english was perfect. I agree completely with Rebecca Z. The proportion of fabric above and below the waist is wrong. Also, I know she’s borderline open-toe phobic, but would it kill her every ocne in while to wear something less clunky than a pump (inevitably in black or nude)?

        • Nat November 30, 2011 at 18:20 #

          Thank you to both of you, Rebecca and Hannah.

          Oh, and I absolutely agree about the shoes!

        • mari November 30, 2011 at 20:30 #

          I agree, she doesn’t like to show her toes at all. There are a few rare pics of her feet and she probably has long oes or maybe she doesn’t like the differnt lenght of them.
          These particular shoes she’s wearing here are nice, not that clunky, but isn’t that “skirt” awful?
          the worse I’ve seen her wearing in a long time.

    • gurlygurl November 30, 2011 at 06:15 #

      Agreed! I wish she’d kept the runway legnth it’s so much for feminine and elegant. This looks unbalanced but gosh darn it she does have great pins and the color is stunning on her.

  6. karen November 29, 2011 at 19:48 #

    I think she looks great from the waist up. Too short for her or on anyone because the proportions are off.

  7. mcm November 29, 2011 at 19:49 #

    One word: PJs

  8. Kyriaki-Cyprus November 29, 2011 at 20:17 #

    The longer version is way better!

  9. Katerina - Greece November 30, 2011 at 07:26 #

    The distance between sexy and tacky is two inches…

  10. Emi November 30, 2011 at 09:06 #

    I think that the shorter version is not that classy but let me say that she’s so beautiful that I don’t mind at all. She looks like a living doll!!! And she can’t look tacky because being tacky for me is something that comes from inside, it’s an attitude. That’s my opinion.

    • Alina November 30, 2011 at 09:55 #


      She doesn’t look tacky at all.

  11. J November 30, 2011 at 23:06 #

    She’s got amazing legs and can rock this look, but I do like the runway version better.

  12. Jess2 December 1, 2011 at 03:04 #

    She looks beautiful and rocks the look but the dress is a bit too short. The top section looks awesome and I think the tight skirt would have been fine if it was a bit longer.

  13. Jen December 2, 2011 at 04:34 #

    what the hell? these are pajamas!

  14. paula December 2, 2011 at 23:15 #

    As far as I’m concerned, Kate’s outfit is truly lovely and I have totally nothing against the dress being shortened- her legs are out of this world :)

  15. Terry December 19, 2011 at 03:48 #

    This makes everything so ceompltely painless.

  16. gaby May 10, 2012 at 23:05 #
