Kate Beckinsale went for a totally different look on the red carpet yesterday evening for the ‘Total Recall’ LA premiere.

Known for her love of frothy girlie glam, she opted for an Armani Privé Spring 2012 reptilian gown.

I love this dramatic look for Kate.

The strapless gown with a sculptural detail at the front and back looked like a python had snaked itself around her perfect figure, with the green hue popping against the dark background making her stand out on a packed red carpet.

I would’ve loved Kate to have opted for a slicked-back do instead of this braided updo with loose tendrils. Kohl-rimmed eyes would’ve also played up the dark mysterious nature of her gown.

Under her gorgeous gown she wore Brian Atwood black satin ‘Hamper’ pumps plus she added Lorraine Schwartz black diamond-drop earrings and a white-and-black diamond band ring completed her look.

I have a feeling this might be a marmite gown.

Do you love it or hate it?
