Kate Beckinsale In Armani Privé – ‘Total Recall’ LA Premiere

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?

    I would have preferred someone taller in this gown but at the same time not that many mainstream celebs have been attached to this collection so because of that I’ll overlook it. She has the body for any type of garnets that’s for sure. I wish the hair was a bit different from her normal appearance to do it justice, either totally sleeked up or pin straight. She still looks absolutely beautiful, how can she not she’s Kate Beckinsale!

    Love the dress, very mysterious and seductive, I’m sure it is amazing in person. Don’t like the hair – too romantic for this dress, the blonde tendrils are distracting.

      I just adore how the dress takes up her amazing figure and wraps itself around her..
      Its very very mysterious and seductive .. perfectly said Fiona !

      And +1 on all the points added by FC , change in hair and make up would have made the look PERFECT !

      ITA with you and FC. I love the dress. It’s great to see Kate mix things up a bit. I just wish she’d better matched the hair with the dress.

    The shoulder detail feels too pageant-y for my taste.

    GORGEOUS! Jessica Biel looks very pretty, but her choice of dress seems kind of incongruous to the kind of movie that Total Recall is…
    This on the other hand is a great match, dark and sexy and slick. Kate Beckinsale can do no wrong. Love her smile too!

    I think the dress is amazing but would’ve liked to see it on someone less ‘vanilla’. Her hair in this puffy prom queen style just kills it for me.

    • Bree August 3, 2012 at 01:24 #

      Haha. I’m actually glad vanilla Kate decided to wear something so beautiful and different.
