Kate Beckinsale practically exploded onto the scene with her glittery gown at the the 2013 Vanity Fair Party, hosted at the Sunset Tower in West Hollywood.
Like some other Oscars after-party favourites, including Naomie Harris and Ginnifer Goodwin, Kate stunned in Monique Lhuillier—except her confection was fresh off its Fall 2013 runway debut at New York Fashion Week.
The designer’s collection was red-carpet worthy, so I’m glad the British actress gave this embellished tulle piece some time in the spotlight.
The deco-like embroidery reminded me of a fireworks grand finale, while the above-the-ankle length was a delightful change from the flock of floor-grazing gowns seen on Sunday night.
Kate let her dress have all the sparkle, only accessorizing with small Chopard diamond studs and a simple pair of black ankle-strap heels.
A youthful high ponytail finished this look with a fun flourish.
