Kate Beckinsale In Oscar de la Renta & Elie Saab Couture - Qingdao Oriental Movie Metropolis Ceremony

Kate Beckinsale joined Nicole Kidman for the launch ceremony of the Qingdao Oriental Movie Metropolis in Qingdao, China earlier today.

Her first look was an ultra chic two-piece Oscar de la Renta Spring 2014 ivory dress with a black jersey waist, which was pepped up with red-hot Brian Atwood ‘Cassandra’ pumps. I just love the retro styling with the chic bouffant accented with a black headband.

Upping the style stakes for the second look; the British actress wore a beautiful nude Elie Saab Couture gown from the Fall 2012 collection featuring a high-neckline, open back and gold appliqués which she styled with nude Brian Atwood ‘Wagner’ peep-toes (shockingly, as she hardly ever wears peep-toes), dazzling jewels and a high ponytail.

This may surprise you, but I adore the first look. Mostly because it’s such a different look for her, but also the red pumps sell this look to me.

It’s great to see her back on the red carpet.
