Kate Beckinsale In Rag & Bone – ‘Total Recall’ Panel Comic-Con 2012

Kate Beckinsale gave comic book fans something to talk about when she stepped out for the ‘Total Recall’ panel on Friday at Comic-Con in San Diego, California.

Clad in a Rag & Bone ‘Silver’ tuxedo jacket, Rag & Bone leather pants, Christian Louboutin ankle boots and a Tom Binns necklace, Beckinsale certainly dressed the part of a strong heroine ready to give anyone a run for their money.

Beckinsale balances the loud sartorial voice of the silver blazer with solid black from the waist down, avoiding a kitschy look and instead creating a fun but stunning ensemble. The soft, nude tones of her makeup and large loose waves maintain a sense of femininity in a look that could easily come off as severe.

I love the way the large Tom Binns necklace compliments Beckinsale’s blouse — there is a distinct continuity in the entire look.

Do you like Beckinsale’s look? Or do you think it leaves something to be desired?

Miranda Kerr In Celine – Out In New York City

Miranda Kerr once again proved her fashion prowess off the runway while out shopping in NYC.

The model took to the streets in floral pants from Celine’s 2012 Resort collection. Pairing the flower-frenzy trousers with nude stilettos, a rich burgundy Sofia Coppola for Louis Vuitton bag, Prada shades and a grey, muted striped tee, Kerr gave the pants a decidedly off-duty-model look — and rightly so.

Phoebe Philo’s ability to breathe fresh life into tried and true prints is part of Celine’s great appeal, and Kerr’s nod to the power of a bold pattern is evident in her lack of accessories and heavy makeup.

I love Kerr’s NYC look and think it’s a perfect example of low-key summer style. What do you think? Is this an outfit you would try out for yourself?

You can buy Miranda’s Prada sunglasses from Neiman Marcus.

Emily Blunt In Christian Dior – ‘Looper’ Panel: Comic-Con 2012

Emily Blunt, who is a fan favorite both on and off the screen, attended the ‘Looper’ panel Friday at Comic-Con International 2012, held in San Diego, California.

Blunt was the image of ladylike perfection in a cream Christian Dior dress. While we’ve seen stars take a much more literal interpretation of the Comic-Con dresscode (paging Jessica Biel), Blunt does manage to spice up her demure frock with a good old pop of color — courtesy of Sergio Rossi and Anna Beck jewels.

I love Blunts bold lip and no-fuss accessories, but since Comic-Con is the perfect opportunity to get a little playful with wardrobe choices, it would have been fun to see her take a step outside of the proverbial box. A statement necklace or bold belt would have added another dimension to Dior’s “perfect for tea” creation.

What do you think? Are you head over heels for Blunt’s comic book chic look? Or do you think she could have pushed the envelope a little more?
