Kate Beckinsale In Vivienne Westwood – Porsche Design 40th Anniversary Event

Kate Beckinsale blended into the background in blue at an event celebrating the 40th anniversary of Porche design in LA on Tuesday.

The British actress looked beautiful in a sequined Vivienne Westwood dress, though I’m fairly sure she chose it to stand out from the fashionable crowd, not to match the interior.

Nevertheless, the dress, with its quintessentially Westwood neckline and gathering at the waist, suited Kate perfectly – adding volume where needed and skimming her figure to highlight her svelte frame.

The white bag and matching Christian Louboutin mesh pumps added unexpected and refreshing tones to the ensemble.

Kate Beckinsale’s ‘Total Recall’ Promo Tour Hair

British beauty Kate Beckinsale has been consistently wowing us on the red carpet with her flawless skin and fabulous hair.

Tinseltown colourist Tracey Cunningham, who is also responsible for co-star Jessica Biel’s pretty ombre locks, created Kate’s new look for the ‘Total Recall’ promo tour.

Tracey said: “Kate is the classic brunette beauty. I love the golden chestnut brown we created for her. We rarely do highlights but I went for it this time. The result? Perfection.”

Meanwhile, stylist Mara Roszak created a range of looks for Kate throughout the ‘Total Recall’ press junket from undone updos to glamorous retro waves. Mara gave us the scoop on her ‘must-have’ products to create any style.

Greyl Voluforme Hairspray – It’s a great lightweight hairspray that can be brushed through and moulded, yet still gives the hair a great hold.

Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray – A “texturizer” for the hair. It makes the hair feel like you’ve spent a day at the beach.

Batiste Dry Shampoo – It’s not only great for second-day hair, but also for styling! It gives the hair a great voluminous fluffy texture, perfect for updos.

Phyto Phytovolume Spray – A must-have for blow-drying hair. Everyone benefits from a little lift at the roots, and that’s exactly what this product does without weighing the hair down.

Greyl Eclat Natural – It’s the perfect lightweight cream to use on dry hair, to break up the style and calm frizz.

Kate Beckinsale In Preen – Corinthia Hotel

Prior to the ‘Total Recall’ London premiere, Kate Beckinsale was spotted returning to the Corinthia Hotel after a round of interviews.

Despite the patches of rain throughout the day, she glowed on the streets of London wearing a Preen ‘Sara’ dress from the Resort 2013 collection.

Her short-sleeved jacquard dress, featuring contrasting two-tone leopard stamped prints and pleating at the waist, has been shortened from the dress presented on the model.

The shorter look is much preferred on Kate who often wears knee-length frocks.

White Walter Steiger pumps (eek), a high ponytail and Dana Rebecca Designs statement earrings completed her look.

Kate Beckinsale In Donna Karan – ‘Total Recall’ London Premiere

Kate Beckinsale puts herself in the running for ‘best promo tour of the year’ with yet another stunning red-carpet look at the ‘Total Recall’ London premiere this evening.

The British actress looked breathtaking wearing another Donna Karan gown, this time from the Fall 2012 collection.

Her black strapless gown with a bow accent and glittery sequin details is one of her finest looks so far.

With the glamorous gown as the centrepiece, Kate opted for subtle Rona Pfeiffer earrings with a simple beauty regime consisting of wavy locks and glossy nude lips.

Strappy sandals would’ve perfected this look, but we all know that Kate loves to wear pumps. On this occasion she selected Ferragamo satin pumps.
