Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Tuesday night the lovely Kate Beckinsale once again appeared on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.’

The ‘Total Recall’ star went with understated elegance for her on-air look, choosing an Elie Saab dress from the 2012 Pre-Fall collection.

When done correctly, a one shoulder dress can provide just the right amount of intrigue, which a weathered designer like Saab is certainly capable of. The dress itself fit Beckinsale like a glove, but it was her hair and shoes that I feel didn’t do the frock justice.

Although Beckinsale looks beautiful with large, loose curls, wearing her hair over the revealed shoulder makes the dress appear awkward and incomplete. A look like this begs for an updo, which would show off the silhouette of the dress.

While I appreciate the elegance of simplicity, a higher shoe with a small amount of embellishment would have amped up the entire ensemble and made the knee-length hemline more flattering.

There is nothing agregiously wrong with Beckinsale’s ‘Tonight Show’ choices, but I believe that the actress is certainly capable of more.

Do you think this is one of Kate Beckinsale’s better looks? Or were you hoping for something with a little more style know-how?

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.

Kate Beckinsale was spotted in the press room of the 2012 MTV Movie Awards following her presenting duties with Jessica Biel.

The British actress wore a Christian Dior dress.

Her light-pink turtleneck ¾ length sleeve dress was paired with a snakeskin Kotur clutch and eggplant Ferragamo pumps.

I love the clutch, but Kate’s footwear choices continue to baffle me.

Once again she opts for a high ponytail and barely-there makeup.

Kate Beckinsale joined the many stars who donned a black frock for Spike TV’s ‘Guys Choice Awards’ held on Saturday at the Sony Studios in LA.

The British actress collected her ‘Jean-Claude Gahd Dam’ award wearing a Tom Ford Fall 2012 dress.

We have seen this LBD once before. Jennifer Lawrence wore it to the Paris premiere for ‘The Hunger Games’ back in March.

Jennifer opted to open the gold zipper all the way to her waist, whilst Kate kept her frock zipped up.

A high ponytail, nude lips and Christian Louboutin black pumps completed Kate’s sexy chic look.

Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale and Colin Farrell are all in Cancun, Mexico, for the ‘Total Recall’ photocall which was held during Summer of Sony 4 Spring Edition at the Ritz Carlton Hotel.

Jessica opted for a laidback look pairing an orange Giambattista Valli tank top with Giambattista Valli printed trousers from the Pre-Fall 2012 collection.

She accessorized with tan Giambattista Valli sandals and a stack of statement Irit bracelets. Blunt-cut bangs and wavy locks completed her look.

Kate looked flawless wearing a J. Mendel dress.

Her sexy LBD with a leather asymmetrical neckline and thigh-high split was teamed with nude Nicholas Kirkwood pumps and Broken English earrings.

Tumbling ombre waves completed her look.

A vision of perfection, as always.

Kate Beckinsale was the first to wear this flirty Tadashi Shoji Spring 2012 dress whilst attending a press conference to announce the nominations for the 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards back in November last year.

She made the nude tulle, lace cocktail dress that much sexier by hitching it up to show off her long, toned legs.

Wavy locks and her favourite Brian Atwood pumps completed her look.

Fan Bingbing wore the same dress last month to the Mmax Future Pictures Festival in Beijing, China.

She also adjusted the dress to make it appear shorter plus she also wore nude pumps, but the looks couldn’t be more different.

Kate wins for me.

Fan looks incredibly washed out and I don’t like the hat on this occasion.
