Kate Beckinsale In Alberta Ferretti – 2013 Met Gala


Kate Beckinsale took to the red carpet Monday night to support the Metropolitan Museum of Art at its annual Met Gala in New York.

The actress wore a pink frock from Alberta Ferretti with an Edie Parker clutch.

Wearing pink, the unofficial colour of the evening, Kate looked fantastic in a strapless, asymetrical, high-low dress.

Kate added punk accents via strappy shoes, and statement gold and silver geometric earrings and a matching ring.

And of course, we can’t forget her sexy meets sophisticated meets undone slept-in-my-makeup smokey eye that paired so well with her volume-injected mohwak.

Kate Beckinsale In Parker – 2013 TCM Classic Film Festival Opening Night Gala

Kate Beckinsale In Parker - 2013 TCM Classic Film Festival Opening Night Gala

Kate Beckinsale attended the ‘Funny Girl’ screening during the 2013 TCM Classic Film Festival Opening Night at TCL Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles, California wearing a very different look than we are used to seeing from her.

The queen of all things pretty and uber feminine stepped far out of her comfort zone, opting for a sharp Parker suit on this occasion, much to my surprise.

This is something I would expect to see worn by Karolina Kurkova or Solange Knowles, but I think Kate pulls off the look featuring avant-garde lapels, a black solid back and optical print – which adds a futuristic edge – rather nicely.

Styling the suit with a solid top was the best option, as was the simple accessories, which included sky-high Louboutins and a black Me Char clutch.

A bouffant bun and statement earrings provided the finishing touches.

Yay or nay?

Who Wore Gucci Better…Kate Beckinsale, Bipasha Basu or Gracie Otto?

Who Wore Gucci Better

For the Golden Globes InStyle After-Party, British actress Kate Beckinsale chose a Gucci Spring 2013 gown in a pretty pink colour over the saffron runway version.

Her ruffled column gown was styled with gold accessories, with her brunette locks swept up into an effortless bun.

Two weeks later, Bipasha Basu attended the 2013 Stardust Awards in Mumbai wearing the same dress in the runway hue, sadly over-accessorizing with an opulent necklace.

Four days later, the same gown hit the red carpet in Sydney, Australia courtesy of Gracie Otto. She opted for the minimalist route, simply adding a Gucci ‘Aristographic’ clutch from the same Spring 2013 collection.

Kate wins for me as I adore the gown in pink and her styling of this look; however, if I could ever afford this gown I would select the saffron hue.

Kate Beckinsale In Monique Lhuillier – 2013 Vanity Fair Party

Kate Beckinsale In Monique Lhuillier - 2013 Vanity Fair Party 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.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Kate Beckinsale’s Burberry Prorsum Fall 2013 Bags

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Kate Beckinsale's Burberry Prorsum 'Crush' Bags

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Kate Beckinsale both attended the Burberry Prorsum Fall 2013 presentation on Monday in London.

Rosie headed back to Los Angeles, arriving yesterday afternoon, while Kate, staying on in London, was spotted headed to dinner at Scott’s restaurant in Mayfair with David Walliams.

Both ladies carried fresh-off-the-runway Burberry Prorsum Fall 2013 bags that we had seen in the hands of Jourdan Dunn, Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss and Edie Campbell, getting the jump on everyone else.

The bag features structured panels contrasted with a soft inner pouch to create a ladylike shape which was presented in a variety of materials including Prorsum leather and calfskin. The leather drawcord fastening references classic outerwear closures and is a big feature through out all bags in the collection.

Wearing a laidback look with teal Isabel Marant fringed boots and a Saint Laurent ‘Babycat’ scarf, Rosie’s bag of choice featured heart-print calfskin.

Also wearing teal Boss coat with black J Brand ‘Blair’ leather pants, Kate’s selected the zebra-print calfskin bag.

If I had the choice between the two I think I would select Rosie’s as I love the sweet heart-print.

Burberry’s Fall 2013 presentation marked the debut of Runway Made to Order, a service that offers custom-made outerwear and bags from the collection featuring personalised engraved nameplates. Runway coats and bags are now available for two weeks on Burberry.com, for delivery in just nine weeks.
