Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Kate Beckinsale went for a totally different look on the red carpet yesterday evening for the ‘Total Recall’ LA premiere.

Known for her love of frothy girlie glam, she opted for an Armani Privé Spring 2012 reptilian gown.

I love this dramatic look for Kate.

The strapless gown with a sculptural detail at the front and back looked like a python had snaked itself around her perfect figure, with the green hue popping against the dark background making her stand out on a packed red carpet.

I would’ve loved Kate to have opted for a slicked-back do instead of this braided updo with loose tendrils. Kohl-rimmed eyes would’ve also played up the dark mysterious nature of her gown.

Under her gorgeous gown she wore Brian Atwood black satin ‘Hamper’ pumps plus she added Lorraine Schwartz black diamond-drop earrings and a white-and-black diamond band ring completed her look.

I have a feeling this might be a marmite gown.

Did Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale coordinate looks for their ‘Total Recall’ photocall which took place at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles on Saturday?

I ask because they wore similar hue short dresses with a dash of red and Brian Atwood pumps.

Kate looked beautiful as always wearing a beige halter Christian Dior number with a high neckline accented with a slim black belt to cinch in her waist.

She accessorized with sky-high red Brian Atwood ‘Hamper’ pumps and Dana Rebecca Designs quartz earrings, which earned her a compliment from costar Jessica as the two met outside the venue on their arrival.

Kate rocked her enviable tresses into a high ponytail with side swept bangs and a glossy pink lip colour to complete her look.

Kate Beckinsale, who turned 39 today, made a guest appearance on Conan on Wednesday evening to promote her new movie, ‘Total Recall’.

The British actress plays one of the central villains in the movie, but it almost wasn’t to be.

Apparently, the actress was originally the front runner to play the three-breasted woman (played by Kaitlyn Leeb).

Of course, that was the main topic of conversation.

The British actress wore a Thomas Wylde Spring 2012 dress for the occasion.

Her form-fitting LBD with ruffled details was styled with J/Hadley earrings and Rona Pfeiffer rings.

I’m positive she wore this dress with black pumps with this look.

Kate’s co-star Jessica Biel, was also doing the TV rounds last night on Jay Leno.

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.

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