In or Out: Kate Beckinsale in Christian Dior

Posted on January 27, 2012

Yesterday, she went simple and sexy for her photocall. Today, things get a little more complicated.

The red Michael Kors was one of those dresses that doesn’t need a lot of styling (so long as you’ve got the body for the dress). All she needed to make that work was her bod, some big hair, and a big pair of shoes. A dress like this needs considerably more work and we’re not loving how this one shook out.

The dress is very pretty, but she needed really well-chosen accessories to set it off and … well … that’s not what we’re getting. We’re digging that cocktail ring but it’s lost against the white of the dress. Something showier, with a little more color and sparkle to it was called for here. We’re trying to come to terms with someone picking what looks like brown peeptoes to wear with a white dress and we just can’t do it. What the hell was the thinking there? Even if we can accept that it’s a trick of the light and they are, in fact, black peeptoes, that’s only mildly better. This is a dress calling out for silver sandals, there’s no getting around that.

And finally, there’s the Betty Crocker hair. We can only surmise she was drunk when she gave the okay to that one. Oh, Kate. From WERQ to questionable in 16 hours. That might be a T Lo record.

IN! Simple n’ pretty!


OUT! Half-assed n’ boring!

The Kittens loved Drew Barrymore for taking another risk but they couldn’t get behind her camo gown, reluctantly voting it OUT.
