Kate Beckinsale attends the Christian Dior Resort 2017 show at the Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, England.
Thank goodness (whoever that is) for the resort wear shows. Otherwise, how would we get our fix of celebrities modeling ridiculously expensive luxury goods in June, darlings? We would all be adrift in a world without unattainable aspirations or bitchy judgment. How dreary. Let’s do our part to stem the tide by assessing Miss Kate’s look, yes?
We dub this …. acceptable.
It’s pretty enough, although the print risks inducing a migraine if you stare at it too long and try to get those flowers in focus. We’re not feeling the satiny finish or the rather stiff-looking skirt or the side cutouts, but there’s such an overall sense of drama and French-infused chicness to the look that we’re willing to set aside most of our quibbles. We’re not feeling the underplayed makeup choices, but then again, she’s wearing a nighttime dress to a daytime event, so there was never going to be a “correct” way to do her makeup. Match the makeup to the dress and she looks overdone in this venue; go for a clean, daytime face and she looks underdone for the dress. These are the pitfalls of modeling luxury goods in the front row of French fashion shows, darlings. Pity the poor celebs.
Those shoes are gorgeous.
