Kate's Bubble Dress: Love It or Hate It?

09/26/2006 at 11:08 AM ET

If you’ve seen Kate Beckinsale fighting the undead in a second-skin latex bodysuit, you know that she has a body worth flaunting. Yet, at an event in Germany this past weekend, Kate passed on any number of body-hugging dresses and chose this voluminous satin frock instead. Always in step with the latest fashion, Kate is showing off one of fall’s biggest trends, the bubble dress. We’ve already seen volume, but the bubble is more contained at the hem, while still showing off toned arms and legs. And the soft rosettes at the neckline do direct attention to Kate’s lovely face and defined shoulders. Would you wear this dress? What do you think of the “bubble”?

It looks cute on HER!

I don’t particularily like it but she can pull it off.

the dress makes her look fat, she should’ve gone with a skirt, not a dress.

Love it. This is a classic example of the differences between these actresses that’s not discussed enough. Beckinsale exudes natural elegance and class that not every starlet/celebrity has despite them being wildly promoted in the press as style icons. Beckinsale has “it”, and so she can sell this look. Other actresses w/ a similar “it” factor would be Thandie Newton, Nicole Kidman, Audrey Tatou, Kate Bosworth, Charlize Theron, Cate Blanchett, Halle Berry, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Mischa Barton, and Natalie Portman.

She is a beautiful woman, but the dress is hideous.

You really have to have some height on you to wear this,or you could end up looking like an oompa loompa! She can pull it off, but it’s not for eveyone. She is such a beauty why would she wear this dress anyway?

Kate looks great. I like this look.

Annette on

Would I wear this? No, not in a million. It doesn’t matter how skinny someone is–she still looks like the Fig Newton man from that commercial so long ago.

Eileen Corea on

That’s hideous – What was she thinking? Just because someone somewhere declares that a particular item is “hot” doesn’t mean it is.

that dress is hilarious!
