Kate Beckinsale flat out brings the heat to the red carpet — period. She's a pro at selecting sophisticated gowns with just a hint of sexy. Kate seems to know that suggesting, rather than overtly showing, is often the most eye-catching approach for formalwear. It's a strategy Kate's used for a variety of high-profile events recently, whether at the Sundance Film Festival or the Critics' Choice Awards.
And so Kate stunned yet again Tuesday at the Costume Designers Guild Awards in Los Angeles. Kate wore a black gown from the Serbian-based line Hamel, which, while appearing rather simple from the front, had an intricate lace button-up back. To better show the gown's special details, Kate wore her hair in a high ponytail. She finished the look with dangly diamond earrings and a simple rectangular clutch. Read on to see Kate's look from all angles.
