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”?

First off I think Kate is one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood and she is very underrated. I pretty much think she would look fantastic in anything she wears. This dress isn’t the best for her figure, but I also think it wouldn’t be so bad if she lost the pantyhose and went natural. That would have made it look better.

She ripped this off from Missy Elliot. A big plastic bag looks good on no one.

Umpa lompa or deflated M&M

Horrible.. what does this have to do with Cabaret???? a bubble skirt is kind of cool, but a whole dress is just awful. Especially in satin… horrible material for this .. cotton jersey would be much more flattering on anybody.

***I*** would not wear THIS dress as I am older (or should I say maturer)…however…If it were a bit longer I may…I like the draping and the color.

I don’t think that I could pull this dress off but she sure can. She looks beautiful, like always!

I love it! Fashion isn’t always about wearing figure hugging clothes. Volume is in right now and when done correctly, like on Kate, it can look awesome. I also like the black tights with it and I like that her makeup and hair is plain since the dress is such a stand out item.

If I had Kate Beckinsale’s body, I’d wear it! It would look even better on someone taller. The dress is unique and the plain color, lack of accessories, and pulled-back hair keep it elegant. Way to go, Kate!

Kate is so gorgeous, and the dress doesn’t compliment her body at all. This is one of the fall trends that I will NEVER wear.

yuk! Though it’s great for 8 month pregnant women…
