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”?

hmm… this look is rather avantgarde – the dress is more a costume than a dress. it gives the body a sculpted yet unfamiliar shape. so all the reactions to it are understandable. my opinion: very brave and kind of refreshing for an actress not to wear yet another glitzy something-frock…

love it… without the hose. she should have messed up her hair and jewelry- not so formal and done some great shoes. it’s a great dress- she just wore it incorrectly.

I love this look. It is very retro and I think that she pulls it off beautifully. She has a nuetral face and great toned arms and legs….she makes this look really effortless! I think its a keeper!

the dress looks ok on her. i think only someone with a fab body like hers can carry it off. she just shouldn’t have worn those stockings.

Slap some oversized sunglasses on her, and she would look like a California Raisin!
