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”?

I don’t really like the bubble minis, but Kate makes it look alright, on other people I don’t like it.

I think the whole bubble dress & balloon skirt thing is kinda stupid. It just makes people look “fluffier”. Lol.

It makes her look like a Muffin upside down.
I, am not sure I would call that style more like a bad nightmare.

She looks like she is trying to hide a preggers belly….hmmmm?????

Kate Beckinsale is just gorgeous. I think she has beautiful eyes. I don’t particularly care for that dress, but I guess we should praise her for trying something different. ;-)

Kate Beckinsale is a beautiful woman and as someone stated on here, she is very underrated. I like the dress and she can pull it off well, but I think to make it even more better, she shouldn’t of worn the leatarts or whatever you call them, pantyhose or whatever. I also think that the look would have a great finish if she would have done her hair a little differently. I love her face and how it glows, but I just think her hairdo is pulling her face back. I love the fact that she showcases her beautiful face, but I would love to see a different hairstyle. So in my eyes, the dress is great for her, but loose the pantyhose and do a different hairstyle. Other than that, Kate is gorgeous no matter what.

She’s a beautiful lady. No extra points for so called “Fashion dress”

I could NEVER pull it off. But of course SHE can.
