Star Style War: Biel Vs Beckinsale, Round 2

Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale at the UK premiere of Total Recall

As we’re sure you officers know, Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale are currently duking it out in a Star Style War, fought on the red carpets of the world as the pair promote their movie, Total Recall.

In the last round of the Style War, Jessica wore black, while Kate wore white, in a kind of “good guy/bad guy” parody. Just to keep things fair – and possibly to confuse us – they’ve switched sides for round two, appearing at the UK premiere in a neat little reversal of their previous outfits, so this time Jessica’s the one in white, while Kate sticks to black.

Last time out, Kate just pipped Jessica, although it was a close-run thing. We reckon this round will be just as close, because we have to say, they both look absolutely gorgeous. Seriously, don’t these women look amazing?

Only one can emerge victorious, however, so tell us: who’s the winner of this Star Style War?

    Kate definitely wins this round. Her dress is sexy, not kooky, and her hair does not look like it belongs on a third-grader.

    Kate wins for sure! Sorry, Jessica, I don’t like peplums. Especially not fuzzy ones.

    Feathers, a shirt-style collar and a dickie? Yikes. The black dress is elegant and classy in comparison. And I generally don’t like a great big bow, but it blends well.

    Girl on the left: Ew.
    Girl on the right: Better, but could do without the bow. She looks like a present.

    I think they both look silly. I actually prefer Jessica’s outfit though because she went full-on over-the-top. Kate looks like she wanted to do the same but got nervous at the last minute.

    Kate wins.
    It’s nothing super-spectacular, but the overall look is elegant and the pieces fit together nicely.
    Jessica’s outfit looks patched together from many different pieces that try to steal each other’s spotlight. The shirt collar, the feathery peplum, the patterned skirt, and the flashy shoes would all have been fun if they were the only embellishment of an otherwise plain dress. Here each of them screams “LOOK AT MEEEEE!!!” so loudly that you don’t know where to look first.
    In addition Jessica is unfortunately back to trying to make her face look as unobtrusive as possible. And I was so happy when she finally wore bright red lipstick that one day…

    If Beckinsale put on Biel’s shoes, she would be a slam dunk. Biel cannot be saved here anyway. Too much froufrou and not enough style.
