Kate Beckinsale in Christian Dior at the Berlin photocall for Underworld: Awakening

Kate Beckinsale in a white dress

Kate Beckinsale is currently busy promoting Underworld: Awakening, and today she’s doing it in a white Christian Dior “crumbcatcher” dress. It’s white, because Kate Beckinsale almost always wears wear. She must be a very tidy eater/drinker is all we can say. Or, hey, maybe that’s what the crumbcatcher is for?

Speaking of which, let’s talk crumbcatcher bodices: they’re starting to be a bit of a red carpet trend. In just the last couple of weeks we’ve caught both Elle MacPherson and Andrea Riseborough in them. Kate’s forms the shape of a giant, sideways bow, but, as with most dresses in this style, it does add a bit of bulk to the front of the outfit, which is why we’re always on the fence about this kind of style.

What do YOU think?

    I LOVE that dress! It looks fantastic on her; I’d love to see it in person and check out the detail. The “crumbcatcher” doesn’t bother me on this one.

    I like it, but not the shoes.

    The crumb-catcher doesn´t bother me, it sort of balances off the bow detail. It´s her silly hair and shoes that I don´t like.

    I always think crumb catchers look like the dress doesn’t fit properly and is about to fall off

    I don’t care for the style, but I think she’s wearing it well.

    i like the length of the dress and she looks good in it. red carpet dresses are usually long so for a sorter length dress it’s fine and i do like the white and the fact that it’s plain and doesn’t have all the tacky beading.
