Kate Beckinsale @ 2009 MET Costume Institute Gala Benefit

Photo Credit: Bauer-Griffin

Not only is Kate Beckinsale downright gorgeous, but she also knows how to rake in the bucks at the box-office (unlike other thankless hotties like Jessica Alba). Ever since her career started back in 1991, all her movies combined have nearly grossed a cool billion dollars in worldwide sales (it’s actually $791,492,436, but since we love her so much, we rounded up).

She is very glamorous, she makes me weak in the knees.

i like it. it looks glamorous without looking too girly or cinderella-like because of: the color, and the dropped waist. if the waist had been higher it wouldve looked silly, as it would have too if it had been in a light color like pink or something. but i think its ok

What a huge dress. On page 2, I thought some dwarfs were going to jump out from under the skirt. Kate's stylist dropped the ball on this one.

In the after pic on the first link, she reminds me of Marisa Tomei.

So, yeah . . .

I dont really see anything wrong. People's faces change over time. Its called aging. She had a kid at a relatively young age plus shes had to gain/lose weight for various movie roles. Nobody looks the same as they did 10-15 years ago. If shes had any work done then its really minor and doesnt negate anything.

Where's Goli with his scissors to adjust the length of her dress when you need him?

I will take an "overrated" and "boring" Kate Beckinsale anytime!

...why didn't u just choke all together???

wow

She was easily the most beautiful woman there. I'm not too sure about the dress. If it were on anyone else it would be a disaster but only she can pull that off. If you think shes "overrated" and "boring" that's just YOUR opinion. She doesn't have to prove anything to anyone by dressing like a whore/idiot all the time. If you want to talk about overrated go look at Megan fox. Yeah i said it.

underwhelming and overrated. the most exciting thing about this picture is that fetching feathery/furry frock she is 'rocking'. CHANGE YOUR FUCKING HAIR FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 10 YEARS, KATE.
