Kate Beckinsale got glamorous in a Vivienne Westwood dress to attend Porsche Design's 40th Anniversary event at a private home in LA last night. Kate's husband, Len Wiseman, was by her side for the outing that came after their busy promotional tour together this Summer. Len directed Kate's latest blockbuster, Total Recall, in which she starred opposite of Jessica Biel and Colin Farrell. The couple took the film around Europe with stops in Dublin, Berlin, and London earlier this month alongside both Colin and Jessica.
Kate Beckinsale's makeup at London's Total Recall premiere was a lesson in smoky eyes and pink accents. Makeup artist Molly Stern used Laura Mercier and RéVive products to give the British actress a glow, from the RéVive Intensité Moisture Serum Extrême to the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance and Shimmer Bloc in Pink Tourmaline. That sun-kissed look is down to Laura Mercier Bronzing Pressed Powder in Matte Bronze, and Kate's gorgeous lips are made up from an entire coat of Lip Pencil in Baby Lips followed by Lip Glace in Sparkling. To get eyes that smoulder like Kate's, prep eyelids and the brow bone with Eye Basics in Peach, then blend Baked Eye Colour in Black Karat and in Terracotta for the base, and finish off with two coats of Full Blown Volume Lash Building Mascara. Shop everything you need above, and let me know what you think of Kate's totally radiant makeup look!
Yesterday in London, Kate Beckinsale changed outfits three times (just like in Ireland) during her promo for Total Recall. The British actress wore a neon lace Preen dress then a monochrome ensemble with Christian Louboutin peep toes and Melinda Maria earrings for daytime interviews. For the premiere, Kate slipped into a Donna Karan Fall 2012 gown with Ferragamo satin pumps and Rona Pfeiffer earrings. These are Kate's latest fab looks, following photo calls, press conferences and red carpets in Dublin, Berlin, LA and San Diego.

The cast of Total Recall continued their string of press with a stop in Ireland yesterday. Jessica Biel wore a strapless Zac Posen dress while Kate Beckinsale went with a dramatic pink gown. Kate posed on the arm of her husband, and the movie's director, Len Wiseman, while Colin Farrell had his mom, Rita, by his side. Before Kate and Colin hit the red carpet, they stopped by a Dublin studio to chat up the project. Kate, Colin, and Jessica have been in front of the cameras for their film since July, though the overseas leg of promotions kicked off in Berlin just yesterday.
Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale dressed up for this evening's premiere of Total Recall in Berlin. They each donned floor-length gowns for the German debut, with Kate in a light design from Naeem Khan and Jessica working a back-baring Elie Saab. It seems the cast didn't stick around afterward — Jessica tweeted a picture of a jet this evening with the caption, "Auf wiedersehen, Berlin!" Kate, Jessica, and their leading man Colin Farrell kicked things off this morning. Jessica Biel wore Christian Cota to a photocall for the picture, which hit theaters in the US earlier this month.
Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, and Kate Beckinsale were in Berlin this morning for a photocall supporting their movie, Total Recall. Jessica looked well-rested after a weekend getaway in Puerto Rico, where she spent time with her fiancé, Justin Timberlake. JT's on the island working on a movie project of his own, Runner, Runner. This morning, Jessica showed a bit of tummy in her printed Christian Cota cutout dress. Kate, though, went more modest in a purple frock. Kate's able to embark on the press tour with her leading man by her side — Total Recall was directed by Kate's husband, Len Wiseman. The remake of the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger movie came out in the US on Aug. 3. It wasn't a hit with critics, but came in sixth at the weekend box office nonetheless.
This week in Los Angeles, Kate Beckinsale shone at the Total Recall premiere in a Giorgio Armani Privé dress, which she teamed with a tousled updo. Celebrity hairstylist Mara Roszak took inspiration from Kate's structured dress to created a texturized look that was "edgy and undone, with an effortless feel."

Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel joined their Total Recall leading man Colin Farrell on the red carpet at LA's Grauman's Chinese Theatre for their premiere last night. Jessica went ladylike in pink Christian Dior Couture, and Kate upped the drama in a reptilian Armani Privé creation. Kate walked the red carpet with her husband, the movie's director, Len Wiseman. Jessica's other half, Justin Timberlake, wasn't able to make it. She told us yesterday that he's off working on his own movie, so he wasn't able to weigh in on her sartorial decisions like he usually does. Colin also had a lady on his arm, his sister Claudine Farrell. Colin mentioned to us that he was excited to see the action film for the first time, as a finished product, at Grauman's. He celebrated Len's creation with Jessica and Kate at the afterparty. Stay tuned for our video from the event later today on PopSugar Rush!
Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale flanked Colin Farrell at their Total Recall photocall held at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills on Saturday. The trio, along with costar Bryan Cranston, have been participating in the press junket at the hotel for the past couple of days ahead of their big LA premiere next week. Jessica took advantage of a short break in her promotional duties to visit fiancé Justin Timberlake in Puerto Rico. Jessica donned a bikini to play paddleball with a shirtless JT on the beach. Jessica said the island getaway was the "best time" of her life, but perhaps it will be dethroned by her upcoming wedding! Jessica and Justin are rumored to be tying the knot this Summer, though they've yet to reveal a date. Kate also had her own good times with her leading man when they celebrated her 39th birthday together on Thursday.
Kate Becksinale makes a glamorous turn on the August cover of Allure, which hits newsstands July 24. The Total Recall actress, who recently spoke about the action film at Comic-Con, shows off the Fall 2012 fashion collections from Prada, Michael Kors, and more in the issue. She also talks about feeling comfortable in her own skin, aging gracefully, and what she's most afraid of when it comes to having a teenage daughter. Here's more from Kate in Allure:
- On being beautiful: "Feeling attractive didn’t come until I was 29 and with Len. . . . At the time it was partly perceived as if I'd gone all Hollywood, but it wasn’t like that at all. It was just OK for me to walk around and feel feminine and attractive. I like feeling liberated like this."
- On aging: "What is it about a woman being in her late 30s that brings out the 'Oh, my gosh, are you worried?' questions? Worried? What about? Thirty-eight, 39, 40, 50! Great! Still alive! It's more of the thing of being embarrassing to somebody. I haven’t been embarrassing before. I can't dance at a party where there are teenagers without clearing the dance floor. Those are the things that make me go, 'F*ck, I'm old. . . .' When you're a parent, everyone leaves."
- On her teenage daughter, Lily: "There are things I don't want my daughter to ever know. I don't want her to know about being betrayed. I remember Len talking to Bruce Willis when Len did Live Free or Die Hard, and I think Bruce did some terrifying things when his daughter started having a boyfriend. Len and I asked him, 'When Lily starts having boyfriends, will you come over too? We'll all stand on the doorstep, scare the sh*t out of them.' But maybe now I don't need Bruce. Now that I'm a villain, I can go solo."
