The British sure do know how to rock and roll, so with last night's Met Gala theme being punk, the American ladies took a cue from their friends across the pond, just how to look punk-sational and elegant all at the same time. It's fashion's biggest night out, so click here to see just how these lovelies from the UK paired their hair and makeup with their funky attire.
The Brits sure know how to rock it out punk style on the red carpet, which is perhaps why so many of them were in attendance at last night's 2013 Metropolitan Museum of Art Gala in New York City. Clad in every designer under the sun (more on who wore what British designers later), they were dressed to impress from head to toe with stunning accessories, gowns and shoes full of chains, studs and of course — fishnet. Take a look at these British beauties in my gallery here and leave a comment at the end letting me know who you think looked best.
Kate Beckinsale was decked out in a pink Alberta Ferretti dress that showed off her sky-high heels at the Met Gala in NYC this evening. The gown had a high hem in the front, while it was long in the back, which meant it also put her perfectly toned stems on display. Kate was without her usual date, husband Len Wiseman, but she had plenty of fellow fashionable stars to rub elbows with all night long.

Kate Beckinsale looked bright-eyed and party-ready at the 2013 Vanity Fair Oscar Party last night. Dressed in a black and gold strapless tulle Monique Lhuillier dress that she paired with strappy Jimmy Choo sandals, a Roger Vivier clutch and Chopard jewellery, the 39-year-old British actress walked hand in hand with her handsome husband. Her makeup was spot on as usual with a nude lip and smoky eyes and her hair was styled in a playful, voluminous ponytail. What do you think of her ensemble?
Last night in Los Angeles, awards season has officially kicked off with the 2013 Golden Globe Awards. Stars lined the red carpet in embellished, bright coloured and form fitting gowns. Their hair, makeup and accessories were styled to perfection, just as we had hoped. Whilst mostly Americans were in attendance, there were more British ladies and gents than I ever expected to see. From Sienna Miller to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Emily Blunt, Emily Mortimer and more, check out this bevvy of beautiful Brits and leave a comment to let me know who you think looked best from head to toe!
Selena Gomez and Kate Beckinsale attended Vogue's special dinner celebrating Alberta Ferretti's limited-edition 2013 collection in LA last night. Selena, wearing a blue Alberta Ferretti dress, posed alongside Chelsea Handler while Kate chatted up Olivia Munn. Meanwhile, Alison Brie, Brittany Snow, and Anna Kendrick — all in Alberta Ferretti — shared a few laughs as they sat front row at the special presentation.
The night wasn't just for actresses. Rachel Zoe and her husband, Rodger Berman, also dropped by the event to take some of the edge off of a hectic award season. Rachel attended the dinner while her client Anne Hathaway picked up the best supporting actress award at the Critics' Choice Awards while wearing Oscar de la Renta. Be sure to tune in to the Golden Globes on Sunday to see what Rachel will dress Anne in, and don't forget to vote in our predictions ballot for a chance to win $1,500 and an iPad mini!
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.
