Kate Beckinsale took her sky-high shoe style for a glamorous night out – complete with a matching dress – to celebrate Lance Bass’ birthday.
The actress struck a power pose at home in a shimmering gold mini dress by Atelier Zuhra. The sleek, long-sleeved number featured a high neck silhouette, with sheer nude paneling and mirrored metallic embellishments to create the effect of being dipped in gold. Rounding out Beckinsale’s Gorge Villalpando-style outfit are Fry Powers gold hoop earrings, a crystal-covered clutch, and scattered eye crystals.
She also finished her look with an elegant orange and gold manicure by Mila Kobayashi – which she coordinated with her cat, Clive, whose claws were painted in hot pink.
“Twinkle twinkle little cat,” Beckinsale captioned a photo of her look on Instagram.
As for footwear, the “Serendipity” star looked just as daring in a set of chunky platform sandals by Schutz. Featuring chunky soles, thin toes and buckled ankle straps, the $148 Cadey-Lee style got an extra disco effect with its metallic finish and orange hue. Completing the ensemble were daring stilettos, totaling 5.7 inches in height. The shiny heels gave Beckinsale a huge boost in height, while emphasizing the flair of her ensemble with a dramatic finish.
Platform heels like those from Beckinsale are a major trend in today’s high heel renaissance, due to their supportive elements and height-increasing heels. Pairs with stiletto or block heels proved particularly popular, such as new models from Larroude, Loeffler Randall and Jessica Rich. Aside from Beckinsale, stars like Lily James, Sofia Vergara and Kelly Clarkson have also tied themselves to sleek platforms Jimmy Choo, Alevi Milano and Versace in recent weeks.
Beckinsale is no stranger to the party look, recently wearing a pale pink Christian Cowan dress with a feather-covered hem. Worn to Gigi Gorgeous’ 30th birthday party, the ensemble was so daring that Cowan himself even dubbed it “Gag hot queen.”
For shoes, the “Underworld” actress usually prefers her black ankle and knee boots from brands like Christian Louboutin and Prada. However, she also wears Naked Wolfe platform sneakers and Saint Laurent sandals when off duty. For formal occasions, Beckinsale dons pointed pumps and sandals by Zanotti, Jimmy Choo and Stuart Weitzman. She is also a force in the fashion world, regularly appearing on the front rows for brands like Moschino, Dior and Giambattista Valli, among others.
