She could be hailed a queen of fashion for her seemingly endless litany of style wins, and Kate Beckinsale showed off her regally wonderful wardrobe prowess as she stepped out among plenty of other stars at the The Academy Of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences New Members Reception at the American Ambassador's Residence in London on Wednesday.
The British actress, 42, was a truly sensational addition to proceedings at the soiree, hosted by Ambassador Barzun and his wife Brooke.
Kate showed off her svelte figure in an understated yet effective black dress, showing off her toned arms and her trim waistline through smart little cut-out details on the side.
The snug pencil skirt of the black dress was decorated with a detailed shiny pattern, glowing in a shimmering pewter shade, and elevating the look from a simple LBD.
Her slender physique had never looked so good, the form-fitting design showing off every inch of every curve she's the proud owner of.
