Kate attended the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum Presents 2014 Los Angeles Dinner “What You Do Matters” yesterday (she looked stunning!) and I have now uploaded a couple of images of the event here.

Just how amazing did Kate look at the Golden Globes yesterday? :)
The actress stunned in a sleeveless, gunmetal metallic gown by Zuhair Murad, which she paired with Chopard jewels. Celebrity hairstylist Sascha Breuer, who created Beckinsale’s edgy hair look Sunday evening, used Moroccanoil to give the star a “punk-inspired diva look.” (Source)

Filming for Michael Winterbottom’s The Face of an Angel has now officially started and thanks to Daily Mail we have a few pictures from the set for you which show Kate on the set in Rome on Sunday.

She plays a vampire in the Underworld movies.
But Kate Beckinsale seemed to be taking style cues from another mythical creature at the LACMA Art + Film Gala in Los Angeles on Saturday.
Wearing a glittering blue mermaid-style dress, the 40-year-old actress showed off her famous figure to full effect as she joined her fellow celebrities to honour Martin Scorcese and David Hockney.
Her brunette locks in a glossy curtain over one shoulder, Kate dazzled in the strapless Gucci number, which showed off her petite build with a nipped-in waist.
The crystal-embellished gown clung to the star and revealed a glimpse of leg with an above-the-knee split at the rear of the dress.
Showcasing toned and tanned limbs, the Total Recall star added to the effect with a metallic silver Jimmy Choo Cosma clutch and shimmering nude sandals.
Opting for understated grey nail polish, the mother-of-one finished her look with two enormous diamonds rings and a pair of chandelier earrings.
Accompanying the British star was her husband, Len Wiseman, 40, who looked sharp in an understated black suit and tie with a crisp white shirt.
