Kate Beckinsale, Colin Farrell and Jessica Biel teamed up for the London premiere of Total Recall last night. The ladies changed into their white-carpet finest after a busy day of hopping around the city doing press. Kate and Jess were a study in contrasts — Kate went for a long, black Donna Karan and Jess picked short, white Giambattista Valli. Kate's husband, Len Wiseman, was also on hand for the event. Jessica and Kate have become quite a premiere duo. They have their posing act down, having also taken the film to screenings in Dublin, Berlin and LA. The picture debuted in the US earlier this month, but failed to make a big splash at the box office. The stars are hoping for more success overseas — Total Recall is released in Australia on Aug. 23.
As the Total Recall promo tour makes its way through Europe, the film's starlets, Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale, have stepped up their red-carpet styling tenfold. The duo attended the Dublin premiere last night in two equally striking evening ensembles. Jessica showed off her penchant for dramatic texture via a cream-and-gold Zac Posen bustier dress, pairing the look with an embellished Fendi clutch and crystal-encrusted Manolo Blahnik pumps, while Kate opted for a hot-pink Donna Karan floor-length number from the designer's Resort 2013 line. The actresses may have put the emphasis on structural silhouettes last night, but that's just the tip of the iceberg in terms of dress choices. So far, we've seen everything from colour-blocked H&M and Diane von Furstenberg to lacy Dolce & Gabbana and sequined Elie Saab.

Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale dressed up for last night's premiere of Total Recall (out Aug. 23) 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 right after the event with the caption, "Auf wiedersehen, Berlin!" Kate, Jessica and their leading man Colin Farrell kicked things off in the morning with a photo call.
Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel were looking divine in Berlin for the Total Recall premiere overnight. The pair have been stunning the world with a variety of beauty looks while promoting the action film, but last night's looks were by far our favourite. Kate looked pretty and romantic with a side chignon and swept fringe, while Jessica looked clean and polished with a sleek bun. She wore her fringe straight and blunt, which finished off her well-manicured look. Both ladies kept their makeup minimal with two sets of nude lips, Kate went for gloss while Jessica kept it matte. What do you think — romantic or sleek and straight?
Is it just us or is the Total Recall promo tour having a serious style moment, courtesy of its brunette starlets Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale? We're pretty sure it's not just us. The duo just stepped out in Berlin for the film's premiere in two equally gorgeous evening ensembles. Jessica showed off her sexy back — phrasing intentional — in a black sequined Elie Saab gown, pairing the look with an oversized Fendi clutch and blunt bangs, while Kate opted for a creamy rose-swirl printed Naeem Khan floor-length number from the designer's A/W 2012 line. The actresses may be puttin' on the ritz, but that doesn't take away from the plethora of ladylike Oscar de la Renta sheaths and lacy Elie Saab creations they've worn throughout the Total Recall photocall-and-premiere circuit.

Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale were in Berlin yesterday for a morning photo call 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. At the photo call, Jessica showed a bit of tummy in her printed cut-out 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 comes out in Australia on Aug. 23.
Jessica Biel not only made the Total Recall rounds in NYC over the weekend, she did so with a dichotomous styling approach. First, the brunette beauty stopped by The Daily Show With Jon Stewart in an animal-print Giambattista Valli cocktail dress (we're obsessed with the sweet tulip skirt silhouette) with a Fendi 2jours shopper and black Casadei pumps. By letting the longer skirt hem and quarter-length sleeves off-set the exotic pattern and accentuating inseams, her look offered up a more sophisticated take on sexier ensembles. Then, Jessica switched gears, wearing an ethereal sleeveless white lace creation from Elie Saab's Spring 2012 Couture collection to the film's screening. In a nod to modest-meets-romantic dressing, she also added a delicate lace shawl to match. Her gold Elie Saab clutch and textured Jimmy Choo pumps injected a glamorous feel, but in no way interrupted the ultra-feminine vibe. One evening, two distinct dresses, and three key styling strategies to get you there, the Jessica Biel way — read below for quick tips on transforming your evening vibe from sexy to sweet, and vice versa.
- It's all in the texture. Notice how Jessica really nails each vibe via dress texture. In her first appearance, she opted for a sultry animal print — instantly giving off a more vixenish appeal. In her second appearance, she's every bit the sweet style setter in white lace. Sure, lace can be sexy, too, but not when it's worn modestly and in the most ethereal shade of crisp, clean white. The bottom line: you can set the tone of each look just by utilising texture correctly. It's not always about going the obsious styling route.
- Go for classic accents. When switching modes, you want to be able to work with what you've got. Not all of us have a pair of stilettos and clutch in every shade in our closets, but the main thing is to keep a good rotation of classics in your going-out arsenal. A nude pump will always work well with a more feminine silhouette. A black pump will work well with basically everything, but for our purposes, it will certainly put a slick spin on sultrier dresses.
- The ultimate twofer. You want to make it even simpler? Invest in a tailored LWD. For girlier nights out, pair the look with a neutral-toned heel and a scallop-edged clutch. Then, give it a sexy upgrade with your black pumps, a little black eyeliner, and a bold red lip. You can have it both ways.
Last time we saw Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel, they were working coordinating looks in taupe tones for the Total Recall photocall. However, these leading ladies took distinctly different approaches to their red carpet looks for yesterday's red carpet premiere in LA. Jessica opted for a sugary-sweet frock from Christian Dior Couture's A/W '12 collection, designed by Raf Simons. Louis Vuitton cap-toed pumps and statement jewels from Tom Binns amped up her look. Kate on the other hand was dark and dangerous in a reptilian Armani Privé gown, black Brian Atwood pumps and Lorraine Schwartz jewellery. The cutest thing is seeing these two gal-pals comparing outfits on the red rug, ain't that sweet? Step inside to see each get-up properly, then tell us which one floats your boat.
While everyone else may have been talking about the movie, we were busy spying on the hair and beauty looks on show at the Hollywood premiere of Total Recall yesterday. Jessica Biel has been rocking some very feminine looks of late, and we loved her take on nail art with cute silver half-moon nails. Wearing a pastel pink polish with what looks like nail wraps on top, Jessica's cool nail look is easier to get at home than you think. You can't go past OPI Mod About You ($16.96) for that perfect pastel pink, and then all you need to do is use a scalpel tool (or small manicure scissors) to cut little half-moon shapes out of Nail Rock Metallic Designer Nail Wraps in Silver ($10.93) and stick on the top half of your nails. Apply your favourite glossy topcoat and voilà — Jessica Biel's red carpet mani!
Jessica Biel, in Christian Dior Couture, and Kate Beckinsale, in reptilian Armani Privé, wowed media and fans at the LA premiere of Total Recall today. The black carpet event was held at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, and the action film’s leading ladies looked gorgeous in dramatic gowns. Kate’s husband, Len Wiseman, directed the feature, and joined his wife for some photos. Meanwhile, Colin Farrell brought along a pretty date — his sister Claudine — before posing with his co-stars.
