Kate Beckinsale has had an absolutely flawless fashion run during promotion for Total Recall. She stepped out in a number of beautiful gowns with beautiful embellishment for premieres, and attended photocalls in an amazing range of chic separates and killer heels.

Last night in London she showed us all how to wear black without looking boring in a gorgeous black sequin and bow detail gown by one of her go-to designers, Donna Karan. The dress is from the Autumn / Winter 2012 collection.

Getting the look is actually easier than you think, but it comes from an usual source. The new Lipsy VIP range, modelled by Made in Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh (she of the permanent pout and unforgettable slow clap) has a £140 black sequinned dress that is a dead-ringer for the Donna Karan creation, minus the bow.

Invest another few quid in some heavy black fabric and get creative with your sewing machine, and you could create a great version of Kate's dress for under £150.
