Make like Kate in her black and gold Dior dress

Stepping out to the Guggenheim International Gala, Kate Beckinsale looked incredible in a chic black and gold dress by Dior.

We adore the statement embellished gold shoulders that give the gown a subtle 80s vibe and take it from simple to striking.

Kate wore her hair in loose curls and finished off her look with triple strap heels that you could catch a glimpse of thanks to the front split in her dress.

With party season just round the corner, Kate's outfit has come at just the right time. We love the black and gold color scheme that offers up a chic way to look the festive part.

Although Kate's dress isn't available to buy, that doesn't mean we can't feel inspired to copy her look with one of the alternatives in the carousel below. From Stella McCartney to Tadashi and NastyGal, we've got all budgets covered!
