The Underworld star is known for rocking latex even since her student days.
Kate’s Body Of Work
Kate Beckinsale’s body of work runs the gamut from romantic comedies and thrillers to action movies and beyond, but it is the Underworld franchise that has given her career the crossover appeal that she still continues to enjoy years later. In the series, Beckinsale’s character Selena was a vampiric goddess that not only had formidable powers as a centuries-old leader, but for the fans, she was a showstopper in the fashionable sense, and the production team went out of its way to dress up Kate in jaw-dropping outfits that are still considered some of the most iconic of her career.

In Jolt, Beckinsale gets to go against the grain as a blonde who has more than a few issues with managing her anger and has to wear a vest lined with electrodes to calm her down before things get – to put it lightly – out of control. Her ardent fans will appreciate that Kate gets to show her acting chops and bring her penchant for action to the table as well. Plus, she co-stars with some of Hollywood’s top-tier talent. But if the question still looms if Kate is ever giving up latex?
