Kate Beckinsale has integrated bright colors into her red carpet choices recently, and it’s all thanks to stylist Taylor Jacobson pushing the star beyond her neutrals comfort zone. “She’s open to broadening her fashion horizons,” the celebrity stylist (and Rachel Zoe Project alum) told InStyle.com of dressing the Underworld: Awakening star this week. “She tends to do black white nude and edgy, but for last few events, she’s done soft, pretty, and more romantic and color. She’s so beautiful that anything that she wears looks amazing.” And you could learn something from Beckinsale’s slow transition into rainbow territory. “Embrace color because it’s going to be around forever,” advised Jacobson, shown inset. “Start with soft colors like rose, light blue, light green, or pale yellow. If you don’t want to do a full jumpsuit or dress, try accessories like a great scarf or chunky, bright bracelets. I love to accessorize with color—my favorite is wearing neon pumps with an all-black outfit.” Great advice!
