Kate Beckinsale is white hot as she joins Cindy Crawford at star-studded Memorial Day BBQ
A day at the beach is anything but casual for Kate Beckinsale.
While most people would probably just throw on a tank, some shorts and a pair of flip flops for a seaside sojourn, the 40-year-old really turned up the heat in Malibu, California, on Monday.
Like thousands of people across America, the actress marked the Memorial Day public holiday by attending a BBQ.
However, this was not just your average cookout but rather one held at the multimillion beachfront property of Hollywood producer Joel Silver.
For the party, the Total Recall star went for a striking all-white look of a romper with short shorts - which showed off her toned and tanned legs - which featured a white sheer chiffon layer over the top.
Breaking away from her colour scheme slightly the actress made the look pop by adding a pair of silver pointed top pumps and a snakeskin handbag.
Looking much younger than her 40 years, the brunette wore her locks in loose curls which framed her face.
Keeping her makeup in muted tones, allowed Kate's natural tan stand out even further.
Kate attended the party with husband Len Wiseman but her daughter, 15-year-old Lily Sheen, stayed home.
One of the most well attended parties of the year, the annual bash this time around also drew in model Cindy Crawford.
The 48-year-old and her husband Randy Gerber soaked up the view from the Hollywood heavyweight's balcony.
The supermodel looked effortlessly chic in a black and white printed silk dress with her hair out and blowing ion the ocean breeze.
And Joel - who produced Lethal Weapon and Die hard - was not the only long-time Hollywood power player in attendance, also joining in the party fun was Barbara Streisand.
The 72-year-old was in great spirits as she left the bash along with her husband James Brolin.
Also attending the event was Diane Kruger and long-term boyfriend Joshua Jackson.
Diane also picked a monochromatic ensemble, wearing a tan waffle patterned fabric dress with leather gladiator sandals and tan vintage-inspired frames.
Keeping her look unfussy, the 37-year-old wore her hair wet and tied back into a low bun.
Newlyweds Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting also headed to the BBQ hand-in-hand.
For the day by the beach, Kaley prepared for the cool ocean breezes wearing a long layered pink with floral print dress under a leather jacket with wooden platform mules.
The Big Bang Theory star found herself the target of criticism on the internet on Monday after posing a picture of her and her husband at the event on Instagram.
The 28-year-old captioned the image: 'Celebrating Memorial Day in style :)'
Despite posting a tribute photograph to the troops just prior the party image, some of her Instagram followers thought the term 'celebrating' was in poor taste when the day is to honour fallen soldiers.
The star-studded event was not just for couples either, with Gwen Stefani bringing along her new bundle of joy, Apollo, as well as husband Gavin Rossdale and sons Kingston and Zuma.
The day is a special one for the family as it is also Kingston's birthday with the little boy turning eight.
The always stylish Gwen dressed in a simple but striking black and white look featuring jeans and a striped top.
Giving the look a pop of colour the platinum blonde star added a pair of fluorescent pink sunglasses, yellow loafers and her signature red lipstick.
The No Doubt singer's little boys had a blast at the event, tearing up and down its waterslide.
At one point little Zuma got some serious air as he slid down, but was unfazed and immediately headed back up to go again.
Another famous family to get amongst the beachside fun was Tobey Maguire's.
His wife Jennifer Meyer took son Otis to play on the beach while the actor looked after daughter Ruby.
Not everyone had their families or significant others join them.
Rita Wilson came solo without husband Tom Hanks but that did not seem to bother her too much as she smiled away as she grabbed her car at the end of the party.
Every year Joel's party draws the who's who of Hollywood with previous attendees including Sean Penn, Tom Cruise and Selena Gomez.
