Kate Beckinsale is the latest celebrity to master the art of leaving a hotel looking impeccably groomed.

The actress was spotted showing off a super chic but all too familiar look in New York yesterday, and frankly, only one other A-lister came to mind.

Victoria Beckham is the current queen of the shades, high heels and statement coat/dress (depending on the season) ensemble but it looks like her best friend Kate is jumping on her bandwagon.

Beckinsale followed the simple but sophisticated rule in a fitted, cream coat and satin platforms and as for the sunglasses... she got it just right in oversized, square frames.

Her look was complete with perfectly tousled locks and a touch of nude lipgloss, a la bestie Beckham. The only thing that was missing? A tote from VB's collection, of course.
