I'm not sure why Kate Beckinsale is on the cover of Allure magazine, and in the pages of Esquire magazine in the same month, or why both photoshoots seem to match so well, but if you ask me, the only reason you need is that she's Kate Beckinsale. Maybe they got a 2-for-1 deal from the photographer, or maybe covering a naked Kate Beckinsale with only a sheet or a shirt is just about the sexiest thing you can do, besides not covering her all.
I think Kate actually has about three movies coming out this year, but that's probably not why. Frankly, I think every magazine should have a section devoted to Kate Beckinsale every month, just because. And yes, that includes Architecture Digest and Popular Machanics. Oh, and Playboy too.
