What can I say about Kate Winslet?  I like her a lot and, as my best friend says, I think that we could be friends with her.  She is a supremely talented actress and was the youngest person to be nominated six times for an Academy Award, yet she comes across as a fairly normal, down to earth person.  She is very beautiful and I admire how confident she is about herself and how at ease she is in her own skin.  While clearly very fit and far from being overweight, she is not a typical size zero actress and she is quite outspoken about the pressures to be thin and the images that are presented to young women.

I think that a lot of people fell in love with her watching “Titanic” and, to some degree, we have all grown up together.  Kate has had some style mishaps over the years but I would say that over the last ten years she and her style team have learned to achieve the classically glamorous look consistently.

This picture must have been taken from around the “Titanic” period:

Academy Awards 2009 in Yves Saint Laurant.  She won the Best Actress Award.  I love the steely grey colour and the jewelry is stunning.  I wish that her hair were just a little less stiff though.  She was working a bit of a Grace Kelly vibe I think that night.

Beautiful light coloured make-up here with strong brows and black liner.

I love her earrings in this one

She looks like a California blonde in this one

She just looks soft and beautiful here.  I love the simple ponytail, hoop earrings and pretty make-up.

Currently, she is a spokesmodel for luxury brand, St. John


She also also a model for Lancome and while it’s true that these are extremely well lit, styled and, undoubtedly, airbrushed, they are some beautiful photos.
