Kate Winslet In Alexander McQueen – Investiture Ceremony

Kate Winslet was at Buckingham Palace in London today for the Investiture ceremony to collect her long overdue CBE, for services to drama, from the Queen wearing McQueen.

The British actress opted for an event-appropriate Alexander McQueen chic black skirt suit with an on-trend peplum detail, which showcased her gorgeous figure.

A feathered Natalie Ellner for Elsewhere fascinator, simple black pumps, flawless makeup and red nails completed the look.

From the long shot I wasn’t too fond of the fascinator. From the close up, the beautiful details and colours won me over.

On a miserable cold and rainy day in London, this look has certainly cheered me up.

You can buy Kate’s Alexander McQueen peplum blazer from farfetch.com US and farfetch.com.

    The fascinator is a little too costume but the rest of the look is flawless.

    Timeless and gorgeous. (And yes, this is indeed “long overdue”!)

    this is perfection. I love a smoking and the peplum is very flattering on K. Winslet. This may be my BDOTW.
    Im also happy for her CBE :)

    I love it from the waist up, but the skirt should be slightly longer and the heels higher.

      I have read that when meeting the Queen, your heels shouldnt be any more than 3 inches in height, so if thats true, Kate is just following the rules.

    The fascinator kept the look regal without being to matronly but still sober. I love this look on her. Thumbs up.

    She looks PERFECT!

    Queen Kate always looks so regal

    Oooh I love that fascinator. Kate looks stunning.

  11. Ramsay November 21, 2012 at 18:38 #

    Lovely and I have to say event appropriate: the peplum skirt suit by a British designer, the feathery facinator, the conservative pumps – all good – my only question is: is red fingernail the right color to meet the queen?

    • Fanny November 21, 2012 at 20:12 #

      She’s a movie star, I think red nail polish is ok. She looks outstanding, the jacket is amazing.

    Oooooh! Aaaaaah! Winslet should get another award for knowing how to dress for the occasion. I love the fascinator, the hair, the makeup, the nails. I love every little thing. Dita Von Teese is probably raising an eyebrow at how well Kate stole her look.

    I’ve just had thought…do you think the fascinator is to try and distract from her suspiciously high eyebrow on that side? It looks a bit like Kylie’s was recently! Love the look though.

  14. katie November 21, 2012 at 21:47 #

    So event appropriate, love it! love Kate!

    I love the fascinator. It brightened up the look but was still appropriate for the occasion. She looked regal and stylish. I do wish she could slim down just a bit. The outfit looked more tight than fitted.

    • Mari November 22, 2012 at 04:14 #

      Or better yet, get a size that fits better? Her weight is ok, just do not try to go all Kardashian and wear an appropriate size.
      Laugh at the suspicious eyebrow, I do not know if she is proud, smug or just botoxy! Either way she looks nice.

  16. Molly November 22, 2012 at 03:50 #

    I adore the suit but this particular fascinator is a bit too strange for me. Perhaps with a different hairstyle or if it sat differently on her head I would like it, but worn like this, it looks like something curled up on her head and died.

    first thing i thought of when i saw the fascinator was the line from sex and the city “i had a bird on my head”. she looks great even with the feathers.

  18. Taksi November 22, 2012 at 17:12 #

    Can I ask, what’s going on with her eyebrow?

  19. Marisa November 26, 2012 at 21:13 #

    To all the people commenting on her eyebrow, her right eyebrow has always been naturally arched higher than the left! It’s evident even in her first movie Heavenly Creatures.
