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.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Kate Winslet In Jenny Packham

Kate Winslet was our winner for best dress this week – no surprises.

The British actress was breath-taking on the red carpet for the Titanic 3D World premiere.

Some weren’t that impressed with Kate’s Jenny Packham gown, which was surprising.

Whilst I did like love the gown, I will agree that the dress was only doing 10% of the work.

Kate’s regal presence made up the 90%.

Kate Winslet In Jenny Packham – Titanic 3D World Premiere

I think my heart just stopped.

Kate Winslet looked sensational as she took to the red carpet on a warm sunny evening in London for the ‘Titanic 3D’ world premiere at the Royal Albert Hall.

Looking as regal as ever, the actress glided down the red carpet wearing a Jenny Packham gown.

Her bespoke Jenny Packham black silk-crepe gown with Swarovski crystal cap sleeves and a waist detail was inspired by the British designer’s Fall 2012 Film Noir collection.

Yes, it’s another black gown from Kate, but she pulls out all the stops to make this an epic look which we will no doubt be adding to our BDOTY lists.

A chic wavy updo, silver jewels and a dark pink lip colour completed her look.

When she’s good, she’s damn good.

*goosebumps*

Kate Winslet In Jenny Packham – Cesar Film Awards 2012

OK, let’s just marvel at how amazing Kate Winslet looked tonight at the 37th Cesar Film Awards, held at Theatre du Chatelet in Paris, France.

The British actress stunned wearing a Jenny Packham gown.

She can be frustrating inconsistent at times, but this black-and-gold sequined gown with a deep plunging neckline makes me forget about those simple black dresses she tends to favour.

A sparkling gown deserves some sparkling jewels, so she opted for Cartier jewels which included Trinity de Cartier yellow gold hoop earrings and a Santos de Cartier yellow gold and diamond bracelet.

A gold Anya Hindmarch clutch and a wavy updo completed her look.

I love her when she’s on form.

Most definitely a BDOTW contender.

Kate Winslet In Jenny Packham – 2012 Golden Globe Awards

Kate Winslet went back to basic in black-and-white for the 2012 Golden Globe Awards this evening.

The winner of Best Actress in a made-for-TV movie or mini-series her role in HBO’s ‘Mildred Pierce’, wore a two-toned Jenny Packham dress.

Her dress with a black silk keyhole bodice and an ivory silk crepe skirt and a ribbon embellished with Swarovski crystals has a déjà vu feel to it.

This dress lacks the typical ‘princess’ feel of a Jenny Packham dress, but such a look would not suit Kate, but this figure-skimming gown is much more appropriate for the always elegant actress.

Roger Vivier Open Toe Epine heels, Fred Leighton jewels, a side-swept updo and glossy nude lips completed her look.

Who Wore Stella McCartney Better? Liv Tyler or Kate Winslet

Liv Tyler looked stunning whilst attending the New York screening for ‘The Ledge’ back in June.

She dressed her womanly curves in a two-tone Stella McCartney Octavia dress.

The actress, who’s no stranger to wearing dresses by her designer BFF, accessorized with Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ pumps and a black Stella McCartney clutch.

Beauty-wise, hot red lips and tumbling side-swept curls completed her look.

Kate Winslet wore the same dress on Sunday to the ‘Carnage’ Paris premiere.

This was her second time donning this sporty dress, but in a different colour.

Her hair was styled into a simple updo and she wore black ankle-strap heels to complete her look.

As someone who’s favourite colour is electric blue, I have to go with Liv.

I also prefer her hair and choice of shoes. Kate’s heels, despite being open-toe, feel heavier in comparison.
