Sink or Swim: Kate Winslet At The ‘Mildred Pierce’ Premiere

Kate Winslet wore a polka-dot Stella McCartney sheath to the Mildred Pierce premiere last night and we think this look needs to go to the polls.

On the one hand, Winslet is a beautiful woman with a great figure and can get away with a lot. I also think her hair and make-up is spot on: pale lips, flawless skin, great brows and a little black liner goes a long way when you have a face as pretty as hers. I like her minimal black heels, which don’t compete with the dress. Her hair looks lovely.

On the other hand, I think the cutaway is odd (especially when you see it from the side) while an informal office poll produced questions like, “Why is she covered in weird black growths?” and “Is she a sexy Dalmation?”

So:

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

    Ummm… I don’t know. There are a lot of ways that you could make fun of this dress. But at the end of the day, she’s wearing something fun and different! And aren’t we always asking celebs to take chances? I say it works. I mean, she looks gorgeous, but she doesn’t look like every other Hollywood woman you see.

    I’m too distracted by her ankles to focus on the dress. Do her shoes have beige ankle straps, or is she wearing a set of bizarre ankle bracelets? Her feet are threatening to disconnect from her legs! What is happening here?!?!

    • Ashley Cardiff

      Oh, wow. I completely did not notice the nude ankle straps. Now I cannot unsee them.

  • Hannah Beth

    Before I say that this is a SWIM, I’d like to comment on the irony of the title in relation to her role in Titanic. She looks flawless.

    problem lies in the length of the dress. it would be much better if it is shorter. currently the bottom half of her body looks like that of a grandmother.

    shorter, with sky high pumps, and would have been a swim.
