Despite the fact that she’s widely loved as an actress–and lauded as a crusader for more positive body image–there’s been a hefty internet-wide backlash to Kate Winslet‘s recently-dropped Vogue cover. Of course, the problem has nothing to do with Winslet herself… and everything to do with Vogue‘s over-eager retouchers.
But the painting of Winslet on the November cover isn’t exactly new territory for Vogue–they recently hacked off Claire Danes‘ limbs, for one. Moreover, there are quite a few covers from the last ten years that rival Winslet’s for showcasing humans who don’t exactly resemble humans. Let’s take a look. More
Well, that was surprising. More
That right there is Kate Winslet, Oscar-winning actress, positive body image lobbyist, wife of a man with an unconventional surname and mother of two (soon to be three). We included the above photo so you can see what a pretty lady Winslet is, with all her wavy blonde hair and glowing skin. Oh, it’s also to remind you what she looks like today. Literally today. More
The Oscar winner, 37, and her husband, the actually-named Ned Rocknroll, are expecting their first child together. More
Unfortunately, this cruise ship will not involve Jack & Rose being resurrected (side note: would Young Rose or Old Rose come back? if it’s the latter, we’re in for some May/December zombie romance). But it will probably involve a $1M price tag! And hella icebergs because of course it will. More
Kate Winslet got married! In secret! To a man whose legal name is Ned Rocknroll (stylized, apparently, to be Rock’nRoll sometimes?). More
I propose we start changing our award titles into such dramatic and powerful sounding ones as well. If we changed Oscar’s name to Han Solo, I’m quite sure people would want them even more. More
Kate Winslet has nabbed the cover of the latest Vanity Fair Italia. This arresting shot is a bit of a change for her; “vampier” (for lack of a better term) than usual but we’re into it. More
You already know the answer is going to be “no.” More
The much-discussed Stella McCartney “thin dress” that Kate Winslet wore two different versions of last year is back. Both Phillip Lim and Victoria Beckham took the idea and ran with it in their winter/fall 2012 shows this fashion week. That means it is officially A Thing. More
Volatile man James Cameron is rereleasing his massive 1997 blockbuster Titanic… in 3D. If this move smacks a little too much of Star Wars: Special Edition foulness to you then: good! We’re glad to have you. Here, editors Jennifer Wright and Ashley Cardiff discuss Cameron’s reasoning, its presence in pop culture and whether or not the film is still relevant in 2012. Also, how that old lady was a bitch. More
It’s the one we’ve circled in red.
The 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards have occurred! We’ll run best and worst lists soon (spoiler: nobody looked really, incredibly awful? is that possible?) but for now, here’s a pretty complete gallery. …By complete, I mean, you will see all the dresses but will not have to endure 40 slides of the same exact tuxedo on every male attendee. Thank me later! Anyhow, Katie Holmes, Gwyneth Paltrow, Glee stars, Mad Men women, Kate Winslet and, of course, Paz de la Huerta ahead… More
Please, won’t somebody think of the Hollywood actresses? More
