Want proof? Check out these 18 amazing outfits Kate Winslet has worn over the past decade. She may favor simple silhouettes, minimal embellishment and LBDs, but the British actress’s wardrobe is far from boring. And frankly, we hope she “never lets go” of her signature look.

18 gorg red carpet looks from Kate Winslet

Badgley Mischka

Channeling the deep blue sea, perhaps? Kate wore this jeweled-bodice Badgley Mischka to the 2005 Academy Awards.

Ben de Lisi

By wearing this beautiful scarlet one-shoulder gown to the 2004 Oscars, Kate single-handedly put designer Ben de Lisi on the Hollywood map.


Kate later selected a minty-fresh Valentino dress for the 2007 Oscars—one of the more unexpected colors she’s ever worn.

When in doubt, Kate knows you can’t go wrong with a classic LBD. The one she’s wearing here is from Dolce & Gabbana.

Narciso Rodriguez

The British actress always looks fantastic in jewel tones, and this perfectly-fitted Narciso Rodriguez she wore to the 2009 SAG Awards was no exception.

black Yves Saint Laurent

Jenny Packham

Stella McCartney illusion dress

After Kate slipped into this incredibly slimming Stella McCartney illusion dress, the piece swiftly sold out across the country. It’s not hard to see why.

black Jenny Packham gown

Kate chose this black Jenny Packham gown with crystal-beaded cap sleeves for the premiere of Titanic 3D—and looked just as beautiful as she always does.

In 2021, Winslet looks classy as ever this stunning and simple black gown with a plunging neckline. I couldn’t find the details on the designer, but the bling on her wrist is by Fred Leighton.
