Kate’s Style Disaster at New YorkMarch 5th, 2009 - 1:20 am ICT by GD
Hair pulled tightly back and face completely without make-up, Kate Winslet shocked onlookers in New York with her all natural look. While she sizzled the Oscars last month Kate in New York looked like she needed a stylist badly to help her get over chilly days in style.
The Reading-born star appeared perfectly glamorous in her gunmetal grey one-shoulder gown at the Oscars last month. But being the glamour puss had not come easily to Kate who had changed her stylist three times in the weeks leading up to the Oscars. She had been as desperate to wow as she had for the Oscar. The six-time Oscar nominee dismissed her first two stylists and got herself a third stylist because she wanted the most perfect gown. She did not fire her hair and make up guys because as she said, her “hair department” had no problems.
However what onlookers saw on the streets of New York might mean she has to make an urgent call to her stylist again. Dressed in a hoodie and coat with scruffy jeans and trainers that had seen better days, with no make up and hair in a ponytail, Kate was a far cry from her Oscar glamor.
At the Oscars she had said, “It has been difficult to find the right balance of having a dress that’s fun to wear and that I also feel good wearing. Being on the red carpet is a privilege and you have a great time but I want to get it right,” defending her decision
