Actress Kate Winslet shows off her curves in her second Octavia Stella McCartney dress
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? Actress Kate Winslet clearly thinks so, as she walked the red carpet in Paris last night in a red and black body-con dress by Stella McCartney similar to one she wore just a couple of months ago, which showed off her curves to perfection.
The Oscar-winner broke the Hollywood style rule of never wearing the same outfit twice, albeit in a different colour. Kate first wore the figure-hugging Octavia dress back in September in a black and white style at the Mildred Pierce premiere at the 2011 Venice Film Festival.
Not that she needed it, but the sporty designer number from Stella McCartney's autumn/winter 2011 collection makes the wearer appear even thinner than usual thanks to some clever colour blocking panels down the side, which have made the dress a firm favourite with celebrities and regular shoppers alike.
This time Kate wore a red and black version instead, which she teamed with sparkling black peep-toe sandals and jewellery, as she promoted her new film, Carnage, alongside co-star John C. Reilly and director Roman Polanski in the French capital.
But which style do you prefer – the red or the white? Tell us your thoughts in the comments box below.
