Kate Winslet Hits Santa Barbara Film Festival

Kate Winslet Hits Santa Barbara Film Festival

Kate Winslet knocks it out of the fashion ballpark in a stunning black-and-white Narciso Rodriguez dress at the 24th Annual Santa Barbara Film Festival at the Arlington Theatre on Friday (January 23) in Santa Barbara, Calif.

The 33-year-old actress, who finished off her look with Christian Louboutin peep-toes and Chopard jewels, was honored with the festival’s Montecito Award.

Kate was recently nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her work in The Reader (and not Revolutionary Road). She’s up against Anne Hathaway (Rachel Getting Married), Angelina Jolie (Changeling), Melissa Leo (Frozen River) and Meryl Streep (Doubt).

    she is rele pretty =]

  • wow

    i love, love, love her! she acctually looks HEALTHY! :D way to go, Kate, for being such an amazing role model. you are gorgeous.

  • yes

    i agree with you, #2, she does look good. she isn’t like the other celebs who thing sexy=stick thin.

  • Amand.

    She’s beautiful. I like her. But personally I think she way even prettier back then in the “Titanic era”, red headed. I don’t know, I just think she was gorgeous and sexy. Anyway, she’s a great actress and I’m glad she’s finally getting the recognition and awards she deserves since her career debut.

    If typical Brangelina fans will come on here, don’t! And don’t bring up the fact that Kate accidently forgot Angie’s name. It was long ago. You fans are just mad she’s been sweeping award shows while Brad and Angelina haven’t. They only are nominated for ratings. But i have to say I am no means a Brad fan, but he was good in The Curious Casee Of Benjmain Button(Forest Gump part two)
    Anyways, love Kate! She looks stunning. but I have noticed she’s been wearing a lot of black dresses, but hey she looks gorgoeus! And Amand, I kind of agree. She was prettier in her red head days, but her blonde look is more sexier. And if Brangelina fans also bring up Jennifer Anniston not getting nominated for her “Dog Movie” you might want to notice that the so called “Dog Movie” is still doing better than brad’s so called masterpeice. Ben Button is out of the top ten for the box office, marely and me is still in.

    She is the favorite going into the major award show! She’s guaranteed to walk away w/ at least one of the two….

    she is so beautiful! love her! :)

  • lakers fan in boston

    wow she looks freaking amazing
    her dress is ok, i just dont like the pattern
    ive never noticed she has some nice long legs until i saw this close up

  • Lucy

    Kate looks awesome. Sometimes her outfits have been awful but this one is gorge!

  • dancer

    try hard sexy when she’s not
    she’s a snotty cold witch

  • the shiznack

    I really liked her in The Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind – good stuff

  • the shiznack

    even though she has been racking up awards, I have a feeling she may be snubbed at the oscars by Hathaway

  • kirstie

    Hey, I’m a Brangelina fan but I never have had anything bad to say about Kate. She’s gorgeous. I love her dress and she’s been a fantastic actress forever.

  • http://www.justjared.com Kay

    Yeah #12, you might be right but I hope not. I love Anne, she’s very young and a versatile actress but like I said she’s young and I think she has much to prove herself of an actress, I think she can wait. Kate has been snubbed so many times and is the youngest person to recieve 6 Oscar nominations, hope she wins! Plus this is Anne’s first Oscar nominations, it would be hard to win your first Oscar on your first Oscar nomination. But I know Angelina Jolie has done that.

  • http://www.justjared.com Kay

    And #13 I said most Brangelina fans hate Kate, I didn’t mean all. Some people that are fans of brad and Angie like Kate too but not a lot on here!

  • Jessica

    She looks gorgeous!

  • dianel

    I hope Kate gets an oscar love her dress

    Thanks

  • [☆I n F a m o u s☆]

    …`hot.

  • LolaSvelt

    She needs to wear more colour because she’s been looking the same recently.

    Also…her pose isn’t very flattering and is very awkward. Other than that, great actress. Saw The Reader yesterday. Great performance, good film.

  • Not impressed by JA

    I don’t like her dress at all. She has no style whatsoever and it’s a pitty cause she is beautiful with a very interesting face. I think that she should have stayed red-headed.

  • Anon

    This dress is awful. Narcisco Rodriguez has hits and misses. This is a big miss. Kate needs some kind of consultant to dress her. She is so pretty. She needs help.

    And you have the nerve to bring Brangelina fans and to talk sh*t about them ? Don’t transfer your own agenda and tell others not to do Kate what you are doing yourself to Angelina, right her !.
    -
    Most Angelina fans like Kate, mind you !. It’s you who like to pit them one aginst the other and even dismiss their nomination. Mind you, they deserve it !

  • y

    Well well well. Look at her arms. They look NOTHING like on the cover of Style Magazine this month. I KNEW that photo was PHOTOSHOPPED!

  • y

    And, her new fake lips look like s.h.i.t. Tell me she DOES have body image issues.

  • http://www.justjared.com Kay

    #23 it’s not me.
    Go to Kate’s post about her and Leo at their Revolutionary Road international premiere . EVERY angelina fan was bashing Kate(and Leonardo) and just praising Brad and Angelina as goddest. They’re not Joseph and Mary for heaven’s sake!

  • http://www.justjared.com MRS> Connoly

    y,
    Kate happens to have great body and she doesn’t have surgery ,FYI!

  • anonymous

    Kate has done what she used to continually brag about never doing. She has gone Hollywood and glammed it up. She hardly looks like herself anymore. I know she really, really wants the Oscar. Leaving her husband to hook up with and marry Sam Mendes was step one.

    She does look good but her aggressive campaign to get that Oscar has meant that now not only England knows what a flibbertigibbet she is – the whole world is learning it.

    Good luck, Kate.

    One thing I love about Kate is that she doesn’t care about box office success,(which is weird since she starred in the highest grossing movie)
    Kate cares about the art. If she likes the role, she’ll take it. Most of her movies after Titanic have been box office poison, but she doesn’t care. She’s a true actress.

  • ali

    beautiful!! great actress!

  • roqi

    Love Her!! She’s really pretty! And I think its really brave of her to wear very little make-up under all that light.

  • http://Gk@gmail.com Brian

    Amazing! Simply breathtaking

  • debra

    Thanks Kay for pointing that out because some of the people on this site have been really pathetic but then someone reminded me that this site is literred with Angelina Jolie obsessed loonies who think she is entitled to win everything and the world revolves around her so they have been angry at Kate since the Globes where she obviously accidentally forgot her name and are turning it into something nasty. But the real issue is they are jealous because Kate is a more respected actress than Jolie, and is sweeping the awards. I saw the Reader and she was so brilliant in it even better than Streep in Doubt. If Winslet doesn’t win this year something is wrong with you people.

    And Kate has GREAT fashion sense what are you talking about. She always wears amazing things to the Oscars. I’ll never forget that gorgeous red dress with the flowers draped on the shoulder she wore to the 2002 Oscars (which Anne Hathaway copied last year) or the beautiful blue dress she wore when she was nominated for Eternal Sunshine. She’s one of the best dressed celebrities! She’s been wearing chic outfits to premieres too like the LA premiere of Revolutionary Road. And I like this dress here, it’s a very chic design. She is the English rose for sure.

    Anyone else love Kate?

  • Janet

    I miss the old kate. I do love her and she is gorgeous. But she always claimed she never played the hollywood game but that’s what she’s doing now. Please don’t jump on me! Just my opinion.

  • Jen1

    She really is stunning. And has such style. All her own. Kate rocks! :)

  • hmm

    Janet, you don’t have to apologize because you are right. Kate Winslet has flown under the radar for years and now she’s being bombarded at airports? Her people are running a full out campaign for the Oscar and that is totally fine, but she wants to act like she is above it all and she is playing the game as well as anyone. Everyone knows that she will probably win the Oscar but no one really says that it’s really about her performance in “The Reader” they just keep saying how it’s a shame that she hasn’t won yet after being nominated so many times. i find it hysterical the people who claim to love her so much yet her box office performances have been dismal since Titanic. Let’s face it a lot of the Winslet lovefest has to do with her winning over AJ at the GGs and then “accidentally” dissing her at the same time.

    Since when are NOBODY’S welcome over there, folks?

  • LuckyL

    Boring

  • Jenna

    To #28 there’s nothing wrong with glamming it up! Just because Kate is down to earth doesn’t mean she’s not allowed to look lovely at events. She even says she feels like playing a part when she’s doing that sort of glamour thing. Do you want her to show up at premieres in her jammies?

    I can’t believe how rude you are about her marriage to Sam Mendes being step one. Who are you to say something like that? Are you them? You can’t deny their relationship. It’s real.

    Goodness this woman NEVER does win. Never. There’s always at least someone who complains. When she loses weight, people call her a sell out. When she gains some weight, we have delusional people who call her fat. When she says she wants an Oscar people criticize her for taking awards too seriously. When she pretends not to care, people call her out for it. I think people are jealous of her success.

    She’s a talented and lovely woman with a good head on her shoulders, a good strong head on her shoulders. She speaks her mind and I like that. She doesn’t give a flying fuck about what people say or think of her. She just does her job. And she does a damn well good job.

  • Amy

    I agree with both Janet and Hmm. Kate has always been an unbelievable actress but everyone’s only jumped on the bandwagon this year. What about all the previous movies that she acted so wonderfully? And when did she start to conform so much? Her make-up, outfits, body shape, and even attitude have changed a bit. She’s acting just like the people she pretends to despise. She’s so gorgeous and talented butI agree. I want the old Kate back!

    ;). I’m saying “Hummmm” too.

  • LolaSvelt

    She’s hardly ‘box office posion’. Her films were not made for the Box Office.

    Nicole Kidman, however, not hating on her, but she makes too many big budget films, so it’s not a shock that her films suffer at the Box Office.

    Thank you very much again.

  • Sonia Wu

    I like her two parts high heels very much.
    She does look great, even with minimal makeup and very natural hair do

  • ellie

    Kate you beautiful.. my guess is either you or Anne.. Both great actresses

  • http://promomami.blogspot.com becca

    I read ‘The Reader’ a while ago and like it – just saw the movie yesterday and LOVED IT!!!

    Kate really knocked this one out of the park. She’s an amazing and talented actress and a beautiful person.

    Her co-star, David Kross, was excellent as well.

    I have to read and see Revolutionary Road next. I’m such a Kate Winslet fan.

  • http://www.obamadatingsite.com/ Bobby

    I’m really looking forward to the Reader. It seems to be a very sensual Holocaust movie.

  • agatha

    she is such a great actress

  • Great actress

    I think Kate and Angelina are very good actresses. I think Meryl is an excellent actress! I do hope Kate wins the Oscar as her performance in The Reader is excellent! Good luck to all!!
