Kate Winslet's 'Titanic' Looks: Now and Then

She said she’d never let go, but Kate Winslet has certainly changed a few things since Titanic‘s epic media blitz in 1997: namely her hair color and sense of style.

For the Titanic 3D premiere at London’s Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday, the actress wowed in a custom Jenny Packham black silk crepe gown with Swarovski crystal cap sleeves and waist detail. (Sadly Leo was nowhere to be found.)

The sleek look is a big change from one of Winslet’s first Titanic looks, the emerald-green Alexander McQueen for Givenchy gown she wore to the 1998 Oscars. Paired with a statement necklace and her wild red curls, it was one of her first major — and most memorable — red carpet moments. (And funnily enough, her dashing costar didn’t make it to that event, either.)

“It was a white-knuckle ride for a year or two and then it all calmed down,” Winslet recently recalled to PEOPLE of those early years. “I do look back on that time and I wish that I had been a little better prepared, that someone had grabbed hold of me and said, ‘Listen, wake up — your life is going to change.’ I had great support — an agent, publicist, friends, all that stuff — but no one knew what was going to happen.”

Winslet’s certainly come a long way on the red carpet, though her gorgeous figure and critically acclaimed acting skills haven’t changed much at all. Tell us: Which of Winslet’s Titanic looks do you like best?

She is beautiful!

That is not a nice ‘Before’ picture of Kate. She has always remained classy and stood away from outrageous parties and drugs. To me, she looked beautiful before and still remains classy to this day.

I love her dress from now but she looks much prettier then! <3

Hannah on

I think the ‘Before’ looks better. The Black dress makes her shoulder look very wide and it washes her out.

maybe Leo was no where to be found because she let go after specifically telling him she would never let go…

Janice on

Dress now, hair then.

She is beautiful – then and now. She has aged quite gracefully!
