We’ve always been fans of finding great designer deals on Rent the Runway, and now, the site is bringing us some one-of-a-kind fashion in the form of its first-ever capsule collection.

Celeb-loved designer Narciso Rodriguez — who’s dressed the likes of Reese Witherspoon and Ashley Greene — created four pieces exclusively for the site, all reimagined versions of two gowns from his archives.

The “Cut Out ” gown (left), which rents for $400, channels the stunning red dress Jennifer Aniston wore on a 2008 cover of Vogue (a blue version is available as well). The “Tailor Made” gown and “Ivory Contrast” dress, which rent for $350 and $275, respectively, draw inspiration from a Rodriguez creation Kate Winslet wore to a New York gala in 2011.

The gowns retail for anywhere from $1,950 to $3,500, so the rental prices, while steep for the site, aren’t such a bad deal. Find them (plus more looks from Rodriguez) now on RenttheRunway.com.

For cynics who assume that all celebrity advertorials undergo extensive Photoshopping, check out this newly released image from Kate Winslet‘s spring campaign for St. John. Though the official version highlights the star’s face more than November’s sneak peek, it does not downplay her gorgeous curves.

“You don’t have to be a size 2, or even a size 4, to be able to wear these garments.,” Winslet gushes in a new video for the brand (below). “They fall so well and are cut for women with a shape. And of course I love that,” she says. “That’s me all over.”

Hats off to Kate Winslet for making the act of giving that much more beautiful. After lending her voice to the documentary A Mother’s Courage: Talking Back to Autism, Winslet founded the Golden Hat Foundation, named after a featured poem of the same name.

“Lancôme has given me the strength to go all the way, and I know this will open many doors,” the brand ambassadress says of the company’s Golden Hat range. Comprised of holiday-ready luminous powders, moisture-rich lipsticks and five new shades of nail polish, the collection “is so stunning and gorgeous and perfect for now,” Winslet tells Stylelist. “I mean, the colors are really festive.”

Ranging from $15-$40, the products, which are embossed with the foundation’s signature hat, help to promote awareness for children afflicted with non-verbal autism. (The actress has also spearheaded a book initiative of the same name, which features a slew of celebs all wearing the same golden topper.)

Kate Winslet Really Loves Stella McCartney's 'Miracle' Dresses

She has one of the most fabulous figures in Hollywood, but even Kate Winslet gets a little help looking slim sometimes. The star once again turned to Stella McCartney on Sunday, wearing a red-and-black version of the designer’s “miracle” dress (also known as the “Octavia,” $1595) to the Carnage premiere in Paris. The stretch cotton sheath is so nicknamed because its black side panels seriously flatter the figure.

Winslet has always been a fan of McCartney’s designs, wearing a sexy cut-out LBD to the Mildred Pierce premiere in March. But considering we rarely see her repeating dresses, it was surprising to see her in another of McCartney’s “miracle” dresses after wearing the original “Octavia” to the Venice Film Festival in September.

Liv Tyler and Lala Vazquez are also fans of the sheath, and Penélope Cruz wore a similar style to the Cannes Film Festival in May. The dresses are so popular, in fact, that knock-offs have popped up everywhere from ASOS.com to Topshop. “Usually when someone wears a dress no one else wants to wear it,” PEOPLE StyleWatch editor Kate Dimmock tells GMA. “This time around, people are willing to go there, because it’s that irresistible.”

VIDEO: Behind the Scenes with Kate Winslet for St. John

Jul/19/2011 at 12:00 PM ET

Kate Winslet has been busy working her sexy side as the new face of luxury knitwear brand St. John and as a special treat, the company has released a behind-the-scenes video from the shoot for the actress’s fall 2011 advertising campaign. In the clip above, shot at the historic Loew’s Theater in New Jersey, a sultry Winslet talks about wearing clothing that simply feels good — and looks good, too. “The clothes are cut beautifully, the fabrics are elegant, you can look extremely chic without trying too hard,” she says in the clip above. “You don’t feel that the clothes are something that only a model would be able to wear.” And with her own children to raise, Winslet said she feels inspired by fellow mothers and other women who give their all, one of the many reasons why she loves the ease of the brand. “The St. John collection is effortless and chic, and I think speaks to how real women live and dress today,” she shares in a statement.
