Kate Winslet: 'I Haven't Had My Nails Done in Months'

For an actress who’s had plenty of “Wow” moments on the red carpet and who has been the face of Lancôme for seven years, Kate Winslet insists that her life is everything but glam-centric. For one thing, she hasn’t had a manicure in months.

“I know it sounds very self-effacing because people say, ‘Oh you’re a film star. People probably come to your house to do it,'” the star says in the June/July issue of Harper’s Bazaar, her first cover since giving birth to son Bear Blaze in December. “But I don’t have the time to get my nails done apart from when I’m doing a photo shoot.”

And when she’s not hitting the carpet in figure-hugging gowns, Winslet’s uniform is a black blazer and Rag & Bone jeans. “They’re great, because I’m not quite back into my pre-pregnancy jeans,” she tells the mag.

Right now, the new mom quietly resides in Chichester, just south of London, and has no qualms with walking to a café with a girlfriend and baby Bear strapped to her chest.

In fact, it seems Winslet goes out of her way to avoid the trappings of an A-lister. Winslet’s marriage to Richard Branson’s nephew Ned Rocknroll is largely a mystery to fans. “Nobody knows him — it’s brilliant,” she says. “They like to think they know him. They like to be judgmental because of his name and everything, but it’s fabulous because no one knows anything about him.”

The Divergent star turns 40 next year, and says she doesn’t live in fear of frown lines. “I’m quite excited about it actually. I really enjoy getting older. You just don’t worry as much.”

But it’s her gig with Lancôme that will definitely help with the aging process — she’s marketing their latest wrinkle fighter, Rénergie French Lift: “Working with them does a huge amount for my self esteem, I’ve got to tell you.”

Lily Collins Is The New Face of Lancôme

Lily Collins may play a demon slayer in her latest film The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, but in real life she leaves her slaying to the red carpet, where she consistently knocks us dead with impeccable makeup looks like an extremely smokey eye and a bright red lip (not to mention her signature thick brows). So even though she’s still a relatively new addition on our style radar, we’re hardly surprised to learn that she’s just landed a major beauty contract.

Kate Winslet Wears Her Wedding Ring Out for the First Time

Kate Winslet Wedding Ring

When Kate Winslet married Ned Rocknroll in December, she got a killer new family name — and it turns out the ring that came with it isn’t half-bad either!

While grocery shopping in Hampshire, England, the actress, 37, gave the first glimpse of her engagement ring since Rocknroll, 34, proposed last summer — plus the wedding band she received from him in early December. It appears to be a simple yellow-gold setting with a solitaire stone and a matching band.

It would seem that Winslet has a preference for bold, chunky rings; her previous wedding ring (from her marriage to Sam Mendes) consisted of thick silver-colored bands with inlaid stones.

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.”

Kate Winslet's No. 1 Fashion Do Is a Don't

She’s probably been on at least 100 best-dressed lists, and for good reason: Kate Winslet tells PEOPLE she sticks to what works for her and obeys a single style rule.

“The only rule I have is don’t try something new and funky just because somebody else says that you should,” the 36-year-old shares. “I always stick with what I know, which are things that tend to be figure-hugging, structured and a solid color.”

Winslet, who works with a stylist to choose her outfits — “We have a really great collaborative relationship, and we just really enjoy it,” she says of their time together — also knows her body “very well,” she contends. “I don’t look good in patterns and pastels,” she explains. “Dresses that are made of great structured, slightly stretchy fabrics work on my body.”

Before she arrives at an event, Winslet meets with her glam team — L.A.-based hair stylist Renato Campora and makeup artist Jillian Dempsey — to get extra gorgeous. “I normally do a manicure, pedicure, and hair and makeup,” she explains. “I’m super low maintenance. I don’t have gaggles of people around, flapping and fussing. We just get ready, the dress goes on and that’s it.”
