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.”

Try Dresses Inspired by Jennifer Aniston, Kate Winslet on Rent the Runway

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.


Kate Winslet: 'You Don't Have to Be a Size 2'

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.”

Kate Winslet's 'Golden' Gift Idea

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.”
