Kate Winslet loves a deep solid color, and here she is, back on the scene in one:

All the elements are there: good makeup, cute non-traditional shoes, a spirited pedicure, a great bracelet. I’m not sure I think the dress is fabulous – I might wish it had found a way to be more flattering in the chest/under-chest area, because it sort of swallows her up there — but given that she just gave birth in December and has been out infrequently, this a very solid entry in the Winslet 101 canon and sometimes nailing the basics is all you need. Welcome back, Winslet. Please do a movie that’s a bit more chipper soon.
