They may both be named Kate and both be from England, but that's where the similarities between Kate Winslet and Kate Middleton end.
Harsh? Maybe, but what we love about the Labor Day star is her penchant for colorful, curve-enhancing frocks that let her personality shine. This square frock is what a PTA president wears to a retirement party! Not that we're saying the Duchess of Cambridge dresses like a suburban mom. She probably wouldn't wear this Narciso Rodriguez look either.
It's not only that the black-and-white combo is more boring than we expect from this blonde beauty. The proportions on the top vs. bottom are way off! It's like Kate is wearing a white t-shirt under a black strapless dress. And despite how hard it tries, the wild fascinator isn't distracting from the overall look.
Maybe Kate-the-actress could have a sit-down with Kate-the-royal to talk style shop? Kate W could teach Kate M how to wear red, and Kate M could teach Kate W how to never wear this dress again!
