You've got to hand it to Kate Winslet. She knows where to turn when she's looking for a red carpet gown that really wows. Last week for the premiere of The Reader it was Herve Leger that had commentators buzzing about her curves, and on the red carpet to promote her new film Revolutionary Road last night, she chose current season Balmain to showcase her new super svelte body. It's a wise fashion choice as Balmain is rocking right now - it's the go to label for any woman wanting to up her rock chick/sex goddess quota. Sarah Jessica Parker and Demi Moore have both recently been spotted wearing Balmain for must-impress occasions and it's no surprise Gwyneth turned to the French label earlier this year when she underwent her metamorphosis from knit-your own yogurt yummy mummy to sizzling red carpet queen. Balmain has a history of red-carpet hits. This is the label that throughout the 1950s dressed the biggest movie stars: Ava Gardner and Brigitte Bardot were devotees. Since 2006 creative director Christophe Decarnin has turned the label around from dusty old couture house to the one-stop shop for Hollywood red-carpet glamour. As Kate Winslet clearly demonstrates!
