Morning round-up: Kate Winslet's chosen her Oscar dress, plus Sarah Palin's £150,000 wardrobe trashed

26 January 2009


The Brits won big (again) at last night's Screen Actors Guild awards. Slumdog Millionaire bagged outstanding cast in a motion picture – and we reckon Freida Pinto should have got a gong for her Marchesa dress alone – whilst Kate Winslet picked up best supporting actress for The Reader. [People]

So it's little wonder Kate's already planning her Oscar dress. Apparently, the honour might be going to her old friend, London-based designer Ben de Lisi. He's prepared sketches of a ‘very understated, very clean, quite chic' dress. ‘I always emphasise her curves,' said the designer, who dressed her in that red asymmetric gown in 2002.

Remember the drama surrounding Sarah Palin's £150,000 campaign way back when we thought Barack Obama might not win? Well, it's currently stuffed in black bin liners at the Republican campaign offices. Let fashion-gate recommence. [Huffington Post]

And talking of fashion trauma, Chelsy Davy deals with her royal break-up in style. By shopping for knee-high boots in Russell & Bromley. Bless. [Daily Mail]

Meanwhile, America's still celebrating their new fashion icon Michelle Obama. Hours after she wore Isabel Toledo, New York's famous department store Barneys ripped apart their windows to pay homage to the fashion pairing. Here's a cute clip of it. Somehow we can't see that happening with Sam Cam and Selfridges... [Mrs-O]
