Kate Winslet: I got told off by my daughter for my Oscars dress choice
Kate Winslet has revealed she incurred the wrath of her daughter with her choice of dress for the Oscars.
Kate has previously revealed that eight year old Mia had objected to Kate wearing black so much on the red carpet during the award season - but she told Oprah Winfrey on Monday that even avoiding black didn’t satisfy the young fashionista.
The Revolutionary Road star explained she phoned her children at their family home in New York after she won the Best Actress Academy Awards for her role in The Reader: “I said, ‘Hi, Mia, did you jump up and down?’
“[Mia] says: ‘Yes, I did, Mum, I did. I need to talk to you about the dress - it was grey.’ She was absolutely mortified I wore a grey dress.”
Kate wore a grey-blue Yves Saint Lauren gown with a black lace panel for the big night and added that unlike in previous years, she made her decision early on: “I think in this time in the economy, it’s just not nice to have people make lots of dresses and you just wear one out of a possible five.
“So Yves St. Laurent very kindly said, ‘We’d like to make something for you,’ and that was what we did.”
