Kate Winslet wears Alexander McQueen

With a feathered hat

Kate Winslet took a trip to the palace yesterday to pick up her CBE from the Queen for services to drama; congratulations Kate!

The actress opted for simplicity in her outfit, wearing a black structured skirt suit by Alexander McQueen. She accessorised the chic black look with a black and white feather hat, inspired by magpies.

The hat was a creation by up and coming milliner, Natalie Ellner, the Telegraph reports. ELLE cover star Kate commissioned the hat especially for the occasion and, according to the hat maker; ‘It's taken about a month to create, going backwards and forwards with Kate,’ Natalie explained that the star ‘had a lot of input, it had to reflect her personality’
