The designer of Kate Winslet's Golden Globes gown has praised her elegant style.

The 'Mildred Pierce' actress chose a black and white Jenny Packham dress from the British designer's latest collection and Jenny revealed she was thrilled to see Kate step out on the red carpet in her gown on Sunday (15.01.12).

She told "I am a huge fan of Kate's work so I was very excited. Kate's style is very strong, so putting a selection of styles together was effortless. The dress Kate chose was literally completed the day we selected the styles. I think she looks divine - but I am biased!"

Jenny - whose clothes have been worn by Angelina Jolie and the Duchess of Cambridge - believes Kate is a perfect model for her dresses because they compliment her beauty rather than overpowering it.

She added: "I believe very much that the dress should make the woman feel confident and attractive. Kate, for Example, wears very classic glamorous styles with well-defined silhouettes. The dress chosen combines these looks and does not overpower or compete with Kate's beauty."
