Kate Winslet "enjoys" having a curvy figure.
The 'Contagion' actress is famed for her hour-glass figure and is very confident about her body after learning over the years what clothes suit her shape.
She told InStyle magazine: "I'm lucky to go in and out at the right places, proportionately â that's something I inherited from my mother. I enjoy my shape and my curves. At the same time, you have to know how to dress. If you are hippy, then pleats off the waist? Forget it! You absolutely cannot wear them. It's about knowing how to work with the right fabric."
Kate â who has two children, Mia, 11, her daughter with first husband Jim Threapleton, and seven-year-old Joe, her son with estranged spouse Sam Mendes â insists it is important to think about the whole look when deciding on an outfit.
The 35-year-actress â who is believed to be dating Sir Richard Branson's nephew Ned Rocknroll - said: "Recently, I wore a simple, black Victoria Beckham column dress with long sleeves and small, gold belt detailing on The Front. I knew that a curly hairdo would have gone completely against the dress, so went for a high sculpted ponytail, with a little bit of height in the front. It pulled the whole look together."
