2012 was quite a year for Kate Winslet. She married her husband, Ned Rocknroll
, as well as receiving her CBE for services to drama. Congratulations all round. Despite all that, she still found time to grace the cover and star in the 10-page accompanying fashion portfolio for Harper’s Bazaar U.K.’s April issue
— and a very nice job she does, too.
In her interview with the magazine’s editor, Justine Picardie, Winslet describes the impact the previous years have had on her, “I’ve really learnt a great deal about myself, in the last four years in particular. I think I can see more clearly now – about how the pattern of past experiences has shaped who I am, and the characters I have played – and I’m grateful for that.” She also reveals (as we had always secretly suspected) that when she received her CBE from the Queen, she verified: “Oh my God, she [the Queen] looks amazing. Beautiful skin – and wonderful thick hair.” Thick hair, we knew it! Click on the slideshow to see Mrs Rocknroll looking every inch the modern-day silver screen goddess.
The full interview appears in the April issue of Harper's Bazaar UK, on sale Thursday March 7. Also available as a digital edition. And, click through, here, to watch the behind-the-scenes video from the shoot.
