Kate Winslet steps out in Alexander McQueen as she’s awarded a CBE by the Queen

Titanic actress chose British designer for ceremony at Buckingham Palace in London

Kate Winslet wore an on-trend black skirt suit by Alexander McQueen as she received her CBE for services to drama by Queen Elizabeth II today.

The 37-year-old actress chose the British designer for the occasion, wearing a simple black pencil skirt and peplum style blazer with satin trim.
