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.

Kate completed the look with a pair of black kitten heel court shoes and a hat by Natalie Ellner for Ellsewhere.

It’s not the first time the Oscar-winning actress has stepped out in McQueen as she wore a similar dress by the designer at a pre-Baftas party celebrating her achievements recently.

The mum-of-two styled that look with a pair of black peep toe heels and gold accessories, leaving her blonde locks loose around her face.
