Kate Winslet's Lucky Charm -- Her Initialed YSL Clutch!

Kate Winslet might be the epitome of classic chic, but the British actress showed off her quirky side last week when she took to the red carpet toting a bespoke purse emblazoned with her very own initials. At the Bambi Film Awards in Germany, Winslet clutched a black Atelier Yves Saint Laurent by Stefano Pilati satin purse with “KW” embroidered in sparkling crystals. Worn with a classic black Collette Dinnigan dress featuring sequined shoulders and a sheer lace back, it seems the fun purse may have also been her lucky charm. The bespoke accessory was in fact a gift, given to the Oscar-winning actress by Pilati himself during award season earlier this year. Having won her Oscar in a Yves Saint Laurent dress, perhaps the actress thought her bag would bring her some magic. If so, she thought right! Nominated for best international actress for her role in The Reader, Winslet walked away with a heavier but no less dazzling accessory — an 18 carat gold and bronze Bambi award, weighing a staggering 3.6kg — far too heavy for that lucky purse but certainly one for keeps!–Monique Jessen
