The Scoop on Kate Winslet's Birthday Gift from Her New Boyfriend

10/12/2010 at 05:00 PM ET


Ever wondered what a successful male model buys his famous Hollywood actress girlfriend for her birthday? Well, if Louis Dowler is anything to go by, it’s luxe fashion all the way. For his girlfriend Kate Winslet‘s 35th birthday last month, he paid the Belstaff store in London a visit and came away with the perfect gift—one of their classic leather jackets. Store manager of the Mayfair boutique, Fabio de Matteis tells PEOPLE: “He wanted a special present for Kate and took his time looking at the whole collection.” After browsing the British brand’s iconic selection of leather jackets, shoes and accessories, he opted for the Triumph jacket, a fitted, belted style with stud detailing. And Dowler wasn’t shy when it came to gushing about the birthday girl. “He said how much Kate loved her motorcycle but she only had masculine things to wear on it, so he wanted to treat her to something more feminine.” Obviously, the jacket, which retails for more than $1,000, was a hit as Winslet has already been spotted working a new biker-chic look, accessorized with a smile and a certain model on her arm. A triumph indeed. –Monique Jessen

Awww, that was so nice of Kate Winslet’s Boyfriend, Louis Dowler, to do! Also, congrats to Entourage’s, Constance Zimmer, on getting married!

Used to like her, have lost respect. Marry, have a kid, divorce, repeat. Those poor kids!

Josie on

I love her. She’s so different from other actresses, there’s this really down to earth dignity about her. I watch and read her interviews and she just can’t be bothered with the whole glitz and glamour life. She looks pretty in that picture!

Adam on

I LOVE HER! She is the best actress and person~

S.E. on

I wish she wouldn’t wear her hair like that, makes her look like Mickey Rourke. Love the jacket.

yep, all a part of her sinister master plan – way to call her out, ryry.

Kim on

Love her..and leather jackets! Lucky girl! :)

Seriously? on

Ryry, you must have little respect for a whole LOT of people since she is FAR from the only person to divorce multiple times. Trust me, children are better off with their parents divorced than living in a home filled with tension and no love. If stories are true, Kate’s last husband was cheating on her. I guess you would prefer she just look the other way and remain married. Yeah, that would set a good example for her children….
