A new role, a new city — and new hair! Kate Winslet shows off an extreme do — trading her long blonde locks for cropped, platinum hair that may or may not be a wig — in the April issue of British Vogue. In a revealing interview with Jo Ellison, the actress opens up about her recent divorce from husband Sam Mendes, and talks about the latest chapter in her life, which includes a temporary move to Paris to shoot Roman Polanski’s God of Carnage. And she also touches on her famous figure, which always has everyone talking. “I was a lot more voluptuous when I was younger,” she says. “I felt I had to defend my body, and took a very public stand, which I still absolutely believe in. But I’ve stopped talking about it now. And, at a certain point, it does become hypocritical.” Now, at 35, the actress is into Pilates and running, “not very well, I might add,” but mainly keeps busy by raising her children, 10-year-old Mia and 7-year-old Joe. However, that doesn’t mean the mom can’t have some fun! In the accompanying photos, shot by Mario Testino, Winslet works that hair — and looks divine. “I’m embarking on a new chapter in my adult life,” she shares. “And I’m single. And it doesn’t scare me at all.” The April issue of British Vogue is on newsstands now. Tell us: What do you think of Winslet’s look? Kate Hogan

She looks stunning. Absolutely Gorgeous!

She is a stunning woman!

She looks great, but I think it’s just a wig. There are pics of her on gettyimages.com from March 2 with darker blonde hair that looks like it has been pulled back as only long hair can be done. Unless this magazine shoot was done in the last week, which is highly unlikely, I’m betting this was a wig.

I like it better today than I did last night when I first saw it on Kate. It is such a change for her, I think I rebelled, lol!

Lisa on

Absolutely beautiful, she’s breathtaking!…I would do the same if I could afford the roots maintenance!!!

Andrea on

It definitely stands out her face features. She looks beautiful!!!

Amanda on

She has such a stunning face, especially her eyes..she could be bald and gorgeous!

Carol on

I hate it…love her

Kate is beautiful, but I don’t really like the cut. It doesn’t really match her skin tone. Just my opinion.
Aylet, I would think it’s a wig, too, except the title the on magainze says ‘New Look,’ so maybe it is real.
