For cynics who assume that all celebrity advertorials undergo extensive Photoshopping, check out this newly released image from Kate Winslet‘s spring campaign for St. John. Though the official version highlights the star’s face more than November’s sneak peek, it does not downplay her gorgeous curves.

“You don’t have to be a size 2, or even a size 4, to be able to wear these garments.,” Winslet gushes in a new video for the brand (below). “They fall so well and are cut for women with a shape. And of course I love that,” she says. “That’s me all over.”

Highlighting a pair of pleated trousers as an unlikely favorite, Winslet says that the reception of her continued ambassadorship for the brand has been “heartwarming.”

“A lot of women say they believe they could wear a particular dress or a pair of pants or a sweater because they have seen that I am able to wear those pieces,” she says warmly. “It is really important to be able to dress in clothes quickly that look effortless and feel comfortable.”

You don’t need to be a size 2? No, you just need photoshop!

I looked the collection up and see that Nordstrom’s carry it … $900- $1200 for each piece. I guess someone has to pay for that video.

Least expensive items are blouses/tees for $295…completely out of my price range. Beautiful clothing line, though.

Oh, Lord, is she going on and on about her body like she always does?

You don’t need to be a size 2 but you do need to have a truck load of money to buy these clothes! I’ll stick with Forever 21 unless of course I win the lottery :)

You don’t have to be a size 2, or 4. BUT 6 is pushing it and 8??? Well that’s just insane….:)

you don’t have to be a size 2, but it is okay if you are. petite women don’t have to apologize for being small just as others don’t have to apologize for their stature.
