Kate Winslet looks like she’s bouncing back in style after her split from Sam Mendes. She’s been dating British model Louis Dowler for the past month (at least), and on Saturday, they made a big public outing in London. I guess the kids are with Sam this weekend? Probably. This outing looks like a planned photo-op, so maybe they’re getting serious? Not engagement serious, but just dating exclusively serious.

Looking happy and healthy in London this weekend, Oscar winner Kate Winslet slipped on a little black dress to hit the town with her new boyfriend, British model Louis Dowler. Paparazzi snapped pics of the couple walking hand-in-hand and hopping inside a cab, laughing and relaxed after a night of dinner and clubbing. The actress and her second husband, director Sam Mendes, announced their separation in March after seven years of marriage (they have a 6-year-old son, and Winslet is also mom to a 9-year-old daughter from her first marriage).

Winslet, 34, reportedly met her new beau, also 34, through mutual friends at a party. Despite reconciliation reports describing Mendes, 45, as still in the picture, speculation about the actress’ new romance escalated in early August when she was photographed alongside Dowler as he worked out shirtless in New York City. Last month, a source talked about Winslet’s new relationship to U.K.’s News of the World: “They’ve been on lots of dates and get on really well….Louis has a good sense of humour and really is a lovely guy.”

Dowler has modeled for Burberry ads with Kate Moss, as well as for British designer Paul Smith and Italian fashion house Canali. Meanwhile, his globe-trotting new love has been busy with location shoots in recent months, filming the Todd Haynes remake ‘Mildred Pierce’ (the 1945 original won Joan Crawford an Oscar) in Manhattan and an ad campaign for Swiss watchmaker Longines (costarring Indian beauty Aishwarya Rai) in Rome.

It would interesting if Kate ended up with a male model – I always thought of her as needing to be with a guy who challenges her, but maybe not so much. Maybe she just wants something pretty to look at. I wouldn’t fault her for that – plus, I think Kate is probably looking for something and someone very uncomplicated, and this Louis guy sounds like he’s not all about the drama. So… good for Kate. Louis looks a bit like Gabriel Aubry, yes? Like a bug-eyed version of Aubry.

    A new cougar in town! She looks old and nasty here wow.

  2. Shawna says:

    Hmmm, for a male model, is that as good as it gets in England?

  3. canadianchick says:

    Good salve to the ego post separation to bag a male model, good for her.

  4. mila says:

    My gay radar went off!But they’re both stunning, beautiful people, wow.

  5. maggiegrace says:

    He needs some thyroid medication.

  6. Kate says:

    Good for her; sometimes it’s nice to just, as Kaiser said, have something pretty to look at! Go on and get it, Kate!

  7. asiont says:

    what is wrong with his eyes?? creepy

  8. Kate says:

    I am all for her having fun, but she is way too good for a photo op. She actually has talent. She doesn’t need the paparazzi to sustain/bolster her career.

  9. Bina says:

    Jumping from one relationship to the next without barely a pause in between ain’t gonna make it hurt any less, Kate.

  10. Amanda says:

    @Kate I don’t think it’s a photo op. That club they went to is a major hotspot in London. Stick around there long enough and you’re bound to see someone at least slightly famous. Another case is that might have made reservations there and someone tipped the photographers that they were coming. Also, Kate is one classy woman, she doesn’t need a photo op. Her career is already on fire!

  11. duchess says:

    lets rock n roll, Kate!!!! you only live once – so go for your badge!!!!

  12. D says:

    @maggiegrace….I thought the same thing!!

    I don’t think he looks anything like Gabriel Aubry.

  13. Iggles says:

    Whoa, his eyes *are* creepy..

  14. danielle says:

    Good for her! But yeah, for a model he’s a little odd looking.

  15. Raven says:

    New cougar in town??? she’s 34. What are you, 12?

  16. tar says:

    LMAO maggiegrace. I say: good for her. She looks hot, she must be having fun.

  17. bite me says:

    hmm, so not yet divorce but dating, i thought that was a big no, no… i see kate is working on her third baby daddy, u go girl

  18. Samigirl says:

    I think he has gayface. But he is attractive.

  19. Gwen says:

    @ emer – Cougars are older women who go for much younger men. He’s the same age she is. And really, “old and nasty”?

  20. pebbles says:

    What work did she have done? Really, her face looks different somehow. Can’t put my finger on it though…….must be subtle.

  21. émer says:

    Raven I am much older than 12 ! LOL. I actually thought he was much younger than her. Probably because she looks older than usual here, I dunno.

  22. Tia C says:

    @ Shawna: LOL! Exactly what I was thinking upon first glance…

    He looks more like her gay BFF, not her BF. Time will tell, I suppose.

  23. émer says:

    Gwen these pics of her are not flattering at all. And the guy.. Well he looks like he could be her little brother!

  24. Angel says:

    Hahah, Kate is NOT a cougar. Jesus! She is 34 and she is just so lovely. I am happy for her, but this guy doesn’t do it for me, personally, though none of her guys ever have. She certainly doesn’t go by looks! She is my idol (as far as actresses go, anyway) and I hope she ends up with whomever makes her happiest, but my silly little heart secretly pines for her and Leo.

  25. BethL says:

    How is Kate a cougar? They are the same age. There are several pictures of them very much together not hiding so this isn’t a going public photo.

  26. Rosie says:

    Way to go Kate!!! Just need to learn how to use self tanner..,. those feet look scary!

  27. dani says:

    ewww, really?

    she’s killin that dress tho.
