Kate Winslet in Badgley Mischka at TIFF premiere: basic or beautiful?

42nd Toronto International Film Festival

I’m not mad at the idea of Kate Winslet and Idris Elba doing a movie together. I am mad that they did THIS movie together, The Mountain Between Us. It could have been a lovely British romance between two 40-something actors. Instead we get a survival story of a plane crash with Idris and Kate playing the sole survivors. The TIFF premiere of TMBU was last night, and these are some photos from the premiere. Kate Winslet wore a white-and-black Badgley Mischka which… looks like everything else she’s been wearing the past few years. I don’t mind that Kate knows what silhouettes look best on her figure, but… I don’t know. It does get boring. Sofia Vergara is the same – all of her gowns sort of blend together. Here’s the trailer for TMBU:

I hate these kinds of survival movies, but here’s what’s really funny to me: Kate is playing a journalist and Idris is playing a doctor. Why is she the one “explaining” to him how long they could survive? I’m really asking.

Meanwhile, the bigger story from the TIFF premiere might be that Idris has a new girlfriend and they made their couple-debut at the premiere. Her name is Sabrina Dhowre and she’s 29 years old. She’s a former beauty queen, the 2014 Miss Vancouver. She’s gorgeous. She’s so pretty, in fact, that I’m actually sort of depressed at the moment. Like, I understand why Idris Elba didn’t come to Virginia to find me and take me to his premiere, but it’s still devastating to see him with his new girlfriend.

    Kate looks pretty and basic…but she’s still cancelled.
    And is that Idris’ midlife crisis or…? He’s such a mess in the personal department

    I don’t care for the straps. Her hair…I guess I know what look she was going for but it doesn’t quite work. Looks plain and unkempt.

  3. Squiggisbig says:

    Just here to reiterate that Kate is cancelled.

    Idris girlfriend reminds me a little of Kerry Washington.

  4. Megan says:

    I can’t believe Idris is cheating on me.

  5. Ankhel says:

    A bit basic AND beautiful. No contradiction. I do wish she’d worn higher heels, though. Both to raise the hem a bit, and because she’d look taller. Nitpicking, though.

  6. Nora says:

    Did Kate use botox? I don’t get the obsession with Idris.

  7. Becks says:

    I love Kate’s dress and think she looks great – hair, makeup, etc. But it does look like everything else she’s worn over the past few years. which I guess is fine. She knows what works for her and what she likes.

    Why is Kate on an Idris post?

  9. themummy says:

    1. That man is BEAUTIFUL.

    2. Kate does a perfect American accent, but I wish she was a British character. I like that accent better.

    3. I can’t see this movie because I saw a dog with them as they were stumbling off into the cold wilderness. That seems an unnecessary addition to the movie. I can’t imagine that the dog makes it through the ordeal and my heart can’t take that. Oh well.

    Sorry Kate – after Polanski & Woody Allen – cancelled.
