The night I spent with Kate Winslet

The Rodin Museum in Paris has always seemed to me as a place in which sadness and beauty lived together in the most profound of the silences. Perhaps because of this, it’s one of the most frequented buildings by Parisians, who go there to reflect and to take lonely strolls.

In its four floors, some of the most emblematic works of the artist intermingle with others signed by his lover, Camille Claudel, who committed suicide for being rejected by the sculptor.

All of it, united with the beauty of the gardens that surround it, encouraged the Lancôme’s executives to elect this museum as structure for the presentation of the new campaign of the Trésor fragrance and its new image, the English actress Kate Winslet, who substitutes Inés Sastre. The Spanish model and actress will endure being spokeswoman of some make-up products and of treatment of the French brand, but it will be Winslet who’s going to put her voice and face into one of the world’s most sold fragrances of the brand.

When Kate Winslet appeared in the fancy staircase that leads to the back side of the Rodin building, the dozens of the invited people to the dinner were already settled down at their tables, protected by an impressive crystal tent. Everybody stood up with great ovation greeting the new ambassador, who arrived wearing a tight black dress showing some cleavage.

These days Kate Winslet has nothing to do with that chubby girl from Titanic, the movie which made her famous along with Leonardo DiCaprio. At 31 years old, today she is one of the most respected of the business, the most intelligent, best actress and, above all, the humblest.

The new campaign, which was filmed this spring in Paris under the direction of the magnificent Peter Lindberg, affected everybody present leaving them very emotional. This ad will be, without a doubt, one of the most striking TV ads of next autumn.

When the party ended, I could approach Lindberg to ask him about his experience of shooting with Kate Winslet for Lancôme. I asked him for a description of the English woman and he told me: “Kate is everything that means to be simple and real”. While leaving the Rodin Museum, around 12:00 am, I noticed the presence of some boards at the entrance, about all the ones who had been invited could write their own idea on what love is. In the superior side of one of them, I read: “Love are my children and my husband”. It signed Kate Winslet.

  1. grr…. It ticks me off that they called her chubby! She is so not chubby and never was! So far as I’ve ever seen! The media should just let her be about her weight and all that crap! They always bring it back up and it always annoys me! Okay, ranting over…. Nice artical though, and fabulous translation Roberta!

  2. “Love are my children and my husband”. It signed Kate Winslet.

    That is so sweet! Kate is indeed very humble and beautiful…awesome article!

    It always pisses me off, too. Kate was never fat, nor even chubby at that matter (at least not when she started making films, she was a little chubby in her early teenage days). She was always a normal looking girl.

  4. “These days Kate Winslet has nothing to do with that chubby girl from Titanic…today she is one of the most respected of the business, the most intelligent, best actress and, above all, the humblest.”

    Umm…she wasn’t fat in Titanic, just a normal woman/human being. And why do they have to associate thinness with intelligence and respect? Even if Kate was ‘chubby’ today, does that mean she wouldn’t be all those nice things?

  5. Shara I love your point. It makes so mch sense. And to answere your question. Kate Winslet probly wouldn’t have all those nice things if she was chubby because media is soooo cruel these days about weight.
