Kate Winlset urges women to cover up on the red carpet

Oscar-winner Kate Winslet is regarded as one of 's most elegant adornments, never failing to display her old-school glamour on the red carpet.

Now the 42-year-old, admits she's concerned women reveal too much flesh in a bid for attention.

'There's something sort of uncomfortable to me about seeing women who are clearly presenting themselves in a way that's designed to make people stare, but not for the right reasons,' warns Winslet.

'When I walk into a room, I hope to have interesting conversations with people; I'm not interested in whether people look at me or not. In fact, quite the opposite.'

The Berkshire-born mother of three, who shot to fame in Titanic with Leonardo DiCaprio in 1997, admits her attitude to wardrobe choices is largely influenced by her late mother Sally, who died from liver cancer last year.

'If I have to come to an event, it's always nice to feel a bit pulled together, but nothing that draws too much attention.

'My mother always said, 'I don't like show-offs, please don't wear any show-off clothes.' 

Even when I became the me post-Titanic, she would still say, 'Please, darling, don't wear anything that draws too much attention.'

Her comments come in the wake of the backlash against sexism following the Harvey Weinstein scandal. 

Winslet made her first film, Heavenly Creatures, for Weinstein's Miramax Films and she has described how the disgraced producer brought it up every time she saw him.
