Even all dressed up, Kate maintains her relaxed California-girl spirit. She showed up at the Golden Globes looking radiant in a slip dress - and left with a statuette for her supporting actress role as Penny Lane in Almost Famous.
For the 73rd Academy Awards, Kate chose an icy blue Chloé by Stella McCartney dress topped with a beaded capelet and a wild, curly updo. It was an uncharacteristic style choice for her (and the designer, for that matter), and the look has been popping up on "Worst Oscar Fashion" lists ever since.
