Kate Winslet looks gorgeous as the new face of American clothing brand St. John.

In these new “behind the scenes” shots the Oscar-winning actress, 35, lounges on a wooden table wearing black gloves and a one-shoulder dress.

In another the Titanic star sprawls on the floor wearing soft knits and loose grey trousers.

“The St. John collection is effortless and chic, and I think speaks to how real women live and dress today,” said the Golden Globe, SAG and BAFTA winner.

The creative director of the company, George Sharp, is thrilled to have the Titanic actress on board.

“Kate is an ideal choice for our new campaign,” he said. “She is an accomplished, beautiful woman with an extraordinary body of work, and one of the most admired actors of her generation.”

The campaign was photographed by Craig McDean at the historic Loew’s Theater in New Jersey, New York. The campaign will be launched in print in September.

While in New York recently to attend the Met Costume Institute Gala as a guest of Stella McCartney, Kate Winslet was also working at an old movie theater in Jersey City. But it wasn’t for a minimum wage! The British actress was there to model St.John Knit’s Autumn 2011 campaign.

Of course a theater is a fitting setting for the Oscar winner, who was photographed by Craig McDean for the brand for which she has signed a one-year contract. “They want to keep it looking like me and not have it look like me pretending to be a model wearing these clothes,” Winslet said of the shoot. “I’m obviously not a model. I’m not the size of a model. I don’t have the face of a model or the shape of a model.” Interesting to see her ditch her recent peroxide crop!

Added 8 new pics from the St. John’s photoshoot:

When Kate Winslet visited a historic New Jersey movie theater last week, it wasn’t to catch a film; the actress was shooting her first campaign photos as the new face of St. John. The Oscar-winning star was recently tapped to front the American knitwear line — taking over for past models Angelina Jolie and Karen Elson — and did so in a glamorous setting, at Jersey City’s historic Loew’s Theater. “They want to keep it looking like me and not have it look like me pretending to be a model wearing these clothes,” Winslet told WWD the day of the shoot. “I’m obviously not a model. I’m not the size of a model. I don’t have the face of a model or the shape of a model.” What she does have, though, is the timeless beauty the brand was looking for. St. John is using Winslet to help evolve its image, adding looks like silk gowns, leopard print coats and woven pants — plus costume jewelry and handbags — to its usual collections of skirt suits. “To me, it’s fresher than that,” Winslet said. “It seems fresher than that because of the fabrics. They’re extremely delicate, extremely wearable and very flattering. I have worn several of their pieces over the years.” We’ll see just what she’s been wearing in September, when her ads debut in magazines nationwide.

This is Kate Winslet’s first ad for St. John Knits, the first apparel brand the actress has ever signed on to shill for. “I have worn several of their pieces over the years,” says Winslet. The shoot took place at an old movie theater in New Jersey. “They want to keep it looking like me and not have it look like me pretending to be a model wearing these clothes,” explains Winslet. “I’m obviously not a model. I’m not the size of a model. I don’t have the face of a model or the shape of a model.”
