Added 4 HQs and one MQ picture of Kate at the Costume Institute Gala honoring Alexander McQueen yesterday, May 2.

Kate Winslet confessed she was wearing her Stella McCartney black lace and stretch gown over nothing all: “No bra, no knickers. It’s fantastic, at 35 and after two kids! I can just slip on a dress and go!”

Checking off a list of errands along the way, Kate Winslet was spotted out and about in New York City’s West Village earlier yesterday (May 2).

The Mildred Pierce actress kicked off her week in a casual way, sporting a pair of black and white sunglasses, brown purse, black coat, blue jeans and black flats.

As for her career efforts, Kate has a busy week ahead of her while she readies herself for the duties surrounding her newest modeling endeavor as the face of St. John.

Winslet, who also represents Lancôme beauty and Longines watches, will front the brand’s Autumn 2011 campaign, in which she’ll start shooting for in New Jersey later this week (May 5).

The notion of “deleting” bad memories has been somewhat of a pop-culture wishlist staple for a long time, and was a huge plot point in the Jim Carrey/Kate Winslet film Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind.

In partially encouraging, partially terrifying news, scientists have identified a protein kinase in marine snails that could one day be instrumental in erasing bad memories from our recall, sparing the trauma of reliving the upsetting moments:

Scientists found they could erase long-term memories in the snails by inhibiting the activity of a specific protein kinase called PKM — molecules that chemically modify proteins.

“I think we will be able to alter memories someday to reduce the trauma from our brains,” said the study’s senior author, David Glanzman, a UCLA professor of integrative biology and physiology and of neurobiology.

It may seem that snail memories are far less complex than those of humans, but Glanzman says the similarities indicate promise in similar human circumstances:

“Almost all the processes that are involved in memory in the snail also have been shown to be involved in memory in the brains of mammals,” Glanzman said.

The study was published in the April 27th issue of Journal of Neuroscience.

Leonardo DiCaprio described Kate Winslet as one of the greatest actresses of her generation, and he is not in the least exaggerating. The 35-year-old British actress has an outstanding list of film credits to her name, starring in more than 25 movies. Here are some of the highlights of her career:

Heavenly Creatures (1994)

Heavenly Creatures was Kate Winslet’s first feature film. Not only was she 17 at the time, she was also competing against 175 girls who auditioned for the role of Juliet Hulme. With her winning the part, her career as a notable movie actress took off.

Winslet plays one of two sisters who get separated by their parents who fear that their fantasy lives are becoming too intense. She and Melanie Lynskey, who plays the other sister, were so absorbed by their role that they stayed in character after the filming was done, according to director Peter Jackson.

Sense and Sensibility (1995)

First published in 1811 by the English novelist, Jane Austen, Sense And Sensibility tells the story of two daughters and their mother who are left in reduced circumstances after their father dies. Winslet plays Marianne Dashwood, one of the two daughters. Her performance earned her various awards.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

Although the movie tells the story about a couple who undergo a procedure to erase each other from their memories, we would not want to see Kate Winslet’s neurotic performance in Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind being erased from this list. Alongside comedic actor Jim Carrey, she gives a wonderful and witty performance which proves that Winslet is capable of taking on any genre.

As a result she got nominated for an Oscar in the category, “Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role.” She mentioned in Empire Magazine that the movie features her own favorite performance.
