The leading ladies of HBO's five-part miniseries Mildred Pierce stepped out in their retro best for the premiere last week. Both Kate Winslet and Evan Rachel Wood chose body conscious dresses that were inspired by stars of Old Hollywood. I thought Ms. Wood looked absolutely perfect from head to toe and put together a look that I would love to wear myself. So polished, she looked classic and sexy all at once.
Kate Winslet's dress was a nod to one worn by Joan Crawford in the original Mildred Pierce
