Kate Winslet always keeps it classy! The Oscar winner arrived at the Venice Film Festival on Thursday, wearing a fitted black dress paired with a nude-colored blazer and strappy heels. Kate was all smiles as cameras greeted her while she stepped onto the dock from a water taxi.

The Titanic star is in attendance at the film festival in support of her new film Carnage, directed by Roman Polanski. According to IMDB, the film is about two sets of parents who decide to have a cordial meeting after their sons are involved in a schoolyard brawl.

We haven’t seen much of Kate since her Emmy nominated role in the HBO TV movie Mildred Pierce.

However, this year is set to be huge for her on the big screen as she has two major film releases with Carnage, and the action Sci-Fi Thriller Contagion. Check out the official trailer for Carnage below and let us know what you think. The film hits theaters December 16, 2011.
