Kate Winslet showed off her curves at the premiere of her new mini-series Mildred Pierce in New York last night. The actress wore a tight Stella McCartney dress with polka dot paneling down the side.

Battling Kate for hottest red carpet look was Evan Rachel Wood, who also looked gorgeous in a plum, long sleeve jersey dress by Elie Saab and Hollywood glam hair and makeup.

The two women were joined on the carpet by everyone’s favorite firecracker Melissa Leo, director Todd Haynes, Guy Pearce and James LeGros, who will both star in the mini-series.

Mildred Pierce, which debuts on HBO on March 27, tells the story of a woman who separates from her husband, opens a new restaurant and falls in love with a new man. Kate will play Mildred while Evan will play her daughter Veda in the five-part series.

Kate recently opened up about the tough role. “We had more to shoot, and we had to work a lot faster, but the determination and the level of focus that we all had to have because we were limited was so much more intense, honestly, than certainly any film I’ve been a part of,” she said. “I mean film, schmilm. I’m telling you, television is so much harder.”
