There's something about a trip to Buckingham Palace that brings out the exhibitionist in some women. When Katharine Hamnett collected her CBE in June 2011, her red feathered Philip Treacy creation stole the show (and nearly took the Queen's eye out). Never one to be outshone, Kate Winslet opted for a similarly show-stopping creation to be honoured by Her Majesty today.


Looking the epitome of elegance in a simple, black, Alexander McQueen skirt suit and classic court shoes, to collect her CBE, Kate saved the drama for atop her head opting for a custom-made hat by up-and-coming mask-maker and milliner, Natalie Ellner.


It's not the first time Ellner, 31, who hails from Cornwall and works out of a studio in Hackney, has collaborated with Kate. After her work caught the Oscar-winning actress's eye back in the summer, she was commissioned to create a series of animal-themed sculptural headpieces - including a fox, badger, bunny and a peacock - for Winslet and her family to wear to a private event.


Today's unusual feathered creation was also inspired by birds, this time Magpies, but also Art Deco lamps, and of course, Kate's McQueen outfit.


"It's taken about a month to create, going backwards and forwards with Kate," Natalie explains. "She had a lot of input, it had to reflect her personality".


So did Kate brief her to make something that would make such a bold statement?


"It's such an important, once-in-a-lifetime occasion, it's nice to have a statement piece… this is what evolved."


It's fair to say that Winslet is Natalie's highest profile customer to date. After graduating from the Costume, Make-up and Special Effects course at the London College of Fashion, she spent seven years making prosthetic limbs for amputees at a private clinic before starting her line 'Ellsewhere' four years ago.
