Kate Winslet Wears a Confusing Hairstyle on a Titanic Movie Poster Promoting the Upcoming Rerelease

More than two decades ago, Kate Winslet iconically starred as Rose DeWitt Bukater in the 1997 romantic tragedy Titanic opposite Leonardo DiCaprio’s boyishly charming Jack Dawson. The historical blockbuster cleaned house during the 1998 awards season, winning Golden Globes, Academy Awards, and Grammys—though neither Winslet nor DiCaprio won any acting awards, despite nominations. (The real win was their heartwarming friendship.)

Now, 25 years later, Paramount Pictures revealed a new Oscar-worthy main character of Titanic: Kate Winslet’s hair.

The film is set to relive its glory days when a remastered version is rereleased in theaters. Instead of promoting the 25th anniversary with the original, fondly remembered movie poster, Paramount Pictures had something different in mind. The new poster has dropped the titular ship, and instead highlights Jack and Rose’s warm embrace—except it’s a little hard to focus on the star-crossed lovers when Kate Winslet’s confusing hairstyle steals the show. 

On one side of Winslet’s hair is a tightly coiled updo mirroring a style she wore frequently throughout the film; the other half of her hair cascades in loose waves. It’s a bizarre stylistic choice, and fans of the legendary film have questions.
