Kate has had quite a variety of 'looks' at awards ceremonies. Which do you like best? Here are four choices; voice your opinion by taking the poll!
#1 - 1996 Academy Awards; #2 - 1998 Golden Globes;
#3 - 1998 Academy Awards; #4 - 2001 Bafta

Great comment by a poll taker: ''Kate's face is so beautiful that she can wear her hair pulled back as at the BAFTA 2001. BUT, I love how her hair looked at the Oscars 98 with her long golden hair extensions, and she must have too since she had the same look on her wedding day!''
