Kate Winslet Wows at First Post-Baby Appearance

03/17/2014 at 03:00 PM ET

She’s officially back in black!

Three months after welcoming her third child, son Bear, actress Kate Winslet wowed while receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday.

The new mom kept her post-baby style simple yet chic for the ceremony — opting for a form-fitting black dress and coordinating Roger Vivier pumps, with her long blonde locks pulled back — which was held hours after California was hit with a 4.4 magnitude earthquake.

“I’m completely overwhelmed by the number of people that are here today,” Winslet, 38, told the audience, which included herΒ Revolutionary Road and Titanic costar Kathy Bates and Divergent costarΒ Shailene Woodley.

“I honestly had no idea this was going to be quite such a well-attended event especially after the earthquake this morning, which frightened me quite a lot actually. I made for a door frame with my breast pump in my hand.”

How about People mag, and other media outlets quit obsessing over women’s bodies for a change? This “post baby” crap is just ridiculous.

Kate looks great.

Bff Leo wasn’t present? I’m shocked.

It’s none of my business anyway.

She is amazing congrats Kate.

Hopefully she stays with this husband until she is too old for kids so there won’t be a 4th. kid when she marries husband no.4 and so on.

Kristen on

GAG… she may be a good actress but get your personal life together. 3 kids 3 different men…. YUK.

Breast pump And baby I hope πŸ™‚ I think kate is by far one of the best actresses today – she is funny and likeable and makes every movie better with her presence.

gadget- Nope, Bear Winslet (if you click where it says “new mom” it takes you to an article that says so). πŸ™‚

Kat- I’m more surprised her older children weren’t there (Bear’s absence is hardly a shock, considering he’s just over three months old!), since recieving a star seems to usually be a family event for celebs. Maybe they were with their dads or something. πŸ™‚

Tara on

her beauty is always pleasing to me
