Kate Winslet looks chic in a grey gown at Avatar: The Way Of Water world premiere

Kate Winslet recycled a gown she first wore seven years ago as she stepped out at the Avatar: The Way Of Water world premiere on Tuesday evening in London.

The actress, 47, who plays Ronal in the picture, looked just as glamorous as when she first wore the dress as she arrived at the Odeon Luxe in London’s Leicester Square.

She stunned in the grey gown, featuring dazzling silver embellishments along the neckline, as she celebrated both the return of the Avatar franchise and her glitzy wardrobe piece.

Throwback: Kate is pictured in the same gown back in 2015

Kate was first seen wearing the figure-hugging Badgley Mischka number in 2015 at the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of her film The Dressmaker.

She has previously described splashing money on new red carpet looks as a ‘waste’ of money and vowed to sustainably re-wear her outfits.

In 2020, she shared her plans to recycle her old outfits, saying she would have them ‘let out’ to ‘squeeze my hot-and-bothered mum-on-the-school-run body’ into them. 

‘To make something that’s only going to be worn once… I’ve already decided I’m doing repeat dresses,’ she told Vanity Fair in 2020.

‘Everything will have to be let out, but whatever.’

‘I don’t like having to squeeze my hot-and-bothered mum-on-the-school-run body randomly into a red carpet dress that I’m never going to wear again,’ she added.

And Kate stayed true to her word at Tuesday’s Avatar premiere as she once again wowed onlookers in her glittering Badgley Mischka gown.

She accessorised with a pair of sparkly drop earrings and posed up a storm for photographers with her hands on her hips.

The guests all flocked to the venue to celebrate the much-anticipated Avatar sequel, while the first movie is reportedly the highest-grossing movie of all time.

The second movie, titled Avatar 2: The Way of Water, has brought back much of the original cast including Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldaña, Sigourney and Stephen Lang but also added Kate Winslet and Vin Diesel.

‘Jake Sully lives with his newfound family formed on the planet of Pandora,’ according to the movie’s IMDb page.

‘Once a familiar threat returns to finish what was previously started, Jake must work with Neytiri and the army of the Na’vi race to protect their planet.’

The trailer for Avatar: The Way of Water was released just a month before the film is set for release on December 16.

The trailer begins with members of the Na’vi sitting on the backs of ikrans, flying pterodactyl like beings that take them over a gorgeous waterfall. 

Sam Worthington’s Jake Sully and Zoe Saldaña’s Neytiri take their children to another tribe seeking safe harbor as huge mechanical suits, operated by humans, trample through a forest. 

Big plans: Just weeks ahead of Avatar's 2 scheduled release, Sam Worthington revealed they have already started filming Avatar 3 and a few scenes of Avatar 4

‘Treat them as our brothers and sisters,’ a leader of this other tribe insists as some individuals swim through crystal clear water. 

‘Teach them our ways,’ the voice continues while a young voice calls one of Sully’s children ‘forest boy.’

One then learns to ride a giants, underwater eel. It emulates the scene from the first movie when Sam Worthington’s character is taught to ride an ikran. 

Titles cut into scenes of picturesque landscapes refer to the film as ‘The motion picture event of a generation.’

The Na’vi are then put in a perilous situation with humans burning their lands with huge flamethrowers, destroying nearly everything in their paths.

Just weeks ahead of Avatar’s 2 scheduled release, Sam Worthington revealed they have already started filming Avatar 3 and a few scenes of Avatar 4.

The Australian actor, 46, returns in the sequel to 2009’s Avatar as Jake Sully, who has a new family of his own on Pandora.

Avatar: The Way of Water will lead into Avatar 3, currently expected to hit theatres on December 20, 2024.

And Sam revealed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon that between 80 per cent and 90 per cent of Avatar 3 has already been filmed.

‘We’ve filmed about 80%, 90% of three. We’re still owing some scenes,’ Sam said, which brought a few gasps from those in the crowd.

He also added that there were some scenes already filmed for Avatar 4, simply because they involved kids that would be too old if they waited.

‘And in Four we did a few scenes because the kids were ageing out, so we have to do it before they get a bit older,’ he explained.

He added that there is also a fifth film in the works, ‘if we’re lucky enough to get it,’ adding: ‘We’re not arrogant enough to assume it’s going to connect.’

It comes after James revealed that the much-anticipated second Avatar film was ‘very f***ing expensive’ to shoot.

Last month, the esteemed director did not give an exact number of how much it cost, but did refer to it as ‘the worst business case in movie history’. 

He told GQ: ‘You have to be the third or fourth highest-grossing film in history. That’s your threshold. That’s your break even.’ 

The first Avatar movie is reportedly the highest-grossing movie of all time, according to Variety.
