Kate Winslet is the new face of St. John.

Kate Winslet is ready for her close-up.

The Oscar-winning actress will be the face of St. John's Fall 2011 campaign, WWD reports.

Expected to be shooting the campaign with photographer Craig McDean in New Jersey on April 27, the British beauty succeeds past spokesmodels Kelly Gray, Liya Kebede, Gisele Bündchen, Angelina Jolie, and Karen Elson, who is the brand's most recent face.

While Winslet—who currently serves as a brand ambassador for Lancôme—scores another plum campaign gig, St. John will no doubt enjoy the benefits of having a high-profile movie star back on its books.

As to whether her ads will mimic Elson's bold and energetic feel or Jolie's glamorous black-and-white aesthetic, well, we'll just have to wait and see.
