If Kate Winslet keeps this up, we're going to have to give her some sort of Oscar for ridiculously gorgeous magazine covers.

On the heels of her transformation (turbans and all!) into Elizabeth Taylor for V, the all-natural British beauty is back as a Great Gatsby glamazon on the November cover of Harper's Bazaar U.K. (Watch your back, Daisy Buchanan.)

Photographed by Tom Munro, the actress swaps her St. John knits for a slinky silver halter dress intensified by smoky eyes and a wavy faux bob.

And if you think that's sultry, take a look at the accompanying fashion spread, which sees Winslet flashing a lace bra and rollicking in bed while wearing sheer black creations from Stella McCartney and Dolce & Gabbana.

Sheer delight: The actress smolders in revealing, lacy looks.

Though it's clear the Oscar winner is happy to tap into her newfound saucy single gal side, her recent divorce with Sam Mendes is never far from her mind.

"One thing I will say about me and Sam is that it’s fine, it’s really fine," she tells the magazine. "I’m not going to sh-t-fling, there’s no point in even going there. It is what it is ... We’re grown-ups at the end of the day, and however hard it’s been for me, it’s been equally hard for him. And we have a child together who we both love—and raising him together, jointly and without any conflict, is absolutely key. It’s the only way to do it, and I’ve really learnt that with [daughter] Mia.”

Winslet also seems to welcome the daunting challenge of life as a single mother.

“I feel that I’m just at the beginning of a new narrative, and it’s incredibly exciting," she says. "It’s complicated, I know, and uncertain—but it’s where life happens, between the cracks. It can be a painful process, but I truly hope that never stops for me.”
