Los Angeles: Kate Winslet`s new boyfriend, model Louis Dowler, is also doubling as her stylist and often shops for her clothes.

The British model, who started dating the Academy award winning actress after she split from husband Sam Mendes earlier this year, brought her a customised leather jacket as gift for her 35th birthday, reported People online.

"He said how much Kate loved her motorcycle but she only had masculine things to wear on it, so he wanted to treat her to something more feminine," said a source in the store.

The jacket, which retails for more than USD 1,000, was then hand delivered to Winslet in the US by Dowler.

The `Titanic` star`s relationship with Dowler has gone from strength to strength, with reports suggesting that the couple are contemplating marriage.

"As far as Kate is concerned, they could go all the way together, get married, have kids. She`s the happiest we`ve ever seen her, he really brings out a wonderful, carefree side to her that we haven`t seen for years," said a friend of the star.
