Kate is a popular name right now in the celebrity world — besides Winslet, Bosworth, Hudson, Beckinsale and Holmes, there are a host of others. Two of them have recently arrived Stateside from across the pond: Kate Nash and Kate Walsh, both English singer-songwriters who will be performing in New York this month. To make things more confusing, one of Walsh's songs was featured on the "Grey's Anatomy" episode that led into the "Private Practice" spin-off—starring the other Kate Walsh. To keep things straight, here's WWD's guide to everything Kate.
