Cannes 2014: Nicole Kidman In Giorgio Armani Privé

Armani Nicole kidman Cannes 2014: Nicole Kidman In Giorgio Armani Privé %tag

Who: Nicole Kidman

Where: At the Opening Ceremony of the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival in France and the premiere of Olivier Dahan’s ‘Grace of Monaco’

Wearing: A strapless blue embroidered Giorgio Armani Privé lace bustier gown featuring crystal and pearl detailing adapted from the spring/summer 2014 collection, teamed with Harry Winston diamond bracelet and earrings

Verdict: Wow, Nicole Kidman really knows how to work the Cannes red carpet, last year she really shined as a jury member wearing creations by Dior, L’Wren Scott, Chanel, and Valentino, and with her film opening the 2014 festival she really did look like a star in this gorgeous, exquisely embellished Armani Privé gown.

Cannes is all about the OTT, bigger the better generally works here, and this gown is divine – the detailing is so intricate that it must have taken hours to make, and more than that it looks heavy and Nicole wears it with ease and pose.

Finishing off her look with diamonds from Harry Winston is always a great choice – that bracelet is beautiful but for me it is all about those diamond cluster earrings. I am so glad that she didn’t wear a necklace that would have been over-kill and would have distracted from the gorgeous sweetheart neckline and embellishments.

What do you think of Nicole Kidman’s Cannes red carpet look?

Editorial Loving: Nicole Kidman For Vogue Germany

Vogue Nicole Kidman 1 Editorial Loving: Nicole Kidman For Vogue Germany %tagI know that everyone has already moved on to the September issues but I have only just picked up the August cover of Vogue Germany, which was an homage to Nicole Kidman. The Australian actress didn’t just get two gorgeous covers, but also three incredible editorials inside that really shows off her model potential and various personalities.

We have the whimsical editorial shot by Camilla Akrans that shows Nicole wearing Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry Prorsum, Louis Vuitton and Valentino in a gorgeous outdoor setting. I just love how Camilla has shot this editorial, the soft lighting and the fuzziness to the images makes it romantic and magical and Nicole looks absolutely gorgeous styled by Nicole Knels and I love the loose curls in her hair.

Then we have the high-fashion editorial shot by Patrick Demarchelier, this is a powerful spread that unleashes Nicole’s inner femme fatale and I love that the majority of the editorial is in black and white as it really suits the dramatic pieces by Rodarte, Yohji Yamamoto, Alexander McQueen, Prada and Haider Ackermann – plus did you spot that incredible studded Chanel glove?

For the final spread, Nicole gets sexy with the help of her pal, designer and stylist L’Wren Scott, who styled her in a check shirt and bra, while she frolicked in a field in a gorgeous editorial shot by Bruce Webber.

I don’t think we see enough of Nicole Kidman in magazines and after seeing these gorgeous but very different editorials I don’t understand why. There has been a transformation of the past few years with Nicole – not just in her editorials but also her red carpet looks and I am loving seeing her be a little more daring with fashion – she is so stunning.

Which editorial do you like the best? I think Camilla Akrans gets my vote as I just love the lighting, the setting and how beautiful Nicole looks.

AW13 Campaign: Nicole Kidman For Jimmy Choo

AW13 Jimmy choo nicole 1 AW13 Campaign: Nicole Kidman For Jimmy Choo %tag

I have been waiting for these campaign shots since the news broke that Nicole Kidman was the new face of Jimmy Choo just before Cannes and they haven’t disappointed. Captured by photographer Mikael Jansson, Nicole is oozing sex appeal as a Hitchcock heroine, complete with a fab fringed bob.

Portrayed as the “seductive protagonist”, Nicole looks incredible in these autumn/winter 2013 campaign images for the luxury footwear brand, sporting sexy stilettos, caged booties, and thigh-high boots, as well as a gorgeous selection of bags.

As well as adoring Nicole in this campaign, I just love the sexy film noir feel to it, with the classic car, the sinister mist rolling in, and her dramatic femme fatale look. This has to be one of the most best Jimmy Choo campaigns I have seen.

The print images are striking, but the short film that accompanies the campaign is amazing, Nicole really does strong and glamorous to perfection.

Cannes Film Festival: Nicole Kidman Is Red Carpet Perfection

Nicole Kidman in Giorgio Armani for the closing ceremony of the 66th Cannes Film Festival

It was always going to be hard for Cannes Film Festival judge Nicole Kidman to top Diane Kruger’s run at last year’s event, but I have to give it to her she really has worked the red carpet to perfection and worn some unexpected looks that I have loved.

We started off with a gorgeous girlie Dior number, then the unexpected blue leaf-printed L’Wren Scott gown, and the Aussie actress completed her red carpet duties with a breathtaking Valentino, an on-trend monochrome Chanel dress, and finishing up her magnificent run with a white custom-made Giorgio Armani gown. Throughout the festival she really has wowed me.

What I have loved from Nicole’s red carpet looks in Cannes has to be her impeccable styling, sometimes I find I love her dress but not her hair, make-up and accessories, but it seems to have totally come together in France. From her side ponytail wore to the opening ceremony to her braided messy up-do teamed with her black and white Chanel resort gown to her elegant up-do worn with her Valentino Oscar worthy gown – I have loved that she thought about her hair.

Deciding on my best Nicole look has been hard, the floral embroidered Dior was cute, I was blown away by her frothy Valentino spring couture gown, and I loved her bright strapless L’Wren Scott dress, but I think she saved the best till last with this custom-made white silk tapered bustier Giorgio Armani gown featuring a  and v-neckline and a gold Swarovski crystal bow. This dress is simply divine.

I am sad to say bye to Cannes for another year – but excited to see who will be the red carpet star of next year’s festival.

Which of Nicole’s Cannes looks is your favourite?

Cannes Film Festival: Nicole Kidman In Dior Couture

Cannes Nicole kidman dior Cannes Film Festival: Nicole Kidman In Dior Couture %tag
Who: Actress Nicole Kidman

Where: At the Opening Night of The 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival for the Great Gatsby Cannes Film Festival premiere held at the Theatre Lumiere

Wearing: A strapless floral embroidered Christian Dior Couture gown from the spring 2013 collection, teamed with coral pointed Dior heels and diamond stud earrings

Verdict: Wow, I can’t remember seeing Nicole Kidman looking so girlie and fresh before but this strapless floral beaded beauty shows her embracing her inner Grace Kelly and I love it. The dress itself really plays off the 1950s silhouette but adds a modern twist with the intricate beading work and the vibrant colours.

When Nicole was announced as the face of Jimmy Choo just before Cannes I was expecting a lot of heel-flattering dresses, however this look isn’t complemented by Jimmy Choo heels but Dior ones, but either way I love the pop of coral it works really well.

Finishing up her look is a strange quiff side ponytail, simple-yet-elegant diamond earrings and gorgeous fuchsia pink lips.

For me Nicole was easily one of the best dressed on the red carpet on Day 1 at Cannes.

SAG Awards: Nicole Kidman In Vivienne Westwood

nicole kidman sag awards SAG Awards: Nicole Kidman In Vivienne Westwood %tagWho: Nicole Kidman

Where: At the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A midnight blue Vivienne Westwood Couture ‘Marlene’ column gown covered in floral appliqués, a sheer neckline and a thigh-high split, teamed with Fred Leighton jewellery and black strappy heels

Verdict: Wow, Nicole Kidman keeps on surprising me with her red carpet looks, at the Golden Globes I loved her Alexander McQueen and I think I prefer this midnight blue Vivienne Westwood just because of how sexy it is.

I love the exquisite beaded embroidery, the sheer panelling, and then the thigh-high split – Nicole really knows how to wear a column dress and this is the best I have seen her in a while.

However, as much as I love her gown, jewels, and choice of heels, I would have loved her to have done more with her hair, I like it sleek straight but I don’t love it I wish she had put it up and showed off the neckline of this dress more.

What do you think of Nicole’s look?

Golden Globes 2013: Nicole Kidman In Alexander McQueen

Nicole kidman mcqueen Golden Globes 2013: Nicole Kidman In Alexander McQueen %tag

Who: Nicole Kidman

Where: At the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: A black crepe Alexander McQueen gown with gold bee embroidery to the neckline and lace panels to the waist from the spring/summer 2013 collection, teamed with Fred Leighton jewellery, and Manolo Blahnik heels

Verdict: This is a gorgeous gown, which at first I thought was a little to edgy for Nicole Kidman, and then I remembered how incredible she used to be on the red carpet and I was excited to see her working her amazing figure.

The mesh panel to the middle of the dress makes Nicole taller and slimmer, as if she needed any help, and teamed with the metal embellishments it has a regal vibe to it that actually suits her.

What do you think – is the McQueen gown to edgy for her?
