The Grammy Awards are notorious for being a bit of a hit-and-miss red carpet, mainly because singers it seems like sheer, cut-outs, and generally plunging, anything for a little attention. For most it doesn’t work, it is generally so bad you have to laugh, but as I don’t like to focus on the negative, lets rejoice in the fact that there were a handful of beauties that pulled off amazing looks. Here are my best dressed ladies from the 2015 Grammy Awards:
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?
I 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.

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.
