Nicole Kidman’s Best Red-Carpet Looks of the Year

 

Is there anyone who can’t recall the splendid moment at the 1997 Oscars whenNicole Kidman stepped out in a John Galliano for Christian Dior chartreuse dress? The Academy Award–winning actress and August cover star was already renowned on the red carpet for her classic beauty, poise, and risk-taking, but that look solidified the actress’s standing as one of Hollywood’s fashion elite.

Since then, she remains in the best dressed ranks, wearing stunners from Balenciaga,Prada, and Vivienne Westwood amongst others; when she married country singerKeith Urban, it was in a dress by Nicolas Ghesquière for Balenciaga. And this year has thus far introduced a new side of Kidman’s style, as she brings a distinctive and edgy flair to typically fancy frocks.

 

When Kidman glides on the red carpet, everyone watches, and at this year’sOscars, Kidman radiated statement-making glamour in a chromatic, strapless dress from Nicolas Ghesquière for Louis Vuitton. Her Angelina Jolie Pitt–esque leg treatment didn’t feel outré, but rather necessary, given the wow factor of the dress. Similarly, at the Grammy Awards, Kidman opted for a short and flirtyMugler dress, keeping her shoes similarly playful with multiple straps across the vamp. However, her 2015 answer to that 1997 Oscars dress? A Valentino Sala Bianca Couture creation that she sported to the Berlin premiere of Queen of the Desert. Regal but modern, Kidman made the neo-Elizabethian dress feel fresh via simple, elegant hair, and minimal jewelry.
