With every event Nicole Kidman attends, she aces the perfect Hollywood outfit. Turns out, it's not a new thing — she's knocked everyone off their feet for quite a while when it comes to her fashion.
In February 2008, the Moulin Rouge! actress traveled to Tokyo, Japan to attend a photo call for her then-new film The Golden Compass. When she arrived for the red carpet, she shined in a unique black dress, which featured a number of textured materials that gave Nicole an unexpected edge. The bottom of the frock was comprised of a silky skirt that had tulle on top of it. It also had a floral lace design that went across the midriff and ventured down the seams of the A-like silhouette.
The highlight of the dress was the ensemble's bodice that showed off a myriad of striking yet playful couture elements. A ruched bralette-style front popped against a see-through piece overlaying from the neckline to the waist. Along with a different kind of lace, the lower half of the top appeared akin to a spider-web with its sheer paneling. What's more, a structured fringed shoulders added an extra touch, helping Nicole made a rock and roll outfit look chic for a movie premiere.
To offset the monochromatic look, Nicole kept the rest of the outfit simple. The Being the Ricardos star paired the dress with black kitten heels with bows at the toes. She also wore a sparkling diamond bracelet and stud earrings. Nicole styled her blonde hair into a side-swept curly ponytail. The Australian native then tied it all together with black eyeliner and a muted plum lipstick for makeup.
As Nicole somehow always makes red carpet attire feel effortless, there has to be a method to pulling off the perfect look. When speaking to Vanity Fair in June 2017, she revealed a specific detail she looks out for while trying out looks.
"The only one that I consider is to feel relaxed," she told the outlet. "I also want to be able to dance. That’s an important rule for a dress — to be able to dance. At least wiggle!"
With that piece of advice, it makes us want to bust a move as well.
