Nicole Kidman has played her fair share of iconic roles. But there’s no denying the unique place that her turn as Alice in Stanley Kubrick’s 1999 erotic drama Eyes Wide Shut has in the collective imagination. In the film, Kidman served up her own brand of ‘90s beauty: Her strawberry blonde ringlets pulled back in a wispy knot, her porcelain complexion enhanced with rouged cheeks and a matte rose lip through Kubrick’s soft-focus lens.
Last night at the GQ Men of the Year Awards in London, the Oscar-winning actress channeled the pared back beauty of her iconic ‘90s character—but with a polished twist.
Her golden lengths pinned back in a low updo with a few strategic tendrils framing her face, she washed her gaze in metallic silver shadow, painted her lips a pretty dusty-pink, and finished the look with a moody Bordeaux manicure. Leave it to Kidman to underline the timelessness of a minimalist ’90s look, while making it feel chic and modern.
