During the occasion, Kidman arrived to the show in a pair of Balenciaga’s signature Knife pumps. The Oscar-winning actress’ $975 style featured a pointed-toe silhouette with exaggerated counters, crafted from smooth, matte black spandex for a touch of modern flair.

Kidman’s pumps were finished with 4.33-inch stiletto heels, bringing her look a slick finish. The style also smoothly streamlined the star’s attire for the occasion: a black double-breasted coat dress with long sleeves and a curved neckline, layered atop sheer black tights for a formal edge.
