Pairs Division: Kidman and Urban

Posted on July 14, 2011

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban attended the Cinema Society screening of Snow Flower And The Secret Fan in New York City, forcing us to form opinions about their outfits.

Nicole Kidman wears an Elie Saab dress, Jimmy Choo shoes, a L’Wren Scott clutch, and Cathy Waterman jewelry.

We always recognize that carpet whenever we look at celebrity pictures. They’re at the Tribeca Grand Hotel, which is where Bravo used to hold finale parties for Project Runway and Shear Genius back in the day. Every time we see that distinctive pattern, we immediately go all sentimental blogger. “Awww, that’s where we met Tim Gunn for the first time!” Misty, water-colored memories.

Elie Saab Resort 2012 Collection/Model: Juju Ivanyuk (NATHALIE)

HE: Needs a haircut so bad we can’t even look at him. Seriously, who thinks that frames his face well? Buddy, you’re wife’s in heels and a tight dress; the least you could have done was get your shirt collar starched, wear a belt, and not drool on your lapel. Since you failed at all three, you get … Score: 3/10. We’re feeling unforgiving this morning and that lapel stain set us off.

SHE: Looks damn fine. We’re on record as not liking the so-called “naked shoe,” but she’s got nice feet and it’s hot in New York right now, so she pulls that off. Extra kudos for not matching the clutch to the shoes. The dress is great. The little side-peplums wouldn’t work on 95% of women, but Nicole’s got a movie star bod and such things make no difference to her. Love the neckline and the little cap sleeves. Hair’s a bit too long and the lips match the dress exactly, but these are minor quibbles.  Score: 8.5/10.

Combined Score: 5.75/10. Nicole, you need to fire that husband of yours.

      Her boobs look like they are trying to burst out of that dress.

        Yeah, I’m not really a fan of those necklines that hit mid-breast like that and make it look like everything’s barely contained. It looks okay on the model because she’s not all pushed up and over.

        That said, NK does look great, overall.

      He’s almost always a mess, especially when standing next to her.  That ahir is just sooooo awful, Billy Ray Cyrus even got rid of that shaggy, bad highlights do.  YUK!!

      I would go with a 9 for Nicole here.  That dress is perfect on her, the shoes work fantastic and her hair looks better than a lot of other recent outings.

      It looks like he is going for the “win” in the Billy Ray Cyrus look alike contest.   The lapel stain.. I didn’t notice it until you pointed it out.. How did it get there?   An odd raindrop?   How does someone drink and spill on a lapel?  Was it a bump in the limo ride while sipping a hot beverage?   Hmmm…

      I wish that she would stand up straight. She just needs to embrace the fact that she is taller than her husband that that is ok.

        Yes, exactly!  She is an amazingly beautiful woman who seems to be insecure about her appearance (hence the slouching & botox).  I would love to have that gene pool, and I suspect I’m not alone.  She does look incredible here – best she’s looked in a while, and she nearly always looks great.

        I remember in the early ’00s when Keith first hit it big in country music and I thought he was The Hottest Thing Ever.  But he hasn’t aged well at ALL (I think all the drugs and hard drinking caught up with him) and that hair is NOT helping.

      Damn, girl, you look HOT! Thank god she went back to red and stopped botoxing her life away. Also: “the least you could have done was . . . not drool on your lapel.” Hadn’t noticed the stain till then and almost spit out my coffee laughing. Love you guys.

      I’ve seen his hairdo on several of the more “metrosexual” country music singers.  It’s the unholy mix of a Justin Bieber shag & a Mullet.

      That STAIN on his collar is just crazy!! Who goes out like that???  He’s on a red carpet.  Nicole must be so happy to finally have a real man who will have sex with her and give her children that she is completely blind to every fault.

      You guys were nice enough not to comment on his facial hair, but I’m not.  And, look, my husband has a beard and mustache, and I like it, so I’m not against facial hair, per se.  But, his is scruffy and not well-maintained at all.  Is he growing it out?  Why the neck hair, then?  And the “soul patch” below his mouth?  Yuck, yuck, yuck.  Just because you have nice features, Keith Urban, doesn’t give you carte blanche to mail it in at celebrity events.  Your wife does work in this film business, you know.

      While I’m not defending the length of Keith’s hair by any means, the worst aspect of his hair is it being flat-ironed.  Flat ironed hair just does not look good on a man!

      Wow, I was going to say he looks fine, other than the hair.  Music stars don’t need to wear belts or ties.  But then I saw the stain.  Really?!  How can you NOT notice the stain!  Even “normal” people don’t go out with stains on their clothes.  Nicole looks good.  The bright red lipstick is a bit much and I can see that knocking her score down a skosh.

      You know, considering the fact that these Hollywood/Music Industry types can afford the services of the world’s very best hair people, I find it unacceptable that most of them walk around with such disasters on top of their heads. I mean, Keith is not a bad looking guy. I refuse to believe that he doesn’t see that he could look so much better with a good cut. Nicole has a bird’s-eye view of that thing; can’t she talk to him about it? Gently explain to him that there’s a problem that needs to be addressed?

      Anyway, she looks great in that dress. He looks like he took a nap on the couch in those clothes.

    • Terence Ng

      Is there a more formal term for that style of dress? I remember first seeing it in the Matrix when Minica Belluci’s character has a dress with peploms made out of latex. For some reason, I thought there was a more distinct term for that style?

      Thank God she got rid of that ‘hair’ (and I use that word under advisement) that she was wearing when she met Bill & Cathy in California the other night. She looks great like;she should wear it like this all the time.

      That dress looks like it was made for her. She should wear it every day. Shopping. Kid’s birthday parties. Gardening.

    • Sara__B

      My 1959 Barbie doll has a dress almost exactly like that, but with pockets instead of peplums, and a more modest, classy neckline. A bit too boob-tacular for my tastes, but she still looks great. 8.0.

      He’s too sloppy for words. 3.0 is too generous.

      Cosign both scores. I can forgive him not wearing a tie & I might even be willing to overlook the fact that he needs a haircut, but a RC with a stain on the label?! Really? I. Take that back. He deserves a 2/10. Clean your jacket & wear a belt. Nicole is fine. Dress looks a hair tight across the hips but minor quibble. 8.5/10

      She has a little tummy and the dress seems to pull across it, but she really does look good here. I like the minimal shoes but maybe a different color would have been better so she wouldn’t look like she’s barefoot and standing on her tiptoes. He looks like a slob as usual.

      I guess it’s just me, but that dress looks too tight, both in the boob area and around her middle. It’s pretty but I’m having trouble breathing just looking at her.

        It’s not just you — I think she would’ve looked good if the dress fit her, but it doesn’t, so she doesn’t, to my eyes.  The dress is just plain too small, IMHO.

      Nicole would enhance her attractiveness if she’d stand up straight. I know she’s tall and also in heels and also has a short husband, but slouching to disguise some of her (and his) height just doesn’t do her justice.

    • Anonymous

      She looks great and she knows it.  Your points never make sense to me.  A man in an ordinary but unobjectionable suit gets 9. Couldn’t a really great looking woman get a 9 or even a 10 now and then?

      I am glad Keith Urban makes her happy, but he does indeed need a haircut.

      Her boobs are begging for freedom, that dress is too tight up there. Hate the ruffles, and something about her hair makes me mad. I just hate her hair this year. Why is that? Someone figure it out for me.

      I agree with the boobs. Dress is too tight across her chest. Otherwise, she looks gorgeous, first picture I have liked of her in years. And she doesn’t wear those 6 inch heels everyone else is sporting?? Not that she needs them, but she actually looks comfortable in her shoes.

      This is the best she’s looked in a while. Perfect color. I wish her hair wasn’t obscuring the fabulous neckline. Or breastline, perhaps we should call it. Keith looks like a carpet stain next to her. She deserves better.

      Love the shoes and the dress!  She looks pretty, although that bodice could have used some expert fitting because it’s bisecting her breasts horizontally.  Just a little too tight there.

      As for him, he’s clearly taken a page from Tom Cruise’s fashion book, “Why It’s OK to Look Like a Complete Dirtbag When Accompanying Your Well-dressed Wife to a Premier.”  You were generous in giving him a 3.5  I give him a -2.  Disgusting.

      Really they *always* look something like this. I swear I’ve seen him in that exact suit & shirt.

      I can’t ding him too hard for the stain. I might have happened after leaving home & what was he to do? Taking off the jacket would have been just as bad. Maybe worse if he’s an underarm sweat-er. The hair is country & he makes his money being a country singer, and he’s maybe 5 years yet away from being Entirely Too Old for it. Again, can’t ding him too hard. -2 for hair & lapel.  However, -1 for unbuttoning one button too many for someone accompanying a woman so dressed, and -2 for no belt because I *hate* a suit without a belt unless it’s been removed with the tie & the ladies’ shoes are kicked off because we’re all relaxing *after* the big event. So, we’re up to 5/10 for him, plus he gets .5 back for looking so happy in the shot where he’s hanging back and looking at her getting her solo snaps. 5.5/10

      She’s just fine, no bottle rockets so she starts 9/10, -.5 for the tit-shelf boob presentation and -.5 for not standing up with her shoulders back: you look great, woman so show off those boobs you’re thrusting up through the neckline of the dress for all to admire! 8/10.

      6.75 overall and ma’am, your countrified escort is dragging you down.

      Yay, she looks great here. I don’t know why but I always find myself rooting for her. I agree with the minor quibbles…cut the hair, the lips are matchy matchy. But still, she looks fab. I don’t understand the comments regarding lack of polished toes. While I prefer painted toes myself I think it’s all good as long as the feet are pedicured, and Nicoles’ obviously are, then what’s the problem? Oh, and it’s nice to see a more natural smile on the ol’ girl. Looking good. 9/10

      He needs a good smack on the head. 5/10

      The dress needs to be half a size larger. She should have gone up a size because of the overflowing titscrepancy and the pulling across the hips, then had it tailored to fit. The shoes are perfect; IMO, the best use of a nude shoe is with a red dress (black always looks too harsh, white….can’t even go there). He always looks sleazy.

      That ‘do is so unattractive on him. He has a nicely shaped face and then ruins it with those hair curtains.
