Nicole Kidman in L.A.

Posted on January 27, 2012

Hi Nicole!

Nicole Kidman leaves Joan’s on Third in Los Angeles.

Look at you all smiley and glowing! Your blouse is a little on the precious side and that is some serious Mrs. Urban country-western hair going on up top, but overall, we think you look pretty cute and chic here. Let’s talk about your tote:


 Salvatore Ferragamo Leather Tote Bag



A chic classic, we say. But Nicole, it’s not about us this time. Brace yourself dear, because not only are the commenters revolting, but they’re also getting a chance to have their say.


Salvatore Ferragamo Leather Tote: YEA or NAY?

    Oooooh Yes please!  A nice chocolatey brown though for preference

    As a tote…yea.  As a purse…nay.

      Much clearer version of what I was going to say. I refuse to carry this shit until I have children who are obsessed with figure skating or somesuch bulky thing.

  • Sobaika Mirza

    YES! It looks very luxe and great for everyday use.

    Love the bag, but does she have a brick in it?

  • Anonymous

    It’s a nice bag, but not one I would use.  I can’t stand totes, and gotta have something that closes across the top.  Unlike Ms. Urban, I don’t have private security to watch me all the time. :)

  • Brian @ PWYJudges

    A total YAY! Love the gold detailing.

  • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

    YES! as a tote.  I can’t even deal with an oversized purse…what the hell do you need?   She could have stuffed that leather jacket in there with room leftover.

  • Judy S

    I am not revolting. Unless you are really easily revolted. But anyway, I agree, classic and functional–yea, yea, yea.

  • MilaXX

    Hell yea! I want that bag.

  • Urban Gypsy aka Tess

    Wow. $1950 for that bag, I need to find the Ferragamo bags someone gave me a hundred years ago. They may or may not have fallen off a truck, but my memory is notoriously lousy.

    Meh. Maybe I’d like it better in another color.

      Right. That color might work for Mz Redhead Kidman, but for this Black Irish lady, I need COLOR!
      But for her? In.

    Not for me, but definitely a classy bag. I have always loved her (she is perhaps the irrational love counterpart to my irrational Scarlett Johannsen hate). and it’s nice to see her looking so happy. Yea, on someone else’s arm.

    Yeah, that’s a great tote.

    I want this bag.  Right now.

    When I was in 7th grade, one day Mary, the girl in my group who got teased the most (I was 2nd in line) got fed up with the rest of us and said, “I’m revolting!”  I just smiled.

    The piping on the side should be that darker tan. Then it’d be perfect.

      I completely agree with you.

    Yea, I am not a fan of big handbags personally, but this is nice, elegant & simple (which is my style)

    I LIKE her hair with more volume…country hair or not.  She usually wears it so over flat ironed, it makes her look harsh.

    When you have small kids, purse-totes are almost required.

    This is actually a photo from the set where she plays a suburban Texan mother who has decided to kill her daughter’s cheerleading rival and lesbian lover… Right?

    Her pants are so shiny!! I like. The bag is my favorite part of the outfit though. *drool*

    I like this but the color is a bit too blah for me. Maybe a little deeper, richer color or maybe even something more vivid and I’d be all over it. Very chic and luxe.

    she’s working some serious loretta! love the bag!

    Mostly I love her slacks, they’re really flattering.

    • Sara L.

      Yep, I want those slacks. And her figure to fit in them.

    I must be an incredibly bitchy and bitter kitten today, because all I can see is an enormous amount of money and a month’s mortgage. Usually such things don’t bug me, so it must not be pretty enough for me to overlook the price. Therefore, nay.

      Funny, I love to look at clothes, but when I think of the amount wealthy people pay for them, I choke. I have friends who worked hard all their lives and may lose their homes now. Not Kidman’s fault, just the fault of society that prizes people who can act and sports figures.

    Owwww for my left shoulder. I couldn’t carry a bag that big except to to go away for the weekend.

    Nay. It’s too old-lady-styles. In fact, her hair, blouse, pants, shoes are all old-lady-styles. Alexander Wang has a similar tote but it’s much more youthful (and cheaper).

      Neigh. But no one over the age of 10 ought to wear that blouse, let along an old lady.

    Nicole:  Nice pants, bad blouse.

    Bag:  Lovely bag, ridiculous price tag.  If I had an extra $2000 lying around, I’d be on a plane to Paris or Rome or Buenos Aires.

    • accidental housewife

      I’d be on the same plane, and I’d be carrying my wonderful one-of-a-kind tote/handbag made by a friend of mine. I don’t know how much it cost, because it was a present from my husband, but I guarantee it’s not even in the vicinity of $2000.

  • Anonymous

    The color shown here is too drab for me.  I loathe taupe and other grey-brown shades until you get much darker, like espresso-y hues.  I do like the shape and details.  I have no need for a tote like this, because it looks like the weight of the bag, when added to the contents, would be rough on my middle-aged shoulders.  So I’ll bow to the fashion of the time and give it a Yea.  But I’m not giving exclamation points.

    That’s not a purse; it’s luggage.

    Luggage so big, it won’t fit under the seat in front of you. The stewardess will make you stow that thing in the overhead bin.

    • Anonymous

      Right.  If I tried to carry that on my short frame the bag would be sitting on the ground.  It looks huge on Nicole who is probably over 6′ in those heels.  I’m praying for the return of smaller bags.  

    • Anonymous

      Well, it LOOKs large. The Ferragamo link claims it’s 12.5″ x 12.5″ x 6.5″

  • Susan Crawford

    As a lifelong tote bag addict, I’m ready to include this one in my collection. Might go for it in a deeper brown or even a white for summer. YEA to the tote!

    Nicole does look good, doesn’t she? I love the pants and think she looks so much better with that touseled hair than with some of the more severe styles she has worn. The blouse is a little too much for me – never been much for a ruffly bib-front. And with those pants, a great Lauren Bacall-ish camp shirt in a heavy rayon that would drape and flow a little would be spectacular.

  • Democracy Diva

    Nay on Nicole, yay on the purse.

    You tackle her, I’ll grab the bag and run.

    I love totes, and I carry my laptop in them when I travel. They do double duty as a laptop carrier and day bag that way. YEA

  • Sara__B

    Yea to the bag. If I had need of a tote bag, I’d love to have one as understated, elegant, and beautifully made as this one.
    Nay to her hairstyle. Big on top, thin and stringy on the bottom. She could use a haircut.

  • Katie Sypher

    Oops. Yea!

  • Anonymous

    YEA but unfortunately I will have to settle for a knockoff.

  • Anonymous

    Nay.  Everything you carry is lumped in the bottom in these kinds of bags.  Makes an unorganized mess.  Altho’, Ms. Kidman probably hires an Anti Mess Assistant who can sort it all out for her.

  • aimee_parrott

    I’d prefer it in a different color, but YEA.  it’s a nice-looking bag.  I hate that blouse of hers, though.

  • Anonymous

    Eh, not impressed.  I agree, a color would help a lot.

  • Anonymous

    It’s OK, no nicer or worse than bags I can get at TJ Maxx for $89. If you want to see a bag that is designed, check out Sophie Dilgard’s crocheted bags!! Wowza!!

    And that blouse – I hate when you can see skin through blouses. Seems tacky. But it is nice to see her smiling and so relaxed looking. She usually looks wound up tight as a string!!

  • Cassie

    Is she pregnant? Because that’s the only way I will accept that blouse and those pants. It is nice to see her smiling for a change, though.

    The bag is nice enough, but it’s just too gigantic. It looks luggage-like on Nicole, who is like eleven feet tall, so I can’t imagine how ridiculous it would look on a woman of average height.

    I love Joans on Third. I almost always stop there for snacks and a cupcake when I pass through Hell-A

  • Jennifer Alderman

    Love the bag! Also, her hair is so big because it’s full of secrets. 

  • Anonymous


    It’s large, it’s leather, it’s of subdued pattern and does not shout its maker’s name. I also like the one zip & 2 open compartments construction. (Exactly what my current bag has) The handles are long enough that one could sling it over a shoulder if one had to.

    If it had those little metal buttons/feet on the bottom (I can’t tell) so that one could imagine that one was protecting 2K worth of leather from whatever is actually on the floor, I’d say it was the perfect tote.

    Not my most favorite color ever, but that I’ll forgive if someone kindly gifts me with one.

    i think YEA!

  • Lauren Maier

    Can one say “eh” in a “yea” or “nay” post?  It’s very luxe and nice but it’d not what I’d want on my arm.  But still, it is lovely, so YEA.  

    Thank god we’re voting on the tote, it looks like she’s got a bib on her blouse.

  • foodycatAlicia

    OH GOD. I totally forgot about Nicole Kidman when I was thinking about my celebrity hate list. I dislike her even more than Cameron Diaz! Nice bag though.

  • Anonymous

    love the tote, hate the blouse.  Although I must say that a similarly-cut blouse looks just as terrible on me, so now I know for sure:  it’s not the body, it’s the blouse!  If Nicole can’t look good in it, it is just not a good look for probably just about anybody.

    YEA but my version would end up weighing 30 lbs and would ultimately dislocate a shoulder or wrist. But I would look great!

      It makes NO sense to carry a big bag & not use it to carry all that stuff which makes a 10-16 hour day away from home do-able. Reading material, work, snacks, in a pinch water bottle and/or coffee travel mug, laptop on occasion . . . 

      I’m old enough that I’m sure I’ll be adopting the little wheeled case with the collapsible handle, soon – but so far the body holds up and until that changes I’m sticking with the suitcase purse.

      Besides, someday I may be able to knock the cr#p out of somebody with it, just like in the cartoons!

  • Dina dV

    FOOL!  Never wear pants like that to Joan’s.  You’ll just bust a button after eating all their delicious cupcakes.  Or maybe that’s just me.

    I think she’s gorgeous and I’m glad she’s back to red hair, but color would have worked a little better.  Gray and white on such a pale woman just makes her look like a hologram.

  • Call me Bee

    Yea–a thousand times yea.  I realy like her trousers here, too.  A chic city look. 

  • accidental housewife

    Love the pants, hate the blouse, like the tote, but not in that awful putty color and not at that price. I can’t decide on her hair. It’s messy, but I like messy hair. Someone above said Nicole needs a haircut. I think that’s the problem. If this were an IN or OUT post, I’d give her an IN.

  • butter nut

    ferragamo bags are always such perfection.

  • marilyn

    Beautiful bag-In. Her-Out..  She should have dressed up more to go shopping.  The hair and blouse are country.  The bag is chic Italian.  I do not like thetrend of those fashion types to wear white blouses with whatever.  The blouses are not tucked in, and I assume it is to cover up a protruding tummy.  Martha Stewart and Ina Garten wear these blouses because they are trying to be casual, and are doing things in the kitchen.   Rosie O’DOnnell wears them too.  I assume she is just not very inerested in clothes in general.  During the ’60’s the white blouse was part of every school girl’s wardrobe, particularly the ones who had to wear school uniforms.   If Nikky is pregnant again, then this is fine. If she is not, then she might try to dress up a little more when she goes out for errands because people (like us) are watching her.   

    By the way, that blouse with ruffles would have been considered dressy.  I don’t know what it is now.

    • foodycatAlicia

      And that, right there, is why I am so glad that I am never likely to be in the public eye! I feel like anyone who puts on heels has already made above and beyond effort for going shopping.

    As a design, I guess it’s OK, although it doesn’t strike me as innovative or even notable.  I’d never use anything like that, it’s too big.  Someone with little ruffles on her cotton blouse should carry something smaller, methinks.

    Tote is fantastic!  Trousers look good.  Her hair looks better than it has in ages.  But WHAT IS UP with that blouse?!

    This is downright simple for her. The blouse is a little cutesy, but not egregiously so. For a simple day of running around on errands, or whatever it is impossibly rich movie stars do all day, she looks nice.
