Nicole Kidman in Cannes

Posted on May 23, 2012

Miss Nicole takes a stroll and reminds everyone: “Why, yes, bitches. I AM an internationally famous movie star, thank you for asking.”


Nicole Kidman sporting a new hairstyle while arriving at Nice Airport to attend the the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival.

That’s how you do it, girlstars. Nicole knows how to present a striking image without coming across too showy or attention-seeking. She looks fabulously chic but also appropriately modest, which is quite a feat, considering her bra is in full view.

  • I might love those bangs on her. And yes, she does look terribly chic even with her bra showing. Impressive.

  • Scarlet39

    Is she wearing a wig?

    •  Mmmmmm could be. Its exactly the style of wig that’s easy to get away with. No visible line of demarcation to trip you up.

    • Sobaika

      There have been rumors for a long time that she uses wigs regularly because her real hair is pretty fragile.

      • It’s so fragile that her hairline started receding after years of bleaching it.

    • fringebenefit

      Could catch, Scarlet. I do think you’re right! In any case, she looks quite stunning…wig and all.

    • butter nut

      i was just about to ask the same thing.  the color is so unnatural & the cut is so perfect.  if it’s real, she had it coiffed just before she walked out the door.

  • Anathema_Device

    Very cute, but leggings are not pants, Nicole. Not even for you.

    • ToothCake

       I think those are jeans…or jeggings?

    • Sobaika

      I don’t think they’re exactly leggings, they have pockets. More likely one of those stretch hybrid denim things.

      At any rate, I’m of the opinion that leggings can be worn when used correctly (one’s bum is covered by a longer top, it’s not so tight that it’s sheered out on one’s jiggly bits, etc.) She’s looking pretty flawless.

      • RebeccaKW

         I agree on the leggings thing.  I have a pair that I wear with a short dress.  The ones I hate are people who wear them with a short tshirt and I can tell what color the undies are b/c they are stretched so tight the ass is sheer.  I always want to take a picture and then show it to the girl.  ‘Do you realize what you look like from behind?’

        I love Nicole’s pants here, though.  Super tight, stretchy jeans.

    •  I dunno, after looking more closely at these shots, I think they are actually skinny jeans with LOTS of spandex in them.  See the rivet on the pocket?  And that sure looks like a fly closure to me. 

      • Anathema_Device

        I was going off that legging/sweatpant ribbing at the bottom. So they may be jeggings, a word I cannot stand.

        •  Maybe she cuffed them up, to get more of a Capri pant thing going on? 

        • I think they’re just cuffed/rolled up jeans with lots of spandex. I was under the impression that “jeggings” were only really the tromp l’oeil variety and thus would not have real pockets. 
          Then again, I am guilty of wearing my BlackMilk leggings as pants on occasion, so I shouldn’t talk. 

          • Anathema_Device

            Oh don’t worry. I’m criticizing her leggings/jeggings/whatevers while I’m wearing gray sweatpants, the oversized t-shirt I slept in, and an old fleece jacket with holes in it. And I think I still have sheet marks on my face.

          • I just spit coffee on my ratty t-shirt and faded black yoga pants reading this! HAHA!

          • lonepear

            Black Milk leggings are fabulous and deserve to be worn as pants. (I have the blue galaxies. Fortunately, my friends are too polite to make jokes about the universe expanding.)

          • Woot. They’re my guilty pleasures. Still don’t have a pair of galaxies yet though. 

      • warontara

        Agreed. I think those are jeans. They’re making them more and more spandex-filled these days. I ordered a pair of skinny jeans from Banana Republic the other day and didn’t realize until they’d arrived that they were 30% spandex. 

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      Let’s call them “flying pants” and promise to only wear them for that occasion.  Then, I think it’s OK!

    • ballerinawithagun

      I agree!

  • 3boysful

    I want the shoes.

    • My exact thought when I saw that picture. I imagine they cost more than I make in a month but they may be worth it.

    • BerlinerNYC

      Yes. So nice to see a flat that isn’t just the same old thing. Wouldn’t more women wear flats if they made one that were more, well, flattering?

    • miscorrections

       Those are the most chic flats I’ve seen in a very long time.

  • Totally fab street style.  Love it. She’s serving up attitude like no one’s business, and yet its not in an annoying way – it’s simply “I am what I am – a fabulous international movie star, take it or leave it.” Why yes Ms. Kidman, I’ll take it.  Love the interesting two face-esque shoes, love her hair, and love her sunglasses. 

  • RuthGo

    If I wore this outfit, I would look like a huge schlub but she looks chic. Bitch. 

    •  On of the many reasons I like reading this site is that I’m learning quite a lot new und funny words. “Schlub” is cool. Thank you!

  • Blondella

    is she pitting out or is that a shadow?

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      Agh!  I think so..   So, it happens to the best of them.  What to do?

      • Carlodog

         Well I’ve heard most of them get Botox shots in the pits to stop sweat glands from functioning.  Amazed that Kidman the Botox Queen hasn’t done this.

  • Sobaika

    How sophisticated!

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    Very chic travel outfit… comfy for flying, but very put together!  Cute hair.  She’s looking very young. 

    • littlemac8

      Panta that tight are rarely comfortable to sit it, especially for a long plane ride.

  • siriuslover

    She looks very mid-century European chic here. Very nice.

  • Sweet outfit!  its also totally appropriate for the location and time of year.  Whoever her stylist is gets serious props!  My favorite part? The peachy color of her cardi references the shade of her skin tone, while being far enough from it not to bland out.

    • janetjb

      “Appropriate”: every time I say it I feel I’m channeling my grandmother, but that’s exactly how she looks. 

      I wouldn’t want to see her wear a gown in that color, but paired with the white it’s good.

      •  Nothin’ at all wrong with appropriate, ever.  Our Grannies knew a few things.

    • MilaXX

      THIS! it looks believably unstyled.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    hmmm…i may be in the minority but i am not loving her hair…looks like she just picked it up off one of the foam wig heads at the mall and plunked it on….

    •  I don’t love her hair either, mainly because I think she’s so stunningly beautiful with darker red hair and her natural curls.  This pale blonde and reddish-blonde she’s been into for the past 5 or so years just washes her out so much–and, frankly, makes her look pretty ordinary.  I mean, why would you even *think* of doing that when your natural color and texture suit you so well? I thought she was so gorgeous in Eyes Wide Shut and Moulin Rouge, and can’t fathom why she wants to look like everybody else now.

  • Cant stop staring at her sweaty armpits. 

  • J MN

    Love her hair!  It looks so much fuller and bouncy compared to the flat ironed.  She looks great coming off a long flight, very cute and casual but appropriate.  

  • TomBord

    no matter what the bitch wears or how much bad work she has done to her puss;  she still once was a mrs cruise, which means a BIG, no thank you.

  • J MN

    Man, if that’s a wig I’ll feel stupid but it could be….  She should wear ‘it’ or her own hair like this more often.

    • rkdgal

      If that’s a wig, I want to know where I can get it — I would rock that shit!

  • Lina_bee

    Oh, Nic, who did that to your hair?  That style is HORRIBLE.   Also, it looks more like a bad wig than real hair.  Otherwise, you look great, though. And at least bad hair will grow out.

  • After years of botoxing her forehead into oblivion she discovered bangs. Atta’ girl.

  • Gorgeous. But I’ve had a soft spot for Nicole going back to Dead Calm and The Portrait of a Lady. I’ve even stuck by her through her changing face.

  • Judy_J

    Has she always been that busty?

  • Anna Tree

    Did we outlaw nude linings and no one told me?

    PS I am going to go with “25” as the answer to the question: “How old is too old for visible bra syndrome?”

    • kimmeister

      Or at least wear a bra that matches your skin so that it doesn’t show!

  • This is the best I’ve seen her hair in AGES. And such a cute look that could translate to “the real world,” too!

  • mjude

    she looks GREAT. love her

  • quiltrx

    Very chic, and very travel-appropriate.  Beautiful without yelling LOOK AT ME…as you said, pay attention, ladies.

  • Verascity

    I guess I’m in the minority… her wig is nice, but it’s obviously a wig, and I do not support the foregoing the undershirt.

  • That hair color is gorgeous.

  • Sara__B

     I just can’t condone the visible bra. Tacky tacky tacky. Other than that, she looks great.

  • Very cute and stylish.

  • TieDye64

    The visible bra is a no. I love everything else. Casual and chic.

  • nancylee61

    Is she going blonde again?? Ugh. Too much whiteness. Too much.

  • marilyn

    She looks as if she grabbed odds and ends from the back of the closet in a hurry.  I think the pants are too tight, the blouse too seethrough for daytime, and the cardigan goes with nothing.  It is odd that she matched the color in her outfit to her hair color.  A first.  One suggestion:  Get the laundry done and things like this won’t happen.

  • Melissa Brogan

    Cute hair, Nic, even if it’s not yours.

  • TheOriginalLulu

    She looks great.

  • guest2visits

    It would be really nice if there were pretty little frilly tops like these that were made with less transparent materials.
    They always seem to be way too flimsy not to have to layer with extra under garments. Wearing ‘extra’ clothes gets to
    be a hassle, especially when it’s hot to begin with.  Wearing the cute little cardi helps keep it from being too exposed; I guess.
    She’s beautiful and has a great figure, but skinny white jeans keep this from being a perfect classic, for me.

    • MilaXX

      I just wear a camisole with a built in bra underneath. 

      • guest2visits

        I have 4 different camis and I hate them all. But thats because we’re living in a tropical clime right now;
         and wearing a heavy pair of socks would probably give a person heat stroke.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    I am sorry.  She is just too old to have her bra in view.  I feel mortified just looking at her. 

  • Cathy S

    Her hair looks great. 

  • EEKstl

    Love the hair.  She really knows how to wear clothes.

  • golspie

    She’s had so much work done to her face, she looks as hollow and carved-out as a shopfront mannequin.

  • Cute kicks! Anyone know who makes them?

  • The seam on the forward leg of her jeans is twisted because the fabric on that leg has been (incorrectly) cut off-grain.  Not her fault though.

  • Presumptuous Insect

    Looks OK, but anyone who would marry Tom Cruise has got to be kind of cracked.

  • MilaXX

    The few times I have seen her casual look she always looks pretty good. Love the new hair.

  • sashaychante

    Her hair finally looks good!  Bangs suit her face. Hope that is a new cut and not a weave/extension or some such hair modifier.

  • bluefish

    Perfect!  Love those little shoes.

  • Rebecca Huber

    That bra does not fit her AT ALL.

  • Noooooo I can’t believe you went along with that stupid amount of sheerness!  Hate!  So much hate!

  • ZnSD

    um, is she wearing white pajama jeans?

  • wish she’d go redder. and i think her pants are a bit snug.

    weirdly, in the first picture, there’s a bizzaro-nicole outfit inside the building: white jeans rolled up to capris, apricot heels instead of flats, and apricot sweatshirt instead of sweater.

    • I noticed that, too. It’s like a weird reflection in that first shot. 

    • UptownNippy

      I noticed that. At first I thought it was her doppelganger and then I wasn’t sure.  Must be the airport style of the day.

  • Lilyana_F

    Never been a fan, but good job, girl! That’s how it’s done

  • Susan Crawford

    Yep. Girl can bring it. LOVE the shoes with a passion!

  • Belle239

    Someone else mentioned it, but that seam on the left leg of her pants being off because it was cut off-grain really perturbs me.  For as much as she probably paid for them, that is unexusable sloppy workmanship.  Can’t believe that isn’t bugging her to death and I would have sent them back. 

    •  Sometimes it is not sewn like that but twists while one sits and turns.  It happens in skinny jeans, a lot.

  • arm pit sweat

  • Good hair.

  • turtleemily

    3/4 sleeves with capris bugs me. I love what that cardigan does to her skin tone, though.

  • Call me Bee

    Beautiful  Like a chic French woman.  THat’s the way you travel–not in those Gaga getups, right? 

  • ThaliaMenninger

    She is looking so much more like her real self these days than she did for, oh, the last ten or twelve years. WTG, Nicole.

  • giiiirrrr


  • Negien Mirzai

    that looks like something that is not her real hair

  • Zippypie

    Those aren’t jeans – they’re capri jeggings, for the love of Pete.  They have a stretch cuff.  No wonder they’re twisted.  Yuck.

    Despite the fact that I long for her to return to her natural red hair, I think she looks pretty relaxed and pretty.  Like the new hairstyle.

  • You don’t think the shoes and cardy are a bit matchy-matchy? 

  • Lisa

    I love the look, but she needs to get her hand out of her pocket – which, we say to the men folk, but not to the ladies, and at time, it applies to them too.  In pants that tight and that white, the fact that you can see her knuckles through the pocket is NOT flattering.

  • Sophie Collier

    Yay!  NIc has curves now!  She looks good.

  • very cute and I love that she’s wearing flats at the airport, like I think MOST women do!

  • Love the shoes

  • butterflysunita

    She wore that on a long flight?  White pants? 

  • LilyPad

    The purse is tacky, and her see-through top comes off as desperate. I think those two elements really cheapen her look, but I like the rest of it. The word “chic” does not come to mind.

  • littlemac8

    I don’t think pants (f, indeed, they are pants) that tight are attractive on ANYONE!!

  • PeaceBang

    Tampon commercial pants!

  • ccm800

    Christine Hendricks could work this exact outfit.
