Clear the carpet, peasants. Miss Lady is walking.

Yeah, she’s in full on Princess Grace Barbie mode right now. We would expect no less from her.

Y’know, it has to be said… we kinda think this dress on most other ladystars in her age range would have us saying “Girl, that’s not your dress” and suggesting she ship it off to some starlet half her age. Not that it’s too youthful in a trendy or sexualized way; just that this kind of precious pretty doesn’t always work for a lot of ladies over the age of 25 or so. It’s got “Fanning sister” or Emma Watson written all over it. But Nicole’s a PhD-level dress-wearer, so it’s a moot point. She can make things work that mere mortals wouldn’t even bother trying.

We’re not super-crazy about the shoes, which seem a little focus-pulling – and by the way, does she ever wear open-toed shoes or sandals? And we think her hair looks a little odd from the back, but these don’t really detract all that much from the overall look. She’s gorgeous.
