Nicole Kidman in Altuzarra at “The Railway Man” Premiere

Posted on September 09, 2013

It took us forever to figure out why this wasn’t wowing us. At first we thought it was the shoes:

And it’s true that they are a bit of a problem. The outfit has an edge to it, which means prissy little bows on your feet don’t really make much sense. But that’s not the only, or even the most prominent thing that’s bothering us here. It’s the pants. We love ourselves a skinny pant on the right person, and Nicole is definitely the kind of gal who can rock them, but they’re simply not working with that jacket. We really think she needed the straight-legged pant with the slight flare to them. Gives the jacket a slightly edgier vibe to it. Pairing it with skinny pants just makes it go generic, to our eyes. Oddly enough – and this gives you some idea of how capricious style can be – the skinny pants make it look a little frumpy and mature, which are not normally words one associates with skinny pants.

Really great jacket, by the way.
