Nicole Kidman poses for photographers at the launch of the Christmas display windows at Le Printemps in Paris.
This strikes us as a very Nicole sort of way to signal Christmas without being cliched about it:
It’s lightweight, pastel-toned and fluttery in the Kidman mode, but it’s got just enough green and red to keep her within the theme of the event. Besides, she’s in Paris, not sitting on a Macy’s Parade float. Some high-fashion twists on the theme were more than called for. Girlfriend wasn’t going to show up in a reindeer sweater.
Having said all that, we don’t really love any of the pieces here, even as we begrudgingly admit that the ensemble sort of works. The shoes are interesting, but the mesh part kills that interest. The skirt’s nice enough. And that blouse is fine enough, but we’re not inclined to love the over-wrought sleeves or the cold shoulders.
It’s all very Nicole, vaguely Parisian, and slightly Christmas. On point.
