Nicole Kidman in Azzedine Alaïa

Posted on July 30, 2012

Much to discuss in the following pictures of Nicole, darlings. We’ll prepare you with an agenda, so you know what to look for:

  1. Her shoes
  2. Her men’s-style watch
  3. Her face.


Nicole Kidman attends the launch of OMEGA House in London in an Azzedine Alaïa dress paired with Manolo Blahnik sandals.

But let’s start with the dress, which is very cute and looks great on her in a simple-chic kinda way. We also think the shoes are adorable and stylish. But we question whether they look good paired with a flared, short skirt like this. Proportionally, this just looks weird. Pair those kickass shoes with some skinny pants and you’d have us applauding, but we don’t think they’re working here.

We’re seeing a lot of ladystars sporting the men’s or men’s-style watch lately. We have no opinion on it except to roll our eyes at the fact that they all started doing it at the same time. We’ve been saying for a couple years now that watches were likely to make a major style comeback at some point once the generation who never grew up needing them reach a certain age and decide they’re retro-cool, like using a filter to make your perfectly acceptable pictures look like they came out of a crappy Polaroid camera in 1977. Don’t even get us started on THAT one.

And finally, Face. Girl, you were doing really good there for a while, letting everything settle down until you started looking normal again. But you’re looking very surprised and wide-eyed here and we hope Katie’s masterful escape over the wall didn’t have you running back to the needle, honey. We’re going to assume you’re just unusually fresh-faced and a little surprised here.

Overall, it’s a chic and sassy look, though. Love the earrings.
