Nicole Kidman at Swisse Event in Valentino

Nicole Kidman attends a Swisse promotional event in Shanghai, China.

 

You guys, she looks so darn pleased with herself. We’re not sure we have the heart to tell her the truth about her dress.

Oh, who are we kidding? Of course we have the heart to tell her. Nicole: your dress is insane. And not in a particularly good way. And it’s a shame, because we’re really only talking about one part. The skirt is fabulous – and had the bodice merely continued the design upwards, this probably would’ve worked for us. But instead, most of the design elements in the skirt fade away at the waist, leaving only that bizarre bandeau for your eyes to rest on – and that entirely too focus-pulling neckline. With everything else going on in this dress – much of it quite good – it’s a bit sad that the end result visually is “head resting on boobs.”

Love the sandals, but they probably should’ve been paired with a simpler look.
