Nicole Kidman’s Almost-Perfect Red Carpet LBD at the Armani Privé Spring 2017 Show

Posted on January 25, 2017


We’ve been saying for a while that she’s one of those people who has a knack for wearing black. We’d like to think the Armani people, wondering which look from their line they should send to her for her front-row photo opp, read our words on the topic, nodded their heads sagely, and said something in Italian about how God himself put T Lo on this earth to show them all the way to good style.

Anyway, our daydreams seem to have gotten the better of us there for a second, so let’s all consider Nic’s look:


It’s not perfect, no. That sash is too wrinkly and sad, and the hem/footwear combo is awkward-looking. Plus we think she overdid it on the jewels. Either the earrings or the wrist party, but not both. We’d have rec’d just the earrings. And it pains us that no one considered putting her in a pair of pointy, witchy, Victorian-style lace-up booties instead of such yawn-inducing sandals.

Even so, we love that this basic-at-first-glance dress has some chic little details. The neckline is gorgeous and the sash is a good idea that just needs a little bit more in the way of practical considerations in its rendering, like a less puckery fabric and a shorter length. It’s a look that really suits her and you can tell she’s loving it. It just needs some adjustments and it could be flawless.
