Cannes 2017: Nicole Kidman Spreads Her Wings

Posted on May 24, 2017

For at least a couple of years now, we’ve been calling on Nicole to do a deep dive on her style choices and figure out something new for herself, because the washed-out Grace Kelly drag and the sparkly movie princess drag had both stopped paying dividends some time back. When it comes to matters of style, we’re big proponents of finding your look and then finding a million different ways to interpret it, but with the proviso that your look is likely to change quite often over time, due to the practical needs of your life, your feelings about your own body and where you are both professionally and personally on your own timeline. For Miss Nicole, we suggested a dark, sparkly Disney witch kind of take since it’s something she occasionally works to great effect anyway.

But we’d never guessed she could do a pseudo-boho take:

That really looks spectacular on her. Once again, we must note that black is really her base color. She comes alive when she’s wearing it; especially if it’s black shot through with sparkle or rich colors. Granted, calling this “boho” is stretching it a bit, since it’s way too glam for that designation, but the color and pattern combined with the neckline, spaghetti straps, choker and rocker hair really give her a feeling she doesn’t normally get across in her style choices.

She’s having one of her best career years ever and her outward appearance really reflects that. That’s what good style does. It helps you tell the story of your life.
