First reaction: Oh, that was sweet of Nicole Kidman to lend her one of her dresses for the night. What can we say? We’re bitches. To be fair, Nicole probably has rooms full of demure dresses in dainty florals, but this bold blue strikes us as pure Naomi. Nic’s would all be tea-stained and Nicole-colored.
It’s a good thing that color story and print look so great on her, because the dress itself is no great shakes. We’ll never stop thinking half-sheer skirts look goofy, but this one’s pretty subtle and it doesn’t register much when she’s sitting down. But the bodice looks dowdy and fussy to us. She can pull it off, but it’s much more about how well the colors suit her than the design itself.
Semi-fun game to distract you: Pick a pair of pumps in a color to complement the dress. We’d have gone with matching the sage-y greens or going for an autumnal shade of orange/gold, but there’s a case to be made for white. Discuss this important topic so you don’t have to think about the real world for the next five minutes.
