Nicole Kidman in Valentino at the 2018 AACTA Awards

Posted on December 05, 2018

We feel like we’re not allowed to complain about this dress, seeing as how we’ve spent most of the last 3 or 4 years yelling at her to embrace bolder colors and designs. Welp. Mission accomplished:

 

 

Honestly? We think it’s pretty eye-catching, but there’s no denying it’s a LOT of dress. And yet, every time we try to mentally edit it – like picturing it without the panel of pink sequins, for instance – the design winds up looking unbalanced. We think it’s one of those designs you have to accept as-is because the extravagance of it is the whole point. On the other hand, we’re starting to detect the whiff of dying desperation regarding the prairie dress trend. Once a fashion trend reaches the “throw anything at it to make it interesting” stage, you can bet it’s on its way out.
