Nicole Kidman In Clements Ribeiro – “Rabbit Hole” New York Premiere

Nicole Kidman looked radiant on the red carpet when she attended the “Rabbit Hole” New York Premiere last night.

The Australian actress wore a beautiful navy Clements Ribeiro embellished crepe and lace dress from the Spring 2011 collection.

Her sophisticated embellished dress with lace sleeves is divine. I’m quite – surprisingly – blown away by this look actually.

We’ve seen a lot of pencil-style dresses worn by Nicole Kidman in recent times, and even though this is a pencil dress it feels refreshing with it’s lose fit, rich texture and embellished details.

This type of length can be quite matronly on some, but I love it on Nicole.

With her strawberry blonde mane swept to one side Nicole completed her look with nude bow front heels.

I feel like I’m gushing.

Does anyone else love this look as much as I do?

    nicole looks best in her natural color,or close to it-a redhead! deep colors become her! otherwise, she looks washed out.

  • nueng0908

    I agree,she looks beautiful.

  • Leah

    why does this dress remind me of Chanel?

  • mari

    love the combination, it is a good dress for her!

  • Martin

    This is the best I’ve seen Nicole look for a very long while. The hair is back to the shade that it should be and the dress is beautifully simple in structure, but the detail ensures that it is not boring at all.

    Nicole seems to be a shoo-in for an Academy Awards nomination for Rabbit Hole, so I’m hoping for some incredible red carpet moments from her in the upcoming months. Fingers crossed for a moment like the 2007 Oscars in her red Balenciaga bow dress. We can only hope.

  • Sue Jin

    I really like it on her! Her hair color and dress make her eyes pop!

  • Lou

    Think she looks fantastic – I love it when she wears strong colours against her skintone!

  • Marvel

    Love this dress on her. I love the dress and perfectly suits despite it being slightly deja vu

  • mochababe73

    I don’t really like the dress on her at all. It’s boring and dowdy. I am around her age give or take a few years, and I wouldn’t wear this at all.

  • moja31

    matronly is definitely the first word that came to mind with this look, and unfortunately it comes to mind all too frequently where nicole is concerned these days. with all the lace and sparkles, i’m half expecting to see this on betty white, just with a longer hem and in a brighter hue.

  • lily

    absolutely right FC!! the color, the dress, the hair, is sooo her.. and absolutely beautiful..

  • Brooke

    There are few color combinations I like more than a redhead in a navy blue frock.

  • Lisa

    This looks awful on the model but Nicole makes it look amazing. Like a totally different dress. Love it.

  • mol

    I really like the dress and Nicole has the figure and posture to wear it well – but I don’t like her hairstyle, too girly and curly, it kills the dress for me, everything is just powder puff sweet (don’t like the shoes either)

    • KateS

      I agree, it could be good, but there’s something prissy about the whole look, and I think it has to do with the combination of hair, sleeves and shoes, all of which are perfectly nice in their own right.

  • Fiona

    Love love love. Love the colour, the fit and the overall easy sophistication. BDOTW contender without a doubt.

  • dee

    She looks great. Love the hair.

  • Fee

    Great colour on her and she does look good having gone back to red, but apart from that – meh. I HATE the sleeve length

  • aiyu

    She looks way better than the model. Nicole is back! (I hope)

  • Ayesha

    i’m not immediately in love with this look but yes nicole looks great here!

  • nicky

    absolutely agree. was generally surprised by this look as well. lets just hope she’ll continue on like this and not revert back to her questionable style before…especially with her locked nominations at upcoming award shows!

  • Natalie

    I LOVE this look. The blue is absolutely DIVINE with her hair color.

  • Re

    Love, love, love it.
    She looks gorgeous.

  • Helen

    Love it, such a modern but classic take on this look.

  • Talita

    She should be added to the BDOTW. Nicole is glowing!! x

  • justme

    I’m not wowed by it like you, FC, but she looks nice. I do wish her hair was up though.

  • Moxie

    She’s so pale that she looks much better as a red head than she did as a blonde. Great look for her.

  • molly

    Yes, love it. And so much better than the look she sported earlier in the day.

    • Fashion Critic

      I agree. That was the typical pencil dress I was referring to

  • Nope!

    • Alina


  • u r absolutely right FC
    for the first time ever she pulls off an effortless chic ala Carrey, Cate, Marion and looks as if she s a pro at it,
    lets hope this s not a one off LOL

  • This is such a good look – she has been a bit of a washout lately but i do love this, and thankfully he’s gone back to red – blonde is not a good look for her.

    • Ethne Blist

      It looks fake and ages her. I like this look.

      • Ethne Blist

        I meant her blonde hair looks fake and ages her so this new shade of red looks lovely. The dress is simple, but not. Love this look.

  • Gretta

    Yes. She looks beautiful. So divinely elegant.
