Nicole Kidman In Jean Paul Gaultier Couture – 2011 Grammy Awards

Best Dressed Award
I would never have expected to crown Nicole Kidman Best Dressed at the 2011 Grammy Awards, but she totally blew me away.

She’s appears to be back to her best.

We’ve been sensing from her recent red carpet looks that she’s loving dressing up on the red carpet again.

This strapless floral Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2011 Couture mermaid gown actually manages to give Nicole some curves.

She was radiant on the red carpet. I can’t help revisiting this picture.

    In Poland we say “the old love doesn’t rust” and it’s clearly the case when it comes to Nicole and JPG. back to her best, absolutely stunning! i would love to see more of this attitude and fabulousity from her and no more boring l’wren scott dresses….

  • Emi

    She’s breathtaking… One of her best looks, most of all because of her hair color, very beautiful. BDOTW contender.

  • OMG.. wat an awesome pic… she beat them all including JLo….. BDOTW… may even consider BDOTY… wat do u say FC? chances of BDOTY??
    its funny to see her and rihanna side by side in the same collection…. one dress is so attention seeking.. the other so elegant and classy

  • she’s definitely tapping into the old nicole kidman who we treasured as the belle of the red carpet and the frequent coverstar of american vogue. this is how one should wear gaultier couture. it’s tasteful, age-appropriate, yet still fashion forward and unconventional.

  • roxana

    great look!

  • karen

    I was shocked to see her looking good on the red carpet too! Go Nicole.

  • mol

    She looks awesome and she knows it – she was having fun tonight, whenever they showed her on camera she was digging the music…..bdotw worthy for sure…

  • Sharon

    Not only does she look fantastic, she looks so happy! It’s great to see Nicole all dressed up. smiling and laughing with her gorgeous husband. Apparently life is good for the Kidman-Urbans, and it shows.

  • CreoleLady

    Nicole – best dressed. RiRi – best undressed. Am in complete agreement with your assessment of both women. This year’s Grammys was full of surprises and a lot of fun fashion-wise.

  • Ella

    OMG!!!!!! Nicole finally looks amazing! She looks incredible. I hereby nominate her for BDOTW!! I mean, she looks gorgeous–and hasn’t in a while.

    • KateS

      x 2! My jaw literally dropped when I saw this. She’s in a stunning dress and is working it – hooray!

  • lily

    She looks like a Grammy 🙂
    More than amazing, she is really a beautiful woman.

  • Naomi

    wow, that’s the best she looked in AGES. She looks great, and that is one gorgeous dress. Love the colors.

  • Yaas

    Breath-taking and stunning! Well done Nicole!

  • Thomas Monks

    I hope this is her showing she can pull this collection off cuz my oscar wish for her is the purple chiffon tired column gown from this collection

  • Shaina

    As soon as I saw her on the red carpet, my jaw dropped to the keyboard! This is the best I have ever seen her and she seems to have a lot of confidence wearing this.

  • Alfie

    OMG! She looks AMAZING! Who would have thought! She is OWNING IT!

    I can’t wait for the Beyonce and Gwyneth Paltrow ID’s!

  • Danika

    Totally agree FC she looks great, fresh, beautiful and happy.

  • libbyloo

    This made my mouth literally fall to the floor. STUNNING. I don’t think Kidman has worn JPG since the 90s?!

    My god, this has me so excited to see what she has in store for the Oscars. Don’t disappoint, girl!

    • Paulo

      She wore Gaultier a lot in the early 2000s. She was wearing Gaultier Couture when she won the Oscar in 2003. 🙂

  • Sher

    I’m with you FC – I can’t stop looking at her pics. Stunning. BD for sure. So happy Nicole is back!

  • Paulo

    Yes, yes, yes! When I saw Nicole, I was so hoping that her look would get your approval. I’m so glad to hear that she’s your best dressed!

    Nicole and Gaultier have always been a winning combination!

        • Pam

          I totally agree with Pam’s comment! I went to comment and see that someone with the same name already stated my sentiments. Should I change my name?!
