Best Dressed Of The Week – Nicole Kidman In Jean Paul Gaultier Couture

We breathed a collective sigh of relief when Nicole Kidman hit the red carpet at the 2011 Grammy Awards this week.

The Nicole Kidman we all know and love was back.

Despite Lady GaGa’s egg, Nicki Minaj’s head-to-toe leopard Givenchy print and Katy Perry’s wings, we only had eyes for Nicole in Jean Paul Gaultier Couture.

This BDOTY worthy look definitely deserves a place in Nicole’s red carpet hall of fame.

Which other looks would you place in her Hall of Fame?

I would add her red Balenciaga gown as worn to the 2007 Oscars.

    Definitely the Balecnciaga, and emilion pucci 2003 at cannes. She really suits colour, I wish she would wear it more!

      i agree with every single one of these!

      not if the gucci you mean the one she wore to the golden globes in 2005, if so then i definetely agree.

    Her chartreuse chinoiserie Dior couture gown worn to the Oscars in 97 is definitely my all time favourite look from her. Though I agree that this look and her red Balenciaga should be in her red carpet Hall of Fame. Maybe along with her Tom Ford for Gucci worn to the Costume Institute gala in 2003 and the black YSL Rive Gauche worn to the Cannes Film Festival in 2001

      Agree! Galliano for Dior, I believe. I have never forgotten that chartreuse gown, a difficult color and unforgiving silhouette but absolutely gasp-inducing on Nicole.

    I was always a huge fan of this one from her Moulin Rouge premiere in Cannes.

    I was never a fan of the 2007 red Balenciaga. The dress was alright, but she never looked more plastic that she did that night.

    Here are my faves:

    1. YSL Rive Gauche “mullet” dress from the Golden Globes. Loved the huge Indian earrings.

    2. Galliano chartreuse gown from the Oscar. Loved the cut..the most elegant of all!

    3. Gucci nude sparkly number from the MET gala! Loved the duster diamond earring

    4. Light blue Chanel strapless dress from the Oscars!

    5. Chinese vase inspired dragon dress from the Tony’s.

    6. Pucci print dress from the Cannes opening. Beeeeautiful!

    The chartreuse Galliano for Dior is the one I really remember. Back in the “olden days” of 1997 it wasn’t as common to see actresses in haute couture so this dress was really electrifying.

    I used to be in love with her fashion choices. I agree with all of the mentions but my all time favorite is Tom Ford for the Costume Institute Gala in 2003. That dress is one of the most beautiful dresses I’ve seen in my life.

  13. Emi February 21, 2011 at 10:19 #

    Oscars 1997: Dior
