Nicole Kidman donned head-to-toe red at a tribute gala held in her honour during the 2012 New York Film Festival on Wednesday evening in New York City.

The actress wore a dress by her favourite designer/stylist L’Wren Scott.

Her red fitted dress with fire-red sequin embroidered details had a sexy keyhole opening.

L’Wren Scott ‘Lady’ lattice shoes and Fred Leighton jewels accessorized her look.

Normally quite coy on the red carpet, this striking dress really appeared to bring her out of her shell.

Wavy tresses and a hot-red lip colour completed her look.
