Nicole Kidman In Emilio Pucci - 2013 White House Correspondents' Association Dinner

Nicole Kidman attended the Bloomberg and ‘Vanity Fair’ cocktail reception, which was hosted after the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner at the residence of the French Ambassador in Washington, D.C.

The statuesque actress was a vision in lavender in this top-to-toe embellished Emilio Pucci dress.

Because the swirling, beaded gown was its own best accessory, she kept hers to a bare minimum with Manolo Blahnik shoes, a creamy Bottega Veneta clutch and a perfectly matched pair of Fred Leighton earrings.

I don’t know about you, but I liked seeing this softer side of Nicole.

With her strawberry-blonde strands styled into slightly tousled waves and a glossy mauve lip as an added flourish, Nicole clutched another fashion victory while simultaneously putting me in a bit of a ‘Great Gatsby’ mood.
