Nicole Kidman In Emilio Pucci – 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

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.

    Wow…I LOVE this. Possibly the best of the night. Just awesome!

    Love this soft colour on her too. The embellishments on the gown are beautiful.

    Love it! Gorgeous detailing.

    I’m waiting with baited breath to see her array of outfits next month in Cannes. I’m expecting her to bring it!

    I can’t see how anyone could say she’s not the best of the night – head and shoulders above the rest – just so classy – and Pucci with Peter Dundas can be tacky sometimes but she makes it look so chic – I like it a lot even if an updo could’ve also worked with this dress – BDOTW worthy for me

    I like it. The colour is divine on her!

    She IS the best of the night. I think she looked exquisite. The color is so delicate and the dress so unique. I don’t think it’s even a contest. Kind of wish she’d worn this during awards season, it’s that lovely.

    Beautiful! Perfect.
    Best of the night, I think.

  8. Christine April 28, 2013 at 18:52 #

    Pretty. Cant wait to see her at Cannes.

      The color against her skin is gorgeous!! She was the second best of the night (Following Mrs.Obama :) )

    I am in total love with this look.

  10. Sandrah April 28, 2013 at 19:02 #

    Love the whole look. I also think she was the best dressed of the night.

    Looking forward to Cannes too.

  11. Appollonia April 28, 2013 at 19:09 #

    I can´t see how anyone can find ANY flaw in her look. She reached perfection. Absolutely gorgeous.

  12. Rebecca Z April 28, 2013 at 19:52 #

    She does look spectacular. It is a gorgeous dress, the color is sublime on her, the earrings are perfect. My only complaint is the clutch–it detracts slightly in a way that a smaller black clutch would not have.

  13. Noemi April 28, 2013 at 20:35 #

    Perfect, the dress is gorgeous and she looks great.

  14. Aline April 28, 2013 at 20:46 #

    The dress is so pretty! And I also love her earrings. Overral, I really like this look. But, I really wish she had opted for a chignon instead.

  15. Leti April 28, 2013 at 21:25 #

    Perfection!

  16. asherlev1 April 28, 2013 at 21:39 #

    OMG she looks so good! I think this is the first time I’ve liked a look of hers head to toe!

  17. Nat39 April 28, 2013 at 22:21 #

    Very pretty and delicate, would’ve preferred a silver clutch instead of slightly distracting creamy.

  18. Alicat April 28, 2013 at 23:37 #

    She looks beautiful in this exquisite gown.

  19. Sterling Silver April 29, 2013 at 00:56 #

    This dress only shows the shortcomings of photography. Must be seen in person. Spectacular gown and Nicole is beautiful as always.

  20. AG April 29, 2013 at 02:08 #

    Nicole has been killing it lately! So lovely, can’t think of a single improvement that could be made.

  21. Thomas April 29, 2013 at 02:46 #

    Love it. Fits her to a T, the waist band the length.. PERFECT

  22. B April 29, 2013 at 07:19 #

    WOW, the detailing on the gown is divine. love it! BDOTW, she looks amazing!

  23. Jess2 April 29, 2013 at 11:39 #

    So amazing, she is absolutely stunning!

  24. dee April 29, 2013 at 13:41 #

    I love everything but her hair looks dry and brittle especially on the top.

  25. Nat April 29, 2013 at 14:08 #

    I love it. She looks elegant and not over the top for the event. I love the styling as well.

  26. Moxie April 29, 2013 at 15:28 #

    Absolutely gorgeous dress, but tired of the hair. She really needed to do something different.

  27. Kathy April 29, 2013 at 18:31 #

    The look itself is flawless, in the sense that Nicole looks like herself and I can’t point out anything I would change, but it’s not taking my breath away. Perfectly executed, yet forgettable.

  28. Tiger Nueng April 30, 2013 at 03:09 #

    She look so amazing!!!

  29. Laura April 30, 2013 at 11:06 #

    This dress is sublime. It’s a shame there is only picture of the back of it. http://www.washingtonpost.com/rf/image_606w/2010-2019/WashingtonPost/2013/04/28/Style/Images/nicolekidman.jpg
