Nicole Kidman In Christian Dior – ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere & Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Nicole Kidman In Christian Dior - ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere & Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Giving us our second look within a few hours, Nicole Kidman was a vision of total perfection this evening at ‘The Great Gatsby’ Cannes Film Festival premiere, which also serves as the Opening Ceremony.

Wearing Dior, the Australia actress selected a look from the Spring 2013 Couture collection which I’m certain ranked highly on many of your wish lists.

The strapless floral embroidered creation was styled with a coral pair of Dior which beautifully offset the blossoms in her frock.

A high ponytail, Ferragamo clutch and a rouge lip colour completed her look.

She is easily one of my favourites tonight.

    J’adore. I have no complaints, I simply love this look. One of my favourites of the night for sure.

  2. chandrew May 15, 2013 at 18:37 #

    while I’m not blown away by this look, I do appreciate it’s simplicity and elegance, so it’s a win for me.

    She couldn’t have had a better kick-off! Spectacular!

    And I love her for her never-boring shoe choices! I imagine this dress with some kind of black footwear and I cry!

    Keep up the game Nicole! (or should I say Grace Kelly? 😉 )

    • Christine May 16, 2013 at 02:27 #

      She looks spectacular. BDOTW worthy! The best dressed on Day 1.

  5. noo May 15, 2013 at 18:38 #

    this is the only look that i remotely like so far! nicole looks breathtaking 😀

  6. Lilly May 15, 2013 at 18:40 #

    I’m speechless. This is amazing. I’m starting to wonder if she works with another team when she is in Europe.

  7. Mary May 15, 2013 at 18:40 #

    Wow, love it!

  8. Camélias May 15, 2013 at 18:40 #

    My favorite tonight. It’s been a while since I’ve loved one of her loorks but i’m actually blown away!

  9. Alina May 15, 2013 at 18:41 #


    Def. the best she’s looked since the JPG from the Grammy’s.

  10. Charlotte May 15, 2013 at 18:41 #

    I really don’t like the dress, the cut and he print are not great, especially together! Her hair is awful. A really bad look for me

  11. Anj May 15, 2013 at 18:42 #

    This is a stunning look. Definitely BDOTW worthy.

  12. eng-narak May 15, 2013 at 18:44 #

    BDOTW sure romantic classic and elegant!!!

    • Fiona-Brasil May 15, 2013 at 20:43 #


  13. dee May 15, 2013 at 18:45 #

    I am not wowed but she looks lovely. I like the way the hair looks only from the front. The side and back view of her hair are not working for me.

  14. Jess May 15, 2013 at 18:45 #

    Amazing dress, just wish the shoes were a bit softer. They’re a little in-your-face for me

  15. Nat39 May 15, 2013 at 18:46 #

    I’m not a fan of the frock – the florals, the shape…not to my liking, but it works wonderfully on Nicole’s figure and her styling is so polished, she is h2t perfection, def. thumbs up from me.

  16. dressaddict May 15, 2013 at 18:47 #

    That’s beautiful, I love it! Finally something beautiful, although I liked the McQueen look as much. (Please say something about Solange too :) )

    • Catherine Kallon May 15, 2013 at 19:58 #

      I would appreciate your patience. I am going as fast as I can.

  17. Neli May 15, 2013 at 18:48 #

    Best Dressed at opening ceremony!!

  18. petrelli May 15, 2013 at 18:49 #

    Not here for this,I don’t like thIs dress on her.

  19. Ramsay May 15, 2013 at 18:51 #

    Superb – chic as always but also bold – she went for volume which is rare for her – yes BDOTD

    • Tiger Nueng May 15, 2013 at 18:58 #

      I like your comment.

    • Ramsay May 15, 2013 at 19:00 #

      And someone pointed out on twitter that she looks like Grace Kelly which is very true

      • Tiger Nueng May 15, 2013 at 19:07 #

        Yes, I agree with them when I first close up saw her in this look.

  20. robbie May 15, 2013 at 18:53 #

    simple and elegant just what nicole does so well. this look is flawless!

  21. Clara May 15, 2013 at 18:53 #

    This is how it’s done. She looks absolutely magnificent. And the length is perfect on her. You need someone with her height to really pull off these Dior dresses which, sadly, Jennifer Lawrence and Marion don’t really have. At least not without the aid of unsightly platforms.

    Hair and make-up are also on point.

    Best dressed at the Opening Ceremony for me, by far.

    • Lee Ann May 16, 2013 at 12:15 #

      Jennifer Lawrence is 5’10”

  22. antoneLLina May 15, 2013 at 18:53 #

    FLAWLESS, pure goddess. love her.

    FC take a look at her arrival too:

    she is pure perfection

  23. Tiger Nueng May 15, 2013 at 18:57 #

    This is really new style for her but this really elegant look with flawless make up.

  24. Kimi May 15, 2013 at 18:59 #


  25. Elise May 15, 2013 at 18:59 #

    Unexpected outfit, I thought Nicole and fitted dresses were one item. Stunning, I love it.

  26. carol May 15, 2013 at 18:59 #

    Nicole in Dior by Ralf? definitely something I was not expecting, but oh boy, she just looks ethereal! Perfect look, and i love the hair like that

  27. Marybeth May 15, 2013 at 19:02 #

    Yes! I would never have picked that girly dress for her but she manages to make it look chic and elegant. Well done!

  28. kane May 15, 2013 at 19:04 #

    Easily my favourite Nicole of the day!

  29. fromchi-town May 15, 2013 at 19:07 #

    OMG – this is gorgeous. She looks perfect head to toe. This is my Best dressed of the day!

    • Fiona-Brasil May 15, 2013 at 20:45 #


  30. justme May 15, 2013 at 19:11 #

    Stunning but I wish she’d worn this to the photocall instead.
    For the opening movie premiere, it’s underwhelming.

    • Clara May 15, 2013 at 19:19 #

      This dress is way too much for a photocall look imo. Unless you want to look overly attention-grabby.

      For a premiere? It’s perfect. Just because it isn’t a grand ball gown doesn’t mean it’s inappropriate.

  31. Ruff May 15, 2013 at 19:19 #

    It´s a perfect look head to toe. Nice to see she went for something elegant and classy for the opening.

  32. Rebecca May 15, 2013 at 19:20 #

    Best I have ever seen her. She has done us Aussies so proud

    • AG May 16, 2013 at 03:32 #

      Yay Aussie pride! :)

  33. Moxie May 15, 2013 at 19:28 #

    Stunning. Love it H2T.

  34. Jai May 15, 2013 at 19:31 #

    She really stepped outside her usual style box and I appreciate that.

  35. KK May 15, 2013 at 19:38 #

    OMG #Obsessed Simple, elegant, pop of color, perfect! BDOTW!!

  36. Prudence May 15, 2013 at 19:42 #

    the only strapless gown I am okay with ! This is lovely, I am not dying over it but it is a nice look.

  37. cinzia May 15, 2013 at 20:26 #

    I really love this dress — so elegant and fresh. But I don’t love it that much on Nicole. Perhaps I imagine it would look better on someone who’s shorter and younger..

  38. Bella May 15, 2013 at 20:44 #

    Nicole – back to her stylish, elegant best! L.O.V.E this! And beautiful make-up and hair.

  39. Rebecca Z May 15, 2013 at 21:00 #

    I love the dress and shoes and her hair is gorgeous from the front, but I don’t like the heavy structuring of her hair from the side. Makes her hair look like a helmet–the exact opposite from the story the dress tells.

  40. Nat May 15, 2013 at 21:06 #

    she looks amazing. they styling is perfect. Best dressed of the week nominee

  41. DorianGray May 15, 2013 at 21:21 #

    I think we have a BDOTD, BDOTW and BDOTY!
    ps. I hope to see some Atelier Versace here and there too.

  42. Poppy May 15, 2013 at 22:33 #

    One of my favourites for the evening for sure. She looks lovely

  43. Pedro May 15, 2013 at 23:33 #


    Epic moment, epic look, epic actress.



  44. Lee Ann May 15, 2013 at 23:40 #

    This is what owning the red carpet looks like. It is not vulgar . It is not desperate (Cavelli) . Fan bomgbam take note. When you have reached the top of what you do you do not need gimmicks.

  45. Zuzu May 16, 2013 at 00:17 #

    Yes! I haven’t been in love with many of the looks so far (I miss Diane) but Nicole hasn’t disappointed me. She looks amazing.

  46. Anne May 16, 2013 at 01:54 #

    I am officially obsessed with Nicole’s entire look. She is channeling her inner Grace Kelly here. Not only is this my BDOTD, I do believe this currently ranks as my BDOTY. Gorgeous, simple silhouette with stunning details, perfect hair & lovely complementary makeup with totally fun, but appropriate shoes. Spot on!

  47. Alicat May 16, 2013 at 03:21 #

    What an outstandingly beautiful look. She is in a league of her own.

  48. AG May 16, 2013 at 03:34 #

    She looks sensational! Can’t fault a thing. Love the bright shoes with it, the interesting hairstyle, her flawless makeup…beautiful look.

  49. Markness May 16, 2013 at 03:38 #

    I love this. Nicole Kidman’s awards night run for this year were amazing. I’m expecting the same for this year. She’s following Diane Kruger who took all the stops to look amazing. I expect nothing less. Go Nicole! I’m kinda wishing she would wear lesser know designers as well mixed with the big names. :)

  50. asherlev1 May 16, 2013 at 04:03 #


  51. EmmaWoodhouse May 16, 2013 at 04:19 #

    This is the way for Nicole to work the Grace Kelly look. It’s very chic, and she styled it well. I might have gone a little softer with the hair, but she needed something to balance the girliness of the dress. I’d like it better with sleeves (so tired of strapless), but it’s got a great ’50s vibe and is quite beautiful.

  52. Ethan May 16, 2013 at 06:03 #

    Absolutely beautiful! Totally blown away by this outfit. The Best on day 1 for sure!

  53. Dhppy May 16, 2013 at 06:07 #

    The shoes work, yet I hate them.

  54. Pratyush May 16, 2013 at 06:13 #

    Nicole is back. And so is Dior.

  55. the ogre May 16, 2013 at 06:30 #

    thank god for her. with every post beginning from lana del rey my enthusiasm was starting to wane a bit but this really is pure perfection. for now v have 2 definite dior winners! who knew dior would b so popular on the red carpet at cannes this time round? this embraces the sensibility of the dior woman and i’m totally in love with those coral pumps.

  56. Jess2 May 16, 2013 at 13:21 #

    Pure perfection! Nicole and Dior are proving to be a stellar combination, it is great to see a Dior pairing doing so well. Love everything about this look from head to toe!

  57. Princess Chi Chi May 16, 2013 at 13:36 #

    I love this but am I the only one who hates how the length of many of these Dior dresses are always off. They’re always just a tad too long and it throws of the look for me and is really irritating.

  58. nonny May 17, 2013 at 02:32 #

    How rude, her name is Fan BingBing. I love Nicole’s look, its graceful and beautiful but I still adore BingBing’s style, she doesn’t demand attention she COMMANDS it.

  59. roxana May 17, 2013 at 16:51 #

    stunning dress, i don’t like the hair.

  60. Lynnette Lai May 18, 2013 at 07:16 #

    OMG. I just skipped a breath! How beautiful and statuesque. Nicole has hit it out of the park for me and this dress on Day 1. WOW. Love it.
