Nicole Kidman has long been a red carpet favourite, from when she was first introduced on Tom Cruise’s arm in the ’90s. She dazzled us in Dior, Gucci, Versace, YSL, and Nina Ricci, to name a few. Then she kinda lost her fizz.
This year she was back to her best, giving us drop-dead-gorgeous look after drop-dead-gorgeous look, starting with Alexander McQueen at the Golden Globe Awards, then onto Vivienne Westwood at the SAG Awards before her epic run during Cannes Film Festival, which really saw her get back in the saddle.
Even by her own admission the Australian actress said that she fell out of love with fashion, but thanks to her starring role as fashion icon Grace Kelly in ‘Grace of Monaco’ that passion has been ignited once again and we are all grateful to that casting director.
When the film is released in 2014, we can look forward to an amazing promo tour.
I have to give an honourable mention to Olivia Wilde, who also got back into her groove this year.
