Nicole Kidman In Michael Kors Collection – 2018 ACM Awards

It may have been the Academy of Country Music Awards held on Sunday (April 15) in Las Vegas, Nevada, but the one person I was looking forward to seeing was Nicole Kidman.

Usually she brings a touch of Hollywood to the event, but I found myself deeply disappointed by this Michael Kors Collection custom look.

Despite being drenched in sequins there was just no spark from.

Factor in how the colour washes her out; this was a hard no from me.

The only thing I would save is her Fred Leighton 1960’s gold and turquoise pendant earrings and antique gold and diamond rings.

Nicole Kidman In Armani Privé – 2018 Oscars

My jaw dropped upon seeing Nicole Kidman on the 2018 Oscars red carpet on Sunday (March 4) in Hollywood, California.

This was such an iconic moment for Nicole, as this Armani Privé design not only was so striking in its royal-blue colour, it was so stunning on her statuesque frame.

But, more than any of that, is the sculptural extravagance of the bow that commanded the gown.

You may remember Nicole had another memorable best with a bow in a red Balenciaga gown at the 2007 Oscars.

Her styling and beauty look couldn’t have been more glamorous either—with her Harry Winston diamond earrings, sleek locks, and dark ruby-red lip.

Christian Louboutin ‘Jumping’ pumps completed the magnificent entrance.

Front Row @ Calvin Klein Fall 2018

There was to be no shortage of stars on the front row at the Calvin Klein Fall 2018 show, held on Tuesday (February 13), where the looks were just as diverse as the ladies themselves.

Nicole Kidman: I will always struggle with how satiny fabrics photograph, but seeing this Calvin Klein Spring 2018 look translated off the runway on Nicole, and I think she did it justice—even in spite of its cowgirl shirt-meets-retro diner uniform mood.

Lupita Nyong’o: Not only was the periwinkle hue of the blouse a radiant offering, the drama of the pouf sleeves added a layer of girly romance–to which the black skirt merely acted as the canvas to celebrate it.

Margot Robbie: I love how the ‘I, Tonya’ actress took this Calvin Klein Fall 2017 jacket and stripped away the rest of the elements to make a dress. It had an insouciant chicness about it; a vibe that was only furthered by her mismatched sandals, giant hoop earrings, and slicked-back bun.

Get The Look: Nicole Kidman’s SAG Awards Glistening Copper Beauty

Nicole Kidman has been a shining star this awards season and the SAG Awards were no exception.

The actress dazzled in a sparkling copper-toned Armani Privé gown as she took home yet another award (Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries) for her brilliant performance in ‘Big Little Lies’. Nicole was evidently radiating joy at Sunday evening’s awards ceremony but it was her equally glistening warm-hued beauty look that wonderfully tied her whole look together.

Inspired by the stunning iridescence of her gown and her radiant personality, Celebrity Makeup Artist Molly Stern created a look that complemented her evening’s sartorial choice. Opting for a look that incorporated shimmering copper shades and emphasizing the high points of her face, Nicole’s beauty look was fresh and topped off with a bold lip and lush lashes. Using Neutrogena’s extensive skin and color collection, here’s how Molly created Nicole’s winning look for the evening:

SKIN: Always star with a makeup-free, cleansed face. For well hydrated and prepped skin, Molly massaged a layer of Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream onto the skin. This created a smooth canvas for foundation while the anti-aging properties absorbed into the skin.

FACE: Once moisturized, Molly buffed Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup in Natural Ivory onto the skin. She then followed with Neutrogena Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector in Fair to brighten up the under eye area. To warm up the skin, Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blends in Sunkissed was blended onto the cheeks for a subtle glow. For an added pop of color, Molly diffused Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blush in Rosy atop Sunskissed.

EYES: To warm up the look even further, Molly incorporated the luxurious coppery shade of Nicole’s dress into her eye look. She began by saturating and blending Neutrogena Nourishing Long Wear Eye Shadow + Primer – in Soft Taupe, a copper-toned shadow onto the lids. She framed the eyes by lining them in Neutrogena Nourishing Long Wear Eye Liner in Spiced Chocolate. The final step to creating Nicole’s elegant eye look was layering a couple of coats of Neutrogena’s new Hydro Boost Plumping Mascara in Black onto the lashes. “The Hydro Boost mascara was easy to use and really gave her a feathery, fluffy lash that always completes the look,” says Molly.

LIPS: For an added dose of luxurious color, Molly chose a bold wine lip with a soft finish to tie up the full look. To create the dramatic pout, Molly applied Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Lip Shine in Velvet Wine to the lips.
