Nicole Kidman In Elie Saab Couture – BAFTA Brits To Watch Event

Best Embellishments/Best Couture Award
Nicole Kidman sparkled on the red carpet at the BAFTA Brits To Watch Event, which was held at the Belasco Theatre in LA yesterday evening.

The Australian actress wore a custom Elie Saab gown.

Ice blue is a fabulous colour for Nicole, as it brings out the colour in her eyes.

The embellished gown with structured shoulders also has a drape detailing at the back.

Whilst I like the Manolo Blahnik heels, I’m not too crazy about the satin Ferragamo clutch.

The colour matches, yet it feels so out of place for me.

I would’ve preferred a box shaped minaudière which wasn’t so in the way.

Many of you have tagged Nicole as being boring on the red carpet for the past few years, so what do you think about this look?

Nicole Kidman In Proenza Schouler – 2011 CMT Awards

I have been crushing on Nicole Kidman for a while now, so I was really excited to see what she wore next on the red carpet.

She wore another interesting look tonight at the 2011 CMT Music Awards, opting for a modern Proenza Schouler Fall 2011 dress.

The green and blue striped velvet dress with a black chiffon skirt appears to be modified from the runway.

Either Nicole’s version has a nude lining; her dress isn’t as lined as the runway version; or the skirt doesn’t look as dark because she’s (thankfully) not wearing tights.

Whatever the reason, I’m not too fond of how the nude lining looks on Nicole.

The dress was better presented on the runway.

Nicole’s dress gives me the feeling that something is missing.

I do however love those Pierre Hardy lilac sandals.

Nicole Kidman In Dries van Noten – 2011 Billboard Music Awards

Feel Like Something Is Missing Award
Nicole Kidman seems to have made more red carpet appearances for music events than any other event this year.

She supported her husband Keith Urban at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas last night looking very statuesque wearing a Dries van Noten Fall 2011 dress.

Her long black embellished dress with a sheer skirt and shorter sleeves was styled with hooped earrings and a side sweeping messy plait.

I like that Nicole appears more comfortable at these events, but something is missing.

I can’t quite put my finger on it. A clutch maybe? But then the effortlessness comes from not being laden with too many things.

Nicole looks gorgeous; like an elegant swan.

Nicole Kidman In L’Wren Scott – 2011 Academy Of Country Music Awards

Honorary Country Girl Award
The 2011 Academy Of Country Music Awards took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada yesterday.

Nicole Kidman arrived on the red carpet with her hubby Keith Urban wearing a L’Wren Scott Fall 2011 uber sexy dress with a side split.

The fitted python black dress reminded me of a green version Sarah Jessica Parker wore two years ago.

Nicole added a black fur bolero, Fred Leighton jewels and Manolo Blahnik kitten heels to complete her look.

Going back to the green version, I would have loved Nicole in that version.

Despite looking slightly uncomfortable on the red carpet, this is a great look for Nicole. I would’ve lost some of those jewels though, as they slightly over power her look.

Which Was Your Favourite Nicole Kidman Awards Season Look?

Nicole Kidman gave us a few glimpses that the ‘old’ Nicole is back to loving fashion during Awards Season.

I fell in love with her at the 2011 Grammy Awards wearing Jean Paul Gaultier Couture.

Not only was it her best look of Awards Season imo, it was her best look for me since the 2007 Oscars.

Nicole Kidman In Christian Dior – 2011 Oscars

My honest immediate reaction to Nicole Kidman’s Christian Dior Spring 2009 Couture gown at the 2011 Oscars was dislike.

After looking at her white bustier column gown with silver embroidered details a few more times, I think it’s growing on me.

I don’t love it, but there is something about it that’s keeping me interested.

Had this gown been in a deep purple colour like Natalie Portman’s gown I think I would’ve been persuaded to love it.

I think the major problem is that Nicole isn’t really selling the look.

The Australian actress continues to have a love affair with Pierre Hardy heels. On this occasion she opted for a coral peep-toe sandal.

More From The 2011 Independent Spirit Awards

Anne Heche wore D&G to the 2011 Independent Spirit Awards.

It’s one of the beachy looks at the event which I actually like.

Jimmy Choo heels and Irene Neuwirth completed her look.

When I saw Nicole Kidman wearing this L’Wren Scott red lace dress to this event I said to myself that she’s saving herself for the main event.  Fingers crossed.

Great dress and even better shoes.

Kerry Washington is wearing a delightful mis-mash of Dolce & Gabbana prints. I would love to try this look, but I’m not sure I could pull it off quite so well.

A leopard print clutch and Sergio Rossi red suede ‘Lola’ pumps completed her look. Read More…
