May 25, 2017 Runway To Red Carpet

Nicole Kidman In Chanel – amfAR Gala Cannes

Posted by Rachel Watkins

Nicole Kidman has been on a chic streak of BDOTW success at the Cannes Film Festival, so my hopes were high for her entrance at the amfAR Gala Cannes on Thursday (May 25).

While she did take us on a flight of fancy in a Chanel Couture Pre-Fall 2017 gown that didn’t skimp on the feathered frou, this heavier look won’t rank as one of my top picks for her at Cannes.

With the sharply bold shoulder, the dress featured an intense silhouette that walked a line of darker mystere than her previous looks. That’s perfectly fine, but not when styled with such a severe bun that led to an ageing effect.

The pink belt did help lighten the mood, with Harry Winston jewels rounding out the look.

    This is awesome. She’s so diverse Nicole, not always my style but always offering something unexpected. I love the hairstyle and everything about this look.

      I agree!!! ???

    Massive no to this.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen her with a more unflattering hairstyle. It’s just terrible!

    The dress itself is completely blah.

    I wish she had’ve gone for a sculptural Stephane Rolland moment. Alas…

    Weird but good weird…I think she always has fun when getting dressed…Nicole is the absolute queen of Cannes this year.

    where can I see this collection online? I can’t find it anywhere.

      It’s online everywhere, just with runway pics instead of the lookbook type pic used above, but it’s the same collection.

    Love it and love the sleek hair it keeps the look from becoming messy. Her makeup is flawless!

    This is superb! I’m almost certain that most other people will look ridiculous in this but usual, Nicole wears it like a pro. One of my favorites from this event…

    Its just too much and ends up looking heavy and blah, even with the feathers and pink belt. Sadly, I just cant like this or the hair.

  10. Caroline May 25, 2017 at 10:36 pm #

    I actually adore this.

  11. TeaAtTwo May 25, 2017 at 8:54 pm #

    I don’t really care for the dress.

  12. Andrea May 25, 2017 at 8:54 pm #

    I think the dress is beautiful but the hair ruined everything.

    There is a chic muscle here
    Another bold look from Ms Kidman

    Terrible hair – hard to look past that.

  15. meme May 25, 2017 at 8:13 pm #

    this looks like a costume.

  16. Alina May 25, 2017 at 7:59 pm #

    The hairstyle is horrible. It ruins the entire outfit which could have been great on her.

  17. Catarina May 25, 2017 at 7:50 pm #

    Oh my god, that hair… it’s a big no.

  18. Nat39 May 25, 2017 at 7:49 pm #

    The severe bun is so aging indeed, the design looks overworked, and the pink belt makes no sense. It doesn’t look very her, she could’ve done better.

  19. JHH May 25, 2017 at 7:48 pm #

    The hair style ruins this.

  20. Chris May 25, 2017 at 7:29 pm #

    I don’t like this. I hoped for her to end her Cannes run with a bang. Not with a heavy black Chanel and bad hair.
