Nicole Kidman In Armani Privé – 2019 Critics’ Choice Awards

Fashion Blogger Catherine Kallon features Nicole Kidman In Armani Privé - 2019 Critics' Choice Awards

Nicole Kidman attended the 2019 Critics’ Choice Awards on Sunday (January 13) in Santa Monica, California.

When it comes to sartorial elegance, this Armani Privé Fall 2018 gown is what I expect from someone of Nicole’s stature.

I love how the slim column silhouette is enhanced to somewhat of an hourglass shape with the sculptural detail.

What I don’t like is the hair. It almost overwhelms my love for the gown.

Just picture how stunning this would be with her mohawk-ponytail or her bobby pinned updo.

The hair is feel too beachy for this event. This hairstyle should’ve been saved for the Film Independent Spirit Awards.

A selection of diamond jewels and a Moynat bag completed her look.

    Scalp-down, this is GORGEOUS!

    Honestly, I love the hair here. it has a carefree look to it, which I personally think adds a nice touch. Like someone said, it has a very “oh this old thing?” feel to it. A very Parisian way of approaching it, honestly. It’s not overly thought out, which I guess is the preference to some here. And yet there’s still obvious thought into everything. Plus, it’s the Critic’s Choice Awards, not the Oscars or the Globes for goodness sake. Calm down.

    Speaking of, I wish this had been her Globes look. She always slays in Armani.

    the gown is masterful and made for her body type. too bad the hair didn’t elevate the look, it should have.

      My sentiments exactly.

    I actually love how the hair basically makes it seem like she just threw on something this stunning. J’adore.

    The first thing I said when I saw this was “yuck” because I thought it was a deliberate attempt to make her look cartoonishly out of proportion, then I realised that it’s actually part of the design but there isn’t enough visual distinction between the white part of the dress and the inside of the scultural ruffle. One needed to be a different colour so that it doesn’t give off a Kim K optical illusion.

    A bun and a red lip would’ve made such a huge difference. But she does look elegant the dress is lovely.

    Love the gown, I’m not even bothered by the hair, she looks amazing.

      + 1! The only thing I wish for is a smaller bag.

  8. Amy January 14, 2019 at 2:12 pm #

    I can believe she tried to sabotage such a great gown with that awful hair. I almost feel bad for Armani.
    Absolutely love the dress. Best dressed nominee

    Shame about the hair, because it looks like the best gown of the night, beautiful structure, sharp and modern, love.

    The hair is a letdown, drags the whole look down. I was dying to see someone wear this dress but the hair is just too casual for it.

    Nicole Kidman always gets the best dresses. Must be nice being tall and slender. She can pull off almost any type of dresses. Shame about her hair though. I wish she would get back to her redhead hair. Curly and all.

  12. Caroline January 14, 2019 at 12:35 pm #

    This is one of the best dressed looks of the night but as has been already said, the hair is terrible.

  13. Renne January 14, 2019 at 12:09 pm #

    The dress was one of my favorite on the runway and it deserved a bigger moment than this one. In what universe does this hairstyle go with this elegant dress?

  14. TeaAtTwo January 14, 2019 at 11:46 am #

    Love the gown, love her in the gown but in total agreement about the hairstyle being all wrong for this look.

    She looks so good in that gown, I’m just going to ignore the hair. I do wish this had been paired with a red lip and an updo of course. I’m partial to black + white + red themes

    Nicole always stuns when she chooses Armani Prive. In fact I can’t remember the last time anyone wore an Armani Prive gown and didn’t look great.

    Fantastic from the neck down! She really needs a new hairstylist though. Most of the time, her hair almost ruins her looks.

    Love this H2T

  19. Charlotte January 14, 2019 at 10:57 am #

    I love the dress! And it looks perfect on her.
    But I agree about the hair, it doesn’t work with the dress, same about the bag.
    Great dress, wrong styling.

    • CreoleLady January 14, 2019 at 11:15 am #

      Agree. The dress, divine. The hair, terrible. How to diminish a fab Armani Prive in one easy step.
