Is Nicole Kidman's Wrist Décor Insane, Or Are We For Thinking So?

First things first: Nicole Kidman looks unbelievable in this jaw-dropping cutout halter gown, which she wore to accept an award for Best Global Actress at China’s Huading Image Awards. For someone who normally prefers prim, buttoned-up ensembles (sometimes literally), we give the statuesque star major style snaps for stepping outside her comfort zone and looking so good doing it.

Next order of business: How do we feel about the giant wrist floaties that accompany the dress? It’s a little difficult to see what’s going on with them, but they appear to be giant drapey bracelets that connect to the dress in the back via a thin strap — like a shrug, but lower and less likely to keep you warm. On one hand, they’re definitely high fashion, on the other, they’re sort of superfluous on a dress that bares so much skin.

We don’t want to DQ Kidman from our “best dressed” list on a technicality like funky wrist sleeves, so we need to get your take on them before we make our final call. Are floppy fabric bracelets the new black?
