With her new film Grace of Monaco opening the Cannes Film Festival Wednesday — and with last year’s unbelievable Cannes style streak behind her — we knew Nicole Kidman was going to bring her fashion A-game to this year’s opening night festivities. And she delivered as expected. From day to night, she kept things sophisticated and stately — we bet Grace Kelly would have been impressed.

Nicole Kidman Goes Brunette: Are You Loving Her New Look?

Nicole Kidman has famously been a curly redhead and a glamorous blonde (just check out her latest Jimmy Choo ads). And now the actress has just changed her mane again, transforming into a brunette for her upcoming film.

Kidman debuted a rich dark shade on set of her new movie Strangerland, which she’s busy filming in Sydney. We highly doubt it’s permanent since it’s for a role — even if you’re loving this look on her, we wouldn’t get too attached. But we’re curious to see how she’ll style her deep brown tresses if she hits the red carpet at the Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday with husband Keith Urban. (That’s a big “if” since, of course, since she’s shooting her movie across the world.) Read More

We know Nicole Kidman‘s ads for Jimmy Choo are meant to be all about the accessories, but we’d say that her rocking bod is at least tied for top billing. She shows it off (again!) in a thigh-grazing blazer — and nothing else — for her latest round of ads for the designer label.

The ads, shot by Will Vanderperre, echo the rocker vibe of the boots she’s wearing (there’s lots of smoldering glances and climbing on motorcycles in heels here). “It was fun to embrace a more rebellious spirit for Jimmy Choo,” Kidman said in a statement. “We listened to a lot of great rock music to get in the mood for the shoot.”

The actress, 46, has done “glamorous sexy” for her ads before, but in the latest ones, she pulls out all the stops, giving model face and legs for days that would make Barbie jealous.

What do you think of Kidman’s ads? Anything surprise you?

In our weekly roundup of the looks that are gaining fashion ground (and the ones losing their style street cred), we saw some super-romantic prints, unusual new neckwear and statement jewelry that wasn’t making as much of an impact this week.

We are huge fans of menswear in the PEOPLE StyleWatch offices, especially when it looks as good as it does on Emma Watson. And we’re equally big fans of fashion risk-takers. This week, those two worlds combined on three very different stars, all of whom accompanied their suit ensembles with noteworthy neck bows of varying sizes. Let’s discuss, shall we?

Oscars Gown Final Showdown: Anne Hathaway vs. Nicole Kidman -- Pick Your Favorite!

The Showdown: Anne Hathaway in Armani Privé (2009) vs. Nicole Kidman in Balenciaga (2007)
The Editor’s Pick: Anne Hathaway
Who Made the Call?: Andrea Lavinthal, Style and Beauty Director
Why She Chose It:

I’m on Oscars Gown Bracketology strike. Allow me to explain. Yes, both final contenders look stunning in their respective gowns but I’m still reeling from the early elimination of Michelle Williams in that yellow Vera Wang. This is worse than when the Bachelor sends home the fan favorite mid-season.

I suppose I have to choose between Anne Hathaway and Nicole Kidman, but before I do, I’d like to take a few minutes to highlight what our editors said about Michelle’s gown in previous rounds:

Alex Apatoff, Style News Editor: Michelle Williams’s striking marigold number has made countless best-dressed (and best-ever) lists since the moment she walked onto the red carpet … The dress fit her like a glove, and had just enough drama in the details to make her stand out without overwhelming her petite frame.

Brittany Talarico, Associate Editor: This was Michelle’s first Oscars appearance ever, and I love that she totally went for something bold and fresh. With the vibrant color, ruffled neckline and ruching at the waist, it’s no surprise this design launched the nominee to the top of best dressed lists.

OK, now I’m ready to accept Michelle’s defeat and move on. I was surprised when Nicole’s dramatic red Balenciaga beat out Gwyneth’s now-iconic white Tom Ford (two equally polarizing dresses, but Gwyn’s was such a moment), but I was downright stunned when it also kicked Charlize Theron’s Dior-clad butt. For a minute it looked like Sandra Bullock’s Marchesa would break her winning streak, but with 52% of the votes, Nicole was victorious once more.

The success of Anne’s iridescent Armani Privé gown was easier to predict. It’s glamorous, it’s elegant and even though it weighed 15 pounds, she made it look effortless. “Anne is so lovely and ethereal — she reminds me of the great actresses of Hollywood’s Golden Age,” Giorgio Armani said of the look he created for her. “For this reason I dressed her as a type of fairy-mermaid, pure and sparkling … She looked truly breathtaking.”

Both of these stars are drop-dead gorgeous in their gowns, and I’d be perfectly happy to let it end in a tie. But since that’s apparently not how things work with these brackets, I’m going to give this to Anne by a very narrow margin. I think her shimmering champagne moment is going to stand the test of time for decades to come.


Do you agree with me or should Nicole Kidman win this round? Vote in the Oscars Gown Bracket and check back tomorrow to see who comes out on top!
