Nicole Kidman: 'I've Been Known to Be the Party Girl of All Party Girls'

You’ll often spot Nicole Kidman doing the regal and glamorous thing, or being all mysterious and elegant. But flat-out sexy? It’s not typically her scene — until now. For her second round of ads for Jimmy Choo, the actress channels 60s screen siren Brigitte Bardot, strapping on her highest heels and teasing her hair sky-high for some sultry shots.

Far from the icy beauty of her upcoming role as Princess Grace of Monaco, the making-of video (below) shows Kidman warm and sultry underneath a voluminous blonde, banged wig.

In the ad, she waxes rhapsodic about the shoes she poses in and admits her friends are hitting her up for a pair of Choos. Not surprisingly, her favorite pair is named “Sunday” (just like her daughter!) and she shares she’s never been afraid to wear heels, even at her statuesque 5-foot-11.

A little more surprising? The mischief she gets up to in those heels. “I like to have the luxury of putting on something really high, because I just feel sexier,” she says, adding, “if I’m in the mood, I’m the girl that will dance on the table with a snake.”

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?

Nicole Kidman Wears Anne Hathaway's Rumored Abandoned Oscars Gown

When we saw Nicole Kidman glide down the the Cannes red carpet in this striking ivory lace Valentino Haute Couture gown, we thought for a moment we were seeing the best. Fashion Faceoff. Ever.

Then we realized: This dress hadn’t been worn before. In fact, it had reportedly rather famously been unworn by Anne Hathaway, who was said to have had it all lined up for the Oscars before ditching it at the last moment for a pale pink Prada column.

PHOTOS: See all the unbelievable Cannes fashion in one place!

Hathaway’s decision to change Oscar gowns was so last minute that Valentino even sent out an announcement that she would be wearing the look before she hit the Oscars red carpet, prompting the Best Supporting Actress winner to release a remorseful statement. And though everyone kissed and made up, we couldn’t help but feel a little hurt that we’d never see the lovely look on the red carpet.

Fortunately Kidman came through for us, continuing her streak of knockout Cannes looks by donning the elegant, embellished confection to the premiere of Nebraska — and looking amazing while doing so. Jaw-dropping dangling earrings and a Princess Grace-approved sideswept chignon completed the look.

Tell us: What do you think of the gown? Should Hathaway have worn it to the Oscars?
