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?

Nicole Kidman may be serving on the Cannes jury, but a day and a half into the French film festival, we’ve already delivered our verdict on her style: She’s guilty of looking awesome.

In her first three looks at Cannes, she’s knocked it out of the sartorial park — and set a high bar for all other Cannes-going starlets to reach.

First up, for a juror cocktail party, she wore a head-to-toe Dior look that epitomizes what every girl hopes she looks like in her LBD — from the perfect fit of the sequin sheath to the sassy-yet-classy heels and clutch and the subtle sparkle of her Cathy Waterman hoops.

If, like us, you couldn’t get enough of all the gorgeous fashion at the White House Correspondents Dinner, you’re in luck: Bloomberg and Vanity Fair hosted an after-party, giving us a glimpse at a few more head-turning looks.

Nicole Kidman offset her strawberry blonde hair with a crewneck periwinkle Emilio Pucci gown with graphic, sparkling embellishments, plus a Bottega Veneta clutch. Olivia Wilde had a flapper moment in a chocolate pleated Valentino gown with ruffles at the hips and a lace headband.

And perhaps best of all, Paul Rudd accessorized his tuxedo with the retro mustache and shaggy hair he’s growing out for the Anchorman sequel, proving that ’70s style wasn’t confined only to the ladies.

Tell us: Which look was your favorite: Kidman’s, Wilde’s or Rudd’s?

The Look Everyone's Loving This Week: Nicole Kidman's Embroidered Gown

Until late Friday afternoon, it looked like Jennifer Hudson (in her skintight white dress) was going to earn the top style spot, but then Nicole Kidman just barely edged her out.

Hudson shouldn’t feel too bad, though. After all, it’s tough to beat out an Oscar de la Renta gown like the one Kidman wore to an Omega gala in Vienna, Austria. The dress, which nabbed over 20,000 votes and counting, is a black-and-nude creation with floral embroidery.
