Fashion designers have apparently been all in a tizzy about the lack of stylish leading ladies set to headline this year’s Cannes Film Festival. If the rumors are true, however, one jury member is poised to change all that. And without swaths of other Hollywood femmes competing for the limelight, it’ll be a great chance for her to bring her A-game to the red carpet. So, what should Nicole Kidman wear? Here are our picks.
Like Audrey Tautou, Cannes’ Mistress of Ceremonies, Kidman used to front campaigns for Chanel No. 5, so a trip to Karl Lagerfeld’s atelier could certainly be in order. Recently, however, the actress has favored American designers like Oscar de la Renta, Vera Wang, and L’Wren Scott. In fact, she’s worn so many of Scott’s gowns lately (to the Oscars, to galas, to premieres) we’re not sure there are any left over for Cannes!
Whatever designer she chooses, though, it’s safe to say she’ll stick to her usual MO of clean, slim-fitting silhouettes with a healthy dose of glitz and a dash of vintage flair.
Below, see 8 looks we’d love to see in France next month and watch the videos for more of Kidman’s red carpet style:
UPDATE: The rumors were true! It has been announced that Kidman will indeed be joining the Film Festival’s jury this year. Stay tuned for our red carpet coverage starting May 15 — we’ll be waiting with baited breath to see what she picks.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
