Nicole Kidman in autumnal Erdem for Paris Fashion Week: lovely or jacked?

These are some new photos of Nicole Kidman in Paris yesterday. She arrived for Paris Fashion Week a few days ago, although she hasn’t been spotted front row at any of the shows, as far as I know. Instead of checking out the latest lines (Dior?), Nicole was shilling Tod’s. I had forgotten that Nicole was associated with Tod’s – didn’t she appear in their ads at some point? Or am I just hallucinating that? Anyway, I can guarantee that Kidman didn’t just show up in Paris for the hell of it – she was likely paid to appear at the launch of Tod’s new signature collection of handbags and accessories. If I was Nic, I would have asked to be paid in purses. God, I love Tod’s purses. Anyway, Nicole was the hostess/lady of honor at the dinner/event. And when she spoke to the press, she mentioned her love of French bread:

All Hollywood actresses are taught that carbohydrates are the enemy. But Nicole Kidman admits she can’t resist French bread whenever she visits Paris. Despite her super slim figure, the mother-of-four surprised fashionistas when she revealed her love for baguettes at a Paris Fashion Week party last night.

Kidman, 44, flew into the City of Lights specially for the launch of Tod’s new Signature Collection. The Italian luxury brand’s chief Diego Della Valle had invited Kidman to be the guest of honour at the lavish bash at the Italian Embassy.

The Australian certainly looked chic as the event as she arrived in an Erdem Pre-Fall 2012 Ivy Dress and pointed stilettos.

Before the party, she popped into the Laperouse restaurant for dinner and hopefully got her baguette fix.

She said at the Tod’s party: ‘It’s gorgeous to be in Paris. I just love bread, which I know in this day and age everyone says, “Don’t eat the bread.”‘

But given her super slim figure, Kidman could probably get away with a few baguettes. Also at the party was Margherita Missoni, Anna Wintour and Jade Jagger. Kidman is currently filming The Railway Man with Colin Firth in Scotland.

I’m kind of meh on her Erdem outfit/dress. It’s so… autumnal. If she had worn the dress in October, I think I would have liked it more. Plus, you know I don’t care for lace stuff.

Should we talk about her marble-like forehead or her lips? She’s still jacking the hell out of everything. It’s sad.

    Good call on the dress being too autumnal–I think it would have worked better in the fall. (Kaiser, I love that you actually used the word autumnal, by the way. I love your writing)!

    And I think her body is looking pretty good–not too skeletal, a little more filled out. But yeah, the face looks shiny and tweaky. Sigh… Is she ever gonna learn?

  2. Lolaluvsu2 says:

    Her face looks better but the dress is not my cup of tea.

  3. Jessica says:

    Is it just me or does she look preggo?? (I know that she isnt but geeze – did her love of french bread make it look like this?)

    • EBitch says:

      She kinda always has that little belly…like emaciated children, you know? So sad.

      • arlie says:

        Why are you knocking her little belly? I’m built the same way. Some of us are just made that way. When you have slim hips, the stomach has to go somewhere, so it usually sticks out a bit. Jeez! Rounded tummies used to be considered attractive — just look at the old masters’ paintings. There is nothing wrong with Kidman’s body (especially when compared with Waity Kate Middleton’s). Her face is another story.

  4. Eve says:

    That upper lip…my god, that upper lip…

  5. Marjalane says:

    Hmmmmm, something about the top of her hair looks odd to me, like she has an extra top piece on it? and yeah, frozen fivehead AND pit stains?

    I’m glad Nicole Kidman gave Keith Urban those cute girls, but I really just don’t like her.

  6. sup says:

    i love the dress. her hair looks a bit dry though. wasn’t there a blind item about her saying her hair was falling out? is that fake hair?

  7. spitfire says:

    I thought she looked preggers, too. Or maybe it’s the three glasses of bubbly in me…Dunno.

  8. Aiobhan says:

    Yeah, this dress is not season appropriate but it is still a nice dress. Her face though is a complete disaster. Why?

  9. Happymom says:

    That dress is not cut well on the bottom, or she needed to go up a size-hence why she’s looking like she’s got a pooch.

  10. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    Nicole looks good – when with Tom she looked very stressed, Keith must treat her well.

  11. Nev says:

    she looks great…not so jacked actually….I think she is getting her fashion mojo back!

  12. Esmom says:

    Still jacked. Maybe not quite as bad as other periods but it still looks to me like she has to expend tremendous amounts of energy to contort her mouth into a smile. I can’t imagine what it’s like not to be able to move your face. Ick.

  13. Agnes says:

    meh on the dress. she looks great, but a little tweaky.

  14. Loralei says:

    The neck always reveals the true age.

  15. mimi says:

    She is beautiful again! That gorgeous facial features!

    The dress is so wrong. It’s something I would dress a senior citizen. Someone who is 80 years old perhaps.

    But the beautiful face is back!

  16. Bobby the K says:

    She’s only 44? What will she look like after another 20 years of this?

  17. paola says:

    I can’t believe how horrible Nicole’s hair has become! So thin and fair, split ends, not healthy looking at all

    • Jen34 says:

      I believe she does The Keratin Straightening Treatment, which is the same as the Brazilian Blowout. I’ve had it done 4 times over a 2 year period, and it starts to damage and thin out your hair. One more treatment for the summer, and I’m going back to my curls.

  18. Jayvee says:

    It is almost autumn in Australia where Nicole lives. It is the equivalent of September in the U.S.A. Maybe that explains it?

  19. salamanca says:

    She looks preggo or bloated in the belly?

  20. Cinesnatch says:

    Her face has looked worst, but Third Lip is definitely peaking from behind the curtain.

  21. strah says:

    I just wish she would go back the the curly red hair, it was so pretty.

  22. original sandy says:

    her hair looks so dry, it used to be so nice.

  23. dena says:

    Holy crap, how TALL is she?

  24. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    Can we all agree that she should go back to being a read head?

  25. Lady Satan says:

    Every time I see someone this ‘toxed I have to wonder what is going to become of their face in 10 or 20 years.

    When you think about it, Botox actually paralyses the muscles to prevent movement, which in turn prevents wrinkles. Muscles that are paralysed tend to atrophy …

    Will we be seeing more and more people with permanently immobile faces, or will the skin over the atrophied muscle just droop like melted candle wax?


  26. Maria says:

    ohmegod the sweaty armpits the sweaty armpits… she should put some botox there instead in her forehead. ugh.

  27. Mando says:

    She’s definitely frozen, but I think she’s looking better lately. Softer, somehow. Maybe she gained a couple of pounds and it went to her face?

  28. taxi says:

    In pics 2,3,& 4 she’s got gray/white roots.

  29. Mira says:

    Not loving the dress, but she looks healthy and happy!!!Sure, she’s older-looking but I think it will actually help her get those interesting films roles for mature women.

  30. mememe says:

    I think Nicole is a decent actress but her hair has looked really unhealthy lately. Dry, brittle, and bad coloring.
