Nicole Kidman in bronze, metallic Ralph Lauren in Cannes: gorgeous or rough?

As we talked about last week, Nicole Kidman’s Botox-face was looking pretty marble-like throughout her photo calls and premieres in Cannes. So far, Radar is one of the few sites (that I’ve seen) who are really calling her out on it. These are some more photos of Nicole in Cannes, at Friday night’s premiere of Hemingway & Gellhorn. She posed on the red carpet with her costars, Rodrigo Santoro and a muttonchopped Clive Owen. Once again, Nicole’s hair isn’t doing her any favors.

Nicole’s premiere dress was Ralph Lauren. Now… beyond the Botox, I have been enjoying Nicole’s Cannes looks a great deal. She was going through a super-frilly, lacy phase for a while which I absolutely loathed, so I’m glad to see her putting in some effort to give us lots of different “looks” in Cannes. I’m not crazy about this Ralph Lauren gown, but it’s interesting on Nicole. And I think Nicole heard us talking about her bolt-ons, because her nips aren’t assaulting everyone at this premiere.

More photos from Cannes… here’s Kristen Stewart after the Cosmopolis premiere, in Dolce & Gabbana.

Andie MacDowell in unknown black dress. Dislike the dress. Here’s the real question – Andie MacDowell: Good genes or good surgeon? Her face looks different, but she’s achieved a sort of agelessness without looking Botoxy or “worked on”. Andie is also one of the few women that gives me hair-envy.

Camila Alves in Marchesa. I’m surprised Eva Longoria didn’t get to wear this fug frou-frou monstrosity.

    OMG, her face has too much botox.45 years old and so fresh faced, not a single line or wrinkles

  2. 2Park5 says:

    All week she has been bringing it

  3. brin says:

    Looks like Nicole’s hairstylist ran off before the comb-out.

  4. FeverDream says:

    #1 – Whatever Nicole Kidman is doing to her face, she needs to stop it.

    #2 – Whatever Kristen Stewart has on as foundation and eye shadow is I want it. How do these girls look so dewy and natural with their makeup?

    #3 Marchesa needs to end now.

  5. two_seconds_ago says:

    I’m sorry, but the highlight of this post was clearly Rodrigo…I mean, just look at him!!! *swoons*

  6. TruthTella says:

    How can she think her lips look good though???

  7. Bad Gal Addiction says:

    I’m sorry, but her face looks busted. Those cheek implants are hideous.

    And now I do myself a favor and just keep staring at the hot guys surrounding her…

  8. Aiobhan says:

    I will no longer be looking at Nicole’s face because it makes me sad; the dress ( and the body in the dress) looks amazing.

    Camilla A looks miserable. I would too in that ugly ass dress.

    Andie and Julianne Moore drink virgin’s blood and eat babies’ souls to stay young. Or they have great genes and lots of money to assist the good genes. I believe it is the former.

    • lamamu says:

      I agree about Andie. There are women who age well and gracefully. I don’t think she lives in Hollywood (Georgia?), which has to help in terms of how she perceives herself and her own beauty.

      On a side note: Nico K looks killer. (Yes, yes, I know she isn’t aging as naturally as Andie) Lately, she’s seems more like her edgy self that I loved in the 90′s.

  9. jr says:

    The twilight girl’s get up is hideous. Her make up looks good tho..

    • Andie B says:

      For some reason I just don’t like the girl from Twilight..just can’t put my finger on it. Love Nicole’s dress, but as others have said, she needs to stop the botox etc. Andie McDowell looks amazing. I think Clive Owen is dyeing his hair..don’t have a big problem with that (he’s still hot), but it could be made to look more natural.

  10. marie says:

    She doesn’t look bad from the neck down, everything above that is awful. What happened to her hair, and she seriously needs to lay off the Botox..Also Andie has always given me hair envy, so not fair..

  11. Mew says:

    She should consider her makeup really, that’s what makes her look so harsh and even old. A bit more contouring and not as “I drowned in a flour bag” look could help her a lot.

  12. maria says:

    omg, that hair is baaaad…. how much nicer would a sleek, low pony have looked?…. sheesh….. I agree with hair envy and Andie….she must be at least 50% grey by now but the colorist she used does an incredible job at not keeping her ‘too dark’. also, most women’s hair past 45 thins out more and more..although people with gorgeous hair to begin with fare better…hers still looks quite full. sigh..no fair…..

  13. Happymom says:

    Andie is gorgeous-but that dress is too low cut-not flattering. The Marchesa dresses just crack me up. I guess a lot of these women wear them to try and curry favor with Weinstein-but they always look like figure skating monstrosities.

  14. katie says:

    They all look terrible! Nicole and Andi are looking a little old and they just aren’t.

  15. serena says:

    I like this dress on Nicole. But her body is not the problem here.
    It’s her face.
    Oh and I think that she should cover her forhead.

  16. mia girl says:

    Why does looking at Nicole Kidman make me so sad? I like her, and think she is a very talented actress but her face is loosing all of its “realness”. If she looks like ths now, she’s going to be incresingly scary as she hits 50,55, 60 etc.

  17. Reece says:

    The dress on Nicole is great but the face…she used to be so pretty to me.

  18. Kimbob says:

    Wow….it’s just sad…really, really SAD Nicole Kidman is DEATHLY, MORBIDLY afraid of even ONE WRINKLE showing at her age. Every time I see her in photos nowadays I always get the feeling Nicole’s idea of beauty is nothing short of PERFECTION…..and she always falls so short.

    I mean, look at Andie MacDowell…crow’s feet and all she just looks SO MUCH BETTER, naturally beautiful than Nicole and her flat-ironed face!!!

    It’s like a woman’s conception/ideas about beauty seem to RADIATE from them…and it shows! Andie’s like, yes..I’m older….so WHAT?! But I am still beautiful, and here I AM, imperfections and all…not gonna hide ‘em, and it just ADDS to her beauty/persona.

    Then you look at Nicole, and her pitiful/pathetic idea of beauty….HIDE EVERY DAMN IMPERFECTION….I must NOT capitulate to aging at whatever cost….and it just all SHOWS EVEN MORE, and is so sad to look at her…her idea of what is beautiful emanates more from HIDING, covering up, FORCING than revealing….and it’s very painful to see what she’s morphed into. I just wish she’d EMBRACE who and what she is, and her beauty would show. But…because she is so constricted…this is what we are forced to look at. Poor, poor Nicole.

    Sorry for my long blog here, but after seeing pics of Nicole, then Andie…the difference is SHOCKING.

    Oh, and Camilla Alves, normally a drop-dead gorgeous woman…..looks… handsome(?)here. Not good beauty day for Camilla.

    • mia girl says:

      kimbob – Rant is fine – as I posted above, I feel the same – though you articulated it much better. WHY is she doing this? WHY doesn’t ANYBODY around her stop her? Can we get Meryl Streep (as the prime example of an actress to embrace aging) to stage an intervention?

  19. Alti says:

    Nicole looks so much better with red hair or shorter blond hair and curls (f.e. with the hairstyle “above”).

    Her straight blonde hair plus “big” botox-dead-forehead looks terrible!

    I don´t get it. Why all this botox?
    Once she was such a beauty.

  20. alliekat says:

    I am pretty sure Nicole Kidman is our modern day Gloria Swanson. And why does she keep throwing her shoulders back like that? It’S like she’s gritting her teeth and saying chin up, tits out girls!

  21. Luise says:

    Eeeeeewwww!!! Miss Gum Pillow Face!

  22. the original bellaluna says:

    Love the dress, but it looks HEAVY.

    Camilla looks tired or like she’s got two black eyes.

    Kristen looks surly as usual.

  23. Esmom says:

    Nicole looks like she has to strain every muscle to get herself to smile. Scary. And yes, sad.

    As for people asking who no one has intervened and convinced her to tone down the procedures, I’m guessing like most celebs she is surrounded by yes-people. Seriously who would want to be the one to step up and call her out on something like that?

    • Happymom says:

      Also-I think they basically live in LA (despite how she tries to spin living in Nashville) and so many of the women there have that same plastic-y look. It’s like the Land of the Living Dead. I think when you’re surrounded by that, and you’re obviously insecure about your looks, and you’re in a youth obsessed industry, you don’t realize how crazy it is.

  24. ZenB!tch says:

    1. Nicole looks like her hair is half done but straightening that monstrosity only to curl it back up with a large iron takes time. Looks like the stylist ran out of time and tried to pin it.

    2. That dress makes Nicole look like she has armpit fat.

    3. Kristen – one girl’s “dewy” is another girl’s greasy and drunk – I think she looks greasy and drunk.

    4. Andie – I think she’s had something done but not botox.

    5. The thing I’ve learned on celebitchy is that botox is the enemy. It causes under eye wrinkes and greasy foreheads. I can do both without help. Well my eyes are too puffy with allergies to wrinkle at the moment.

  25. riri says:

    Nicole is beautiful and I love her curls.

    The color might be wrong, but people pick on her while ALL actresses in LA do botox and I actuallu think she stopped with the botox.

    I think she looks absolutely beautiful and that has nothing to do with botox.

    I think the hair is what did the trick here which is why she looks so much better, like the old absolutely beautiful Nicole.

    Kristen Strewart can’t dress herself for anything, though her makeup is flawless and a work of art.

    Andie was always so pretty and so sweet. I like her a lot. I wish I knew what she puts on her hair and how she looks so ageless.

  26. Jayna says:

    Nicole has eyes that haven’t been worked on, lips more normal, smile lines, no fat filler cheeks. She looks good. The forehead thing is the odd look. With such a big forehead she really needs to hide it or soften it with swept-over long side bangs, and maybe she went a little too heavy on the pale makeup. Love the dress, not the hair.

  27. Snowpea says:

    It’s obvious to me that Nicole has a strange dysmorphia concerning her face. She has looked unnatural and waxy for a long time now and it’s not doing her any favours. She WAS a naturally stunning, kooky, offbeat girl in her day but that’s all gone now.

    Google BMX Bandits and have a look at her as a cute teen in her first flick filmed in Sydney. To die for! ; )

  28. JW says:

    She always looks amazing in 20s flapper styles……Kidman is looking good nowadays!!! Yay

  29. JudyK says:

    I LOVE Andie MacDowell’s dress.

  30. lucy2 says:

    Don’t like the hair, but like Nicole’s dress.
    Kristen looks like an idiot.
    Camilla’s dress is ice skatery awful.

  31. anonymoose says:

    Andie McDowell looks GORGEOUS and radiant, despite the sternum shower curtain she is wearing, the center parted hair, and the heavy horseshoe around her neck. These accoutrements working against her can’t diminish her beauty. Go Andie! Show ‘em how it’s done!

  32. deep says:

    I didn’t read all of the comments but I think Nicole looks great..very couture from head to toe. I think her hair looks very “runway”. I like it. I think she looks beautiful as always. Flawless. Her hair was totally fixed like that one purpose. IMO

  33. NOT BUYING IT IN NASHVILLE says:

    In her other photos at Cannes, it is clear that Nicole never heard of PETALS. Really, I don’t need to see your nips. You had a boob job Nicole, you and 18 million other women in El-Lay.

    Her face is permanently ruined. She is the Michael Jackson Heir to the Plastic Surgery Throne.
