Nicole Kidman in gold Vera Wang at the Grammys: simple & pretty?

Is it weird that I think Nicole Kidman actually gets a kick out of coming to these music awards shows with her husband? She’s done the red carpet and awards-show circuit so many times in Hollywood, it must be relaxing for her to come to the Grammys where there’s no pressure, and she just gets to sit around and sing along to her favorite music. That must be why she always comes to the Grammys (and all of the country music awards shows) – she actually likes being there. And it shows! Nicole looked very relaxed (for her!) in this sparkly gold Vera Wang gown. I’ve been bitching about the whole “half-unlined gown skirt” thing for a few months now, but I actually think this is okay on Nicole. She has great legs, and it’s the Grammys. It’s acceptable, and I always love her in gold. One complaint: the middle-part. Blah.

Here’s Carrie Underwood in Roberto Cavalli. She looks like a pageant girl. Always. Forever. Too much makeup, big blonde hair, fake smile. I would have liked the dress more if it wasn’t two pageant-y black gowns fighting to live together. Either make the whole gown like the bodice, or make the whole gown that lacy stuff.

Natasha Bedingfield in EMERSON by Jackie Fraser-Swan gown from the Spring/Summer 2013 collection. HATE IT. That’s not some weird beige fabric at her waist either – that’s her actual flesh. For that alone, I hate it.

    Stunning look for Nicole. Love the shorter hair, really suits her face!

  2. QQ says:

    This wig not only looked TERRIBLE in HD motion but her head looked like a melon

  3. bns says:

    What could’ve been without the botox Nicole. Sigh. Stunning dress though.

    Nicole had been in Austraila for two weeks with her hubby and family, and the break seemed to do her good after all the award shows. On the red carpet she and Keith seemed so playful and relaxed and the pressure off her at this event. Plus he was just presenting, not performing, so he could relax also.

  5. Dhavynia says:

    Carrie always looks the same and always has a bitch face to compliment her attitude.
    Maybe she dresses like a pageant girl because she thinks shes Ms Country Music
    She can hate Swiftty all she wants but at least TS changes it all the time and dresses her age.

  6. JudyK says:

    UGH on Nicole Kidman. Just UGH.

    I don’t think this woman has any style or clue about how to dress. And I hate her stringy hair.

  7. serena says:

    Either her make-up artist put too much foundation on her or it’s bad tanning. Anyway dress is ok, but Nicole needs to seriously leave her face alone.

  8. Dea says:

    That color does not fit her plastic face. Boring for me.

  9. JL says:

    Nicole; just get an ice dress that is as frozen as your face. As for that stringy hair – i wouldn’t go to the corner market looking like that.

  10. epiphany says:

    I couldn’t really concentrate on Nicole’s dress as I was too distracted by the fact that she can no longer open her mouth normally, ala Cher. It’s stuck in a permanent “O.”

  11. jinni says:

    She looks like a female version of her husband in that second pic. Wow, couples really do start looking alike after a while.

  12. MG says:

    Carrie has the worst style EVER! Just once I would love to see her in something amazing and without the big country hair.

  13. bea says:

    Why is everyone so infatuated with these see-thru to your legs gowns? It’s not really a good look, in fact it’s pretty awkward.

    NK looks good….but a little too monochromatic. Not a pale as she usually does, which is an improvement.

  14. lucy2 says:

    I like Nicole’s except for the sheer part.
    I kind of like Carrie’s dress, but agree about the pageant-y hair and makeup, as always.
    That red dress is horrible. It makes it her look like a big girl (which she’s not) in a too small dress.

  15. elceibeno08 says:

    I don’t like any of dresses here in this post. Nicole looks too plain, her hair looks like a cow licked it. Carrie’s dress has too much fabric from the knees down. Oh, that red dress is hideous. the proportions are off. The split in the front of the skirt looks like two panels of a fancy shower curtain.

  16. Micki says:

    I’d like Nicole dress more if it was not transperent.But I like the colour on her.

  17. Dree says:

    I am crazy about Nicole’s dress. I just adore it. I totally agree about the disappointing middle parting, though.

  18. mia girl says:

    What in the Disney-Princess-Electrical-Parade Hell was that dress Underwood wore during her performance?!!

  19. Azurea says:

    I can’t think why Nicole wants her hair to be the color of cat vomit.

  20. Isa says:

    Can we think of another adjective for “pagenty?” Unless they’re dressed like honey boo boo I don’t see it as a bad thing.
    I like carries dress for once but it’s definitely not sparkly enough for a pagant. Her hair is blonde but its not really big.

  21. Apsutter says:

    She needs to stop tanning and change her hair color. She looks like a gross beige mess

  22. Tazina says:

    Nicole is not botoxing; she looks her age. She needs some highlights. Her hair color looks like it came off the drug store shelf. The hair, the skin, the dress – all the same color.

    Carrie’s dress is stunning. However, her makeup is too harsh.

  23. G says:

    Ugh. This nude underwear thing has got to stop. In addition, if you’re going to wear a dress like that,the length should be tailored.

    Nicole’s hair looks a million times better, than that granny hairband thing she was doing a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately, It’s so overworked, like her face, it’s just doesn’t seem natural.

  24. Thiajoka says:

    Natasha does NOT have the slim shoulders to carry off that style of sleeve on her gown. The dress is gorgeous and no offense meant to her because I don’t mean that she’s overweight–I’m petite but I have linebacker shoulders, too, and wouldn’t be able to pull that off either.

    Nicole’s dress is gorgeous but I do like her better with darker hair.

  25. lylaooo says:

    i´ve never like Carrie makeup, always looks like the face and her body are in diferent colors. but on this photos it doesnt so im glad it doesnt

  26. d says:

    No one looks good here. Nicole shouldn’t wear that colour and she needs to stop flat-ironing her hair. I don’t know…her style and look these days…not so good.
    Natasha’s dress is horrid.
    And yah, Carrie is always prom girl. Wierd.

  27. Turtle Dove says:

    Nic looks great and relaxed, as you said. She’s probably the bell of the ball on these red carpets, so it must be fun; plus, the pressures off her because the night isn’t about her but Keith. Kinda cool that she’s not all diva-me-me-me.

  28. Amelia says:

    The biggest problem with Nicole Kidman, other than the fact she has rendered herself expressionless with Botox, is that, despite breast implants, she still looks like a boy. She is lanky, has no discernible waistline, and strange legs. Plus this color of dress does nothing for her.

    Overall, I think the cut and color of this dress is not flattering. Quit sticking needles into your face NK. And you bought those boobs, now show them off!

  29. Aqua says:

    I think when Nicole goes to the Grammys she sees her role as a wife and a supporter of her husband and not necessarily as a Hollywood power couple.She just want to go and have a good time.

  30. Jen says:

    To my eye, Nicole resembles a transvestite. Pre-boob job, her breasts always reminded me of over developed male pectoral muscles. The wide spacing between the small breasts seems odd. Her face is looking increasingly theatrical, unnatural and masculine.

  31. Blu says:

    Seriously, Keith looks more feminine than his wife. Weird.
