Nicole Kidman in orange-red Antonio Berardi in Cannes: Botoxy or beautiful?

Nicole Kidman arrived in Cannes a few days ago, even though her promotional work for The Paperboy didn’t start until today. I guess Nicole just wanted to party and schmooze in the South of France. Maybe she’s hoping to soak up the vibe considering she’s going to be playing Princess Grace of Monaco. The photos of Nicole in the orange-red Antonio Berardi Fall 2012 are from today’s photo call for The Paperboy. Thoughts on Nicole’s dress? I like that she went with a bold color, although I’m not crazy about this particular bold color. The cut and design of the dress is solid, and the tailoring is lovely. My only real complaint is the color, actually.

Also in attendance at the photo call: Lee Daniels (the director), Zac Efron, John Cusack, Matthew McConaughey and Macy Gray.

A few more things about Nicole. One, her Botox-face is still, as ever, ridiculous. I don’t think her forehead or eyebrows moved a centimeter once during the photo call. And her lips- still ridiculous. But really, let’s talk about Nicole’s boobs. I’ve long claimed that shortly after Nicole gave birth to Sunday Rose, she got some implants. I actually have an eloborate conspiracy theory involving Nicole’s bolt-ons, but we don’t need to get into that right now. Let’s just say that there has been photo evidence in the past that indicates to me that Nicole’s tatas are not all real. I believe she got something done, and while I appreciated that she kept them smaller (they look fine on her frame), I’m now wondering if she went back to the surgeon’s office and got some even bigger implants. We’ve gotten emails about this too, and CB and I spent way too much time last night inspecting Nicole’s rack like boob scientists. To the boob laboratory!!!

More photos of Nicole last night in Cannes (her bolt-ons are even more noticeable here).

    Beautiful. She has amazing body.

  2. salamanca says:

    Less botoxy and looks really good. The dress is perfect on her.

    • Maguita says:

      Especially with that color against the blue of the Mediterranean sea, as well as the white of plaza.

      I am tired of sh-tting on Nicole. She looks good, looks like she eased up on the over-botoxing and lip-fillers. She looks lovely and demure but with a bit of an edge. And her bolt-ons, they look like a job VERY well done, understated, and very fitting with her figure.

      In the world of extreme floaters, actresses should take note of how a good knockers job is done. To the best advantage of your figure, and not to look like a bimbo-esque representation of the doll-object.

    • Andie B says:

      She looks great..I’m not wild about the orange colour on her though. Berry colours are great on her. Her boobs are noticeably bigger. I wonder when that happened.

  3. Agnes says:

    i like the orange dress on her, it’s a nice change from her usual palette. the other (cream?) dress is lovely too.

  4. Janet says:

    Love the dress and she is wearing the hell out of it.

  5. brin says:

    Gorgeous dress!

  6. Eve says:

    I don’t think her forehead or eyebrows moved a centimeter once during the photo call.

    Yeah, I thought that too.

    It’s ironic that she’s been looking more and more like the character she played in Stepford Wives after the supposed transformation (minus the red hair).

    • Cleo says:

      She appeared in “Le grand journal” yesterday, a french talk-show and her face wasn’t moving AT ALL. She really looked like a wax statue. It’s a shame because she’s such a beautiful woman.

  7. Rhea says:

    When you look at the picture of her face closely, she still does have that botoxy look. But the dress fit her nicely. And that’s a really amazing body, I must say. As for her rack, maybe she’s wearing a push up???

  8. Marjalane says:

    Even with all her botox and lip implants, I think Nicole still looks 45. A good looking 45, but she doesn’t look any younger. And yeah, I don’t know if she inflated her fakes, but she definitely has fakes. And for the love of God- is her husband ever going to stop flatironing his frost and tip hair-do?

    • Esmom says:

      I know. Keith’s hair is beyond ridiculous.

      I’m not convinced she has bolt-ons. Could it be that she’s not as stick thin right now as he’s been in the past and the weight she’s gained went to her boobs?

      • DrM says:

        My thoughts exactly…she’s gained some weight. Its actually quite noticeable and its more than just five kilos. I think she looks MUCH MUCH better for it. However I was wondering why she is looking so much older? Great colour on the orange dress and the cream dress is lovely too but for some reason they look aging on Nic…which is odd since they aren’t particularly ‘old’ dresses…weird…outfits.

  9. venny says:

    I actually love the colour – it looks great on her!

  10. T.C. says:

    Girl has a tight little body. She towers over the men but isn’t afraid to wear high heels. Tom Cruise would have made her wear flats. lol. Shout to to Macy Gray and her rockin’ hair.

  11. marie says:

    and here I was hoping to get a break from the frozen forehead. I do like the dress though.

  12. Neelyo says:

    I like her hair that way. I wasn’t interested in THE PAPERBOY because it sounded like a John Grisham rip-off, but after reading the below article, I want to see it. I miss the Kidman of a decade ago who was one of the riskiest movie stars out there in terms of her choice of roles. This part sounds like a return to form and gives me hope for the future.

  13. Ruth Dunbar says:

    I love the dress, but orange-red is a favorite color of mine so I love to see people wear it.

  14. serena says:

    Oh god her face..she totally ruined it.
    No matter how talented she is, with that kind of face how the hell do they take her seriously?

    • deep says:

      what is wrong with her face..other than she is flawlessly beautiful? Actually she is one of the most beautiful actors out there today. I think whoever does her face does an amazing job. Her skin is in superb condition and she looks like someone that takes really good care of herself. Go Nicole. She’s beautiful!

      • Tina says:

        +1 I’m so sick and tired of ripping on her face. At least she does it right. She is flawless

  15. Jackie says:

    total bolt-ons! she never had those before.

  16. lil ole me says:

    She is a statuesque beauty, however, her days being cast as a believable sex-pot are over. Just my opinion. I don’t think she fits those roles anymore. Lovely dresses though

    • deep says:

      really? And, what exactly isn’t sexy about her?? She is as beautiful and sexy as ever. I think she is totally believable in such a role.

      • lil ole me says:

        Yup, that’s my opinion. Didn’t say she wasn’t beautiful, but I’m not buying into casting her for a “sex kitten” or “seductress” role. Don’t think she can pull it off, however wonderful an actress she may be. Perhaps if she could move her face with expression, it would change my mind. Sorry

  17. Dorothy#1 says:

    I think she looks beautiful! But why on earth is Macy Grey there???

    Love pictures of Zac and John Cusack!!! More please!!!

  18. Aria says:

    She has lost some weight recently and her face looks less botoxy. I don’t care about her lips. They don’t particulary bother me. Being said that, Nicole’s still one of the most beautiful actresses in the showbusiness.

  19. jess says:

    Zac is so short. How tall is he?

  20. TheOriginalKitten says:

    She is SO much less-injected and less-botoxy than she was even a few years ago. She has obviously cut way way back or just found a better surgeon. I love her but I wish she would go back to making the kind of interesting, high-quality movies she used to make. She’s capable of being amazing.

    • Esmom says:

      ITA. There was a point where her eyebrows looked like they were being pulled into her hairline. They seem more settled now and she looks more like her old self.

  21. tracking says:

    She looks curvier all over–though she’s obviously not averse to plastic surgery so who knows. Looks smashing all the same.

    • Anmelt says:

      I agree. When I first looked at tjose pics I thought she is fuller in the arms. She used to have thinner, toned arms while now it is now fuller.

      Then again she did mess with her face and hair which were perfect to begin with so it would not be surprising.

  22. Lisa B. says:

    She looks amazing, but only if you don’t look too close. If you do, you’ll notice how fucked up and weird her face looks.

  23. Jayna says:

    Beautiful woman.

  24. Me says:


  25. mandygirl says:

    I think she looks lovely. Her eyes are the most vibrant shade of blue.

  26. Hautie says:

    Love the dress. And I agree it is great when Nicole wears the bolder colors.

    If she is determined to keep her hair a pale color (blonde or this pale red) then she needs to wear the bolder colors.

    But I am not convinced yet about her having a boob job. Since she decided to eat solid foods… and has gained some much needed body fat… I am more inclined to think that her boobs just got a little fuller.

    Yet either way. She does look incredible.

    And I love seeing John Cusack! Such a great bonus…

  27. Dhavy says:

    Love that color on her and it is just the perfect fit. My only complaint is the shoe color, maybe a nude would be better or straps

  28. sup says:

    this hair is better. she has great taste for outfits too.

  29. Theresa says:

    I think she looks beautiful. I think it’s part genes and part cosmetic, which would be absolutely fine if she would just admit to it. I think the things she has fiddled with are typical issues of actresses (thin lips, aging, perhaps sagging boobies) and she would not be alone in wanting them taken care of, but her sanctimonious denials demonstrates her conceit. Why does she think (or any actor/actress that denies the work) she would be thought of more highly if people believed she is above getting some work done? I would have a bit more respect for her if she just clammed up rather than outright denied it when it is so obvious she has.

    I still think she is a wonderful actress, but very insecure.

  30. maria says:

    I have her frame and I would HATE to have bigger boobs…when one is tall and slim, small boobs suit….everything fits easily and it all looks proportional… that being said, at least hers aren’t ‘too’ big, but they’re big enough that it just doesn’t look right. I think she might regret them in a couple of years…implants for the most part just make a woman look matronly as she ages..
    just my opinion of course.

  31. The Original Mia says:

    I think she looks great.

  32. Shelly says:

    I think she looks really good here. Even her lips don’t look so terrible.

  33. blonde on the dock says:


  34. TXCinderella says:

    I think she looks nice and I love her dress. So glad she went back to the red hair.

  35. Green_Eyes says:

    She looks beautiful, love her complexion..however as gorgeous as the dress is..the color is wrong. Give her points though for going bold.

  36. Sabrine says:

    She looks lovely and I see her makeup is applied properly this time, no white patches. Her boobs look the same as they always did.

  37. satine says:

    Is the color of her orange dress problem for you??? This is a great color and she looks absolutely stunning in both dresses. You must have no sense of fashion!

  38. lower-case deb says:

    i like that cream dress so much.
    what is it?
    (i know, probably cost a lot, but i’m curious, and might need to know how long i need to scrimp and save for it).

    so pretty. i’m mostly digging the embellishments on it.

  39. Shrubee says:

    when i saw this dress, i actually thought it was a victoria beckham

  40. maggiegrace says:

    She looks lovely to me here. Explanation for the boobs: She’s gained some weight! Look at her in dress #2, especially in the last pic – girlfriend has a little bit of a gut! And the picture of her in red from the back – her arms have some meat on them, her bum is curvy, and her back is broader than usual. I think her body’s still rocking – I like her a little curvier.

  41. barb says:

    Wow, that is one of the best looking casts ever! I think Nicole looks great as always.

  42. Navy Blue says:

    I agree with you kaiser. I think she definitely got implants after giving birth. They look ridiculous on her frame.

    She ruined her face permanently. Funny how hse so badly wants to be seen as a serious actress, but her vanity has led to her getting all this horrible surgery. If she cared so much about her craft, she would want to be able to move her face. She strikes me as someone who would do anything for stardom.

    Love the dress though.

  43. phlyfiremama says:

    Its a ‘Tox off between Nicole & Matthew!! How come nobody ever calls him out on all the botox he has had? His forehead hasn’t moved in at least a decade~

  44. Kim says:

    So botoxy – so sad, she used to be prettyish

  45. Kate says:

    she’s so beautiful. she looks great in the orange but i really love the white dress.

  46. lolo says:

    Who cares if she has bolt-ons or botox? She has her millions, just leave her alone. She looks great here.

  47. Holden says:

    She always looks the same to me, surgical precision really.

  48. Cait says:

    Nicole has a nice figure and the dress color surprisingly works on her. (As a pale girl myself, but with dark hair, I always shy away from such ‘warm’ colors.) Still think she’s messing with her face, which is a damn shame. Something weird is going on with her forehead especially.

  49. Mara says:

    Actually the color is so nice on her skin tone such an elegant woman so beautiful !

  50. jellyfish says:

    is it just me or can you guys see her nipples in those last few photos of her in the cream dress?!?

  51. Michele says:

    That’s a really hard color to wear but Nicole pulls it off perfectly! I’m so glad she gained a bit of weight because she looks so sexy when she has curves. I love the zipper in the back of that dress. Sexy!

  52. skuddles says:

    Nicole has the coldest, most intense eyes ever … like she could slice you in two with a mere glance.
