Nicole Kidman in custom Michael Kors at the ACMs: dated fuggery or fine?

53rd Annual Academy Of Country Music Awards - Arrivals

At some point, do you think country music fans and country stars feel like Nicole Kidman is mocking them? Her styling is so different when she attends country-music events with her husband Keith Urban, and it’s almost like she’s doing a very bad version of what she thinks is “country music style.” Like, she’s trolling country music stars because she’s like “this scene is all about sh-tty hair and terrible clothes, right?” These are photos from last night’s Academy of Country Music Awards. Nicole wore a CUSTOM Michael Kors gown. As in, Michael Kors customized this gown specifically to look like something Dolly Parton would have worn in 1971. What’s particularly bad about this is that her hair is the exact same color as the dress. It’s just a big NO. Also: check out Keith’s crazy lifts!!

Miranda Lambert wore this Georges Chakra gown on the red carpet, but obviously she changed a few times during the show for her performance and stuff. Miranda won big at the ACMs, and she’s now won Female Vocalist of the Year for NINE years running. Crazy. As for her dress… it’s okay. It’s not really her style, right? And she went solo on the carpet because she and Anderson East broke up a month ago or so.

Here’s Jerry O’Connell and Rebecca Romijn. Rebecca wore a Uel Camilo gown and I like this?

Bebe Rexha in Yanina Couture. It’s always bad when the ruffle starts blocking your face.

Lindsey Vonn wore this for some reason.

Perhaps out of respect for Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton didn’t walk the red carpet. But he did bring Gwen Stefani as his date. They look very happy together, so I guess we’re not supposed to talk about how Gwen’s face looks really different these days.

    Poor Gwen. So much success and yet her self esteem issues are off the charts. Her face 🙁

      • Mel M says:

        When I saw these pics yesterday I could tell something was off with Gwen from just the thumbnails and I don’t think it’s just the nice lip. I even went back and looked at a pic of them from like a week ago and she looks different, her face structure looks different and she doesn’t look anything like herself.

      • Esme says:

        Gwen is completely unrecognizable; she must hate herself. Luje Bryan’s wife looks like a hooker (aren’t they Christians?), and Nicole Kidman has rendered me speechless. Why does Keith always look like Nicole’s younger sister?

    • SM says:

      I actually did not recognise her. She looks like a complitely different person and she already was so far away from her original face…
      As for Nicole, I was about to yell about that crazy look but she fits right in, all outfits in this post are crazy.

    • Beckymae says:

      It’s also because she’s doing a nude lip… She’s usually wearing some Geisha red style lippy, that’s throwing me off but yes, 6 litres of Botox too…

      • Kaykayok says:

        @Becky – I agree, it’s the nude lip. I’m so used to seeing the bright lipstick that it’s really different. It looks nice, just changes what I focus on on her face. Nonetheless, there’s some Botox going on there.

      • AnnaKist says:

        I also agree. Nude lips don’t always look good. And they never look good over a bad lip job.

    • Morning Coffee says:

      If you did not tell me that was Gwen Stefani, I wouldn’t have recognized her. Wow. As for Nicole, any dress where your bones poke through is not good. And Keith – his look reminds me of the TV commercial about the guy with the stretched out V-neck collar.

      • AmunetMaat says:

        LOL, that’s a great commercial though. I laugh every time I see it.

      • Esme says:

        I think Keith is starting to look like somebody’s mom! And the color of Nicole’s hair is bad enough, but what is that style? She looks like she has about 3 strands of limp hair–it’s horrible.

    • lucy2 says:

      It’s pretty sad. She always seemed confident to me, but no one confident would alter their face that much.

      • Sojaschnitzel says:

        She seemed confident to your? With that amount of makeup plastered on her face?

  2. Josephine says:

    Nicole’s dress is all about the back, which is beautiful. I’m a total apologist for dresses that have a little 60’s vibe, and I really like this one. (Again, better once you see the back and what’s going on there.) Her hair color though – not great.

  3. Tanguerita says:

    Gwen’s face – O. M. G.

  4. Jay says:

    I straight did not recognize Gwen Stefani.

  5. Ankhel says:

    Oh Gwen! When you stand next to Nicole Kidman, and she looks like nature’s child in comparison… Think about your choices.

  6. grabbyhands says:

    The only thing I can think of with Nicole Kidman is that she just doesn’t care anymore. I used to love to see what she would wear to the Oscars because she had so many gorgeous gowns, but lately they’re all kind of headscratchers.

    Some questions about Lindsay Vonn-

    Why was she at the ACM’s anyway?
    What in God’s name was she thinking?? That whole thing is a huge, eye searing monstrosity topped off with a horrible topknot.

  7. Sensible says:

    Nicole just scares me.

  8. Belle Epoch says:

    Looks like Halloween

  9. Juliaoc says:

    What is happening with Miranda Lambert’s….chest region? Are they squished way down, or is there an actual under-boob shadow? Is it a trick of the lighting? Are those her nipples? I’m very confused.

  10. queenE says:

    Nicole looks like a mannequin

  11. Rumi says:

    They all look bad especially Keith, he’s just so unattractive with his hair, V neck t-shirt and lifts. I never got this pairing, Keith and Nicole.
    Gwen, it’s so sad to see her do this to herself.

  12. TurkeyLurkey says:

    Miranda Lambert won her 30th award last night, the most in the history of the awards show. Her song Tin Man is so pretty. How awkward that she and Blake have to show up at the same awards shows over and over, probably just down the row from each other in the audience.

  13. tracking says:

    Maybe she just wanted to fit in with all the other bad dresses?

  14. yanni says:

    Gwen looks horrifying.

  15. minx says:

    Gwen, Nicole…I don’t even know what to say anymore.

    • Ohmaygash says:

      Nicole had toned down on the face tweaks for awhile. Was it Joan rivers that quipped, that you could watch a movie on her forehead..? Can’t remember, but nicole seemed to have got the hint and slowed down. Now she’s back to full face jack, and it looks like Keith has been joining her. His always been high maintenance, with his hair (colour, tips and straighten), spray tans and (un)cool rock clothes. I wonder who takes the most time getting ready. And Gwen, well now she’s just somebody that we used to know..

    • FHMom says:

      Right? Nicole looks like a smiling corpse and Gwen looks like a 60 year old trying to pass for a 30 year old.

  16. Becks says:

    I never would have known that was Gwen Stefani if the post didn’t say as much. Wow.

    and Lindsay Vonn…..oh no. That was bad.

  17. Jennifer says:

    I don’t think Gwen looks that different she’s been doing that overly plastic look a long time now. It’s just the pale colors vs bright red lipstck. 40+ year old women don’t look 20 something without a lot of make-up and filler/Botox/etc.

  18. Anon says:

    “Nicole is trolling country music stars by wearing a fugly dress” – followed by pics of country music stars wearing a bunch of very fugly dresses….

    • lucy2 says:

      Right? Nicole’s is the best of the bunch, and it’s not good. Those are some bad/tacky dresses.
      I don’t think she’s trolling anyone, she just has odd taste in fashion sometimes. A lot of the time. And i desperately wish she’d go back to the red hair.

  19. Junebug says:

    Are we even sure that’s Gwen? I don’t think it is. Has it been confirmed that’s her?

  20. Lala says:



    WHY LAWD …WHY?!?!?!

  21. adastraperaspera says:

    That just can’t be Gwen Stefani.

  22. Rachel in August says:

    Yes Nicole’s dress has a dated style but it kind of suits her and she looks gorgeous. Miranda’s dress cuts her in half and adds weight, emphasizes her stoutness … I’m sorry but I think, while I love the colour yellow, that the bright yellow dress is an eyesore!

  23. Lurker says:

    At first glance, I thought Gwen was Kristen Cavallari.

  24. SJhere says:

    Gwen has always piled on the makeup with a trowel. It’s the nude lip instead of her usual blood red overdrawn lipstick. WTH is going on with her giant eyebrows? Groucho Marx salute, maybe.
    Nic looks god awful, has for years. Do not let her near an open flame, she would melt.
    All the ugly dresses, over bleached and damaged hair on these ladies, not good.

    I have never understood Nic and Keith. Nope. But, I’d say after TC almost anyone else is an upgrade. Honestly, look back at pics of Nic and Tom at the beginning of their relationship..they were both very, very beautiful. Then, Tom spent years going full wacka-doodle in CoS and he’s never coming back to reality, IMO.

    Reba looked good! Wore a dress from 25 years ago? Go Reba! And her voice is still strong, she should get more attention. Reba has had a great career.

    As for Lindsey Vonn….take your $ and go away. Why is she at a country music award show at all? Ugh. Tiger Woods…I can not get over the fact that she took up with Tiger after all his ugliness was public, talk about No self respect!

  25. emma peel says:

    I think Nicole and Keith look fantastic!

  26. No Doubtful says:

    I think Gwen’s bolt-ons are worse than whatever she did to her face. Luke’s wife too. I thought those went out in the 90’s? HOW AWKWARD bringing Gwen and their PDA with his ex wife also attending.

    I actually like Vonn’s dress. It’s upbeat and different!

  27. holly hobby says:

    Holy cow Gwen looks unrecognizable. What happened? If you did not point it out it was her I’d thought she was some random lady.

    Ugh Nicole’s outfit – so much wrong. Keith if you are going to wear lifts why highlight them?

  28. Maum says:

    Lindsay Vonn… 😂😂😂

  29. Redgrl says:

    Loretta Lynn must want to slap Nicole Kidman for that dress! I can just hear her – “no, no, that’s not how you do Lawrence-Welk country wear! Girl come over and raid my closet!” Nicole also needs to go back to being. redhead. I like Rebecca Romijn ‘s dress also, and while I don’t know who that Bebe person is the dress is kinda neat. Luke Bryan’s wife looks trailerrific and Lindsay Vonn looks ridiculous – I thought she may be trolling as she has a pretty good sense of humour… Gwen Stefani – tragic…

  30. Frosty says:

    Gah, Kidman looks terrible. She must be pretty stubborn about colors she likes, because she consistently wears colors, beyond all reason, that are fine on their own but look ghastly on her.

    • Taxi says:

      Agreed. She’s too pale for most pastels, especially the ecru-beiges which she often wears.

  31. ladida says:

    Just wow. Dumpster fire.

  32. Scarlett says:

    What was this event again? The night of the living dead?

  33. Diana says:

    Nicole is just to botoxed and her face is to full of fillers. She doesn’t even like herself from 2 months ago. I don’t think fillers look good unless they are left to settle & then use sparely b/c they stretch your skin. Of course, Nicole face is so long from its original that it really doesn’t matter.

  34. Ladiabla says:

    Oh Nicole, why on earth would she match the hair to her dress? It’s just so, so bad. And I’m disappointed in Gwen, she just needs to stop. The outfit’s bad as well, she looks like she’s going to the club instead of an awards show. I don’t get it, she’s worn gowns before. Is she dressing down for Blake now? Ugh

  35. A Fan says:

    Just saw Nicole Kidman during a recap of the awards. Good grief, her face did not move! She was trying to smile, but it literally did not move.

    Gwen is not too far behind.

    [*Ladies, you are both past the point of no return.*]
