It was the icy beauty of Rebel Heartswith warm blond curly hair and a Hollywood star face. Nicole Kidman, 54 years old, we liked it – almost everyone – right away. Her smile was genuine, her beauty unattainable about her. Yet she had that something that made her feel close to us. Maybe because she showed up on the red carpet with pigtails and a flowery dress or maybe because she started making us love men’s suits worn with total femininity. Then there was the passionate and troubled relationship with Tom Cruise that made us like her even a little more because, after all, she had sentimental problems so similar to her peers as to inspire them in the decision to change their lives and take her own work revenge (and also sentimental, with Keith Urban). And what we like more about Nicole every day are not just the parts of her that are increasingly complex, increasingly psychological and, at first reading, increasingly treacherous – see under the heading Nine perfect strangersfor example – but also her ability to transform herself more and more into a woman who knows how to highlight her statuesque beauty and personality, even through a dress.
Let’s see Nicole Kidman again in the TV series Roar – from April 15 on Apple TV+ -, in which for the umpteenth time she immerses herself in a complex character, a woman who eats photographs. And we couldn’t resist opening her fashion archives to study its evolution, summing it up in 30 iconic looks in our opinion. The lesson Kidman teaches us? That you can be as beautiful in jeans and an oversized shirt as in a grand soirée dress, as long as you feel comfortable and remain true to your personality. She has always done it, despite a thousand changes of clothes from jacket and trouser suits to tulle skirts, up to red carpet queen dresses. And we bet that you will want to borrow some style details, especially from the 90s.
