Thank heavens for ZOOM because I've spent endless amounts of time on every quadrant of this stunning Alexander McQueen dress. It is supremely interesting, exquisitely fashioned, and completely WOWing me. As a result, I'm falling in love with Nicole Kidman again. As is her husband. Witness:
Seeing N.K. in this dress makes me think of a conversation that I regularly have with my clients who are actors. And it goes something like this- It is incumbent upon you, through your clothes, to put ideas in the heads of casting agents and directors. In other words, if you want to be a leading man/woman, then DRESS like one. And I feel like Nicole had that notion in mind when she chose this dress. She was out to remind folks that indeed she's always commanded leading roles and that she'd be a superlative choice for some more. Let's face it, she's not had a huge movie since the early oughts (The Hours and Moulin Rouge) and it is time for a come back!
Side note: if IMDB is to be believed, she's turning 50 this year. I would gladly drink a potion composed of eye of newt, salamander toes, and the pulverized bones of small deceased animals to look like this at 50. Readers, please pin any such recipes you see.
Apologies but Keith and I need to get back to ogling Nicole now. Thanks.
