Nicole Kidman is beautiful. Not stunning, not quirky-looking or pretty. Just beautiful. In that Old Hollywood, quietly articulate, wish-you-could-be-here kind of way. Her new spread for Net-A-Porter’s magazine, The Edit, shows this perfectly as the Australian native shows a more coy side of her personality. Clad in Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana, Kidman also shows her more flirtatious side to fashion opting for younger designers such as Mary Katrantzou and Erdem.
Although her hotly-anticipated film, Grace of Monaco received luke-warm reviews Kidman doesn’t let it affect her spirit, ““When [reactions are] amazing I’m up front and center; when they’re bad I’m up front and centre.” Despite being one of the most successful actress’s in the industry, Kidman tells The Edit about the working mother guilt, ” It may sound old-fashioned, but I want the family to work. And I feel pain when I’m away; I literally feel a yearning and a pain.” She goes on to explain, “They say your art gets affected when you have a family, but I’d much rather have a family. Having experienced the greatest awards and accolades, the idea of being alone with that doesn’t work for me.”
Beautiful and refreshingly honest, I think we love her just a little bit more.
