Nicole Kidman's Fiery Orange Look Turns Heads at the Cannes Film Festival

nicole kidmanIt can be kind of tough to make a bold fashion statement as a mom without looking like you're trying too hard, but Nicole Kidman nailed the balance perfectly with this bright Antonio Beradi orange dress she wore at the Cannes Film Festival this week. Seriously -- how amazing is this look?!

Orange doesn't look great on everyone, and honestly, I never would've suggested it as a good match for Nicole's strawberry blonde hair. But if anything, it only made her fair skin and light red mane look even more stunning.

And I'm loving those Manolo Blahnik peep-toe pumps. Nicole was smart to go for a black shoe instead of something flashy that would've taken away from her eye-popping dress.


And I guess I can't ignore just how well this frock shows off her slender frame. At 44 years old, she's got a body plenty of 20- and 30-somethings would kill for! (I certainly would.)

It's pretty obvious that Nicole's role in Paperboy has really brought out her inner fire and made her even more confident. There's nothing more attractive than seeing a woman (and especially a mom) who knows she looks good and holds her head high.

And I gotta admit -- I've been a bit hesitant to try the bold color trends that seem to be all the rage this season, but after getting a load of Nicole? I might have to find a few pieces to brighten up my summer wardrobe. Any excuse to go shopping is a good one, right?

Are you afraid to wear colors that really stand out?
