Has Nicole Kidman Gone Country?

10/18/2006 at 09:00 AM ET

We were stumped as to why Nicole Kidman suddenly looked so different at the Rome Film Festival — were her eyebrows darker? Was the dress a departure from her usual style? Was it just that she cut bangs? And then it hit us: She’s gone country! A few months of living in Nashville as Mrs. Keith Urban, and she’s traded in her flat-iron for a hot roller set. Gone are the sleek, straight locks of yesteryear (left), replaced with big hair, involving full curls, puffy bangs and a teased half-updo (right). What’s next for Nicole? Cowboy boots and jeans? Tell us: what do you think of Nicole’s new look?

Nicole looks gorgeous as usual. I think she looks great in the second picture, she looks so happy. She looks a bit tired in the first picture.

Well being from Texas, I can attest to the fact this is NOT big hair Nicole is sporting. Big for her, maybe; big by Southern standards, no way!! I think Nicole is gorgeous no matter what she does. She could shave her hair and she’d probably still be gorgeous. Remember her long, unruly curls from her “Days of Thunder” days?? Not her best look but she was still gorgeous. She’s gorgeous no matter what and her husband is smoking hot, what a rough life!

I just wanted to say that I LOVED Nicole’s hair! I thought she looked very soft and feminine. Although she always looks beautiful, her hair can tend to make her look a little hard. I enjoyed the departure. Country living has been good for her!

let’s be realistic: this woman is blessed and will look good no matter how she changes her appearance. i like the bangs, i just think her hair is a little too light & wish she’d get back to more of a redish color (days of thunder).

I don’t care what Nicole wears . . . she is the most stunningly beautiful woman in Hollywood (or Nashville). A truly beautiful lady is more beautiful straight out of bed than any of those un-talented flavors of the month (that usually grace the covers of the magazines) dressed in couture on the red carpet. I’ll bet Jessica Simpson sleeps with her mouth open and drools, but not Nicole. And just for the record, her eyebrows are the exact same color in both pictures.

Wow, she looks great! The hair sytle really gives her a younger, more playful look. I never liked her hair flat. Her face is very thin and long, with the old hair style she looked almost skeletal. Keep it up, Nic!
