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?

I think she looks beautiful (and also very talented). Not only outside, but inside as well. This class act LADY has been through ALOT and she’s still standing by her man! And there’s definately nothing wrong with that. HIS music has gotten me through some tough days & nights in the past few months. And I still listen to his music and will always continue. And I wish the very best for the both of them. He is honest, as she…and he wanted the real thing without anything ‘artifical/drug related’ in their relationship and I applaud him for that and for keeping his chin up and smiling and singing and she standing right there through it all and right beside him. I personally wish you both many happy healthy years together! You BOTH deserve IT!
Alot of the times, I wonder why SOMETIMES, EVERYTHING hinges (it seems) on what or how someone looks and not whats in their heart! What has become of our World inwhich we live?
You both entertain me & give me HOPE!

I think Nic looks great no matter what, but this is BY FAR my favorite hair style yet. This hairstyle flatters her face beautifully and makes her look so sweet. That’s the word to describe it….. she just looks so sweet and southern in this picture. The Southern look definitely works for Nicole!

I don’t think living in Nashville has done anything to the way Nicole Kidman wears her hair or what she puts on. Nicole has said that she looks at fashion as an art form and can appreciate clothing as an art form. I think her hair looks different because she wanted to change it up. People do that, it has nothing to do with where you live. This is not the first time she has ever changed her hair and she has lived in a lot of different places. She had naturally big, sort of frizzy curls in Dead Calm, Days of Thunder and in Far and Away, then she changed it up, her hair changed a lot in the 10 years of her marriage to Tom Cruise, and no one said he had anything to do with that, so why would being married to Keith Urban and living in Nashville have anything to do with this hair change? It doesn’t, Nicole just changed her hair, thats it! And she looks georgous…always…even as Virginia Wolf!

I think a fabulous fashionista like Nicole Kidman is apt to try new things, She still looked stunning and sultry and the happy wife of a country singer, but I don’t believe she will go as far as to wear cow boy boots, leave that past trend to Hugh Jackman in the upcoming Epic movie Australia by Baz Lutherman himself. Way to go Nicole for pulling of very bold new looks that I wont be surprised to see on the red carpet again and again, once again fashion is about creating a mood or feeling not a IN or OUT. And way to go PEOPLE magazine for keeping us all fashionably ready for all the twists and turns.

It.s called being in love and not being married to someone who [belongs] to a cult.

Kathryn on

She’s one of the most beautiful women, in my opinion the curls look more natural and emphasise her earthy look as a naturally stunning woman.

Nicole is beautiful =] on

She is absolutly beautiful and i agree with pete 100%! I’m so happy for her keith and sunday! such an adorable mix. Sunday is adorable! The eyebrows are the same color in bother pics and i think the right pic does look better bcuz her hair is yellower in the left. She needs to stick to more natural tones. The right suits her! Beautiful nicole!
