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 Kidman is stunning no matter what style she wears, and I think it’s cute that she’s adapting to the Nashville lifestyle with her sweetie. I love it.

Simply adorable.

She is beautiful – she is happy and that shows with her looks. Gorgeous.

I think Nicole looks beautifuil as always, but even more so in the second picture. She looks real happy in the second one, and kind of stressed in the 1st. But there’s nothing wrong with going a little country, I would too if I had a hott country singin hubby like she does.

Whatever you want to call it, this style is stunning on her–the whole effect is much softer and prettier than the straight, pulled-back look Nicole has had for the past couple years. She looks even better with bangs or curls around her forehead. I agree with others’ comments that the blonde haircolor could be a bit more reddish.

By the way, it looks like she’s using hair extensions in this photo, I don’t think her real hair is that long.

Nicole looks amazing. As for “country”, not so much! Her new still is classic and warm. She looks very happy.

Rita on

She is such a beautiful woman. I think both styles look great on her.

I like the softer look, it’s much more flattering than the harsh, ice-princess look she sported for awhile. She looks content which I would be too if I were married to Keith Urban. Classic beauty, stellar career and gorgeous husband; sigh, some women are so damn lucky!

I think Nicole looks beautiful all the time, but I think she looks even better with her new, “bigger” hair!


I think Nicole is more gorgeous with this new look. She is extremely beautiful anyway but with this new look even more so.
