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 absolutely amazing – happy and beautiful. The pictures of her at the Rome Festival are fabulous!

I think this is a more natural look for Nikole. Her hair was too blonde before and she doesn’t look as frail now. I agree that Keith and the country look is better for her.

UGH!!! She’s had too much plastic surgery to start with and the hair does nothing to help!! START OVER NICOLE!!

Sarah on

She looks a little too Loretta Lynne for my tastes, but she still looks beautiful. If anyone can pull it off, it’d be her. She deserves happiness!!

I simply adore Nicole’s fluffy bangs & curls compared to the straight, sleek style (YAWN)! Since when do bangs, curls and a little bit of fluffy body indicate a person has “GONE COUNTRY?” I’m more interested as to why going country was made to sound like folks should gasp at notion.

Versatility is an attribute! She looks good both ways. Who wants to wear their hair the same every day, day and night? And I would NOT consider this “country.” Curls/waves have been in for quite some time now.

Her eybrows look the same shade as the other picture to me. Her hair color is a bit darker and more natural looking. I think this style makes her look younger and softer.

She looks the best she has ever looked! So happy for her.

What a beautiful woman. Bangs becomes her and so does the color. She also looks good with her natural curly red hair. I don’t like the light blond color. She looks too washed out with it. Stay happy Nicole!

I am from Nashville and her hair style is nothing compared to really big hair of the past country stars. You should realize that Nashville is a very cosmopolitan city these days. Nicole’s hair looks much healthier than the straight blond do, and the softness compliments her bone structure. Give the girl some credit—no matter what she wears she is still going to be beautiful.
