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 Stunning! If “being country” makes you look like that then I’m all for it!!I’d take her country look and her country hunk husband in a minute! You go girl!

I absolutely love Nicole, but to me it is obvious that she has had plastic surgery: shortening of the nose, cheek implants.

I greatly prefer her beauty prior to the plastic surgery, as I do her red hair to blonde.

Nicole looks beautiful as usual! And I would hardly call that “big” hair, its just more soft.

I’m just happy to see that for once her eyebrows actually match her hair colour! That drove me nuts about Nicole kidman, this super blonde hair and dark brown eyebrows!! Portia De Rossi does the same thing.

I like the darker, curled hair. I think it looks much better with her complexion. Now if she’d let up on the Botox enough to allow her face to move…

Nicole Kidman is beautiful. So she has a new do,
that doesn’t make her country. Besides, is that a
slap at country? She actually looks better, in
my opinion because her hair all wavy around her face
softens her.
I thought she looked fabulous in the picture.

I think that Nicole finally looks happy. Her hair looks beautiful in the second picture. I think she is in a much better place in her life right now and it totally shows.

True, I hate when anybody does that, dark eyebrows and light hair, hello, match them!!!

I have never thought Nicole is pretty, to me she’s plain, but the new look is an improvement for sure. I know she’s a redhead, but these days anybody (even a redhead) can get a tan, please, some hint of color would be nice,note here,not orange, but a hint a color, that has always driven me crazy about her and some other casper pale celebrities.

Wow .. she needs to go back back back to her natural red… the closer she gets to it the better she looks. I always thought the straight blondish hair made her look harsh and older… country? I don’t think it’s country, I think it’s much improved. She looks beautiful, content and happier than she’s appeared in a long time.

Liz on

She looks ok in the first one, but I like the second one better. She looks so happy (and gorgeous!)
