Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day? Leave it to Nicole Kidman to break the fashion rules — and look totally flawless doing it. The star had a whirlwind weekend in New York, promoting her new film Margot at the Wedding. Friday night, she hit a screening in an ivory Prada dress adorned with a bow, while Sunday night she attended the film’s N.Y.C. premiere in a black belted Balenciaga lace dress. We think that the snowy dresses set off the actress’s pale complexion and blonde hair perfectly, and breaking the rules is what fashion’s all about these days! Tell us: Will you wear white this fall?

The dresses are cute, but the poor woman needs to eat. She is way tooooooo thin. It’s not natural.

Love the dresses, but Nicole Kidman would wear them much better with her natural hair color. She’s far too pale to be a blonde – no contrast – and the white washes her out even more.

I just don’t see it. She looks to pruidish with her hair pulled back/up so tight. What happened to the long flowing red curls? She was stunning back then. She’s just gotten too ‘proper’ in her style choices for my taste. Wouldn’t they look great together, Nicole and Keith, him with his shiny highlighted locks and her with her flowing curls?

I’m not sure if I would wear all white dresses–but she looks great.

she looks boring like usual. and as she’s australian, i think that american dress rules don’t apply to her (or to me, i’m english). when is labour day anyways?

Sharon on

Janis – I think you’re right. Nicole is beautiful, but the hair color is wrong. Her natural color would give a nice dimension to her look. Right now, too brassy, too pale, too one-dimensional with her skin.

I can’t believe that anyone still takes that rule seriously. Not to be disrespectful to veterans but to me it seems like the whole “freedom fries” thing. I mean DOES IT REALLY MATTER??

Hasn’t anyone ever heard of winter white?

a beautiful woman in beautiful dresses. who says you cannot wear “white” after labour day, thought that went out with the turn of the century?

The white after Labor Day is stupid. Who cares. I love Nicole Kidman, and I’m so glad to see something about her on your blogs. She’s so beautiful and classy and very talented. I like Nicole in the second dress best. The dress is sexy, but classy still. Being the good mom she is with her 2 kids already, I wish her the best having a baby with Keith Urban, she’s already a great mom {so it seems}, I hope she has a baby soon.
