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?

I agree with BoFan regarding Nicole’s hair. I miss those beautiful red curls. Regarding her white dresses, she looks elegant in both. The off white color looks good year round. On a personal note, Nicole Kidman always comes across as a fine individual.

I agree-she is looking old–especially in the picture on the left.

That’s a stupid rule. It’s October and I have been wearing a white bubble skirt last week and this Tuesday. Wear whatever you like if it looks good. All I know is that i was the only one with that skirt on and I got a lot of compliments for it. Don’t listen to rules. Nicole’s dresses are beautiful.

I agree with you Lisa. But just as Nicole I can work ANYTHING!!!

That rule is so out dated. That’s like saying you should only high light your hair in the summer and only go darker for fall, or only use sunless tanners in the summer. Boo for the rules, they’re meant to be broken!

I totally agree about the hair color… the strawberry blond was so flattering, this pale pale blond makes her seem tired and washed out.

I don’t see a problem with wearing white after Labor Day, that saying is so old and no longer really matters. Nicole looks Great!!!!!

I’ve never actually understood the whole no white after labor day. Why exactly can’t you?
