Nicole Kidman’s White Dior Dress For 2011 Oscars

  • Pin it

Nicole Kidman pulled her hair together in a sleek, straight do for the 2011 Oscars Red Carpet. She looked every inch her gorgeous, happy self and she was wearing a masterpiece of a dress from the Christian Dior Spring Summer 2009 Haute Couture collection.

I remember the collection and, most of all, I remember it fondly for it was a gorgeous sartorial exploit. Nicole attended the Oscars with her husband, Keith Urban, spreading their radiance and good moods. How daring of Nicole to put on those bright red shoes! Unexpected, wouldn’t you agree?

One of my faves. This couple can’t stop smiling I believe. The ice-queen has gone. Good for you Keith! :D
I liked it Dior was around at the red carpet for obvious reasons and Nicole can wear such a gorgeous dress with such natural elegance. Seeing her walk, move in that dress was a feast to our eyes. I like her hair too. Just perfect.

I begin to feel frumpy, very frumpy….;)

I loved it as well. I don’t know if was a kind of support to Galliano, but I interpretated it as that.

What a beautiful dress! And Nicole looks ever so happy! Happier than she ever looked with Tom Cruise.

I wrote my comment before I saw the John Galliano’s rant on video. Because no on should be punished before guilt has been proved. Just for the record. Some minutes ago I read on Hilary Alexander’s Twitter that Dior has fired him. It’s just announced like an hour ago……

Somewhere else I read that there were already people assuming Nicole has n*zi ideas too. I think that’s beyond ridiculous!! She just wore a wonderful dress by a man whom apparently has fallen apart. I’m shocked. Shocked by his words, shocked by the state he was in. But also shocked these people found it all very funny. I wouldn’t giggle like these ‘ladies’ did. I’ve an idea what I would do but that doesn’t matter.

What a sad world we live in, I feel so sad about all the hate in this world and……

I agree with you whole heartedly ajgingerbelle.
What Galliano said was reprehensible. I find it laughable that some people are “excusing” what he said because he was drunk. That is NO excuse, often alcohol and drugs lets out what people really think and feel, it helps reveal their deep ugly.
I am glad that Dior fired him.
And I do not think that Nicole Kidman has N*zi sentiments.

Ellington, thanks for the support girl I was so emotional when I wrote this…..and am still sad. I read comments that were as wrong as John’s were…..:(

well girls, i beg to disagree. If you do a bit research or talk with professionals you will see that alcohol / drugs DO make people say or do things out of their nature.Galliano worked surrounded by observant jews who NEVER saw he being racist. Besides that his eternal references to ALL cultures and etnicities in his collections only shows a person far away from racism. He was out of his mind and that video clearly has been edited. Besides that, jewish law states that BOTH sides must be heard before a sentence is pronounced. As a jew myself I am not the one who will throw the first stone. I think he has the right to defend himself and to tell his version of this mess.
I am not saying that what he said was not improper and horrible, what I am saying is that many times throghout history we had seen people being vilified and crucified by “appearances” that later showed to be only circunstancial.

Whoa.. You know, I keep watching that video and can’t believe my eyes / ears! Can. Not. Believe. It!

As far as Nicole is concerned, I think she chose the dress way before all this mess started. So I doubt it’s a matter of politics or that she’s taking sides.

Such a shame, such immense talent! :( It’s so, so sad!

#9 mdinah on 03.01.11 at 5:04 pm

me neither.. really.unbelivable. I am really sad. He said horrible things but I do think the things are being take out of context in that video because we can’t see how it started.
To me its like(a hypothetical situation) when you are teasing me (a jew) more and more and at one point I say: “ahh, of course, and I love Hitler” as a suprem absurd to top all absurdities you have been saying to me.
And look , I had jewish friends who said to me: ” die in a fire” or ” die in a gas chamber”…Does it make them anti semits?? I dont think so.Its a rant. a moment of deep distress.
And in his case he was heavily drunk. It IS a reason to say/behave in a uncomprehensible way say the professionals in addiction. well, people THINK it isnt a reason but what WE THINK , our personal beliefs ,not always corresponde to reality.
Besides that people are judging his ENTIRE career based on 2 isolated episodes.
I dont think his career has ended. Look at Chanel who was a well known anti semite and nazi simpathyzer and today is glorified and mythified.. Look at L’Oreal who start the business on jewish confiscated property… both making billions in revenue.Unfortunatelly the style of his men’s collections is not suitable for me, otherwise I would buy something only to support him..there is a say: “show me love when I less deserve it, because its when I need it most”.
before making my final judgment I will wait for his version of the facts.

Mdinah; so true, we can’t see how it all started. I’ve re-watched it a few times because I watch the news and there it was again and again….and these giggling girls made me feel more and more uncomfortable in the whole situation. I saw a guy in a terrible state, someone who needs help desperately and it was like they feeded him to go on and on…. I shall miss the John Galliano I love. I do not crucify him so to speak. And yes, I thought of Coco Chanel too. And I get your drift in what you try to make clear; I got it.
Forgiveness is the greatest and at the same time one of the most difficult things we as human beings can give. I find it hard but when I’m there I feel so much better. Because who am I with all my flaws?
I hope John shall find a way to heal and save himself that’s all I’m hoping for right now.

(Until my bewildering I read somewhere -rather not mention names- that this was so typical Euro-trash behaviour and all over Europe…..I was and am still speechless although things changing in Europe it’s not typcial Euro-trash….)

Actually alcohol is not an inhibiter it actually loosens up a person.
And if they are harbouring some kind of sad or hateful behaviour then it often comes out when drunk. It is not out of their nature Mdinah it is sadly a deep and repressed part that is set free and they act how they really feel. Case in point Charlie Sheen and his binges and abuse towards women in his life, Mel Gibson and his drunken hate filled rants. Jonathan Rhys Meyers and his racist talk while drunk. It if is not there to begin with it won’t come out.
Yes it may seem out of character per se but in actuality it is not. The drugs and booze just unlocks the vault.
Galiano said what he said, and that is truly sad.

#12 Ellington on 03.01.11 at 9:35 pm

As for the support that Chanel received that I find truly lame and jank. Yes she made beautiful things and changed the way women dressed but I honestly loath the way that people turn a blind eye to the base and horrific natures and actions of people because they are rich,famous or created something that they covet.

#13 nell on 03.03.11 at 12:25 pm

Everybody discuss this like they are some authority & never do anything wrong. I wait for John Galliano’s vindication.

#14 mdinah on 03.03.11 at 2:08 pm

Ellington,you said well and I agree with you, partially. Alcohol MOST of times does what you say.
We still dont know if he was also under drugs (prescribed or not). Substance abuse includes a wide variety of(mis) behaviours.When I started my career I worked briefly with drug users and I was astonished by what I saw..things not even described in text books.
as Nell has said, we are not autorithies on the subject. Of course diversity of opinions is always welcome. I only hope that people will be “open” to change their judgment IF new facts surfaces.

#15 mdinah on 03.03.11 at 2:18 pm

jinjer, yes, you nailed it gurl.
Forgiveness is one of the main pillars in Judaism.

#16 Ellington on 03.03.11 at 8:20 pm

Forgiveness is very important and he has apologized for what he has said. Like I said it was a sad thing, and now it is up to the French courts to decide.
But I honestly do not think that alcohol or drug use should be an exempter for someone, for it is ultimately their choice in the end, even if they are addicted.
As for never do anything wrong, saying racist, sexist, homophobic crap is unacceptable, people should know better and getting drunk or stoned does not and should not let one off.
Apparently Galliano has gone to rehab, I hope he finds success and peace there.

#17 keiko on 03.05.11 at 12:54 am

Interesting how people who personally know Galliano have supported him but the gen pop who have no clue about him have vigorously condemn him!
One would think that drunken ramblings are a long way from an organised public forum?

#18 mdinah on 03.05.11 at 7:31 am

most of people said to me: “in vino veritas”

to which I responded: ” panem et circenses”

“Qui sine peccato est, primus lapidem mittat” dahlings!

Enjoy your weekends :)

Enjoy yours too ajgingerbelle! : )
