If there's ever been an ideal place to wear some of the eccentric gowns created by high-end designers, Hollywood award shows are surely it. And that's exactly what Nicole Kidman did at the last night, showing her flair for the occasional unconventional dress by wearing a dramatic, quirky Valentino design.
And from the reaction on Twitter you'd think she committed the crime of the century.
Did no one tell these folks that the critics of the Critics' Choice Awards don't refer to them? Sheesh!
With its sheer hot pink fabric, silvery crystal dots, ample ruffles, and lace trim, the dress is certainly not something everyone would choose for themselves. But we happen to think she looked amazing in the unforgettable gown — and so did a few others.
Ultimately, we have a feeling Nicole doesn't care one way or another about what people think of her dress, considering she picked up a Critics' Choice Award — her umpteenth award for her role in Big Little Lies — last night. And it just so happens to match those crystal dots perfectly.
