Nicole Kidman || There Are Some Things You Just Can't Wear

If you haven't watched season 1 of the TV show 'Big Little Lies' I suggest you drop this and immediately check it out on HBO. You will have a newfound respect for the characters, particularly Nicole Kidman whose performance is truly astounding. That doesn't mean we need to like everything she wears though.

Technically, the pink velvet dress that she recently wore on the red carpet, ticked all the right boxes. It's fitted, a great length and highlights her svelte figure. What the stylist failed to remember was that when you put a thin, blonde woman with rosy cheeks in a pink seventies inspired dress, she will look like BARBIE !

We sat down and tried to come up with creative ways to counter the Barbie effect here, and we have a couple of ideas. Firstly add a belt in a contrasting color, possibly black. Secondly, try more modern shoes also in a contrast color, not silver sandals... Thirdly, use bold accessories with a modern flair to empower this modern day Barbie look.
