For a movie entitled Australia, this isn’t exactly the first look that would come to our minds (considering the tan, athletic outdoorsmen we tend to associate with the world’s most badass continent- Russell Crowe, Eric Bana, Sam Worthington, and Hugh Jackman – the other lead star of this film!) But Nicole Kidman looks 100% lovely in this 2008 epic that bombed at the box-office. Baz Luhrmann’s movie had one other gorgeous aspect besides Mr. Jackman – the costumes! The director hired none other than his wife, Catherine Martin. Here, Kidman’s character is arriving in Australia wearing a stunning navy and white outfit with a polka-dotted blouse, along with matching luggage (courtesy of Prada), gloves, hat and that fantastic umbrella! (She’s gotta keep that porcelain skin protected properly!) Even though this movie turned out to be a disaster, at least it got Martin an Academy Award nomination! And a well-deserved one at that!
