Nicole Kidman was stunning in an ivory white gown at a screening of ‘Lion’ at the Mill Valley Film Festival in San Rafael, California. The Oscar-winning Australian actress turned heads on the red carpet and the photos — which you can see right here — are going viral.
Let’s face it, we might not have even known of the annual Mill Valley Film Festival were it not for the stunning appearance of the 49-year-old Hollywood A lister who was being honored with an award for her work in the new movie, ‘Lion’ as well as for lifetime achievement in film.
This is no fashion fail to say the very least. She’s absolutely gorgeous in the off-white embroidered mid-calf Rodarte gown. The delicate brocade of the bodice and skirt are very much a work of art. And with the insane amount of scrutiny of faces for any hit of wrinkles or, in the absence of same, fillers, pumpers, Botox or, just old-fashioned plastic surgery and facelifts, she went unscathed as far as criticism goes. Yes, she’s been long accused of Botox use. But she didn’t inspire any “changing face” rumors or Joker memes this time around.
She’s the star of the new movie ‘Lion’ based on the Saroo Brierley memoir ‘A Long Way Home’ in which the author chronicled his story of becoming lost as a five-year-old boy in Calcutta, thousands of miles from his family, being adopted and raised by an Australian couple and years later, as an adult, returning to India to search for his family.
Nicole Kidman portrays the adoptive mother, and Dev Patel, portrays the adult child. She herself, as the mother of two adopted children with ex-husband Tom Cruise. (She also has two children with her second husband, Keith Urban.) said of the movie, “”For me, this is a film about the power of mothers, whichever form they come in, whether or biological or adoptive.” She went on to say, “When you have good love like that, you flourish. However it comes your way, it comes. So it’s obviously emotional for me.”
