It may be a bit late in the year for an Olympic reference, but Nicole Kidman’s gold-on-gold-on-gold-on-gold Harper’s Bazaar cover is kind of asking for it. This doesn’t look like Terry Richardson’s usual fare (there’s nothing overtly raunchy or overly sexualized about it), and for “The Daring Issue” there’s nothing particularly daring about putting the Oscar-winning actress in a gold gown against a gold background. Kidman’s editorial within the issue more accurately fits with the “daring” theme, but it’s completely disconnected from what we see on the cover where her face looks awkwardly Photoshopped and it almost looks like she’s wearing joke teeth; so I guess that’s par for the course at least.
“Her face looks like it's melting,” mistress_f described. “The editorial looks exactly like an old Terry ed from the 90s. Everything about this is rather forgettable.”
“I like her editorial much better than the cover,” justaguy shared.
For something titled “Nicole Kidman’s Wild Ride,” the editorial actually seems pretty tame. And to me, Nicole seems completely out of her element among the monster trucks. Nice try though, I guess. At least she looks pretty and her face looks less melted than it does on the cover.
