Nicole Kidman dazzled audiences at the 95th Academy Awards with her greatest champion, Keith Urban, ushering her down the champagne-colored aisle to the Oscars.
The Oscar winner walked the red carpet with her spouse of 16 years, who wore a black tuxedo to complement her embellished black Giorgio Armani Privé gown.
The form-fitting gown with a thigh-high slit emphasized Kidman’s slender figure and extended her already long legs. Fans were astonished when Nicole posted a picture of herself on Instagram before walking the Oscar carpet, with comments like, “…you are embodying Practical Magic Nicole,” and “Biggest play of the night.”

Kidman later took the stage with actor Idris Elba to deliver the Best Director award.
The 55-year-old Australian beauty received no nominations this year, and her last victory was in 2003 for Best Actress in The Hours for her portrayal of the famous Lucille Ball in Being the Ricardos.
But, like a lovestruck schoolboy, her adoring spouse showered her with PDA and openly declared his feelings for her.
Kidman attended the pre-Oscars dinner party at Beverly Hills’ Polo Lounge the night before the pageantry of A-list celebs. Seducing cameras in a traditional but contemporary navy-blue tweed ensemble–a skirt hemmed with black tulle paired with a double-breasted blazer–Kidman completed her look with a ponytail, sling-back heels, and pearls draped around her neck.
Prior to the event, Kidman flaunted her stunning gams in a chic yet provocative Instagram photo with the text “Saturday night.” Her followers reacted swiftly with comments on her photo. “Legs for days,” one person said, while another simply said “#goddess.” “My. God. *faints,” a third person said.
However, the same figure that elicited nearly 1 million likes and thousands of steamy comments was also targeted by trolls just weeks before.
Kidman has been described as “terrible,” “malnourished,” and a “walking skeleton.”
On March 1, 2023, Kidman and Urban enjoyed some seaside time in Sydney with their daughters Faith and Sunday.
The family did what most people do on a beach: they dressed appropriately. Kidman, a fair-skinned natural redhead, donned a protective long-sleeved swimsuit or rashie, a style of swimwear she has worn for years.
The Daily Mail UK called Kidman a “beach babe,” explaining that she stays active through yoga, spin, and running, and wrote, “Nicole could not wipe the smile off her face as she spent some quality family time with her family.”
Nonetheless, pictures of Kidman in her UV rashguard prompted a flood of critical comments from fans, who accused her of being malnourished and too thin for her age. “TOO slim. Could do with a few more healthy meals in her.” Another said, “Yeah. It’s a slender figure all right. It’s also old, sickly, and frail. She needs to eat something. No one likes a skelet(t)on…”
Kidman’s 55-year-old spouse, on the other hand, is unabashedly her biggest fan and adorable when expressing his affection for his wife.
The couple is well-known and revered for their public affection, which includes sincere displays of devotion.

At the 2016 SAG Awards, Urban escorted Kidman, who was nominated for her portrayal as Grace Kelly in Grace of Monaco. Speaking to E News! Kidman explained how she prepared for her role, “I met a number of people who knew her. I also just studied her. My mom adored her. So my whole life, it was always Grace Kelly. You know, you could fall into the Marilyn Monroe camp or the Grace Kelly camp, and my mom was in the Grace Kelly camp.”
She then turned to her spouse and inquired as to which camp he belongs.
“you camp,” he replied, softening my heart. Urban shared a sweet picture of himself kissing Kidman’s forehead on her birthday in June 2022. “Happy birthday, baby girl xxxx,” the message said.
Fans reacted positively, with many expressing their affection for their love. A few days later, on their 16th wedding anniversary, Urban captioned a cute picture of them–Kidman in a summery dress topped with a straw hat and Urban in a blue baseball hat with a matching t-shirt–“Happy sweet 16 baby xxxxx.”
Fans all over the globe commented on the two’s casual photo, saying things like, “Just love you two together. Keith, there is nothing more attractive or as the youngsters would say sexy than a man who loves his wife and is loyal to her at all times.” “Happy anniversary!” said another. “I admire your sweet devotion to your wife.” On their 15th anniversary the previous year, Urban shared a photo of himself embracing his wife, who was giggling in his arms.
He wrote, “Happy anniversary baby girl! My life started when you said ‘I do’ 5475 days ago.”
There is no disputing that the couple’s enviable love is genuine and unscripted, and despite all the criticism, Urban remains his wife’s greatest supporter.
