Nicole Kidman Costumes Over The Years

(Nicole Kidman in the 2008 film Australia)

I love Nicole Kidman. Not only that, I love looking at all the costume films she's been in over the years. I thought I'd list some here with a few pictures. One day I'll possibly do more in depth study on individual costumes and even show more pictures of costumes I'm not showing. I really can't wait to make some of these on day. But I'm trying to force myself to finish what I've already started before I get off on any more projects.

Alright, enough about that...here they are....

Far and Away (1992)

I love this film but I can't seem to find very many pictures of costumes. But I love the ruffle at the bottom of this dress:

The Portrait of a Lady (1996)

I haven't seen this film but I love this dress. I might do a more in depth study of it one day.

Moulin Rouge (2001)

This is one of my favorite dresses which I've already done a bit of planning to make. You may see bits of it in the future:

And how cute is this?

And I'm in love....IN LOVE with this grey suit:

Cold Mountain (2003)

Another of her films I haven't seen but I love the costumes in! I've heard many people say the costumes aren't that authentic...but they sure are lovely!

I don't really see anything wrong with this dress though, it looks right to me! Don't you love it?

I love this bonnet:

I really want to make this dress one day: (I love the criss-cross pattern on the sleeve and also on the hem of the skirt) I'm thinking the unauthentic part of this one is the sleeves. They aren't drop shoulder and I'm not sure they made them that tight fitting.

And then my favorite...which I decided last night I AM making one day soon.

Ooooh....I just love that embroidered trim.

The Golden Compass (2007)

I only saw half of this film but I'm so smitten with this coat:

Australia (2008)

Then my most recent favorite Nicole Kidman film, Australia:

This is so beautiful:

I love this dress:

I think she looks amazing in these 1940's skirts and blouses:


There are so many more costumes from all of these films that I didn't list so that I wouldn't overwhelm you with the world's longest post. But these are a few I adore and I hope you enjoyed them.

Well, I'm off to make Christmas presents! Sorry I haven't posted about projects much lately. After Christmas I'll have a lot to show and tell! :)

In the meantime, don't forget to sign up for my GIVEAWAY if you haven't already.

Happy Christmas season!


  1. Beautiful! Nicole Kidman is stunning but unfortuantely not all of her movies or costumes are appropriate to view. I heard Cold Mountian is NOT a good movie with lots of adult content. I get so bumed out when hollywood makes movies with an era and actors that you like but the movies themselves are terrible.

  2. I love love her costumes! She's so lucky to dress in them all...

  3. Chrissy~ I know! Ah...to be an actress and get to dress up all the time. :)I guess that's one of the reasons I love to make them. :)

  4. Those pictures are great! Cold Mountain is such a good movie!

  5. Ooh! I just love these! I've got to pick up some of these films (edited) some time. I'm so thankful for high resolution costume images online so that I can see all the pretties even if I can't watch the movie! ;)

  6. I know what you mean about finishing projects before you start a new ones. :) That explains me very well unfortunately.

    Thanks for posting these beautiful pictures!



Although I continually talk about movie costumes on this blog, I am not a movie reviewer. Not all the films I discuss are recommended and I do not choose to review weather they are appropriate or not for the simple fact that every person's standards are different. Something that is fine for me may be offensive to some one else and visa versa. If you would like to look into the appropriateness of a title, I recommend pluggedinonline.com. I have not seen all the movies I discuss, and am simply interested in the art of clothes in film. I will leave you to decide for yourself if you will watch the movie or not.
