Nicole Kidman: 'Keith gives me style advice'
Nicole Kidman has revealed that she asks her husband and their two daughters for style advice before stepping out at a red carpet event. "I tend to solicit the opinions of all three of them even though one of them is only two," she laughed.
The Paperboy actress has two children, Sunday, 4, and Faith, 2, with her country musician husband Keith Urban. The couple have opted to stay out of the Hollywood limelight and live in Nashville, Tennessee.
Australian-born Nicole, who has worked with Omega for eight years, has fronted their 'Ladymatic' campaign since 2010. She spoke at their press conference in Vienna on Saturday night.
Before you leave for a red carpet event, do your husband and daughters weigh in on what you’ve worn? Have you ever changed your mind about what you’re wearing based on their input?
"I've actually changed when my husband said something's not great. A lot of times, I look in the mirror and see something different. He likes natural and he likes something that's not so 'done', which I would say speaks for a lot of men. I've definitely changed my style since I've been with him as well."
What does a woman's choice of watch say about her?
"I suppose it's the equivalent to shoes and bags in a way. You can be funky, you can be quirky, or you can be very straight down the line – in terms of the watch and the band as well."
"It's interesting and I think now it's a very important fashion accessory. I enjoy it. And I enjoy that it does allow you to map out your day in terms of time. So it's practical but it's also very beautiful. And I also like that you can go underwater with it."
What's your favourite waste of time?
"Daydreaming. I'm still a huge believer in daydreaming. I love lying around with no book or anything – just having my mind. I used to do it as a kid and I still do it. When I do, it's when I come up with ideas. It's creative time and it's something I try to create for my children. We tend to schedule so much for our children and I try not to do that.
"So much of your creative life comes from lying around in your bedroom, or in the backyard or on your back in the pool looking up at the sky. Those times as a child are so important. I remember them vividly. And probably as an adult, they are still times that I would rate as the great moments in my life. I remember I used to lie on the grass and dream of being an astronaut. That didn't happen."
