Nicole Kidman stole the show at the “Derby Day” thanks to her elegant hat which reminded everyone of “My Fair Lady”. According to the Inquisitr, the “Grace of Monaco” star left everyone gaping in awe when she showed up at the Flemington race track.
Nicole Kidman is playing the part of movie icon Grace Kelly in the new film “Grace of Monaco”, but for the Australian Derby Day, she got her inspiration from the looks of another Hollywood star, Audrey Hepburn in “My Fair Lady”. The Australian-American actress confessed that she wanted to pay tribute to the movie icon and for that, she wore a large hat signed by Stephen Jones and a white lace dress from L’Wren Scott’s collection.
Kidman told reporters that she was very impressed by “My Fair Lady” whom she described as one of her favorite movies. Since the movie was just as fun as the event she attended, Nicole thought the elegant dress and hat make the right choice. “We decided to do something that was fun and a bit different,” she explained.
The actress was accompanied by her mom and her dad at the Saturday event. Keith Urban would have loved to come with her, but he was too busy with the Country Music Association Awards. Moreover, he spent a lot of time with the kids celebrating Halloween and he couldn’t prepare for the race. While Keith doesn’t seem very interested in the Melbourne Cup, the actress is a big fan of the event; in fact, she has made lots of bets since she turned the legal age.
Nicole Kidman was unable to spend too much time in Australia because she had to fly back to France to continue filming for “Grace of Monaco”. She was in town for only 48 hours, but she was glad she could take part at the Derby Day for the first time.
