Just as we’re finishing a marathon Fugtrospective of one highly regarded Australian actress, we’re going to begin another one. If you thought Margot Robbie’s two-parter was large, Nicole Kidman’s is getting spread across three posts. This is what I get for having fancy ideas about mapping a celebrity’s life in fashion. Because you know who’s worked a LOT in 40 years? Nicole Kidman. You know who’s never shirked a red-carpet duty? Nicole Kidman. You know who has worn so much stuff that’s varied and wild and wacky? Nicole Mary Kidman. Editing it felt like excising too much, so we’re going to come at her thusly: Her first 20 years, her next ten, and her most recent ten (all roughly). By some miracle, I truly don’t think you’ll be bored.
