Nicole Kidman is praised by fans as she shows off biceps in Perfect magazine shoot
icole Kidman has proved yet again that she is a force to be reckoned with as she appeared on the latest cover for Perfect magazine.
The 55-year-old actress has been revealed as the newly-launched magazine’s cover star and is showing off some serious muscle in the photos for the fashion-forward shoot.
Nicole is seen flashing her biceps on the cover as she wears a colourful printed top and a micro mini skirt by Diesel, styled by creative director of the clothing brand Glenn Martins.
The natural redhead also sports a more vibrant auburn wig as she is captured in several other bold and edgy looks for the photoshoot, shot by Zhong Lin.
Fans praised Nicole for the transformative photos, as they called the actress “iconic” and “versatile”.
One person tweeted: “Nicole Kidman looks so good on that Perfect mag cover”, as someone else wrote: “Those biceps!! Absolutely stunning!!”
Another coined the actress a “ripped icon”, as a fourth added: “f***ing iconic”.
Nicole’s eccentric magazine shoot comes after she was spotted exiting a fitting in Paris last month wearing outlandish sunglasses in a bizarre style move. The star later walked the runway for fashion house Balenciaga in the city in a show-stopping silver gown.
Nicole has continued to make a bold statement in fashion this year, after she landed the cover for Vanity Fair in a costume designed by Miu Miu.
The viral shots showed the Big Little Lies actress posing in a bandeau pleated top and another extra-low slung micro mini pleated skirt.
Nicole explained the choice behind her risqué look on the shoot in an interview with Australian director Baz Luhrmann, who she worked with on the 2001 film Moulin Rouge.
The actress explained that her stylist Katie Grand, who she collaborated with on her Perfect magazine shoot, had originally picked a different outfit for her.
Nicole said: “I showed up and they had another outfit for me and I was like, ‘No, no, I like this one [referring to the Miu Miu outfit], am I allowed to wear that?’
“And Katie Grand, who’s just fantastic, was on Zoom, and Katie was like, ‘You’re willing to wear that?!’ And I said, ‘Wear it?! I’m begging you to wear it!’”
