Pale skin always looks best with dark rich colors. Nicole Kidman took this advise when she attended the Lion premiere held at the BFI London Film Festival on Wednesday.

For the occasion, the actress wore a black velvet dress detailed with keyhole cutouts that started at the neck and ended at her navel. The frock also came with a thigh-high slit on the front to showcase Nicole’s long legs. Complementing the getup were fine jewelry and a pair of pointed d’Orsay pumps detailed with ankle ties. To say Nicole looked stunning  would be an understatement because she was positively glowing.

What do you think of Nicole’s latest red carpet choice? Spot-on. Would you agree? Even Dev Patel couldn’t take his eyes off the Aussie star. I mean, he literally looks starstruck in these pictures!

Nicole’s dress and shoes are from Armani Prive’s  fall 2016 collection. I couldn’t find them online, but you can try your luck at the nearest Armani store in your city. The dress is obviously a couture piece, which explains why it is quite hard to locate.

As for Nicole’s pumps, if you fancy the silhouette and the design, here are two affordable alternatives from Badgley Mischka and Imagine Vince Camuto that you can consider. Wear any of these pumps with a long black velvet dress to channel Nicole’s style:
