Nicole Kidman Cannes Film Festival 2012

The star looked stunning in her Lanvin gown, and when she turned around she left a lasting impression!

Nicole Kidman was breathtaking in her custom-made Lanvin gown, crafted by Alber Elbaz, when she walked the red carpet during the Cannes Film Festival for the premiere of her upcoming film, Paperboy, on May 24. The rose pink tulle down draped wonderfully around her svelte frame — but it was the back of the dress that really was show-stopping!

The draped gown came across one shoulder and also featured a thigh-high slit — but nothing was as dramatic as the combination of her bare back and her ethereal updo. While usually backless gowns are seriously sexy, I love the way this dress is still soft and feminine.

We’ve seen so many stunning stars in gorgeous gowns at the Cannes Film Festival, but this definitely tops the list!
