Nicole Kidman, is that you?
We were surprised to see the actress ditch her blonde locks in favor of a sexy red bob with fab fringe in her Jimmy Choo ads, which the brand released today. As it turns out, the new 'do actually comes courtesy of a wig, but that doesn't make Kidman's mini-makeover for the campaign any less dramatic!
More recognizable, were her Academy Award-winning acting chops, which the actress definitely put to use in the brand's autumn/winter campaign, which plays on film noir themes and draws inspiration from Hitchcock heroines.
Looking every bit the femme fatale, Kidman opens the campaign video with a seductive stare amidst a mysterious foggy setting that definitely lends the ad a cool cinematic quality. Kidman shows off the brand's fierce Dane lattice booties, as well as its glam Ciggy clutch as she steps out of a convertible in an on-trend crop top and high-waisted skirt, before we see her in a new scene giving us even more eye candy in the form of the gorgeous Talan T-strap heels.
We've got to say, we'd probably make it to the movies more often if more feature films followed in the fab footsteps of the Jimmy Choo campaign and treated us to such a stylish parade of shoes!
The video saves the most stunning shoe for last: a seriously sexy over-the-knee boot that fits Kidman's long legs perfectly.
"Nicole has perfectly captured the mood of our AW13 collection; her character portrays the multi-faceted qualities of the Jimmy Choo woman for this season—strong, sexy with a beguiling sense of mystery," the luxury brand's creative director, Sandra Choi said in a statement.
For her part, Kidman had fun playing the role of a sultry bombshell with an enviable shoe collection.
"I really enjoyed being able to play a role that was strong, sexy and in control," Kidman revealed in a statement.
And she also loved working with photographer Mikael Jansson, who has shot for such publications as Vogue and W magazine.
"I got into a relationship with the photographer and Mikael is very intuitive, he knows what I am thinking and feeling and is able to translate it through the camera."
