Put Nicole in a room with Madonna (and Jessica Lange) every time and her face actually starts to move. Even Third Lip wasn’t so third lippy last night. But that Versace was her best in a long, long time.

You know why?

It gave her an hourglass.

Nicole is a lean woman. And somehow this dress created so much shape. Relatively speaking, of course. I’m not saying she’s suddenly JLo, but at the same time, it was less of an “I” and more of a mild “S”.

Keith Urban accompanied Nicole to the event, naturally. You know who else was there? Rupert Murdoch and his wife Wendy, with whom Nicole is very close. And normally they don’t hesitate to pose together. Maybe it’s because my eyes are crossing from this all-nighter, but I haven’t seen a shot of them all in one frame. If you have, please do send it over.

I wonder if Kidman is less eager to be so tight with the Murdochs since, you know, that whole business about phone hacking and all. And amazingly Nicole managed to escape scandal. From that newspaper?! How fortunate.
