FIRST LOOK! Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly. Thoughts?

Nicole Kidman for Vogue Germany August 2013-006

Today we’re getting our first look at Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly! Up until now, all we’ve gotten is pictures, and now we get to see her in motion!

The Weinstein Company has finally unveiled the first trailer for ‘Grace of Monaco,’ starring Nicole Kidman as the late princess, Grace Kelly. The film will be released in the UK in November.

The trailer gives us a glimpse at Nicole as Grace, while Frank Langella narrates. Tim Roth co-stars as Prince Raineer III.

I’ve said from the beginning that I’m not exactly sold on Nicole as Grace Kelly, and I don’t think the trailer proves me wrong. I don’t know if Nicole can pull it off – but then again – who could. Grace was in a league of her own!

Watch the trailer below!

This month’s edition is an homage to the Nicole and the 46-year-old has been shot three times by different artists to celebrate her commitment to social change and her activism on behalf of women’s rights.

“Success has not satisfied Nicole Kidman. On the contrary – her hunger for new experiences is undiminished. We are fascinated by that aspect of her character,” says Vogue editor Christiane Arp

Three photo spreads by superstar photographers Patrick Demarchelier, Camilla Akrans and Bruce Weber show all different aspects of her personality, although we are sure she has more than three sides.

The August issue of German VOGUE hits newsstands on July 17, 2013 with its title “Nicole Kidman – up close and personal.” Previews of some of the photo spreads from the magazine can then be found at VOGUE.de.

A telephone conversation between friends: VOGUE-author Ingrid Sischy phone with Nicole Kidman

Ingrid Sischy: From where are you talking about just Nicole? I know that you’re with you in Nashville, but you sit outside in the garden?

Nicole Kidman: No, in a small room in Keith’s studio. He just plays guitar and takes on a song.

Ingrid Sischy: Tell me about your two young daughters, Sunday Rose and Faith. Do you think they will look at the “Wizard of Oz” and want to go beyond the yellow brick road?

Nicole Kidman: They’re both very different and very complex. Sunny is hugely emotional and expressive, and Faith, the younger, is more musically gifted.

Nicole Kidman signs with Jimmy Choo

Nicole Kidman has just signed on to star in Jimmy Choo’s upcoming fall campaign, which will be shot by Mikael Jansson!

The shoe company said the campaign has a “cinematic feel that hints at the power and seduction of the Jimmy Choo woman.”

It is slated to break in the August editions of titles including British and American Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair, Elle, and W.

The campaign is Sandra Choi’s first as sole creative director of the company.

“Nicole is one of the finest actresses in the world,” said Choi. “I knew [she] could convey the empowered glamour of the brand. But she is also so nuanced and refined; she brings an attitude of defiance, strength, sensuality and elegance.”

Kidman said she has always loved fashion, “and often use it as a way to get into character.”

The actress is part of the eight-person jury of the Cannes film festival, which opens Wednesday and runs through May 26.

Nicole Kidman’s gorgeous ‘Flare’ cover for December!

It has taken a very long time, 11 years to be exact, for Nicole Kidman to open up about her very painful divorce from Tom Cruise. At the time, they seemed like Hollywood’s perfect couple. Then Tom Cruise shocked not only all of us, but his wife, by walking out.

11 years since Tom split, Nicole is finally read to talk about the ‘shock’ of her marriage ending.

‘I thought our life together was perfect,’ the actress told DuJour magazine, admitting she was blindsided by the actor’s decision to end their ten-year union.

‘It took me a very long time to heal. It was a shock to my system.’

The Australian actress claims the pair had a happy marriage.

‘We were in a bubble, just the two of us. We became very dependent on one another.’

Nicole, who is now happily married to country star Keith Urban, married the Hollywood superstar when she was just 23.

‘I was reeling with Tom,’ she now says. ‘I would have gone to the ends of the earth for him…. I was totally smitten – I fell madly, passionately in love.’

But the 45-year-old admits: ‘I was so impulsive and naive.’

Nicole says her life has recovered and she is happier than ever.

‘I’m happier than I’ve ever been in my life,’ she tells DuJour.

‘I’m living in a friend’s house in Nice [to film a biopic of Princess Grace Of Monaco]. My two daughters are with me, Sunday Rose, who’s four, and Faith Margaret, who’s two.

‘My mother is about to fly in from Australia to babysit. Then Keith will be arriving… My family is with me. My family.’

And Nicole says they spend as much time together as they can.

‘My life changed. He is a wonderful, caring man and he makes me feel secure. We don’t ever like to be separated.’

The pair have built a family together, something Nicole, who adopted two children with Tom, called a ‘healing experience’.

‘We have a wonderful home life,’ she said. ‘There’s always music. Keith plays the guitar and piano and drums.

‘He’s always composing music.

‘It’s lovely when you have a baby who picks up the drumsticks and plays, wearing angel wings.’

Knowing what we know NOW about Scientology – and more specifically Tom Cruise – I feel so bad for Nicole. I can’t imagine what that felt like first of all – to have your husband walk out on you, and second of all to have him take your kids and turn them against you. I’m happy that Nicole found happiness with Keith Urban, and I believe she is so much happier now. It’s only taken 11 years to get here.
