We don't care if it's Botox, Photoshop, witchcraft, or genetics. Whatever Nicole Kidman's doing, it's working. Not only does she look gorgeous and vampy in V Magazine, she manages to make lying around in red lingerie look as classy as playing Bach on a Steinway in a tuxedo while simultaneously sipping Veuve Clicquot.
This is a side of Kidman we've never seen before. When it comes to photo shoots, she's about as shy as her character in Far And Away. And now look at her: all grown-up and flashing her bright-green panties on purpose, with her very own fold-down cover. As usual, V offers a different perspective on a huge star and still manages to do an edgy-yet-high-fashion glossy spread.
We love Nicole's new side; in fact, she's never looked better (although we'll always miss her redhead days). Hopefully, she'll keep it up and show us her bod more often. Maybe we'll even start calling her Nikki. See it in person when V's travel Issue hits newsstands August 30. (V Magazine)
