It doesn't take much to capture a beautiful pic of Nicole Kidman, but leave it to Terry Richardson to bring out the sex appeal, too. In the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar, the bombshell steps in front of his lens in a typically Terry-esque shoot wrought with popped booties, smizes, and race-track couture (that's a thing, right?). And, off camera, Kidman was bringing it, too. But, there was a time, she admits (yes, around the time she was married to that guy — what's his name again? — Tom Cruise), that she didn't feel so confident: “In those early years, it was like, ‘I’m here and I’m clutching onto your arm, and it all feels a little overwhelming and really strange. And I was shy. Deeply shy. I didn’t feel comfortable at all." Now, with hubbie Keith Urban, though, things have started to change, “He just gave me confidence through just being very kind to me and understanding me, opening me up to trying things, my sexuality, those sorts of things.” Indeed, we see that sexuality blossoming all over this glossy – and in other recent editorials, like her erotically-charged V shoot. Which Nicole Kidman do you prefer: The golden Emilio Pucci/Cartier-clad cover model or the flag girl looking over her shoulder in a printed mini dress?
