Awards season has officially arrived, and with it, head-turning red carpet fashion. Nicole Kidman is a bona fide red carpet pro who admittedly looks forward to getting dolled up. Speaking to reporters on Friday, January 4, at the 8th Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts International Awards held at the Mondrian Hotel in L.A., the Golden Globes nominee revealed that one of her favorite aspects of awards season is dressing up for these events. On occasion, she even has two special helpers, her young daughters — Sunday Rose, ten, and Faith Margaret, eight —  whom she shares with husband Keith Urban

"They are sometimes interested and sometimes not," Nicole told HOLA! USA of her daughters. "It depends on what toys they are playing with and what playdates they have over." She laughingly added, “That’s the honest answer of an eight-year-old.”

Aside from dressing up, the silver screen star also enjoys using awards season as a means of networking. She shared, "I also like meeting people that I’ve never before because it’s actually astounding how you can meet directors and different people and how that can actually eventuate into collaborating on something else in the future."

Nicole kicked off the season on a stylish note, stunning in a monochrome design at the star-studded ceremony on Friday. The actress wore a statement Miu Miu gown that featured a ruffled white bodice and form-fitting black skirt. The Big Little Lies star completed her gorgeous look by sweeping her golden locks up into an elegant updo for the occasion.
