Nicole Kidman is practically perfect in every way. No wonder she’s playing Grace Kelly. Part of her perfection is due to her hairstylist, who must be one of the most obsessive people I’ve ever read about. It’s in a good way, though. The attention to detail he puts into doing her hair is just insane. He does research on her previous hairstyles before he even touches her head. His name is John Nollet and he also works on Audrey Tautou and Johnny Depp’s ex, Vanessa Paradis.
Here’s a glimpse into his process and some secrets about Nicky K’s hair. From Vogue Australia via the Herald Sun:
Ten days before the [Cannes] festival, I researched Nicole’s red carpet looks to understand her preferences in term of volume, shapes, textures … to add something different compared to what she had already done during her career. I prepared about 10 moodboards showing her images, paintings, textures and sketches to understand, depending on her reactions, which one she [preferred]. I would have not have been able to create anything magical without listening to her feelings.
Due to her super-tight schedule [I had] to have her coiffure ready in 20 minutes … maximum! To be on time, I used to repeat at night every movement I had to do the day after, in order to be ready to create the coiffure as fast as possible.
[Product placement alert like whoa!] … I washed her hair with L’Oréal Paris Hair Expertise EverCrème Shampoo and Conditioning Spray … Volume is naturally part of curly hair and that is what the coiffure has to play with. [Letting the hair dry] naturally enhances the curls.
Oh my God wait, so this man is responsible for Ms. Kidman’s classy mullet??? Duuuuuuude. Should have busted out more moodboards. Pretty sure he was responsible for this mess as well:
Courtney Stodden is back from her Big Brother UK stint. Hooray! I know we’re all so happy!
We’re coming off of Emmy’s week, where celebs have already worn their best stuff and are now getting back to their regular celeb lives. Let’s take a look at the best, worst, and WTF of the week. Because sometimes you just want to look at photos of celebs and admire what they’re wearing or say shit about them.
This time I’m asking YOU: which look do you think is the best, worst, and most WTF?
Just had to show you Courtney’s full look. You’re welcome. Did she get more surgery while she was there?
Nicole Kidman is a controversial choice for the upcoming Grace Kelly biopic. Controversial for a few reasons, but it seems like the main one is that she’s too old. But it should be noted that the movie isn’t covering the Princess of Monaco’s entire life; it’s mostly about her later years as princess, for which I think Ms. Kidman is well suited.
But see the teaser trailer for yourself and let me know what you think.
It’s time to get ready for the battle of the princess biopics. Kidman’s pal, Naomi Watts, is playing Princess Diana an upcoming film that also drew criticism for its leading lady casting choice.
Would you see Grace of Monaco based on this teaser?

Nicole Kidman was walking around all flawless when paparazzo Carl Wu sped by on his bicycle — on the sidewalk, like an effing jerk — and knocked her down. She was mad. I would be mad too, because people on bikes shouldn’t bike on THE SIDEWALK. Sidewalk’s for regular walkin’, not fancy walkin’. Ms. Kidman is apparently going to press charges. Here’s more on the incident from News.com.au:
Nicole Kidman will press charges after she was knocked over by a paparazzo who crashed into her on a bicycle as she left a fashion show in New York.
Oscar-winner Kidman had just left the Calvin Klein show for New York’s Fashion Week and was returning to the Carlyle Hotel.
As she walked toward the entrance, a freelance photographer named Carl Wu was roaring toward her on his bike, reports TMZ.
Witnesses told TMZ that as Wu got dangerously close to Nicole, he appeared to hit his brakes, but it didn’t do the trick. He slammed into her and she went crashing to the ground. Kidman was helped back up and seemed OK. She was treated for minor injuries to her ankle.
Apparently this dude has also pissed off Lady Gaga.
Here are more pix of Nicky Kids and Carl Wu in their tussle. His face is the perfect expression of, “Bwua?”

Nicole Kidman is playing Grace Kelly in the upcoming biopic Grace of Monaco, which will be out later this year, and while I’m not much of a fan of her work in general, I do think this is a pretty fitting role for her. Sorta. In any case, it’s a massive role playing an iconic figure so it’s something to be celebrated, right? Right. Nicole herself knows what a big deal it was and felt it was an “honor” to bring Grace’s story to life.
From Access Hollywood:
“It was a real honor to play her.
“I hope I captured her essence. I mean, you never know, but it won’t be for lack of trying.”
Who knows what this movie will be like – and to be honest I probably won’t even see it – but the Monaco royal family did give it shit, so take that as you will. Will you see Grace of Monaco or is it total snoozeville? It’ll be out later this year, by the way.
Cannes film festival is going on right now in France and everyone is GLAMMED THE HELL UP. I like it. Here are the looks that stood out to me, for better or worse. But if you want to get right down to it:
BEST: Isla Fisher
WORST: Julianne Moore
I JUST DON’T KNOW: Zhang Yuqi
Carey Mulligan, seen here with Baz Luhrhraznamann. (Luhrmann). She looks gorgeous but holy hell, where’s the rest of her?? Is she okay? Does she know she’s allowed to smile? Even LANA DEL REY is smiling. Jesus.
