Nicole Kidman caused a stir online when she wore a Miu Miu micro skirt reminiscent of a racy school uniform on the cover of Vanity Fair’s February 2022 issue. But the actress, 54, has revealed she will never let critics stop her from taking creative risks in her career. Speaking to Stellar magazine on Sunday, the Moulin Rouge! star said she makes a concerted effort not to hold back when it comes to expressing herself. ‘I make the most random, crazy choices. I call them ‘teenage choices’ because I just don’t ever think of consequences,’ the Hollywood star explained. ‘Part of my brain just doesn’t think like that. I just go, ‘Oh, I’m going to wear that; it reminds me of my school uniform.’ Or ‘Oh my God, yeah, I’d love to do that”.
Nicole also noted that she ‘doesn’t really want to know’ about the ‘hurtful’ things that people may say about her, as it will only prevent her from embracing creative projects in the future. The Oscar winner previously admitted it was her decision to wear the skimpy micro-skirt, and echoed this in her Stellar interview. ‘That was my choice. And yeah, I own it. I’m accountable. Whatever. I take responsibility. Nobody else chose it [the Miu Miu skirt],’ she said.
The skimpiest of the micro mini skirts by Miu Miu costs around US $950 ($1,300 AUD) while a longer version can cost around US $1,150 (AU $1,500). It’s also been featured in Dazed Korea, Elle Korea, Interview Magazine, Vogue Czechoslovakia, and i-D mag among other publications. The skirt has also been spotted on A-listers out and about including Emma Corrin and Saweetie, and has been modeled by Zendaya and Hailey Bieber. It’s also become a social media sensation with the likes of drag superstar Bimini Bon Boulash posing up a storm in the skirt on their Instagram story. The set has become so viral it even has its own Instagram page – @miumiuset.
