London was buzzing last night with the world premiere of Nine. With a star-studded cast, it was as though the Oscars had come to town - including the the designer gowns! Kate Hudson led the charge in a white carefully-constructed strapless dress by Atelier Versace. It was great to see her play up her cheeky side by showing a bit of leg. Penelope Cruz also pulled one out of the bag in a stunning Ralph Lauren lavender beaded gown with ruffled hem. But it was Nicole Kidman that really missed her mark. The Aussie actress failed to inspire in a rather mumsy white skirt suit (what's with Nic and white/cream?). At least she got it right with the shoes - a pair of nude-brown Azzedine Alaia heels.
