Carrie Bradshaw, eat your heart out.
The Hours actress Nicole Kidman has bared it all for shoe designer Jimmy Choo in the company's latest ad campaign, proving that she's still looking fierce in her 40's. Despite her amazing figure, it was apparently the mother of three's acting resume that inspired creative director Sandra Choi to hire her to sell their shoes.
"I love Nicole Kidman's openness to embracing a new character and each season she transforms into a new personality that embodies the spirit of the collection... Her poses are striking yet unexpected and her natural beauty is mesmerizing. She exudes feminine confidence and there's a palpable sense of energy to the pictures," Choi said in a statement..
Kidman - who is married to country singer and American Idol judge Keith Urban - is pictured in one photo (to the right) wearing nothing but a purse and stockings while donning a blazer that barely covers her chest matched with barely-there panties in another (seen after the jump).

+ The Kardashian trio unveiled their latest clothing collection, which they launched in collaboration with British retailer Lipsy. Unsurprisingly, Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe model off their floral, curve-hugging dresses in the adverts for the line (perhaps it's the only way they'd be able to sell it?). Major kudos that they're not of the typical sequined and glittery New Year's Eve dress fare, but at the same time, I can't imagine women flocking to the stores (or in Americans' cases, online store) for a summery frock when they're looking for something festive.
+ Britney Spears surprised fans with a Twitter photo showcasing her new hair color: platinum blonde. Love it or leave it?
+ Tyra Banks seems to have joined Jennifer Lawrence in the war against negative body image words, claiming that she refuses to utter "plus-size," instead opting for "fiercely real." Not sure how quickly the latter will catch on, but it's a start!
The model-turned-designer recently teamed up with the Gap-owned retailer to put out a collection for next month, and oh how I'd like to get my hands on some of those pieces! From a ruffled, floral jumpsuit and lacy, blue little dress to patterned, deep green suit and the perfect New Year's Eve dress, Scott designed something for every woman (more photos after the jump) but yet with an added touch of her sophisticated, high fashion charm.
You can dust off your credit cards for December 5 (wisely launched during the holiday season!).

+ Realizing that there is actually a profit in larger-sized clothing now that their business is failing, Abercrombie & Fitch - who raised controversy this year over refusing to sell larger sizes for women - has decided to eat their words and sell larger sizes to "compete against rivals."
+ Jennifer Lawrence - who joins Pamela Anderson and Kristin Chenoweth in getting pixie cuts this month - says that she cut her hair short because "it just couldn't get any uglier."
+ Alessandra Ambrosia is feeling a little nostalgic as this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show approaches, as she offers up a candid backstage photo of her and fellow Angel Adriana Lima from 13 years ago.
+ Mario Testino shot Winona Ryder for next month's cover of V magazine - and is she as stunning as ever! Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele styles her biker chick looks, which seem to reflect the character she portrays in her upcoming film, Homefront.
No one does the mysterious and brooding type better than Robert Pattinson, which is likely why the folks over at Dior casted him as the mysterious, brooding love interest opposite model Camille Rowe.
Released earlier today, the black-and-white (save for the end - ooh that's artsy!) clip sees Pattinson and Rowe as a fashionable-but-rebellious couple smoking cigarettes and causing a ruckus at a fancy dinner hall. Because, naturally, when you wear Dior Homme, you're compelled to act like you're in a French New Wave film.

+ Already the face of one of their fragrances, actress Amanda Seyfried was tapped for Givenchy's Fall/Winter ad campaign, which also features Carine Roitfeld (who styled the ads) and her daughter Julia.
+ Speaking of Givenchy, beneath her Riccardo Tisci dress, Jessica Chastain wore matching Spanx in order to avoid becoming another actress at the Cannes Film Festival to experience an embarrassing crotch flash.
+ Helping out brides who want to wed on a budget, Target has announced a wedding dress collection priced between $99.99-$129.99, featuring an array of styles and cuts for sizes 2 through 28. The retail giant will also offer bridesmaids dresses in their online store.
+ Having already been at the center of a sexual discrimination lawsuit in Tokyo, Prada is now being pressued by The High Commissioner for Human Rights at the U.N. to cease its egregious practices against female employees.
+ Considering she has both the face and body for high fashion, it's no wonder that actress Rooney Mara has signed with Dior to lend her face to their Down Town fragrance campaign. Naturally, her face is so gorgeously distracting that it's barely apparent that the photo is an ad for a perfume.
+ Model Doutzen Kroes imitates Angelina Jolie's famous 2010 Oscar dress, showing off some serious leggage at the Cannes Film Festival in Atelier Versace (albeit, looking somewhat like a superhero).
+ Despite her doctor's orders to avoid tight-fitting shoes, a very pregnant Kim Kardashian was spotted desperately trying to squeeze into her Givenchy heels.
+ Harper's Bazaar features supermodel Christy Turlington on next month's cover, which notes that she's still fabulous at 44 - as if we still didn't need reminding since she turned 40.
American Idol's new judge Nicki Minaj has undergone an unusual makeover for her Elle cover.
While most stars get done-up for their magazine cover transformations, the stylists at Elle convinced the rapper to ditch her colorful outfits and theatre makeup for a more natural look.
The star even admitted to the fashion glossy how difficult it was for her to avoid her usual makeup routine: "When I saw myself with barely any makeup at, it was such a... like, I'm so, so attached to my pink lipstick, it's hard. I feel that it's become a part of me. To go in front of the camera, without pink lips or big ol' crazy lashes - you know, nothing - I felt naked. It was scary! So this photo shoot was a real accomplishment in my eyes."
Styled in a Tom Ford jacket with American Apparel leggings for the cover, the 30 year-old dons Jeremy Scott and Dolce & Gabbana in the rest of the editorial (seen after the jump).

+ Despite her over-the-top "plastic," Barbie-centric image, Nicki Minaj swears that she has never undergone plastic surgery on her face.
You know that V has got to be out of ideas for its cover if it resorts to featuring Rihanna and Kate Moss in their birthday suits. Yawn. Haven't we seen this before? Mario Testino shot the covers for this "Dynamic Duos" issue - on newsstands February 28 - one of which Kate's leg could
eerily easily double as Rihanna's arm.
What do you think of V's latest issue - over it or love it?
