We may be (somewhat futilely) embracing summer here but Nicole Kidman, being in Sydney, is all about an Autumn/Winter palette and so she has chosen to channel a chic deciduous tree.
That's the only reason we can come up with for her ensemble of scarlet cardigan, tan skirt and auburn hair while sitting on a crimson sofa against a warm gold wall.
And what was Nicole embracing foliage carotenoid colours for? For the Gold Week Telethon raising money for Sydney's Children's Hospital, that's what.
Nicole took to the phone lines to take donations from Channel Nine viewers as part of the initiative along with other Australian celebs. A smart move because as well as being a nice thing to do it means we feel bad about questioning her outfit choice. Even if it is a bit schoolmarm-meets-leaf-pile.
