She’s known for playing passionate women on screen, but now actress Nicole Kidman has credited her “strong sexuality” for making her who she is away from the camera too.
The 51-year-old Hollywood actress has completely transformed in a stunning new photoshoot for Marie Claire magazine’s US October issue, showing off her incredible figure in a series of dazzling photos.
Posing in a skintight nude lace dress and towering red heels, Nicole shows off her slim waist in one photo, letting the flimsy material cling to her while leaving a huge fur shawl draped round her arms.
With her darker red hair in soft waves around her face, she throws her head slightly back and smiles with her eyes closed in the seductive shot, appearing completely relaxed and looking a million dollars in front of the camera.
“Part of the trajectory of success is failure. You've got to be allowed to fall and get back up and have a second chance and a third chance and a fourth chance." – @NicoleKidman on the importance of living and learning.

Meanwhile, her cover photo shows off her flawless complexion as she poses close up to the camera with her head resting on one hand and her hair loose covering half of her face.
Opening up in an exclusive chat with the magazine, Keith Urban’s wife admitted while she uses both her head and her heart when it comes to her work, she’s largely dominated by her heart.
“If you don’t come from a feeling place, you just end up with an enormous amount of technique,” she added. “I have this [brains], but that can be overruled. It fluctuates too. I have a strong sexuality. It’s a huge part of who I am and my existence.”

Crediting her feminist parents with giving her a strong upbringing, the actress said she’d often be teased for their “radical” views but can now see it as a huge gift she’s carried with her into adulthood.
“I think once you have children, your resilience is built, and your ability to go, ‘OK, I can’t wallow…'” she added to the mag.
It comes after the star donned one of her most vibrant outfits yet at the Michael Kors New York Fashion Week runway show recently.
Nicole opted for a timeless style with ruffled long sleeves and a high neckline, managing to look effortlessly radiant in the black-and-white polka dot frock with bright yellow flowers littered from head to toe.
