Audrey Hepburn's Oscar-winning look in 1964's "My Fair Lady," left, inspired Nicole Kidman's recent black-and-white ensemble.
Kidman, 45, wore a black-and-white outfit that the Daily Mail says was designed in honor of a famed look Hepburn wore in the 1964 film "My Fair Lady." Among the eight Oscars that film won was one for costume design.
"It's inspired by 'My Fair Lady,'" the Daily Mail quotes Kidman as saying. "It's one of my favorite movies. We decided to do something that was fun and a bit different."
Other media reports noted that Kidman's fashion elegance may also have been inspired by her 2014 movie, "Grace of Monaco," in which she plays American actress turned Monaco princess Grace Kelly.
American designer L’Wren Scott designed Kidman's dress, and the Sydney Morning Herald reports
that Kidman's hat was made from recycled plastic bottles by British milliner Stephen Jones.
