Sydney: Nicole Kidman, who is sleek, svelte and almost 1.78 metres tall, has inspired ‘Hemingway and Gelhorn’ costume designer Ruth Myers.
Myers was nominated this year for an Emmy for her tailored 1930s and ‘40s-based dress slacks and suits in the HBO movie.
“Nicole has the best bum in the world ... She has the perfect figure,” the Sydney Morning Herald quoted as saying at the recent Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) party.
Myers and other Emmy-nominated costume designers came to celebrate the clothes from many shows and TV movies, including ‘Hemingway and Gelhorn’, ‘American Horror Story’, ‘Downton Abbey’, ‘Once Upon A Time’ and ‘Boardwalk Empire’.
The exhibition, which runs in Los Angeles until October 20, is co-presented by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. The Emmy Awards are announced in Los Angeles on September 23.
On display are the wide-legged, high-waisted trousers, textured beige cardigan and rose-coloured blouse worn by Kidman in her role as Spanish Civil War and World War II correspondent Martha Gelhorn, Hemingway’s third wife.
Myers gave the look - so in line with the current high-waisted pants trend - a contemporary twist, using vintage fabrics recut and redesigned.
