When actress Nicole Kidman stepped out at the 2017 Emmy Awards, viewers were confused by her choice of footwear for such a prestigious event.
At the 2017 installment of the awards ceremony, "Paddington" actress Nicole Kidman set tongues wagging over her shoes that seemed to clash with her crimson dress and not even match one another.
Kidman won Best Actress in a Limited Series for her role on "Big Little Lies" and shared a kiss with her co-star, Alexander Skarsgård.

NICOLE KIDMAN'S OUTFIT
One thing that stood out about her appearance was the bizarrely mismatched pink heels she wore under her bright red tea-dress-length Calvin Klein by Appointment dress. Viewers of the awards ceremony pointed out that they appeared to be totally different.
As the actress made her way down the red carpet in her ankle-length red dress, her pink strappy heels - also by Calvin Klein - were on full display to the cameras.

The right heel had sparkling diamante embellishments on the front strap, while the other one seemed to be lacking that particular detailing with just a bare pink strap over her toes.
When the actress got onstage, it became clear that the shoes weren’t a mix-up but a purposeful style choice. While the right heel had a sparkly front strap, the left heel had the same beaded detailing on the strap that was around her ankle.

Even though the shoe confusion was cleared up, people still didn't like the style or the strange trend. However, at the Paris Fashion Week spring/summer '17, Céline had sent red and white mismatched booties down the runway.
The shoes may have been seen as quirky, but their contrast is also their complimenting factor, making it a trend to latch on to.

Kidman, however, seemed utterly unconcerned about the opinions of others. The actress was feeling lovey-dovey as she kicked off the evening by putting on a very public display of affection with her husband on the red carpet.
To complete her Calvin Klein custom-made dress and Calvin Klein shoes were Harry Winston jewels and a Shiffon Co. pinky finger ring.

Keith Urban stood beside his wife in a classic black suit with a matching tie while sporting a pair of lace-up dress shoes with heeled soles to make up for the height difference between them.
This was not the only time Urban made a statement beside his wife on the red carpet. On various occasions, he has been known to wear shoes with platforms or chunky soles.

Kidman has been married for 15 years to Urban, 53, and was seen smiling happily as she posed with her other half. The pair were seen kissing and hugging while the photographers eagerly snapped away.
Kidman was clearly feeling affectionate during the evening as she later shared a kiss with Skarsgård as he went up to accept his Emmy for Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie.
She got even more attention when she failed to acknowledge her two adopted children with ex-husband Tom Cruise in her acceptance speech. The actress failed to mention Isabella and Connor Cruise.

Instead, she tearfully thanked her two daughters Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret, whom she shares with Urban. The actress said through tears:
“I am also a mother and a wife, I have two little daughters Sunny and Faith and my darling Keith.”
Besides the Emmy Awards, Kidman has always graced the red carpet in style. She always knows how to pull off any outfit on the red carpet that will make you wish you could steal her wardrobe.

KIDMAN'S OTHER RED CARPET LOOKS
Kidman has mastered how to slay on the red carpet with bold sartorial statements. From sharply tailored suits to tiers of ruffles, sequined column gowns — you name it, she has graced the red carpet with it.
For the 2019 Golden Globes, she walked down the carpet in a sequined burgundy column gown by Michael Kors. The long-sleeved dress featured a slit, allowing Kidman to put her toned legs on display.

At the 90th Annual Academy Awards red carpet, Kidman was all about the jewel tones. She opted for a strapless neckline complemented by the statement bow at the front of the dress. A dramatic slit accompanied the dress just below the bow.
For the 70th Cannes Film Festival, she also sported a Calvin Klein by Appointment tulle gown. The voluminous tulle gown featured a bustier at the top that cinched her waist nicely.
