Nine Perfect Strangers star Nicole Kidman takes the cover story of American Harper’s Bazaar‘s October 2021 edition lensed by fashion photographer Collier Schorr. In charge of styling was Stella Greenspan, who for the session selected looks from top brands such as Dior, Balenciaga, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Max Mara, The Row, Charvet, Brunello Cucinelli, Prada, and Burberry among others. Beauty is work of hair stylist Tamas Tuzes for R+Co, makeup artist Holly Silius, and manicurist Thuy Nguyen for Static Nails. Set design by Maxim Jezek, with production from Eric Jacobson at Hen’s Tooth Productions.
I suppose the artist spirit, a lot of times, is saying, ‘I don’t care what it’s gonna cost me as a human being, because my thrust is deeply artistic, and that’s probably just a massive push-pull in any person who’s a painter, a writer, you know? If you’re really dedicated to it over a lifetime, that push-pull will collide with your existence and your connections with your family and all the people in your life. How much will that cost them? How much will it cost you personally? And how important is that artistic contribution? – Kidman
Once I knew Nicole was going to do it, there was really nothing to ‘think about.’ I mean, what kind of maniac doesn’t want to work with Kidman? Some things in life you just don’t need to mull over. – Melissa McCarthy on being part of Hulu’s Nine Perfect Strangers TV Series
She’s as good a human being as she is an artist, and that together, I think, only adds to her artistry. It must be the lens through which she looks at life. She really is in touch with all of her humanity. And that’s what we get to witness when we watch her. – Regina Hall
