Ooh, who's that girl in Jimmy Choo's new campaign? It's none other than Academy Award winning actress, Nicole Kidman. The brand has just released the images of the Autumn Winter 2013 ad with Nicole taking the starring role, but rather than the fair-haired lady we're used to, she's gone all Hitchcock on us.
The images explore the themes of film noir so playing the Hitchcock heroine makes perfect sense. Photographed by Mikael Jansson, Ms Kidman plays the seductive protagonist oozing empowered glamour and sporting a rather fetching crimson wig. We, naturally, love.
'I really enjoyed being able to play a role that was strong, sexy and in control,' says Nicole of the campaign. 'I got into a relationship with the photographer and Mikael is very intuitive, he knows what I am thinking and feeling and is able to translate it through the camera.'
Indeed, NK plays the femme fatale remarkably well. Is anyone else reminded of her killer turn in To Die For? In one shot, Choo's 'Dane' lattice booties in claret frame her ankles gorgeously while the 'Ciggy' clutch is suspended languorously from her fingertips. In another, the actress provocatively caresses her ankle to show off her 'Talan' shoes – a pointy-toe stiletto with a t-strap and bow detail – while wearing little more than a crisp white shirt.
Creative Director Sandra Choi is understandably chuffed with the campaign coup. 'Nicole has perfectly captured the mood of our AW13 collection; her character portrays the multi-faceted qualities of the Jimmy Choo woman for this season – strong, sexy with a beguiling sense of mystery,' she says.
