There was a time when Nicole Kidman regularly topped best dressed lists with her sartorial choices. Without meaning any offense, it's been a while since she's popped up on our red-carpet radar — until Wednesday night. 

Kidman attended the London Film Festival to promote her film "Lion," and went to old favorite Giorgio Armani for the occasion. According to the brand, Kidman chose to wear a "Giorgio Armani Privé black silk velvet dress with tubular details and pockets embroidered with black crystals and black silk satin cape." A cape! This could have been a very buttoned-up look, but the slits at the chest and legs are just the right amount of sexy. Plus, it gives Kidman her very own "Angelina's Left Leg" moment, all the more advantageous to show off her black, bejeweled stilettos. 

Of course, she goes for the classic pop of red at the lips — can't go wrong with that! — and a low chignon. It's a simple but powerful look that reminds us why Kidman has been a style icon for all these years.
