May 26 2013 - 3:43pm

When you're a jury member at the Cannes Film Festival, like Nicole Kidman [1] was for 2013's big event, stepping up your beauty and style A-game comes with the territory. Last year, fashion darling Diane Kruger [2] made a sartorial impression [3] during her turn on the jury, and this year, Nicole aimed to please and then some. From an impressively structured pompadour ponytail to some braided updos that will leave you in awe, Nicole's Cannes beauty looks (including her makeup and nails) are now visible up close from every angle.

For the Cannes closing ceremony and the Zulu premiere, Nicole chose a romantic makeup palette of soft red lipstick and a subtle smoky eye.
