Nic looks stunning on the cover of the new June/July issue of Australian Harper’s Bazaar, posing on the front cover with 18 month old Faith Margaret! Nicole looks amazing, and I can’t wait to see the photos and read the interview inside. It’s such an elegant cover.

Aussie Harper’s Bazar editor Edwina McCann explains how the photo came about:

Nicole Kidman is no stranger to criticism. She faced plenty after the birth in December 2010 of Faith Margaret, a much-yearned for sister for Sunday Rose. Faith was famously born with the help of a “gestational carrier” as is the common term in the US. No doubt there will be those who throw yet more criticism at her for allowing her children to feature in photos in this month’s Harper’s BAZAAR. So I wanted to explain what happened behind the scenes.

Kidman was booked for our cover shoot with a young Australian photographer and regular BAZAAR contributor, Will Davidson. The shoot took place a few hours out of Sydney in a country home with a perfect red dirt road, as envisioned by Davidson. Kidman arrived on time, without entourage, and even spotted the crew not a coffee but a coffee van — “my treat” — when she was told the cost was beyond the shoot budget. She was a willing photographic subject, talked to me in an unguarded and genuinely warm manner before the pictures, and later waited obligingly until dark for a specific Gucci dress to arrive. (In the end the light was so low that the shot didn’t make the cut.) Later in the afternoon, Sunday Rose and Faith arrived after their sleeps to see Mummy. Kidman didn’t want to put them down; Sunday Rose donned one of the tuxedo jackets from the clothing racks because it was getting chilly. The photographer then took some shots of Kidman with the girls solely for her family album.


When McCann saw the images, she knew they had struck gold.

”They [the pictures] say so much more about Nicole Kidman than anything I could write in words. They are magic, raw and full of intense love, and clearly show her devotion to her children,” she told PS.

After some convincing, Kidman agreed to have the photos published and saw the final product on Thursday night.

Kidman explained: ”I think it’s OK, because you can’t see their faces; they’re still protected. I feel it’s a really lovely way to celebrate being a mum and being a family, and they’re my daughters, and they’re Keith’s daughters [laughs] … you can see the hair!”


This new issue hits Aussie news-stands on Monday May 14th. If you pick up a copy of this (which you undoubtedly will!) and can contribute scans of it to us, please get in touch :D

"She's one of those actresses whom you're slightly in awe of. You imagine her as the movie star from the front covers of magazines, that she's untouchable and that somehow gets in the way of her being human and funny. But she really is good fun. You meet her and discover she's just funny and girly. She's really giggly and you can make her laugh - a lot! I'd be very rude in front of her, swear and belch, and she'd say "Ew-an! - like a big sister with her younger brother." - Ewan McGregor on Nicole
