Vanity Fair spoke with Nicole who shared her rules for fashion and dressing for the red carpet.

“I want to be able to dance. That’s an important rule for a dress—to be able to dance. At least wiggle!”

Fresh off from debuting four highly anticipated new film and television projects at the Cannes Film Festival and ruling the red carpet with her impeccable fashion, Nicole Kidman is kicking off the summer season with some fun. The Oscar-winning actress attended the annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic on Saturday afternoon at Liberty State Park to celebrate the highly popular sporting event’s 10th anniversary.

Vanity Fair caught up with Kidman at the chic polo match for a conversation about her fashion rules, the secrets to her prolific career, and what’s on her bucket list—it involves conquering Machu Picchu.

You were the belle of the ball at the Cannes Film Festival two weeks ago. How did you handle all the numerous outfit changes?

I had the best time at Cannes. I went to Australia and I’ve been in England after Cannes and as much as people talk about the films, they really want to talk about the dresses. I’m like, ‘Oh my God!’ Fashion has such a power. I’ve always loved fashion. I love embracing it and it’s rare that you get to really dress up. Trust me, I don’t dress up at home. So when there’s a chance to dress up like at Cannes, I embrace it. I love doing it and it’s fun. I also love the designers. I love that they care so much. When the Calvin Klein dress arrived, the skirt was just exquisite. I mean our jaws dropped. And then you look at the Armani dress—the beading and the couture, it’s just beautiful. It’s a work of art. All of that is hand done.

Do you have any rules or criteria when choosing a red carpet dress?

Absolutely. The only one that I consider is to feel relaxed. Even in something like the Raf dress, I was relaxed. I sat next to my director with huge amounts of the dress cascading over him. It was funny. I also want to be able to dance. That’s an important rule for a dress—to be able to dance. At least wiggle!

Your career is on a hot streak. What’s been the key to your success?

It’s a roller coaster—so as the long as the passion is there, that helps. I have the passion still. I still love what I do and that’s really important. I love being on a set, working with actors, working with a director who is strong in their vision—that still is so gratifying to me. All of the rest, you never know how things are going to turn out, but I still have the passion. That’s the simplest way to put it. A lot of times you also have to be willing to fall over and get back up and take chances. I try to still live my life in that way of taking chances and not playing safe. I’m always trying to go where I have not been. But I’m up for fun.

On June 20, you are celebrating your 50th birthday. What is something you know now that you wish you knew before?

It’s not so much what I wish I knew before, but the idea of just embracing things and being happy. My grandmother was good to me before she passed away and she told me, “Be happy Nicki. Pass that on.” I mean it’s the easiest words to say and yet to actually embrace it, it’s hard which is why in Cannes I was determined to have fun and be happy. Through my work I get to be creative and express all the different emotions and that makes me happy, but in my life, particularly with children, you just want to put joy into their lives. So that’s what I emphasize to myself now more than before, to provide love and happiness. When you can choose to love, always choose the love.

What is something you would like to achieve next?

I want to start hiking in different places around the world with my husband and our kids. We have kids just big enough, but they complain. We are like, “We are going on a walk for two hours” and they are like, ‘Ughh.’ I would really like to get them hiking out into different parts of the world now like Machu Picchu. I want to do some of that on foot. I love the idea of backpacking and walking and talking as a family. That’s my goal!

Nicole is featured on the cover of the July issue of InStyle magazine … they highlight how her star is being reborn this year.

She may be at yet another peak in her storied 30-plus-year career, but the greatest character Nicole Kidman has ever built is her own.

Take a seat at a suburban Nashville diner on a random morning and you may see a tall, curly-haired Australian actress eating an egg-white omelette amongst the regulars. On this particular spring morning, waiting in the corner booth of Noshville, I hear a hoot of laughter and then Nicole Kidman appears, casually escorted by country singer Vince Gill. Before sitting down for a full breakfast one booth over, he drops her off with me and announces that he’s turning 60 the next day. “Say hello to my boyfriend,” he says to Kidman, referring to her husband, Keith Urban.

Noshville is quite something. It’s a NewYork–style deli in Green Hills populated by a demographic that makes Kidman and me look as if we belong at the kids’ table. “Oh, I love this place,” she says, bopping around like, yes, a kid. “I do everything here.”

Kidman, who turns 50 this summer, is in her element, both physically and metaphorically. At the start of a four-month break from back-to-back projects, she’s taking a breath and spending time with Urban and their two daughters, Sunday and Faith. After a three-decades-plus acting career—both amply rewarded and deliberately esoteric—she is in the unusual and glorious position of coming off the massive HBO hit series Big Little Lies, which, in this age of binge-watching, was addictive appointment viewing. The miniseries, co-produced by Kidman and Reese Witherspoon, among others, and co-starring Laura Dern and Shailene Woodley, was pretty mainstream for Kidman, and its success gave her an old-fashioned kick. “I was like, ‘Yeah, I’ll do this because I want to work with my friends.’ ” She laughs. “And, luckily, my friends are talented.”

June 23 sees the release of Sofia Coppola’s gothic Civil War drama, The Beguiled, a remake of the 1971 Clint Eastwood classic. Kidman plays the headmistress of a girls’ school faced with a wolf in Colin Farrell’s clothing. Buttoned-up but ballsy, her character is the opposite of Kidman herself, who is the dictionary definition of sensitive. But I guess that’s why they call it acting.
