Nicole Kidman is mercilessly mocked for her ‘bizarre’ runway walk at the Balenciaga fashion show


Nicole Kidman has been roasted online over her catwalk debut at Balenciaga’s Haute Couture show during Paris Fashion Week on Wednesday.

The Oscar winner, 55, turned heads in a one-shouldered silver gown with detailing across the midriff and a set of opera gloves as she strutted down the runway alongside reality star Kim Kardashian and supermodel Naomi Campbell.

However, it was the Stepford Wives star’s stilted, robotic walking style that really had fans talking.

‘I could have sworn I’ve seen Nicole Kidman walk like a human before, but you wouldn’t know it from that Balenciaga runway she just did,’ one critic tweeted. 

‘Why [are] they walking as if they just rose from their graves,’ another added, referring to both Kidman and Kardashian.

‘If you think Kim’s walk was awkward, please go and see Nicole Kidman’s [crying emoji],’ someone else tweeted.

Several users pointed out the marked difference between the catwalk technique of seasoned model Naomi Campbell versus Kidman, who had never set food on the runway. 

‘That’s Nicole Kidman. She’s a phenomenal actress and very tall. She does walk like a statue that just came to life [laughing/crying emoji]. The only ‘model’ in this is Naomi Campbell,’ one user claimed. 

Others poked fun at Kidman’s outfit, comparing the metallic frock to an emergency blanket or a sheet of crumpled tin foil.

‘Now, why would they go and dress Nicole Kidman in a space blanket for a fashion show? Space blanket meets toga party, actually,’ one Twitter user quipped. 

‘Can’t believe Nicole Kidman made foil look good,’ another tweeted. 

However others rushed to Nicole’s defence, with one tweeting: ‘Everyone talking about Nicole and Kim’s walks, like hello, they aren’t model’s like Naomi is’.

Nicole was joined by the likes of Kim, Naomi, Dua Lipa and Bella Hadid on the star-studded catwalk. 

Kidman’s eyebrow-raising catwalk appearance comes five years after she was ridiculed for her now-infamous ‘seal clap’ at the Oscars in 2017. 

Footage from the ceremony went viral after fans noticed the star’s unusual clapping style.  

However other users rushed to Nicole's defence, with one tweeting: 'Everyone talking about Nicole and Kim's walks, like hello, they aren't model's like Naomi is'

Kidman’s fingers were oddly outstretched as she applauded the winners, with only the heels of her hands appearing to make contact. 

Speaking to The Kyle and Jackie O Show weeks later, the Moulin Rouge! star laughed off the incident and explained why she hadn’t wanted her fingers to touch. 

Nicole said she didn’t want to damage the 119 carats’ worth of diamonds on her hands, including a 13.58-carat pearl-shaped diamond ring set in platinum.    

‘It was really awkward, and I was like, ‘Gosh, I really want to clap,” she said. 

‘I don’t want to not be clapping, which would be worse right? ‘Why isn’t Nicole clapping?”
