Nicole Kidman has stunned us all with her age-defying beauty once again.

The Australian-American actress, 56, left fans’ jaws on the floor when they realised how old she actually is following her appearance at the New York premiere of Expats.

Nicole plays Margaret in the TV series, which is based on the 2016 novel The Expatriates and explores the lives of a tight-knit group of expatriates living in Hong Kong.

Celebrating the Amazon Prime series’ release, Big Little Lies star Nicole showed up in a gorgeous backless gown with a cowl neck design and spaghetti straps just about holding the fabric together.

The daring black number put her at serious risk of a wardrobe malfunction, with a split on one side and up the thigh.

Clearly unbothered by the thought of showing more than she’d like to, however, Nicole posed elegantly for cameras, a hand on her hip as her racy gown highlighted her toned physique.

She showcased her six-pack abs and ultra-toned back, braving the chilly January weather for the sake of fashion.

The blonde beauty wore her strawberry locks in loose waves over one shoulder, enhancing her beauty with copper eyeshadow and a rosy lip.

She completed her glam ensemble with classy diamond earrings, a sparkling bracelet, a ring, and a watch.

As photos from the event surfaced online, social media users were in awe as they all said the same thing.

X user HemantN_3J commented: ‘she’s ageing sooooooo beautifully’.

‘She looks amazing’, declared AlexisLexiJu.

‘Still got it’, wrote ThekrazymaN_.

Nicole’s head-turning premiere look comes not long after she spoke candidly about being a woman in her fifties in working in Hollywood.

Speaking on Stellar’s Something To Talk About podcast, Nicole reflected on the hysteria surrounding her 2022 Vanity Fair mico-skirt photoshoot and her fashion choices.

‘I make the most random, crazy choices. I call it “teenage choices” because I don’t ever think of the consequences,’ she shared.

She added that her confidence when it comes to clothing derives from her brushing off societal pressures and expectations.

‘I just try to keep in that place, because otherwise, I think you get scared or worried about what people think,’ she said. 

In a bid to remain oblivious to public opinions on her, she exclaimed: ‘Don’t tell me. I don’t really want to know. It’ll stop me from doing what I want to do.’

Her latest project, Expats – directed by Lulu Wang – Nicole’s acting skills were put to the test, but there was one scene she refused to film.

Speaking to the Guardian newspaper about her character – who loses her young son early on – Nicole recalled of shooting: ‘I said, “I cannot, cannot do this.” It was like when a donkey just goes, “I’m not going”.’

On feeling especially vulnerable filming in Hong Kong, she added: ‘I was alone in Hong Kong without my family, which was a terrible mistake.

‘I couldn’t just get on a plane and get to them. And they couldn’t get to me. That affected the performance, to the degree that it also affected my psyche.

‘But it was like the domestic violence storyline in Big Little Lies. I think that people go through this, my job is to be the conduit and perform it to its absolute authentic truth.

‘And if I’m not doing that, then I’m not serving why I work as an actor, which is to artistically connect to the way life is, in all its pain and glory.’

Expats is released on Amazon Prime on January 26.
