Nicole Kidman is lending her Balenciaga wedding gown to an exhibition about love.
The Oscar-winning actress who tied the knot with her second husband, country singer Keith Urban in 2006, has revealed she’s planning to lend out one of her most prized possessions to Love Is… Australian Wedding Fashion, an exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, Australia, that will feature more than 60 outfits worn by famous Australian brides and grooms.
“I’m giving my wedding dress, the Balenciaga one that Nicolas Ghesquiere did for me, to an Australian exhibit called Love,” she told America’s InStyle magazine. “I’ll support anything that supports love. Truly. Isn’t it the essence of everything? It can heal so many things.”
“Good love, sweet love, kind love, gentle love, powerful love. There are so many different forms of love, which then leads to loss, which then leads to all the primary emotions. We all know children who were raised with love. You can see them.”
The exhibition will also feature an array of wedding dresses from various eras, dating to Australia’s oldest surviving wedding dress, which was worn by Ann Marsden in 1822, through to colonial fashions and outfits from the 1920s, the 1960s to the modern day.
