Nicole Kidman's Plunging Cut-Out Dress Had the Coolest Hardware

The Oscar winner has never been one to skip the glitz, glam, and flashbulbs, and tonight's Country Music Association Awards were no exception, with the superstar coming in a plunging black gown with side cutouts and the most unusual hardware we've seen on the carpet in a long time.

Kidman, who attended with her husband, Keith Urban, coordinated her brilliant silver choker and Rainbow K hoop earrings, which also occurred to match the triangular-shaped hardware that linked the bodice of her gown to its skirt.

The geometric metal decoration created a series of large cutouts that highlighted Kidman's belly, sides, and shoulders. A smattering of rings and a gleaming bracelet completed the sleek and stealthy image.

On the red carpet, Kidman also carried a small black bag. Kidman wore her hair straight and parted down the centre for her glam look, which highlighted her super-long lashes and peach blush.

According to Taste of Country, Urban will be presenting at the ceremony tonight at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. Kelsea Ballerini, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Luke Combs, and fan favourites Dan + Shay will perform tonight.

The CMA Awards are given out every year to "recognise outstanding achievement in the country music industry." This year's Humanitarian Award will be presented to Darius Rucker, well known as the lead singer for Hootie & the Blowfish.
