Nicole Kidman surprisingly altered her stunning, sequined Oscars dress mid-show on Sunday, Feb. 26 — how crazy!
While appearing on the evening’s star-studded red carpet, the 49-year-old actress showed off her custom Armani Privé gown’s pretty, criss-cross strap detail on her back. But, halfway through the 89th Academy Awards, Nicole was spotted with her dress’s straps tied in a halter-style around her neck. So strange!

According to People, the mom-of-four’s changed dress may have been part of an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction. When Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel brought a group of unsuspecting Hollywood tourists — including the now-famous “Gary From Chicago” — through the Dolby Theater during the show, Nicole sweetly hugged several members of the group.
At that time, it appears one of Nicole’s dress straps ripped off from the side of her gown. Thankfully, the Cold Mountain star — or one of her quick-thinking assistants! — seemingly untethered her other strap and then tied the two around her neck.
Nicole attended the A-list event with her handsome husband, Keith Urban, who looked dapper in a classic black tux. The actress and the 49-year-old country star tied the knot in June 2006 and are parents to two daughters, Sunday Rose, 8, and Faith Margaret, 6, together.

This year, Nicole was nominated for the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in the biographical film, Lion. The star has received three other Academy Award nods in the past and has won one of the coveted statues.
She was first nominated for the Best Actress honor in 2002 for her role in Moulin Rouge. She lost that year to Halle Berry for Monster's Ball. In 2003, Nicole was recognized for her film The Hours and she took home the Best Actress award that year. She also received a Best Actress nomination in 2011 for Rabbit Hole, but lost to Natalie Portman for Black Swan.
