The 56-year-old Oscar winner revealed Thursday that she still turns to her mother Janelle, 83, for advice on her chic ensembles, despite having access to Hollywood’s top stylists.

“As a little girl, I grew up with a grandmother who loved fashion and could sew, and so did my mother. They liked nice clothes. They could make beautiful clothes,” she continued.
‘I saw them sewing, embroidering, knitting and crocheting. And I think when you grow up and you see the people in your household doing that, you’ll love it.”
Nicole was even asked if her mom Janelle had given her feedback on the racy black cutout dress she wore to the CMA Awards in Nashville on Wednesday, where she was joined by her husband Keith Urban.
‘I haven’t heard it yet. I don’t know if that’s a good sign!’ she joked. “She didn’t text me!”
Her country singer husband Keith was coordinated with her in a spotted charcoal shirt and black pants, although he stood out in comically large black square-toed shoes.
The Eyes Wide Shut star, an ambassador for Omega, was on the same page on Thursday night wearing a similar, but more reserved, black dress.

No shame: Earlier this year, she defended one of her more controversial outfits, a schoolgirl-inspired piece for the cover of Vanity Fair’s Hollywood 2022 issue
The look consisted of a tiny pleated gray skirt with pockets dangling underneath, and she paired it with a surprising crop top that looked like she had simply put on a second copy of the same miniskirt, with a few more dangling pockets.
But Nicole defended the sharp look and gave in to her Australian director Baz Luhrmann Vogue Australia that she had ‘begged’ to wear the outfit.
“I was like, ‘No, no, I like this! Can I wear that?'” she recalled, noting that her stylist Katie Grand was shocked.
‘Katie said, “Are you willing to wear that?
!” And I said, “Wear it?! I beg you to wear it!”‘
