Nicole Kidman debuts her childrens’ (Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret) first media photoshoot (minus their faces) in the current issue of Harper’s Bazaar Australia. Websites in Australia and overseas alike have been buzzing about the cover in the past week (as was Harper’s intention) as the visual feature projects Mrs Urban in a new light – less an actress and more of her other role – a loving mother and cherished wife. These shots, albeit non-humanly flawless, showcase natural, simplistic beauty through the contrast of sophisticated black with stunningly woody, earthy tones in the backdrop.
As an avid subscriber (I won’t lie, having those amazing subscriber-only covers delivered to my doorstep is nothing short of amazing), I actually received this issue over a week ago, and from the first instant couldn’t hold back my enthusiasm to blog about this faster. However, with a dodgy scanner and camera (yes, I do still call myself a communications student), I could only wait until a kind online stranger decided to upload the images themselves.
Well, this still hasn’t happened so I have decided to go directly to the source – and smartly enough, they only decided up upload 1/5 of the photoshoot. Still, I’d like to share it with you, so here we go:
The making of us

Kidman with daughters Faith Margaret and Sunday Rose. On having them in the photoshoot: ''I think it's OK, because you can't see their faces; they're still protected. I feel it's a really lovely way to celebrate being a mum and being a family."
“Wait, that’s it?” I hear you scream in fury. Yes, I sincerely apologise, but if you want more, you’ll have to start supporting the magazine industry and pick up the glossy issue for yourself!
Psssst: Check this out. Oh, Herald Sun… sigh.
