Nicole Kidman dazzled in a long red dress on the red carpet in Cannes on Friday - and it looks like she forgot to wear a bra to the premiere of ner new film, The Paperboy.

The star, looking gorgeous in the shoulderless gown, also stars in the upcoming HBO movie Hemingway & Gellhorn opposite Clive Owen in the titles of Martha Gellhorn and Ernest Hemingway.

Nicole dedicated her performance to late journalist Marie Colvin, who was killed earlier this year in Syria while covering the conflict in the region.

"I really see her (Colvin) as someone similar to Martha," she tells reporters at the event, "These women are still rare and Martha was the first."
