Nicole has long been interested in fashion and modelling, and has been known to wear some divisive outfits in the past.

In February 2022, following her Academy Award nomination for her portrayal of Lucille Ball in Being The Ricardos, she was honoured with a cover for Vanity Fair magazine’s annual Hollywood Issue.

The award-winning actress appeared in a cropped grey bustier and matching mini-skirt, reminiscent of a schoolgirl outfit which received plenty of mixed reviews at the time.

The outfit raised many important questions about mature women in Hollywood which you can read about here.
