The 45-year-old mother of four captured by famed celeb photographer Mario Testino. In one shot, the pale Australian actress reclines in a tiny, see-through red lace lingerie.
With teased, 80s-style platinum blonde hair and dramatic makeup, Kidman shows off her toned legs in another shot, wearing a black-and-pink bikini top and a neon miniskirt. Kidman also opened up about signing on to 'The Hours', her Oscar-winning role, hours after divorcing Tom Cruise back in 2001.
"If you're being completely drained in your personal life and you're never being nourished there, it's very hard to make it work. But sometimes, if you meet the right person who will mine it, and you're open to being mined, it can really work," said Kidman, who was who was inspired by the film's director Stephen Daldry.
"Stephen was able to mine me. I was crazy in love with him, and so I was like, I'll do whatever, because I love you. I gave him every part of me that I could give him."
