Nicole Kidman: Becoming a Beauty

She may be one of PEOPLE's Most Beautiful faces now, but that wasn't always the case for Nicole Kidman, 34. During her awkward teenage years, Kidman tells the magazine, it was sister Antonia who got the stares. "We'd walk down the street and people would go, 'Oh Nicole, isn't your sister gorgeous?' " These days, Nicole isn't having any trouble turning heads both onscreen and off. Look back at her stunning transformation through the years.


Kidman and Moulin Rouge director Baz Luhrmann celebrate their Golden Globe wins at a post-awards party in January. "She's this really Aussie girl who's full of life and has this loud, honking laugh," Luhrmann told PEOPLE. As for her physical appearance, he said: "You can do a lot with makeup, but you can't create that luminosity."
