After patiently waiting to get a peek of Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly in Olivier Dahan’s “Grace of Monaco,” critics weren't disappointed by the actress' transformation.
Kidman wore her strawberry blonde locks in a polished updo, and covered her shoulder with a fur shawl while filming the biography in St. Barts, France, earlier this week.
“The ensemble made her a dead ringer for a look that Kelly sported during the early ’60s,” the New York Daily News wrote.
Meanwhile, Us Weekly called the the actress' look “one of her most stunning recreations yet.”
Across the pond, Zoe Saldana was channeling another cultural icon, Nina Simone.
She’s playing the late jazz musician in Cynthia Mort’s “Nina,” which is currently filming in Los Angeles.
When the news that Saldana was up for the role broke in August, some commenters were unsure if she could pull it off.
Well, what do you think? Are you buying Kidman and Saldana as Kelly and Simone, respectively?
“Grace of Monaco" is expected to bow in 2014 and "Nina" is due out in 2013.
