Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman proved they are couple goals on the 95th Academy Awards (The Oscars) red carpet.
The country superstar and the award-winning actress strutted down the red carpet hand in hand at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.
Urban, wearing a classic all black tuxedo, and Kidman, donning a gorgeous custom black Giorgio Armani Privé high leg slit gown complete with silver beaded roses, walked the carpet with big smiles on their faces. Styled by Julia von Boehm, Kidman paired her elegant gown with diamond jewelry and black strappy heels. The power couple, who have been married for 16 years, also shared a kiss in front of the red carpet photographers.
The “Wild Hearts” singer flew in from his Las Vegas Residency at Zappos Theatre in Planet Hollywood to be by his wife’s side for the coveted awards show ceremony, which is often referred to as “Hollywood’s Biggest Night.”
Urban and Kidman were also joined by Aussie actor Sam Rechner, who appears in the film, The Fabelmans.
