Perfect pins: Nicole Kidman's stunning rose-pink gown slips as she leaves the Cannes premiere for new film Paperboy in Cannes earlier tonight
Getting into a car while wearing a flowing grown with a unpredictable thigh high slit proved a little too tricky for Nicole Kidman to manage in Cannes earlier tonight.
But her wardrobe difficulty only served to give onlookers a glimpse of the actress's perfect pins.
She struggled in vain to keep the gown over her long and toned legs, but eventually needed an aide to help her into the car.
At one point, the actress's gold high-heeled sandals got caught up in her frock, which added to her struggle.
The French seaside city has certainly brought out the romantic side between happily married Kidman and her husband Keith Urban.
The country music star came out to support his Hollywood actress wife for the premiere of her new movie, The Paperboy.

Proud Keith embraced the 44-year-old actress several times, showering her with kisses and cuddles.
The doting singer even carried his wife's clutch bag as they shared their amorous public display of affection.
Earlier Keith let his wife have her time in the spotlight as she walked the red-carpet.
The actress dazzled the crowd as she arrived in a rose-coloured draped Lavin dress that cutaway to reveal her toned upper body.

She posed for the cameras and headed up the press line with her much younger co-star Zac Efron.
Efron, 24, looked decidedly dapper in a tuxedo as did fellow stars John Cusack and Matthew McConaughey.
The Paperboy is set in the 1960s, with Efron playing an aspiring writer helping his journalist brother (McConaughey) investigate a possible miscarriage of justice.
