Since giving birth to daughter Sunday Rose last year, Nicole Kidman has remained largely out of the spotlight.
The actress was back with a bang this week though, showcasing a brand new 'do as she arrived on the arm of husband Keith Urban at the BMI Country Music Awards.
The formerly blonde actress has brought back her natural auburn tint, and shaped her locks into a curly bob.
Perhaps she is practising the shorter hair look in preparation for her new film role. The Australia actress is due to play a male transsexual in The Danish Girl with Gwyneth Paltrow.
Also wowing at Tuesday's awards bash was rising star Taylor Swift, who took home the song of the year gong for Love Story.
