At Tuesday's red carpet premiere for Nine in Manhattan, Nicole Kidman debuted a questionable new makeup trend: a mess of white powder dotting her eyes and nose!

Looks like Kidman and her makeup artist for the night needed to do a last-minute spot check before the usually-flawless star faced the cameras. Often scrutinized for her supposed use of Botox, Kidman, 42, turned heads at November's Country Music Awards with "freakish" looking lips, a witness told the New York Post. "She just had her lips done, and now she looks like Meg Ryan."

Co-starring Kate Hudson, Fergie, Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard and Daniel Day-Lewis, the musical Nine (based on a Broadway show and a 1963 Italian film) hits theaters Christmas Day.
