What have they done to Nicole Kidman?

SOMETHING'S JUST OFF: Nicole Kidman for Jimmy Choo.

Nicole Kidman looks fit, gorgeous and fabulous at 46. There's no denying it (although there is a debate to be had about how much professional help she's had in looking so, well, youthful). 

Nearing 50, Kidman continues to wow on the red carpet - girlfriend can rock a designer gown like no one else - and being such a fashion icon has landed her high profile and lucrative campaigns like that of luxury accessories label Jimmy Choo.

She's been the face of their shoes and bags since July last year and, for some reason, the latest ads, shot by Will Vanderperre, seem to have completely stripped Nicole of all her Kidman-ness.

TRUE STAR: Nicole looking equally beautiful and entirely more herself on the Cannes red carpet last year.

She's almost unrecognisable - so why not just hire a 20-something model?

Seeing the ad for the first time was a disorienting experience. We knew we knew the famous face but we just couldn't place it. Was it a Sienna Miller-Charlize Theron hybrid, or maybe it was famously-leggy Brit model Agyness Deyn rocking longer hair? 

But no, it's 'The Railway Man' star Nicole Kidman with what appears to be an over zealous dose of Photoshop. We've never seen nostrils so perfectly round and, well, elegantly porcine; legs so fashion-illustration-like; cheeks and lips so full; eyes so hooded and skin so smooth.

TWINSIES? The campaign image looks more like former model Charlize Theron than it does Aussie actress Kidman.

(We do like those boots though).

What do you think? Just a case of the angle or have they gone too far on the Photoshop front here?

Here's some - albeit blurry and smoky - live action Kidman from the same campaign ...
