Nicole Kidman pokes fun at her bizarre walk for Balenciaga runway show

She may be an Oscar-winning actress, but  isn't afraid to poke fun at herself.

On Tuesday, the Hollywood star made light of her  at the Balenciaga couture show during Paris Fashion Week.

Nicole, 55, took to Instagram to share a fan-made clip by Newman Parker, in which he joked about getting on a flight like The Hours star.

'Boarding a flight but in a Nicole Kidman Balenciaga couture show kind of way,' Newman captioned the comedic video.

The Australian actress was only too happy to laugh at herself, reposting the clip and writing: 'Nailed it. I'm taking tips.'

Nicole made headlines earlier this month when she walked the runway show at Paris Fashion Week in a one-shouldered silver gown with detailing across the midriff.

She finished the look with a set of opera gloves as she strutted down the runway alongside reality star  and supermodel .

However, it was the Stepford Wives star's stilted, robotic walking style that really made headlines on the runway.

Nicole was roasted by fans shortly after the runway walk.

'Why [are] they walking as if they just rose from their graves,' another added, referring to both Kidman and Kardashian.

    Look out of the world in Balenciaga like Nicole

    <div class="fff-inline-image-container fff-orig-product"

    data-main-product-id="">

    Demna Gvasalia presented his second couture show for Balenciaga at Paris Fashion Week, and it's one we won't be forgetting in a hurry thanks to Nicole Kidman wearing this fabulous foil-like frock.

    The mostly all-black show was punctuated by bright ballgowns, but your eye is immediately drawn to Nicole's one-shoulder dress. Not least because of the shiny silver shade but also the couture-worthy ruched silhouette and dramatic train.

    We wouldn't be surprised to see this on the red carpet, but for now you can check it out via the runway video - just click the link.

    If Nicole has inspired you to drop the little black dress for something a little more intergalactic, shop a silver dress from the edit. We've covered all budgets with Nazz Collection, Asos and Dodo Bar Or.

    Several users pointed out the marked difference between the catwalk technique of seasoned model Naomi Campbell versus Kidman, who had never set foot on a runway.

    'That's Nicole Kidman. She's a phenomenal actress and very tall. She does walk like a statue that just came to life [laughing/crying emoji]. The only 'model' in this is Naomi Campbell,' one user said.

    'Now, why would they go and dress Nicole Kidman in a space blanket for a fashion show? Space blanket meets toga party, actually,' one Twitter user quipped.

    'Can't believe Nicole Kidman made foil look good,' another added. 

    However others rushed to Kidman's defence, with one tweeting: 'Everyone talking about Nicole and Kim's walks, like hello, they aren't models like Naomi is'.

    Kidman was joined by the likes of Kim, Naomi, Dua Lipa and Bella Hadid on the star-studded catwalk. 

    Fans poked fun at Kidman's outfit, comparing the metallic frock to an emergency blanket or a sheet of crumpled tin foil

    The Hours star's eyebrow-raising catwalk appearance comes five years after she was ridiculed for her now-infamous 'seal clap' at the Oscars in 2017. 

    Footage from the ceremony went viral after fans noticed her unusual clapping style.

    Kidman's fingers were oddly outstretched as she applauded the winners, with only the heels of her hands appearing to make contact.

    Speaking to The Kyle and Jackie O Show weeks later, the Moulin Rouge! star laughed off the incident and explained why she hadn't wanted her fingers to touch. 

    Kidman said she didn't want to damage the 119 carats' worth of diamonds on her hands, including a 13.58-carat pearl-shaped diamond ring set in platinum.
