Even style icons like Nicole Kidman have made mistakes in their early red carpet runs. Check out this shot of Nicole as Tom Cruise's arm candy in 1991 at the 63rd Annual Academy Awards.

A short black velvet mini-dress with minimal makeup, wild ringlet hair and tiny drop earrings? Very un-Oscar. Remember, this was back when proper Oscar attire meant a ballgown, not a short cocktail dress. 

Still, even inappropriately dressed, Nic looks lovely. And just three years later, check out her very trendy Golden Globes  outfit.
