Louis Vuitton event certainly looked like quite the intellectual as he posed with his striking new haircut in a suit, opened necked-shirt and leather shoes.
But the 41-year-old did not seem so proud of his look earlier in the day, when he was spotted wandering around the Big Apple with a woollen hat covering his chrome dome.

The 50-year-old made the quip when chat show host Graham Norton showed a snap of her sharing a kiss with the beefcake at the Emmys, as her cuckolded spouse Keith Urban watched on.

As the audience erupted into laughter at what many perceived as a dig at Skarsgard’s kissing skills, Kidman realised that she was potentially making it worse. ‘I mean not a mannequin! I’m done.’
