Nicole Kidman shared some details behind her gorgeous gown at the 2022 Oscars.

Kidman, 54, was nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role at the Academy Awards for her performance in "Being the Ricardos." She looked stunning in her custom Giorgio Armani Privé light blue silk faille strapless gown at the event.

The "Big Little Lies" star said the designer created a new shade for the dress because she told them she wanted to wear blue on the red carpet.

"They dyed it," she told E! News. "I was like, 'I really want to wear blue.' So this was the color. They made this color," which the outlet dubbed "Nicole Kidman blue."

Kidman was joined by her husband, Keith Urban, on the red carpet. The couple held hands in front of the cameras.

"I'm just so happy to be here," Kidman said, noting that she was particularly excited to be at the awards ceremony with her country singer husband, "who was playing Vegas last night and flew in and landed at 1:00 a.m. Whatever it takes."

Keith also gushed over his wife. The "Blue Ain't Your Color" singer said he was "incredibly proud" of Kidman. "And I think 'Being the Ricardos' is extraordinary," he added.

"Being the Ricardos" is a biographical drama based on a true-life story. It chronicles the life of iconic comedian Lucille Ball and her turbulent personal and professional relationship with husband Desi Arnaz (Javier Bardem) over a production week on the set of their hit sitcom, "I Love Lucy."

"I think it's just, at this stage in my career, to be given chances that push you out of your comfort zone and then people see you as something different to what you've already done, is always just a blessing," Kidman said.

The "Undoing" actress added that she was very grateful to director Aaron Sorkin, who "took a massive gamble on me, and I just wanted to deliver for him." She also acknowledged everyone's efforts in making the movie.

"The cast that we had, this is so much about us as a cast," Kidman continued. "Only three of us are nominated tonight, but this is actually about our cast and our crew, which is partly the reason we're here, because all of the work that we do is only possible because of the people behind the scenes. So we're here to honor them as well."

In a previous interview with The New York Times, Kidman addressed the reports about her replacing Cate Blanchett in the lead role. Blanchett had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts. The "Eyes Wide Shut" star shared her industry motto after being chosen to replace her fellow Australian actress.

"I feel like there's a sacred pact among us all — whoever gets something, that's where it was meant to land," said Kidman.
