Nicole Kidman is fronting Jimmy Choo's new campaign.

The award-winning actress has been chosen to star in the shoe brand's glamorous autumn/winter 2013-14 campaign, set to premiere in August.

The 45-year-old star commented: ''I've always loved fashion and often use it as a way to get into character. There is a lot of complexity, mystery and femininity to the Jimmy Choo woman.''

The print adverts were shot last month by Mikael Jansson and are said to have a ''cinematic feel''.

The 'Stoker' actress was chosen by the company's new creative director, Sandra Choi, as part of her recent bid to shake things up and appeal to an edgier kind of client with ''attitude''.

Sandra said: ''I'm such a great admirer and feel enormously honoured to be working with Nicole Kidman. Nicole is one of the finest actresses in the world, who I knew could convey the empowered glamour of the brand.

''But she is also so nuanced and refined; she brings an attitude of defiance, strength, sensuality and elegance.''

Nicole is no stranger to fronting high profile brands and has memorably starred in ads for Chanel No.5 perfume and Omega watches.
