Check out some of the lovely ladies of Nine — Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard, Penelope Cruz and Kate Hudson — on the cover of Vogue. Vogue also has Annie Leibovitz’s shot on the set — also with Judi Dench, Fergie and Sophia Loren. The film, directed by Chicago’s Rob Marshall, also stars Daniel Day-Lewis as a famous film director dealing with all these various women in his life. The film is based on the 1982 Broadway musical that was loosely based on Fellini’s 8 ½. Cotillard tells Vogue: “It’s been my dream to do an American musical. When I was a child, Annie was my favorite. I just never thought I would get to do it.” Hudson also sounds especially up for the challenge: “I spent most of my childhood singing and dancing and just never had the chance to do it professionally. So when I got the chance to work with Rob, I was so excited, I was out of my mind.” And Cruz reveals she and Hudson had some four-hour dinners living in the same apartment building during the shoot: “We are exercising so much we don’t feel guilty at all.”
If you think they look good here, just wait for the film – Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood tells Vogue that she made 350 costumes for the principals. As EW reported this week, Nine will now open in December. Think it will be worth the wait? Which of these actresses will steal the show?
