Caught! Nicole Kidman Gets Back on Her High Horse

Nicole Kidman, possibly very elegant, possibly very posh (to maybe a fashion victim on crack) was spotted dining at one of her fave L.A. haunts, the Polo Lounge, over the weekend.
The onetime Oscar winner had everyone in the restaurant staring at her...but it wasn't for what you think.
"First of all, her face looked great," says a surprised witness nearby. "She wasn't wearing much makeup, and it looked really natural and glowing."
Adds our lunch lurker:
"The reason why I couldn't stop looking at her was because I thought she rode her horse to the hotel."
"She was wearing riding boots, leggings and a navy blue sweater vest with a polo shirt underneath," describes our fashion-conscious source. "She also wore a newsboy cap with her hair tucked up underneath. I thought she was a male server at first."
So is the equestrian look in fashion now or something?
"The boots sound fine, but the rest of the outfit sounds like an over-the-top no-no," says fashion expert Sydne Summer over at mystyle, fresh from New York Fashion Week. "A bunch of designers showed equestrian looks for this spring, but nothing too crazy. The shows were quite literal, but again it was haute couture."
More Nic dirt:
"She looked really thin, too," adds our insider at the Beverly Hills Hotel. "She was just drinking what looked like tea."
No surprise there. This is Beverly Hills, darlings. But is life with randy Keith Urban getting a little, how shall we say, trying for Ms. K? So much so that the gal's acting out by wearing loco fashions? Hmmm. Let's keep an eye on this one.
Apparently Ted got some hate mail, and responded:
Clooney and Kidman Raise Eyebrows—Separately!

We uncorked an 80-proof scoop Sunday and the party's on!
Too much fun at the Oscars Sunday when we exclusively revealed that silver studmuffin George Clooney likes to get his Academy Awards courage up by downing a few! Love that Gawker, a site we admire for being so painstakingly prickly about celeb behavior and media reportage, further drank of the intoxicating story with fabulous footage; watch it!
We also mention the story again because one of other Oscar-weekend wonders, the the preposterously overdressed Nicole Kidman, apparently got called into question by several readers who noticed Nic flew to Australia this past weekend, so we must have been making the whole thing up, right?
Wrong. Kidman lunched at the Polo Lounge on Friday before she departed. Nice try, crank-a-thons!
Just thought we'd recelebrate Ms. K's kooky couture and Mr. C.'s rebel-tastic ways with another item here, plus put in a word for our goss accuracy, which folks live to question. Whatever. People have to get off somehow, right?
Hate-gasms sure seem to be the choice lately.
