Nicole recently enjoyed a shining moment at the 2013 Grammy Awards when she served as hubby Keith Urban‘s arm candy on the red carpet, but for the Oscar Awards (at which she served as one of the presenters) the Australian beauty stepped up her game and rocked a slinky black and gold gown by designer L’Wren Scott.
