Nicole Kidman is known for taking fashion risks on the red carpet, but sometimes her style choices are more confusing than chic.

Such was the case at the 2011 CMT Music Awards in Nashville, TN on Wednesday night. The 43-year-old actress donned a Proenza Schouler number, which featured a blue and green-striped short-sleeve top with unflattering brown zig-zag detail along the waist and a sheer, asymmetrical hemline. Kidman paired the dress with strappy lilac Pierre Hardy sandals.

The Australian actress, who was at the Bridgestone Arena to support her country singer husband Keith Urban, 43, had some sartorial hits during this past awards season, most notably the black lace short-sleeve Nina Ricci design she wore to the SAGs and a stunning strapless Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture gown at the Grammys.
