The star was striking in a caped gown on Monday at the Costume Institute.

Nicole Kidman stepped out Monday in Alexander McQueen for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Met Gala in New York, which celebrates the newest exhibit at the Costume Institute, "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology." The exhibit juxtaposes the manual aspects of haute couture against modern machinery in fashion design.

The actress was elegant as she showed off her embellished cape, which featured shimmering beaded moons and stars. Kidman took the look to the next level with an ethereal crown, Fred Leighton jewels and braided updo. 

The star arrived on the arm of husband Keith Urban, who just completed his role as a judge on American Idol's final season.
