Emmy-winning actress Nicole Kidman is known for her glamorous movie star style. On Monday, the actress used her keen sense of fashion to make a bold statement at Glamour's 2017 Women of the Year Awards.

"I'm wearing wings tonight, and I tell you, to all of those young girls and boys sitting up there in that balcony, even if your wings get clipped, you can build them back and you can fly," she said to the audience.

"He gives me so much strength at times, and he gives me so much love," she said. "I'm very very fortunate and I know so many people in this room don't have that, but I have it, and I want to acknowledge it."

"Let's offer our support and let's create change, because it's about building bridges," Kidman said when speaking about survivors of sexual assault. "Bridges bring understanding, they bring empathy, but they bring change, and that's what we need, we need change."
