Nicole Kidman, Madonna, Fergie and friends light up New York's 'Nine' premiere

"Nine" cast

Nicole Kidman, Daniel Day-Lewis, Penelope Cruz, Kate Hudson, Marion Cotillard, Fergie and Judi Dench all hit the red carpet Tuesday night for the rollout of "Nine" in New York -- resulting in a virtual fame explosion at the Ziegfeld Theatre.

Now if only some stars would help promote the movie musical.

No film this year has a celeb-packed ensemble like Rob Marshall's new one does -- and nary a lunch, photo call or premiere (including the Dec. 9 event in L.A.) has taken place without obscenely A-list attendance from the "Nine" cast. The arrival photos are below, but even more delicious Tuesday night in New York were ...

... the equally famous pals who showed face to give support, including Madonna with daughter Lourdes and Jessica Seinfeld (minus their mutual bestie Gwyneth Paltrow), Golden Globe nominee Tobey Maguire with wife Jen Meyer, Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, and Kidman's BFF Naomi Watts.

"Nine" has drummed up tons of acclaim, including lots of Golden Globe nods Tuesday morning.

With a cast like this, is anyone surprised?
