Love It or Hate It? The Kristen Bell CMT Awards Look You Didn’t See
Not all of Kristen Bell’s looks made it to the stage at the CMT Awards. What do you think of this previously unseen one?
Host Kristen Bell wowed us on the red carpet at Wednesday’s CMT Awards in her glittering gold Reem Acra confection, but that wasn’t the only look she donned over the course of the night. With more outfit changes than Nashville has honky-tonk bars, she kept the designer looks coming straight through the show. Between the stunning one-shoulder Collette Dinnigan gown and her sparkly Monique Lhuillier halter, we’re not sure which one we liked best!
Not all of Kristen’s looks made it to the stage, however. People snapped the above shot of the actress backstage doing a fashion parade of all her award show looks, giving us a sneak peek at some of the looks that got axed. Here, she’s wearing black pants, matching shoes, and a black-and-gold beaded jacket with one heck of a plunging neckline by Jenny Packham. What do you think?
To be honest, while I love Kristen, I’m not so sure I’m loving this look. Kristen is a tiny little lady (as am I—in fact, at 5’1”, we’re the same height), so I sympathize with the plight of the short gal—and unfortunately, this outfit makes her look a little stunted. I think it’s the pants; maybe if the jacket were actually a gold-spangled mini dress, it would have worked better. It’s possible that it’s just the camera angle that’s making her look a little on the short side, but either way, I’m kind of glad this ensemble never made it to the stage!
But maybe that’s just me. What do you think, Bettys? Love Kristen’s unseen look? Hate it? Feel kind of “meh” about it? Tell us in the comments!
