Fashion Flashback: Kristen Bell Muses on Top Looks

Fashion Flashback: Kristen Bell Muses on Top Looks

When it comes to style, “The Good Place” star and this year’s inaugural SAG Awards host Kristen Bell is definitely drawn to the “girly.” “But when I see the pictures I feel like I’m dressed up to go to my own christening, so I have to be careful how many ruffles I wear.” The “Frozen” star — who’s walked many a red carpet — believes the older she gets, the simpler she dresses. She now often opts for black and white — “modern looks which make me feel more sophisticated.”

2005
I barely knew any designers other than Mr. TJ Maxx,” says Bell of her first SAG Awards experience. “I wasn’t thinking too much about my look because I was so excited to be there, as this was my first awards show.” She believes her style has drastically evolved since. “Also I don’t ever remember wearing a wig but this picture could convince me otherwise!

2010
Bell served as a presenter her first year at the Golden Globes. “I had always loved girly pinks and frills but this look was the start of me trying to dress more like an adult,” she says. “And I felt very elegant, like I was at the big kids’ table for the first time.”

2013
I was seven months’ pregnant and terrified about the limitations I had fitting into a dress,” recalls Bell of her next Globes year. “My stylist, Nicole Chavez, called around town asking people if they had any empire-waist dresses they could spare. … Thankfully, Jessica Paster pulled this dress from Emily Blunt’s options and it fit perfectly!Bell felt gorgeous — something “somewhat hard to achieve” in her state. “If it hadn’t been for their generosity I probably would have shown up in maternity jeans.”

2014
The year “Frozen” went to the Oscars — and scored two wins -— Bell picked a dress in keeping with theme. “I truly did feel like a princess,” she says, noting she was especially into the Piaget diamond necklace. The whole night felt surreal: “My husband [Dax Shepard] and I did a lot of people watching and giggled the whole way through, wondering how on earth we were allowed in.

2016
Bell’s all-time favorite look is from this Emmy year. “I was able to find a dress that was floral and girly but still came across simple and didn’t swallow me up,” she says of the Zuhair Murad gown. “I loved the pattern of the floral and the huge train on the skirt. And shockingly, it was very comfortable.”

2017
This look was far bolder and sexier than anything I had ever worn, but I was really feeling it,” she says of her Jenny Packham Globes dress. “It was the first thing we tried, and even though we tried about 15 more dresses, we couldn’t get past the fit and class of this one. I love a deep plunging neckline and the whole look made me feel very ‘Old Hollywood.”

Kristen Bell hosts the 24th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards

Kristen Bell hosts the 24th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards

On January 21, Kristen  had the distinct honor of being the first-ever host of  the 24th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles, CA.

The ceremony began, as it always does, with the traditional “I’m an actor” montage, only this year it only included women, including Mom‘s Allison Janney, black-ish‘s Tracee Ellis Ross and Stranger Things‘ Millie Bobby Brown. The camera then cut to Bell on stage, who finished things off.

When I was young, I used to record Disney movies onto my cassette player,” she said. “I would sing every lyric in the Disney canon knowing and believing that one day I would be a part of that magic. I am Kristen Bell, and I am a narcissist. Sorry, I am an actor — and tonight, I’m also your host.

Bell then made her way to centerstage, making note of the fact that she was not only the ceremony’s first-ever host, but its “first lady” host.

I honestly never thought that I’d grow up to be First Lady, but I kind of like it. I think my first initiative as first lady will be cyber bullying, because I have yet to see any progress on that problem quite yet,” she said.

She did not mention Melania Trump by name, but it was a clear dig at the first lady, who said that combating cyberbullying would be her key focus during her time in the White House.

Bell quickly pointed to “Veep” actor Tony Hale, who was sitting in the audience, and said, “I’m looking at you, Tony Hale. You’re a bully. You guys, he’s savage on Twitter. I’m serious.

She also addressed the women’s marches that took place over the weekend:
We are living in a watershed moment and as we march forward with active momentum and open ears, let’s make sure we are leading the charge with empathy and diligence,” Bell said. “Because fear and anger never win the race.
Kristen’s other zingers:

* “I am thrilled to see the cast of GLOWGLOW, for those of you unfamiliar, is about a tour de force, powerful, strong, thoughtful ladies who get roped into doing Marc Maron’s podcast.”

* “Elisabeth Moss is here from the documentary The Handmaid’s Tale!

* “The cast from Get Out is here, you guys, serving as a walking reminder that if you say ‘yes’ to the Tea Party, you are immediately on your way to the sunken place. It is just a fact.”

She then closed on a more heartfelt note:

It’s a true privilege to experience and share the wide scope of humanity through storytelling. The skating queen, the grieving mother, the lady bird, even the sea monster… everyone’s story deserves to be told, especially now,” she said. “We are living in a watershed moment, and as we march forward with active momentum and open ears, let’s make sure we’re leading the charge with empathy and diligence, because fear and anger never win the race. And most importantly, regardless of our differences, I think we can all come together and delight in one thing: Frozen 2 is coming out in theaters in 2019, you guys. I’m really excited.

For the red carpet, Kristen wore a J Mendel Resort 2018 fuchsia floral embroidered drop-waist tulle gown with Charlotte Olympia heels, a Judith Leiber clutch and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

Kristen opened the ceremony wearing a custom Reem Acra beaded deep-v gown. Later in the show, she wore another Reem Acra gown; a black long-sleeved intricately beaded gown with sheer sleeves.

For the press room, Bell wore a YANINA Couture plunging black tulle gown and beaded belt.​ (fashion credits to thefashioncourt )
