Kristen Bell is one of my favorite actresses, someone I’ve loved since Veronica Mars. The L.A. premiere of the new movie Couples Retreat was last night (October 5th) and I was very much anxious about what Kristen would wear. Why? Because I’m crazy, duh! But also because sometimes she (and her stylist) make some not so stellar choices and I want her to always look like the belle of the ball.
I’m torn about how I feel about this dress. I like the dress, in general. The accessories and shoes were perfect for it. And yet… the dress choice felt a little weird for the movie. Since this is a beachy, casual, fun date movie…even though the dress had a short hemline, it still felt almost too glamorous. Then again, can you ever be too glam on the red carpet? Lovers of the dress will say that it’s hip but romantic. Haters of the dress will say that it looks like her dress is falling apart and she’s auditioning to be Vanna White. I’m not a lover or a hater right now, just an observer!
Bell was also on the TV shows Heroes, and Party Down (and somewhat ironically, Everwood and Deadwood). I’ve heard that KBell will be returning to Party Down to reprise her role. Now, I don’t want to overload you with too much TV that you must watch, but you MUST watch Party Down. It’s hilarious. Use this time to catch up on season one, so that you can be ready to enjoy season two with me, since I’m very needy.
