Kristen Bell hit the red carpet at the 2012 CMT Music Awards, held in Nashville on Wednesday evening, before heading inside to co-host the awards.

The actress looked gorgeous in a shimmering gold Reem Acra Spring 2012 gown with sequin embellishments.

Although Kristen stands at just 5’1”, this elegant dress elongates her frame, making her seem just as statuesque as the runway model.

Kristen certainly has the right look in mind for this particular awards show, as this dress easily could have been stolen from Taylor Swift’s wardrobe.

Graziela A Rose World earrings, smoky eyes, a bright pink pout, a gold Judith Leiber ‘Phillips’ ribbed crystal clutch and a faux wavy bob complete the look.
