Kristen Bell In Zuhair Murad - 2013 CMT Music Awards

The 2013 CMT Music Awards held at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee on Wednesday evening marked the first red carpet appearance for Kristen Bell since giving birth to her daughter Lincoln in March.

The actress was keen to show off her post-baby body, wearing a Zuhair Murad Pre-Fall 2013 sleeveless black leather embroidered dress which nipped in her waist – rounding out a trio of Lebanese designers selected by the attendees at this event.

While this is a great “look how I got my figure back” dress, I would’ve loved to have seen more colour from the usually pretty-pastel-frock-wearing starlet.

More inspiring shoes other than the Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ pumps she selected could’ve saved the look.
