Kristen Bell In Dsquared² – ‘The Judge’ LA Premiere

Kristen Bell In  Dsquared² - 'The Judge' LA Premiere

Kristen Bell attended the LA premiere of ‘The Judge’ held at AMPAS Samuel Goldwyn Theater on Wednesday (October 1) in Beverly Hills, California.

Unlike fellow mum-to-be Zoe Saldana, who covered her bump, Kristen opted to showcase her bump wearing a form-fitting Dsquared² black halter dress.

The streamline look couldn’t be a more beautiful display of her body and her style. Keeping the look tonal, she styled her frock with a Ferragamo clutch and Brian Atwood sandals.

Picking a best-dressed maternity star this year is going to be tough. I love that they are all winning the challenge of dressing for the red carpet when their bodies are constantly changing.

Kristen Bell In Elizabeth and James – ‘This Is Where I Leave You’ LA Premiere

Kristen Bell In Elizabeth and James - 'This Is Where I Leave You' LA Premiere

Kristen Bell attended the ‘This Is Where I Leave You’ LA premiere held at TCL Chinese Theatre on Monday (September 15) in Hollywood, California.

Her Elizabeth and James frock couldn’t be a more flattering look for the pregnant star.

Cut in flowing, asymmetrical layers of floral-print silk chiffon, I’m instantly swept away by the dreamy aesthetic of this ethereal dress which is modernized by a dusting of studs and a monochrome palette.

Amped up with a pair of shimmering Christian Louboutin gold and silver strappy sandals, the look was completed with wavy tresses and a silver Louboutin clutch.

Does this maternity look work for you or would you prefer a look which shows off the bump?

Kristen Bell In Etro – ‘The Judge’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Kristen Bell In Etro - 'The Judge' Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Kristen Bell attended the premiere of the film ‘The Judge’ at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada last night (September 4).

The pregnant star wore a floral print jumpsuit from the Etro Spring 2014 collection, along with metallic strapped pumps.

Kristen was smart to leave accessories out of the equation entirely, since the fringed criss-cross neckline and mixed print details of this jumpsuit are plenty of look all on their own.

The actress looks happy and healthy, which is lovely, however, I can’t help but feel this wasn’t the best choice for maternity wear, since the burgeoning bump just adds one more element to an already busy look, and it just reads as a bit much.

Messy waves, beautifully glowing skin and a pinky nude lip complete the look.

Kristen Bell In Andrew Gn – Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Grants Banquet

Kristen Bell In Andrew Gn - Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Grants Banquet

Kristen Bell was back on the red carpet for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Grants Banquet held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Thursday (August 14) in Beverly Hills, California.

The pregnant star was looking very glamorous in her Andrew Gn Fall 2014 sleeveless gown featuring a blue fringe-beaded bodice and flowing black chiffon layered skirt.

Ensuring her show-stopping entrance with demure and sedate elegance, she styled her look with screen-siren waves and diamond-cluster earrings.

Kristen Bell In Monique Lhuillier – ‘Life Is Amazing’ Lexus Short Films Series

Kristen Bell In Monique Lhuillier - 'Life Is Amazing' Lexus Short Films Series

Kristen Bell attended the 2nd annual ‘Life Is Amazing’ Lexus Short Films Series presented by The Weinstein Company and Lexus held at LA Live on Wednesday (July 30) in Los Angeles, California.

The actress wore a Monique Lhuillier Resort 2015 navy dress with a nude panel featuring a gathered detail at the back.

Nude Louboutin pumps and an Edie Parker ‘Jean’ black and nude pearl stripe clutch accessorized her look.

I love the unique design which allows her to cover her baby-bump without any fuss, plus I like the styling.

I’m not sure this will go down well with the majority, but I think she, who has been below par recently, manages to pull it off.

Kristen Bell In Alberta Ferretti – Women In Film 2014 Crystal + Lucy Awards

Kristen Bell In Alberta Ferretti - Women In Film 2014 Crystal + Lucy Awards

Kristen Bell took to the red carpet for the Women In Film 2014 Crystal + Lucy Awards held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza on Wednesday (June 11) in Los Angeles, California alongside Cate Blanchett and Kerry Washington.

Once again I found myself disappointed by Kristen’s look.

After wearing five almost identical black gowns to host the CMT Music Awards last week, here she is opting for the colour once again, this time donning a strapless structured frock from Alberta Ferretti’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection.

First off, the dress is over complicated; secondly, it is doing nothing for her; and black, again, so soon?

What happened to the girl who used to don pretty summery hues all year around?

This all-black all-of-the-time style à la Victoria Beckham and Jennifer Aniston doesn’t suit her. Considering Nicole Chavez is her stylist, who also looks after Rachel ‘Colour Consistent’ Bilson, this blackout comes as even more of a surprise.

Let’s hope there is some colour on the horizon for her next red carpet outing.
