Kristen Bell In Jenny Packham – 2013 Golden Globe Awards

Kristen Bell in Jenny Packham - 2013 Golden Globe Awards

Glowing expectant mother Kristen Bell looked radiant on the red carpet at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, on Sunday held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California.

Kristen flattered her lovely baby bump in an ethereal Jenny Packham Spring 2013 gown.

To highlight the subtle almost-lavender hue of her gauzy gown, as well as the breathtaking beading on the gown’s bodice, Kristen rocked a shimmering silver clutch and sweetly feminine braid-adorned ponytail.

I think that Kristen is taking maternity chic to a whole new level with this look.

Not only does the colour and material of the dress suit her perfectly, but it highlights her new shape without making maternity the focal point.

I’m sure the Duchess will be delighted to know that her favourite designer Jenny Packham does maternity gowns.

    The fact is i liked it way better after i read she was pregnant. Because otherwise id have said a spark was missing. Either in her face or some freshness coula have been added in by pulling her hair back. But after reading she’s pregnant the softer side does register with me. It is an awesome gown. Would’ve liked to see this on Nicole Kidman.

    I am so blown away right now, she looks impecable and just so beautiful. The dress is stunning and perfectly flattering! I had no idea that she and Dax were pregnant, man does she make pregnancy look amazing!

    Bravo to her. Lovely color, great makeup, and gorgeous beading.

    Beautiful except for the no neck effect.

    Bad thing ever

    she looks beautiful but the high neck looks as if it’s gagging her. otherwise it’s a lovely color and the styling is impeccable.

    While I agree that the high neckline and structured shoulders combination is not the best, I still find myself drawn to this look.

    Kristen is glowing.

    LOVE this! What an amazing maternity gown and she styled it perfectly. She is glowing, just amazing. Definitely one of my favourites of the night. A lot of pregnant actresses should take notes from her.

    It’s a gorgeous dress and she’s gorgeous too but it really is “stumpifying” her neck. You need a swan neck to pull off this neckline.

    I think the top is very unflattering. She looks hunched over.

  11. Dhppy January 14, 2013 at 04:54 #

    I thought the shoulder details may be too overwhelming for such a small frame, but then it balances out the pregnancy expertly.

    This is GORGEOUS. Another one of my favorites; definitely in the top 10. I love how flattering it is to her baby bump :). The neckline is a tiny bit stumpfying to her neck (lol) but other than that I have nary a criticism for this demure yet totally fashionable look.

      +1 Love it 🙂

    The neck is a little high and the shoulder pads a little big, by she looks radiant.

  14. Amber January 14, 2013 at 03:12 #

    Her necks disappears a bit but still really gorgeous look overall.

  15. mia January 14, 2013 at 03:09 #

    The dress itself is absolutely GORGEOUS… however on kristen… not so much. She is very petite and small, and therefore the shoulders look big or wide for her petite frame.. causing her neck to look a lot shorter, and diminishing her upper area. She looks hunched.. and overwhelmed by the gown on the face/shoulder area because of this.

    a little bit of a fail in my books – and it’s a shame.. because the gown is divine as a maternity gown, it just fails to look good on her.

    I love this! She’s best dressed for me so far, stunning.

  17. Niki January 14, 2013 at 03:02 #

    The dress is lovely and she looks beautiful, but I don’t know if it is just me but… between the shoulder pads and the raised neckline, doesn’t it make it look a little like she has no neck? Everything else is stunning though!

    • Marybeth January 14, 2013 at 03:14 #

      Yes! This high-neck and structured-shoulder combination is the same thing that I disliked about Michelle Dockery’s otherwise lovely gold and cream dress tonight. It visually scrunches the head downward, as if one is neckless or stiffly shrugging the shoulders.

      But I also agree with you that everything else is gorgeous.

        I was going to say the exact same thing!

    • TeaAtTwo January 14, 2013 at 04:16 #

      Yes- that’s my niggle with this look but everything else I love here and might be one of my favourites of the night.

    • dee January 14, 2013 at 13:35 #

      I agree.

    Wow, this one amazing maternity gown. She looks cute!
