Girl, That’s Not Your Dress: Kristen Bell

Posted on August 21, 2012

Everthing about this is so very wrong.

Kristen Bell makes an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” in a Cushnie et Ochs dress paired with Casadei shoes.

Kristen’s been around the fame block for a decade now, so this really puzzles us. How can she not know that this dress is a terrible choice for a sit-down? Scratch that: it’s a HORRIBLE choice.

Honey, you’re showing belly rolls and underboob on national television. And yes, belly rolls are absolutely normal and there’s nothing wrong with them at all, nor are we implying that she’s anything but fit and thin. But still, girl. We can’t imagine that was the effect you were going for. We can’t imagine you did anything but cringe when you saw the footage. You look deathly uncomfortable (the patented arm-across-the-stomach pose; if there’d been a throwpillow on that chair, she’d have put it in her lap the second she sat down), so why on earth did you pick this dress? Or did you pick it without trying it on?

Then there’s the matchy-but-not-quite shoes which look totally bridesmaid.

We do think this is a pretty sharp dress, but it’s for standing and posing, not for sitting down. And that shape is just not the right shape for her. Great color, though.

Pack this one up and send it off to some teen starlet who only wants to pose on a step-and-repeat, dear.
