Fashion Flashback: Kristen Bell’s Best Red Carpet Moments for Her 41st Birthday!


When it comes to celebrity A-listers & flawless style, Kristen Bell has been quietly—or not so much—dominating the red carpet for major awards shows, film premieres, press junkets, promotional appearances, & more! While the Frozen star is always a pleasure to watch entertain us in movies & on the small screen, the busy mom of two, podcast host, & children’s book author does it all, making it look easy & fashionable! Additionally, The Good Place actress celebrates her 41st birthday today & her feminine, timeless, sometimes bold, & quirky style is worth celebrating as well!

Take a look at the gallery below of some of her most memorable and breathtaking gowns and special occasion looks:

Next, Kristen also kills it when in a midi or mini dress, knowing when to keep it playful, cocktail, or letting her style-setter side show, as seen below:

Also, some stars are photographed hustling about, between events or just, in general, on the go, which makes for perfect style blogging fodder when they do it in stylish outerwear. Kristen is no exception.

Last but not least, Kristen is a masterful fashionista when it comes to outfits, blending mom-chic look with trendy pieces. She really can wear anything from neon to leather to to prints & knits to knee boots to oversize sweaters. 

What do you think of Kristen‘s red carpet style? Which gown is your favorite of hers? What opinions do you have about her outerwear or outfits? What is your favorite film or TV show that she has appeared it?

06/28/2022 Darling of the Day: Kristen Bell’s Neon Cropped Blazer & PVC Heels!


Neon is always the best way to go for summer, even when coordinating a professional ensemble. Additionally, monochrome neon makes a bold statement that not only turns heads, but inspires us to expand our work wardrobes & experiment in unexpected ways. For example, Kristen Bell knows all about neon, continuing her recent style reign while balancing the monikers: The Good Place star, We Are Supported By… podcast host, supermom, & now author of the children’s book The World Needs More Purple Schools. Recently, while promoting the book, Kristen was spotted in New York City in this neon cropped blazer & coordinating high-waist trousers, along with PVC sandals, round sunglasses, a Anine Bing handbag (shop here), & gold earrings.

While the cropped blazer bit may not be the go-to look for every professional Style Darling, it definitely inspires a new way to think not only about blazers, but also about the blouse that could pair underneath it. In an effort to recreate Kristen’s look, check out the below suggestions:

SHOP: 1. cropped suiting blazer in neon green @We Wore What (available in sizes XS-XL, sale: $59.25), 2. Silver Treasures 14K gold round hoop earrings in onyx @JCPenney (sale: $33.00), 3. retro round sunglasses in black @Sunglasses To Go ($11.95), 4. high rise pleated suiting pant in neon green @We Wore What (available in sizes 00-14, $79.00), 5. A New Day small satchel handbag in black @Target ($35.00), & 6. Wild Pair Zandria clear vinyl dress sandals @Macy’s (sale: $41.70).

Since the suiting pair had limited size availability, I expanded my search to include my plus-size readers who are interested & eager to jump on board the neon & green, finding some affordable, stylish options below:

SHOP: high low peplum blazer in neon lime @Rainbow (sale: $11.99), tabbed sleeve blazer in lime @Rainbow ($24.97), tabbed sleeve blazer in Kelly green @Rainbow ($24.97), & high-waisted flare pants in Kelly green @Rainbow (sale: $7.79).

What do you think of Kristen’s street style? Would you wear head-to-toe neon or a cropped blazer? What’s your favorite style blazer? Which celebrity’s style do you love to follow?
