Would You Wear A Bell-Shaped Dress Like Kristen Bell's?

07/06/2010 at 03:30 PM ET


While most starlets are still embracing a less-is-more philosophy in skintight minis for the red carpet, Kristen Bell bucked the trend for Chanel’s annual Tribeca Film Festival dinner, dressed in an anything-but-basic black Chanel dress with a bell-shaped skirt. But not everyone wants to stand out from the crowd so much. We have to wonder if the shape of her skirt is too much for most? Or is it a cool retro look that would fit into any fashionista’s wardrobe? Vote in our poll below and then tell us: Would you wear a bell-shaped dress like Kristen’s?

I think she looks cute, especially at a Canel event, Chanel never went with the trends, she stuck to what she knew worked for her, and I think Kristen is embracing that. I love it!

I love this retro look! It makes her waist look teeny tiny! What a way to get people to take a 2nd look! Amazing!

Kristen Bell’s dress is gorgeous! The skirt part of the dress works because the top is fitted. The buttons & sleeves are cute & help pull the dress together. Her shoes are also great, I love the ankle strap. The bracelet & clutch also work well because it is somewhat minimal but the accessories still stand out. I could see many women that would want copy this look the next time they go out on a date. The bell shape gives the dress an edge which is one thing I love about Chanel. Classic, beautiful & sophisticated but not uptight. The dress says, “I am a strong beautiful woman and I love life!” I like it & I would wear it. Definitely my style.
