Only two months after welcoming baby Lincoln, House of Lies star Kristen Bell ditched the mom jeans (not that we can really picture the actress wearing those) to host the 2013 CMT Music Awards in — count ’em — four different looks.

All of which happened to showcase her enviable post-baby bod.

For her red carpet appearance, she chose a black leather Zuhair Murad cocktail dress with a conservative neckline and an embroidered A-line skirt that showed off her legs.


From there, she took to the stage, where she went for a more country-glam vibe in a sparkly bronze Monique Lhuillier mini covered in lace and sequins.

Next, the hot mama flaunted some serious décolletage in a black Cushnie Et Ochs column gown with a sexy T-strap neckline.

And to close out the show, Bell let down her hair and slipped into another black number by Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti with a gem-encrusted metallic bodice.

But the actress seemed less inclined to discuss her dresses and more into talking about her accessories. Well, two accessories in particular: her shoes and a breast pump kit.

After sharing a snap of her “treacherous” sky-high heels, explaining that co-host Jason Aldean would catch her if she fell (which luckily, didn’t happen!), she Tweeted the following:

“My new backstage beauty routine #pumpit #pumppumpitup #CMTAwards,” she Tweeted, along with a photo of her pump kit.

Tell us: Which one of Kristen Bell’s four dresses is your favorite?

Love the first look on her! The waist hits at the perfect spot and looks so flattering.

Definitely the long dress! It is very flattering. I am sure she is a tiny person in real life, but the pictures make her legs look chunky.

The third one … very glam.

Kitchy on

I actually don’t think any suit her. They’re all pretty, but they don’t look like they were altered right, and the actual style isn’t flattering on her. Which is something I never thought I’d say, since normally you could put Kristen Bell in a potato sack and I’d say she looked gorgeous.

Dolzina on

The real question should be Why is she hosting the CMT’s?

Ella on

The first one looks good. The others are ok but ill fitting on her. He legs look pretty hefty too.

Kristen would look good in a brown paper bag, but I like the first and the long one–sorry couldn’t choose one.

My fav dress was the second one. Even though I’m not big on yellow gold. That was the best one!

She looks amazing! I wish I looked that great two months after my baby.

I like the first one!
