Kristen Bell at “The Hangover II” Premiere

These two ultra creamy and pastel colors didn’t work for me on the runway. I couldn’t place what was off until I saw Bell’s reinvention of the look. It’s the shoes. The bold red contrasts the pastels. It’s too strong and over compensates for the simple colors. It throws off the balance. Bell wore it with simple nude Brian Atwoods which brings out the colors in the dress in a much more thorough way. She has such similar coloring to the model on the runway. The runway shows the bold red lips and tries to tie them in with the shoes, yet it works much better the way Bell tries it — just the lipstick on its own.
