Everyone will want to build a snowman with Kristen Bell after this! The Frozen star ditches all of her clothes and goes completely naked in the May 2014 issue of Allure magazine for its long-awaited "Nudes" feature. The annual story, which last year featured Jennifer Morrison and Naya Rivera, includes — along with Bell in its 2014 feature — Jenna Dewan Tatum, Minnie Driver, and Nia Long, all of them in the buff.
"I talk a big game about being comfortable in my skin," Bell, 33, tells the beauty magazine. "I wanted to put my money where my mouth was."
Indeed, the Veronica Mars star does just that. Bell smolders in the sexy black and white pic taken by photographer Carter Smith. Stripped down and covered in streaks of sand, Bell kneels on a beach with her blonde bob, glimmering in the sun after being soaked by the ocean. Dax Shepard's wife gives the camera an innocent gaze while her arms cover her chest. The Disney star rests her palms on a small mound, while her lean legs are partially-buried in sand.
After welcoming her first child, 13-month-old daughter Lincoln, in March 2013, Bell's "big game" talk was centered on getting back to work rather than obsessing over her pre-baby body. "Look, I'm like any other woman. All this evolved b.s. that I'm telling you is my mantra: It's not something I practice naturally," she told Redbook magazine last September.
"I had to surrender to not worrying about the way I looked, how much I weighed, because that's just part of the journey of having a baby," she added last fall. "I am not a woman whose self-worth comes from her dress size."
