She’s one hot mama! 

Kristen Bell looked better than ever (and most of the other stars) in a gorgeous Pamella Roland gown at the Critics’ Choice Awards on Jan. 17 in Santa Monica. While the new mom is no stranger to rocking a red carpet, the sexy halter dress with keyhole opening that showcased her slim post-baby body is a departure from her traditional style — and we’re loving it!

“It’s a little wild for me, but I’m kind of excited about it. I thought maybe, ‘Unexpected New Mom’ would be the title of the look,” the House of Lies star (and new wife to Dax Shepard) told Us Weekly.

While the glamorous dress showed off Bell’s tiny waist and toned arms, her hair and makeup added a hint of rock ‘n’ roll glamour to her style.

Her blonde hair was slicked on the sides, given volume at the top and crown, and pulled into a high, tight bun. The mom of Lincoln, 10 months, also played up her eyes with lots of black eyeliner and a hint of a cat-eye.
