Kristen Bell was dressed daringly for an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” this week.
The ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ star arrived to film a hide-and-seek video in a daring red Nanushka outfit. The actress wore vegan red leather pants for the occasion, layered under a matching red puffer jacket and layered under a long-sleeved top. Her look was completed with futuristic sunglasses with orange acetate frames.
For shoes, the “Frozen” star donned a pair of white leather boots. The style featured pointed toes and chunky black heels, totaling at least 3 inches in height. Bell’s boots added a distinctly ’70s element to her outfit, cementing it as both modern and futuristic.
Bell then changed into another monochrome red midi dress and pointy toe boots for an interview with Kimmel. “It’s a red story today, Jimmy. It’s really more of an experiment, today’s outfits,” Bell replied humorously when Kimmel joked that she was wearing a second red outfit. You can watch his full interview below.
White boots like Bell’s add a modern twist to the classic ankle boot style. Block-heeled pairs provide extra support, as well as a groovy neutral pop reminiscent of vintage go-go styles. In addition to Bell, stars like Margot Robbie, Chiara Ferragni and Lady Gaga have worn white Chanel, Dior and Pleaser boots in recent weeks.
Bell’s shoes often veer on the casual side. The “Queenpins” actress is known for her comfy slippers, slides and Birkenstock, Ugg and Allbirds clogs when off duty. His casual ensembles also include Nike and Under Armor sneakers, as well as Dr. Martens boots. Bell’s red carpet shoes include metallic, colorful and neutral point-toe pumps and platform sandals from Christian Louboutin, Brian Atwood, Stuart Weitzman and Jimmy Choo.
