No one graced last night's CMT Awards stage as much as cohost and starlet Kristen Bell, and we've got five stunning outfits to serve as fashionable proof. Setting the bar high, she started the evening off in a cap-sleeved, gold-embellished Reem Acra Fall '12 gown and matching clutch. Then, the blond beauty took on two different Monique Lhuillier numbers, donning a quirky, strapless, ombré, sequined frock, complete with feather caplet, and then a sleeker black chiffon gown adorned with a gold halter-style neckline. The sparkle and shine didn't stop there; Kristen also glowed in a showstopping, crystal-encrusted, nude, one-shouldered Collette Dinnigan creation from the designer's vintage collection. Finally, for the afterparty festivities, she slipped into a sparkly, cocktail-perfect LWD and pointy-toe pumps. Got all that?

>> Though Monique Lhuillier injected an element of toughness into her Fall 2012 collection — leather, metallics, and sheer paneled cutouts — no Lhuillier collection would be complete without some utterly breathtaking gowns. And while there were plenty of lovely cocktail numbers printed in a dramatic molten-lava motif — and even some chic-looking pant options — it was the floor-grazing, decadent evening dresses that really stole the show.
Monique Lhuillier is known for her gorgeous wedding gowns and ethereal red-carpet dresses, but for Fall, her ready-to-wear collection carried an edge. Showing leather details and using "dragon red" as her main color, Lhuillier was focused on being fierce. Watch on to see what makes this designer feel sexy, and check out the full runway show right here.
If there were any Oscar nominees in the house tonight, they're likely putting in their requests for dresses as we speak. Monique Lhuillier's Fall collection was filled with the kind of full-on dramatic glamour the designer's become known for — the kind that would light up any red carpet. This season, Lhuillier hones in on her craft with a dark, sexy tilt. Cutouts, black and red lace, and edgier leather accents gave Monique's girl a vixen-esque quality, albeit one with a hint of the retro-inspired. Models hit the catwalk with slicked waves and red lips to further the '40s feel; we get a sense of the era's sultry side and a touch of the fashion forward in leather bands and angular sheer insets and cutouts. She marries both classic glamour and a modern sophistication effortlessly in every piece. It's one gorgeous design after the other — a rich palette and a wash of embellishment, lace, or a thigh-high slit to amp up every showstopper. But even when the show closes there's a sense that it still isn't finished — part two will be seeing our A-listers take the looks to the red carpet.
