Kristen Bell and Dax Shephard aren't your typical celebrity couple. Not only are they super talented, their down-to-earth nature makes them totally relatable. The couple may have walked the red carpet in amazing high-fashion looks, but Kristen Bell and Dax Shephard got ready for the Golden Globes in the exact way you would expect.
On her Instagram page, Bell posted pics of the couple in total chill mode before the show. "I can’t remember exactly," she captioned a photo of her and Shepard eating in bed, "but I’m pretty sure the rule is to eat as much as humanely possible before squeezing into a formal dress. Right?"
On her Instagram (IG) story, Bell posted a series of hilarious videos in which she showed the painstaking process of getting ready for the Golden Globes. She detailed the pinning and tucking involved with her dress, along with the Spanx struggle women know all too well. Getting her jewelry on took a little more effort though.
"When you have the hands and the knuckles of a 12-year-old Playstation addict, you have to shrink them in order to get these bejewels on them," she says in a clip where she has her hand in an ice bucket. She also added a video of her stylist jimmying her bracelets together, and gave her fans a bit of casual, everyday advice. "If you ever need to tie your diamond bracelets together for any reason, just use fishing line."
Through her IG stories, fans got a sneak peak at Bell's beautiful Golden Globe dress. The blush pink Grecian styled gown has a plunging neck line, flowing skirt, and fitted waist, and it looked perfect with Bell's wavy vintage Hollywood hairstyle. She posted a picture of Shepard getting ready without all the fanfare, and it's exactly what fans would expect.
There was a real chance that Bell would bring home an award. The actress was nominated for her performance in her NBC sitcom, The Good Place. The nomination gave her a chance to take home the coveted Best Actress in a Comedy for her role as Elenor Shellstrop, along with the series nomination for Best Television Series — Musical or Comedy.
Believe it or not, this was Bell's first Golden Globe nomination. The actress has been in a number of iconic roles, including her role as Princess Anna in Frozen, and her lead role in Veronica Mars. She was recognized for The Good Place in 2018 when she was nominated for a Teen Choice Award and a Critics Choice Award, but fans were really counting on a Golden Globe win for her in 2019:
With Bell and Shepard's amazing style and effortless humor, they had already won the night for me.
