Did Kristin Cavallari steal Kristen Bell’s thunder?


I don’t really get the whole Kristen Bell thing. I didn’t watch Veronica Mars, so that might be a factor. I’ve seen Kristen in other things, and I’ve read interviews with her, and it’s not that I dislike her or anything. She seems like a very bright, engaged, talented girl. But why do people like her so much? She’s just kind of there. Anyway, just my opinion.

Kristen seems to be trying some fashionista moves maybe? Here she is at the LA premiere of When In Rome, that dumb looking romantic comedy also starring Josh Duhamel and Dax Shepherd. I was prepared to like this brown cut-out dress… but then I saw that the two pieces of the dress seem to be tied to together with a thick rope. Not cute.

Huffington Post points out that another Kristen kind of stole Bell’s thunder. Kristin Cavallari also went to the premiere, and she decked herself out in hot pink and killer shoes. I hate myself, but Cavallari looks amazing. This is what the star should wear when attending her own premiere.

    Kristen C’s dress is hideous and those hooker shoes don’t match or look good with it.

    I don’t like Kristen B’s any more, but at least she doesn’t double as a road flare.

    Yeesh, who’s dressing these girls? Hopefully not Rachel Zoe.

    Thank you so much for that first paragraph Kaiser. I was feeling like the only person who doesn’t get the Kristen Bell thing. She’s just sort of there, not very interesting. (I didn’t watch Veronica Mars either…)

    Cavallari’s dress is bad. But unless she knew that KB was going to wear some drab brown sheath (!!!), I don’t know if we can say it was a deliberate undermine.

  3. nAynAy says:

    Snowball: You might be exacty right about Rachel Zoe being their stylists.

    I personally think that Kristin C. is trying to hard. She is so desperate to keep herself in the spotlight, so much so, that I’m quite sick of her already.

  4. nAynAy says:

    I just don’t see what the appeal is about her…

  5. Wow says:

    I don’t feel either one can be categorized as stealing anyone’s thunder being that neither of these two are actually in the movie. So the focus wouldn’t really be on them as a main attraction past the red carpet. Kristen’s dress is killer, but she suffers from having a “stank attitude” which completely ruins anything great she wears. And I wouldn’t have put those particular Loub’s with this dress and I don’t care what J-lo has to say about it.

  6. smith says:

    To be honest, she is rather meh post-Veronica Mars, but on that show she rocked the house.

  7. snowball says:

    Wow: Kristen Bell is co-starring in the movie.

    I have no idea if that other Kristen is in it or not.

  8. buellblaster says:

    Kristen Bell reminds me of vanilla pudding…bland, unappetizing and forgettable. And her dress looks like a curtain complete with tie-backs.

  9. Kevin says:

    Kristen C. is totally Hizz-ot!! She’s my new favorite on The Hills. I think that she is why Lauren “meat curtains” Conrad left the show. 1) She’s Brody’s ex 2) She ain’t shy about being a bitch. The girl is evil, but that doesn’t take any of her heat off her in my opinion. The only thing I could say about her is her humps,,,her humps,,,her humps ain’t got no lumps!!! (she do have the major flat bootie)

    “at least she doesn’t double as a road flare.” LOL @ snowball.

    I loved Veronica Mars. Great show, great character, and she was perfect for the role.
    Can’t say I’ve loved everything else she’s done since then, but I guess it’s hard to go from a very small show to movie stardom.
    I will only watched When in Rome on DVD to see the scenery.

    Oh yeah, I don’t like either dress.

  11. mary jones says:

    WOW you are so stupid. Kristen Bell is one of the stars of the movie!

  12. Kevin says:

    I smell some ownage!!

  13. wow says:

    Pop a midol, Mary. And Kevin go play in the freeway or sand box. I didn’t realize that and obviously misread this. My bad.

    BUT I still stand by my statement that neither of these two are owning anyone in these frocks.

    Carry on.

  14. Kevin says:

    EZ there Wow. Just having some fun.

  15. EMV says:

    Sorry but Kristin looked like a hooker. The dress and the shoes are great, but not together…she looked cheap.

  16. Camille says:

    I’m so glad that there are others here who share my feelings about KB. I just don’t get her appeal at all and it would seem that she is getting cast more and more unfortunately.
    I find her facial features hard and unattractive and her acting isn’t all that great either. Maybe the studios are trying to cast her as the ‘new’ Cameron Diaz? (ie: blonde, goofy, ‘funny’, girl-next-door). But I’m just not buying it. I also really, really do NOT like that brown dress.

    I have to admit that I have a soft spot for KC, I think she is very pretty and she calls it like it is (on a show full of bimbos I think she comes across better than the Audrinas etc.). I’ve always liked her better than boring, not that hot LC.

    Anyway Team KC on this one!

  17. Anna says:

    I never understood the KB hype either; and am sick of seeing the movie promos everywhere I look.

  18. Anna says:

    OMG! KB’s being set up as the new Jennifer Aniston!

  19. Play-Doh says:

    I adore Kristen Bell, but you MUST see Veronica Mars to understand what all the fuss is about; it was the perfect role and framed her talents beautifully. You might also Netflix the campy 2005 musical version of Reefer Madness – KBell sings and dances in a delightfully funny and sexy manner. She needs roles that have an edge, so she can escape being “the cute blonde,” and really shine.

  20. Adrienne says:

    Yeah, the person above me has it right: you have GOT to see Veronica Mars to understand the awesomeness that is Kristen Bell. Every single person who commented here about finding her “meh” also admitted to not having seen VMars…thus their opinion cannot be validated 🙂

  21. harlean29 says:

    Wow! I bet all eyes were on her! Look at those legs!!!! Yeah I don’t think Bell should have worn brown. Very blah.

  22. Eileen Yover says:

    Soooooo….which one is which? They look the same to me.

  23. CB Rawks says:

    I loved Veronica Mars, so yeah that’s where my affection for KB comes from.

  24. NicoleAM says:

    Wow, being in bed w/ MTV sure has its perks! How does KC get all these invites? Love the dress though.

  25. Annabelle says:

    I like Kristen Bell. She’s cute.

    But Kristin Cavallari has had plastic surgery right? Her face looks totally different from the Laguna Beach days. Granted, I haven’t seen many episodes, but didn’t she used to be kind of tubby and very plain in the face?

  26. Jazz says:

    Kristin C looks like a hooker. I don’t get her appeal either.

  27. shadowd says:

    I thought I would chime in also, I do not believe you can say KC upstaged KB for one simple reason, KB is an actor, she is in the movie, and yes maybe she is bland and the dress is hideous, but she has done a number of films and had a hit TV show, and she is slowly making her way up the Hollywood ladder.

    KC on the other hand is a reality famewhore, yes she is near the top of the famewhores, but she is still just a reality famewhore, which puts her below cable actors.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe the standings are Movies, Network TV, Cable TV, Reality, Shopping Network.

    Watch Veronica Mars. Then you’ll get it.
