Better from the Back: Kristen Bell's Sexy LBD

We wish Kristen Bell would just walk away. Not because we don’t love the actress (we do!), but because lately, she’s been wearing some outfits that have a seriously sexy rear view.

Namely, the black Monique Lhuillier dress that she wore on The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson earlier this week. It’s deceptively simple from the front, but features a full-back lace panel that shows a whole lot of skin and dips very low.

This is the third time in the past few weeks when we’ve wanted to give the Hit & Run star the “better from the back” stamp. The first was when she sported a satin Jenny Packham jumpsuit at the film’s L.A. premiere (the majority of StyleWatchers agreed she looked hottest from behind), and the second was at the Do Something Awards, where Bell rocked a hairstyle that looked like nothing special from the front, but was a gorgeous mix of braids in the back.

We love the idea of a dress or hairstyle that offers a little style surprise in the form of a funky rear view. And we’re especially into this latest look. Tell us: What do you think about Bell’s LBD?
