Kristen Bell SLAYS the Emmys with floral gown and gas Insta updates

While Tom Hiddleston and John Mayer kept Twitter entertained through last night’s Emmys, Kristen Bell set to work with winning over Instagram.

Before the event even began, the Bad Moms star used the ‘gram to keep fans up-to-date with her red carpet beauty prep – a process which included a suspect-looking lip conditioning sticker and whole lot of joking around.

Clearly in the depths of a makeover, the actress shared a snap of herself wearing a face mask with the caption: “I have serious doubts this is actually a lip conditioning sticker my makeup artist @simonesiegl applied over my mouth…I’m pretty sure she just wanted me to zip it.”

She then posted a pic of her puffed up hair and wrote: “Caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and said, confidently ‘This looks GREAT guys!  Let’s go!’  Then I was informed we’re only half way done.”

It looks like the 36-year-old’s glam time really did pay off as she appeared on the red carpet in one of the most stunning dresses of the night – a full skirted floral gown with a perfectly plunging neckline which has already been classed as bridal inspiration by online commentators.

Model Emily Ratajkowski, American Pie star Natasha Lyonne and Golden Globe nominee Sarah Paulson also wowed on the night with their very different outfits of choice.

As if Kristen hadn’t already made her way into our go-to Insta list, the Forgetting Sarah Marshall star finished off her night just as we would – by tucking into a big slice of pizza.

Looking slightly less glam than in her earlier pics, the actress shared a photo of herself with sauce on her chin alongside the caption: “The shading on my chin tonight was courtesy of @pizzasauce.”
