The London premiere of "Fool's Gold" was a chance for the UK's hottest celebs to shine. Unfortunately, top British model, Portia Freeman, seemed ill-prepared for the paparazzi. Her satiny, structured bustier-dress is eye-catching, but her hair seemed to be ill-used. The mass of wavy almost-curls was pulled back from the face with a clip, but the entire look is riddle with frizz and a fuzzy cast which detracts from the precisely painted face.
 
I can't tell whether the style is an attempt to enhance natural wave which went awry, or if it's a matter of too-little effort or too-little time to prepare. Either way, it's a shame to mask such a beautiful young lady behind such a slap-dash style. She would have been best served by a simple up-style, such as a smoothly-wrought French twist.
 
Kristen Bell - 04/10/2008

Her soft blonde locks are razor cut with minimal layers and wispy tendrils are left loose to frame the face and enhance the smile.
 
Her strapless dress is beachy-summery and perfect and is made even more stunning by the mother-of-pearl and gold necklace and matched earrings. The simple styling and summery look is ideal for the daytime premiere and Kristen keeps her title as "America's Sweetheart".
