I’m a country music fan, as some of you may know. And many–not all–country music artists glorify God in their music. However, I’m not as much of a fan of some of the immodest outfits that many of the female artists opt for. More specifically, the desire to show cleavage is a popular fashion trend.
Surprisingly, it was Hollywood that brought modesty to the CMT Music Awards this year. Actress Kristen Bell hosted the event with Toby Keith, and her dresses were so adorable, I actually was looking forward to each wardrobe change.
I’ve listed four of my favorites.
The following gold gown was my most favorite of my favorites. I love the glistening gold embellished design and how the material fits the figure without being tight. The cap sleeves and high neck are modest without being stuffy. The skirt flowing from mid-calf and the hint of a train are so subtle and elegant. It’s got all the right elements for glamour.

Bell’s silver, crystal-encrusted gown was another glistening ensemble, but with a floor-length straight skirt. This dress featured a one shoulder strapless design that looked very modest on her body type.
The following black chiffon gown was another stunning example of elegance and glamour. Straight black and to the floor, this dress featured a gold halter-style neckline that crisscrossed in the front.
How about this blush ombré dress? I thought it was so adorable and fun. The skirt could have been a tad longer, but it wasn’t so short that I’d call it immodest. And I loved the feather caplet covering the strapless shoulders. What a great contrast to the sleek, sequined fabric and simple design of the dress.
I would like to include two dresses that had the complete opposite effect on me. Where Bell’s dresses were modest and elegant, I felt these two were very immodest. But unfortunately, the design element featured is trending in fashion today, and all I can say is: eeeesh! It’s the plunging neckline. And both Kellie Pickler and Shawna Thompson wore the most extreme versions.
Of course, this style is a hit for red carpet fashion gurus, but personally, I think it’s ridiculous and so immodest. What’s next? Seriously! What’s left to take away?
PI girls, Bell’s dresses above demonstrate that modest clothes are so much more beautiful than immodest, no matter who’s wearing it. I pray you agree that wearing revealing outfits only sexualizes you.
So ladies, what did you think of my four favorite Kristen Bell fashion inspirations? Which is your favorite? Do you agree that modest is so much more beautiful than immodest?
