Mom-to-Be Kristen Bell Stuns on the Red Carpet

07/31/2014 at 02:30 PM ET

She’s glowing!

Kristen Bell was all smiles when she stepped out on Wednesday night for the Lexus Short Film Series, presented by The Weinstein Company in Los Angeles.

And although the actress — who is expecting her second child with husband Dax Shepard — kept her baby belly under wraps, she still stunned in a navy shift dress from Monique Lhuillier and nude pumps while carrying the Edie Parker Jean clutch.

While the House of Lies and Veronica Mars star may have already perfected her pregnancy style, playing the name game hasn’t been so easy.

Bell told PEOPLE earlier this month that the couple — already parents to 16-month-old daughter Lincoln — are “completely stumped” on a name for their baby-on-the-way.

“It’s hard to take focus off her and think about the second baby, even though the second baby is here and growing,” Bell, 34, admitted.

And making the mom-to-be look gorgeous on the red carpet.

She is lovely as always.

Sorry, that looks like a potato sack and the blunt cut hair does nothing for her. Hair either needs to be long or layered, and something flowy or tight on a pregnant body. That dress is one of the least flattering maternity dresses I’ve ever seen.

What? on

Not a fan of the dress, and it’s wrinkled too. She is very pretty but this look is not flattering.

Obviously, Veronica if a girl, and Logan if a boy 🙂

I love her and her husband both and think she looks fantastic. @Amaryllis – sorry that she doesn’t meet your tough standards. I am sure you are absolutely gorgeous……NOT.

I hope it’s a girl and that little Quinoa Prius will be as pretty as her Mommy.
