Kristen Bell: Mother influenced style

Kristen Bell has always admired her mother's "beautiful" fashion sense.

The 31-year-old actress stars as a 1980s television reporter in upcoming romance Big Miracle.

While shooting the movie, Kristen reflected on how much the women in her family influenced her style.

"I grew up in the '80s but it wasn't my prime. But I had older sisters and I definitely looked up to the way my mom dressed," Bell told People magazine during a press event at the Casa Del Mar in Santa Monica.

"The first time I realised, 'Oh, look at these beautiful, stylish women in my life,' was around the time the [Big Miracle] story happened."

Kristen, who is a huge fan of '80s fashion, enjoyed wearing retro styles during the shoot.

"It was really fun working with the costume designer to create all these amazing shoulder pads and all these cool pastels," Kristen explained.

"And [my character's] hair obviously had to be big so we did hot rollers every day which was fun and then teased the crap out of it."

Kristen loved teasing her hair and wearing shoulder pads, but one trend in particular resonated with her the most.

"I wore press-on nails because everybody had long, pink fingernails in the '80s," she smiled.

Big Miracle opens in theatres in the US on February 3.
