ACMA red carpet style stars

The Academy of Country Music Awards – the country music world’s self-declared “Party of the Year” – kicked off to a rollickin’, country-lovin’ good time last night with a boot-tapping performance by Carrie Underwood. Hosted by Reba McIntire and Blake Shelton, the evening was full of performances, both fun (as with a rousing, booze-soaked rendition of “Red Solo Cup”) and heartfelt. Of course, it being a country kinda night, there was enough sparkly cleavage, formal denim, and big hair to last us all year. Amidst these Texas-size accoutrements, however, there were a few fashion standouts. Here, we’ve declared our red-carpet winners from last night’s ACMA’s.

 

Carrie Underwood

The always-gorgeous Ms. Underwood had her famous legs on display in this lovely gown.

 

Taylor Swift

Looking more polished than usual, Taylor wowed in an architectural column gown and straight locks.

 

Nicole Kidman

We love the whimsical collar and illusion neckline, which add interest to a simple black dress.

 

Shannon DeLima

Marc Anthony’s new lady-friend strutted down the red carpet in this amazing yellow gown.

 

Hillary Scott

Lady Antebellum’s lead songstress looked subtly gorgeous in a clingy black dress, stunning emerald earrings, and perfect hair.

 

Miranda Lambert

Bedecked in gold, Lambert looked ready to take home a statuette.

 

Jennifer Nettles

We love the lacey coral number Nettles floated down the carpet in; we’d like it even more sans yellow belt.

 

Karen Fairchild

The Little Big Town singer stood out from her group in a gorgeous sequined dress. Love the wavey, Missoni-esque print – and the daring neckline!

Inky Glam

The 52nd Annual Grammy Awards turned out some killer performances and avant garde get-ups (envision star holding Lady Gaga), but my favorite looks came from “young Hollywood” –whose inky frocks were ultra-glam. Personally, I think the Grammy’s are one of the few Red Carpet events where thigh-skimming mini’s are acceptable. Two of my faves were Lea Michele’s navy Romona Keveza feathery number & Miley Cyrus’ edgy Herve Leger. Although both were totally different in feel, they were equally flawless. Who do I think really stole the show? I think hands-down the number one look of the night came from none other than the 4-time winning Taylor Swift. Her custom Kaufman Franco was AMAAZIINNG. The closest thing I will ever come to such sophisticated blue shimmer is my Chanel blue satin polish–oh well , kudos to her!

Rolling Stone

2 words: Taylor Swift. She might be 19, but this girl rocks—two covers in one month and still leading the U.S. pop charts for 11 weeks. I’m a big music fan (yes, I can be caught with my iPod on singing along to Love Story) and when I got the March issue of Rolling Stone I was so pumped to see her on the cover. Aside from being distracted by her party girl golden locks I couldn’t help but revel in the tarte credit for her makeup cover look! How cool, right?! OK, I digress—back to Taylor. Just reading that feature made me like her more. Totally down-to- earth and driven. Oh and did I mention, she writes or co-writes all of her music. That’s so impressive. It was really refreshing to read about a successful teenager with real goals and determination.
