42nd Annual CMA Awards Red Carpet

Taylor Swift, for me, was the Best Dressed at this event. LOVE it, Love it, adore it, want it.

Her sequin and crystal embellished Kaufman Franco gown is just amazing. Much improved from Monday’s Glamour Awards.

I loved the Jil Sander Spring 2009 collection which was full of fringed ensembles draped over stretch bodysuits.

I would not have thought Nicole Kidman would pick something from this collection, but as usual she wears it with both style and grace.

Reese Witherspoon is usually a devotee of Nina Ricci, but last night chose to wear this exquisite Marchsea Spring 2009 asymmetric gown.

The lace cut-out details adds a dramatic effect to the gown, and the bold red lips adds to the overall vampy seductive look.

Kellie Pickler sparkled in an off-the-shoulder silver beaded Zuhair Murad gown with a ruched bodice, which gives her a Jessica Rabbit silhouette. The dress also had a draped back.

Her stunning jewels were from Swarovski.

I am not at all crazy about Carrie Underwood’s yellow Roberto Cavalli gown. I am not sure if it is the colour or the dress itself, but something is not quite right.

The completed her look with a stunning gold Nancy Gonzalez clutch.

Miley Cyrus opted for colour over sparkle, wearing a white Roberto Cavalli halter neck gown with a colourful floral detail on the base of her gown, and black sequin detail on the waist and neckline.

Jewel’s yale blue halter Roberto Cavalli gown was embellished with a single gold detail on the empire waist. I love that she wore her wavy hair back in a loose bun.

She completes her look with multiple bracelets on both her arms and a gold box clutch.

Julianne Hough is perfect pink perfection.

Her gown was by Angel Sanchez and she sparkled with Daniel Swarovski bracelets and clutch.

Miranda Lambert wears many gold necklaces, to bring some life to her plain blue strapless satin gown.

Shania Twain opted for a black mini, with Giuseppe Zanotti floral heels, which are beautiful, but it’s her clutch which stands out for me. ♥

Michelle Branch goes was too casual for this event for my liking.

    kellie pickler looks bizarre, sort of like an orange county housewife that’s had too much work done. not at youthful.

    Love Kellie’s dress though, and the way it hangs on her body – it’s stunning.

    ~Nicole Kidman is boring and shouldn’t attempt anything fringey, in my opinion.
    ~Shania let me down. She is too sexy for that boring black.
    ~Michelle needs more experience on the red carpet I think.
