Best Dressed Award
Carrie Underwood always looks fantastic on the red carpet, but I feel like she deliberately stepped it up a gear for this event.
The ‘hint of pink’ one-shouldered Randi Rahm gown was so beautiful, elegant and so far away from what I expected, that she was my best dressed for this event.
Golden Girl/Hips Don’t Lie Award
Kellie Pickler also opted for a golden gown. She looked outstanding, as she showed off her curves in her gold strapless sequin fish scale Zuhar Murad Haute Couture Spring 2009 gown with dramatic train, whilst carrying a Daniel Swarovski gold clutch.
What an absolute knock out. I am amazed at how smokin’ hot her body looks here.
Best Dressed Teen Award
Taylor Swift also changed gears. I was also expecting a blinged out, metallic, heavily embellished dress from her, but instead we got this gorgeous red hot Angel Sanchez Spring 2009 one-shouldered gown, which she complimented with red lipstick.
My first I thought was the gown needed something to nip in her waist, but on hindsight it would have ruined the sleek line of the gown.
The singer wore her dress with Neil Lane jewels, and a VBH envelope clutch.
2 For 2 Can’t Hate Award
I can’t hate Miley Cyrus’ clay grey Monique Lhullier one-shouldered gown, which was jeweled embellished, but I can really hate the hair.
Yes she is a teen, but side pony’s are not acceptable pass the age of 5.
Most Predictable Award
I love Nicole Kidman for the instant glamour she brings to every event, but I would really love to see her embrace other designers more often.
Again we see her another L’Wren Scott gown, from the designers Fall 2009 collection. The turtle-neck gown, with a cut-out back, and revealing split was a great look for the actress, who was at this event to support her husband.
Oh, did I mention L’Wren Scott is her stylist?
Best Carrie Underwood Impersonation Award
As much as I love Julianne Hough’s gold and bronze beaded v-neck Zuhair Murad gown, I just keep thinking that this is something Carrie Underwood would have worn to this same event maybe 2 years ago.
Gorgeous girl, gorgeous dress, but the de ja vu’s got me thinking mmmm?
Just OK Award
After Jennifer Nettles amazing dress at the Grammy’s this gorgeous lilac plunge-neck gown feels like a safe choice. I would have liked to see her wear something more lively, to go with her fun loving personality.
She looks hot though.
Most Disappointing Award
With all the colour on the red carpet, I am surprised LeAnn Rimes opted for a LBD.
I love the serpent ring and gladiators though.
Best White Gown Award
There were a lot of white gowns on this red carpet, but I particularly loved Jennifer Love Hewitt’s. She wore a white flowing, ethereal Robert Rodriguez halter gown, with a tiered bodice.
I also loved that she wore her hair up.
Best Clutch Award
Miranda Lambert wore a racy red strapless Nicole Miller minidress, but I feel myself more drawn to her gold Mary Norton clutch.
On Trend Award
Martina McBride follows the trend of night wearing a white flowing Badgley Mischka gown. The gown was embellished with embroidered turquoise beads and jewels on her shoulder.
Next time Marissa, please do your red carpet homework.
