Whilst I’m still bewildered at Kellie Pickler’s red carpet Badgley Mischka brown gown, she managed to redeem herself by wearing a Zuhair Murad Spring 2009 Couture dress when she performed at the CMT Music Award show.

The finalist on the fifth season of American Idol wore a sexy strapless silver paillette beaded dress to dazzled the crowds, as sung her hit single “Best Days of Your Life”.

Her blonde wavy hair and Christian Louboutin Differa silver sandals completed the much improved look.
