Best Use Of Colour Award
Carrie Underwood brightened up the red carpet at the 2010 CMT Music Awards last night.

The former “American Idol” winner won Wednesday night’s top honor, video of the year for “Cowboy Casanova,” and CMT performance of the year for “Temporary Home”. Both awards are chosen by fans tuned into the live show.

The country singer is becoming less predictable on the red carpet, which I’m sure many of you will appreciate.

Her fuchsia pink Jenny Packham Fall 2010 dress is not what I would’ve expected from her, but it’s been a while since she did the embellished gown look on the red carpet.

This stand out keyhole dress has a black crystal beading detail on the waist and along the ruffled collar.

As much as I like the dress and the colour, the beaded the neckline is not my favourite part of this dress.

The star completed her look with a Jenny Packham clutch and Swarovski jewels.
