Faith Hill In Chado Ralph Rucci – 2011 CMA Awards

Faith Hill is still the Queen B at these Country Music events.

She was joined on the red carpet at the 2011 CMA Awards in Nashville, Tennessee, last night by her husband Tim McGraw.

The singer wore what appears to be a simple Chado Ralph Rucci Spring 2012 dress.

Her fully beaded three-quarter-length sleeve gown has an etched out panel details in the back.

Faith opted for a voluminous bouffant and cat eyes for a bold look that provided a striking contrast against her white dress.

    that dress is awesome, but that hair is kind of scary. I don’t like how it poofs up from her forehead.

    • Parvati November 10, 2011 at 14:37 #

      I agree.

    The dress is deceptively simple but really quite sensational in its detailing. But the pageant hair almost completely ruins this looks for me. Why, why, why? She could have retained the bouffant at the front (if she was dying for volume), put the rest of her hair in a loose ponytail and this would have been a perfect look for me.

        +2. Im in pain.
        Such an amazing designer. I saw this show and it was all this jaw droppingly beautiful. More stylistis should dip in his treasure trove.

        • Martin November 10, 2011 at 23:20 #

          Totally agree. His work is criminally underutilised on the red carpet.

    Absolutely gorgeous. I love minimalism! BDOTW contender for me xD

    • Rebecca Z November 10, 2011 at 13:08 #

      Totally agree. I even like the big hair–there’s a 60’s verushka vibe going on. BDOTW for sure

    I love it! Even with the voluminous hair-style, which is quite edgy for her. She’s gorgeous!

    • AW November 10, 2011 at 14:50 #

      Absolutely! She puts the 20 year olds and the try-too-hard’s (LeAnn Rimes) to shame.

      So lovely

    BDOTW contender for me! What a great surprise!

  6. Gaber November 10, 2011 at 13:34 #

    I am struggling with the sleeve length – other than that, fantastic!

  7. T November 10, 2011 at 13:40 #

    love the dress, HATE the hair and the make up. it really is startling how easily they can ruin a look…

  8. dee November 10, 2011 at 13:44 #

    Love the dress on her but she should have worn her hair up.

  9. Jones19 November 10, 2011 at 13:58 #

    I know this is the Country Music Awards but the hair is too big! Love the dress though.

  10. Linda November 10, 2011 at 14:14 #

    Great dress, horrible hair and makeup.

  11. JG November 10, 2011 at 14:17 #

    Reminds me of a more form-fitting version of Kirsten Dunst’s Derek Lam a few weeks ago. Beautiful.

  12. DivaMom November 10, 2011 at 14:22 #

    I’m loving this

  13. Ginger November 10, 2011 at 14:30 #

    I absolutely love Chado Ralph Rucci, and can’t imagine why his gowns don’t show up more (except that I’ve heard that he doesn’t give them out for free, so maybe that’s why). Anyway, the dress is incredible, but I’m still undecided about that hair…

    • CB November 10, 2011 at 15:51 #

      I heard him speak once and he said that he doesn’t. Anyone that wears his dresses, purchases them. He is a true artist in fashion and I wish we would see more of his amazing looks.

      BDOW for the dress, sadly the hair brings it down.

  14. Giuseppi Giraffe November 10, 2011 at 14:46 #

    love the whole thing- even the quirky hairdo

    • Sue Jin November 11, 2011 at 09:11 #

      Agree. She looks amazing

    Oh God. Just because she wore Rucci she will be my BDOTW. I want to see more Rucci! He is the King of american couture.

  17. mol November 10, 2011 at 15:32 #

    Such a beautiful dress, the hair does spoil it though….

  18. maria November 10, 2011 at 16:33 #

    i love the simplicity. I love this look even with the questionable hair.

  19. The.Shoe.Freak November 10, 2011 at 18:03 #

    I love the ldress although looks very “Calvin Klein’ish” to me. Ricci is a great american talent.

    Love the hair, love the look. love the eyes and make-up. Good job.

  20. Hannah November 10, 2011 at 21:05 #

    I am in lust with this dress, simple dresses liek these are my absolute favourites, like Hailee Steinfeld at the golden globes in gurung. However, I am not sure what to think of the hair, although I think I prefer it to if it had been in a ponytail which wouldn’t have suited her and maybe would have been to bland fo rthe dress, or a regular red carpet blow out, which would have been to contradictory to the simplicity of the beautiful gown. Overall I’m in serious love.

  21. mattison November 10, 2011 at 21:16 #

    This is a great, albeit uncharacteristic look, for Faith. I like the hair and smokey eye, too- the whole thing reminds me of something Gwen Stefani might wear.

  22. laurakitty November 10, 2011 at 22:53 #

    Love everything!

  23. Victor November 10, 2011 at 23:32 #

    I’m IN LOVE with her!
    She looks so regal!

  24. ramsay November 10, 2011 at 23:40 #

    This is just too chic

  25. laura D November 11, 2011 at 00:29 #

    One of my absolute favorite designers. So happy to see his work on the red carpet

  26. Shaina November 11, 2011 at 17:23 #

    The dress is STUNNING, but the hair is a hot mess. An updo would have been better in my opinion.

  27. MCRUZ37 November 13, 2011 at 05:33 #

    The hair & makeup were a complete disaster. The eye makeup was amatuer at best. Faith Hill is gorgeous & this look aged her 10 years. Ricci’s couture designs for her were absolutely divine & fit Faith like a glove. What a shame that the entire perfomance audiences were left thinking “Who in the world let this stunning, amazing country music icon go on national television for her 1st performance looking like that?”
