Hayden Panettiere In Roberto Cavalli – 2012 CMT Artists Of The Year

Hayden Panettiere attended the 2012 CMT Artists Of The Year at The Factory in Franklin, Tennessee yesterday evening.

The ‘Nashville’ actress, who served as host for this event, opted for a bright fuchsia-pink asymmetrical Roberto Cavalli gown with a slashed opening on the bodice and a thigh-high slit.

Bright colours were clearly the order of the day, as she teamed her gown with red Giuseppe Zanotti satin peep-toes and turquoise Sutra jewellery.

I’m sad to say I don’t like anything about this look as it feels so dated.

I can see that she was going for the glamorous host look, but ended up looking like a Miss World contestant.

I prefer Hayden with shorter hair and a shorter hemline.

    Well, I think she looks very pretty (she tends to opt for looks that shorten her and enhance her broad shoulders, and here she has, in my opinion, successfully elongated her silhouette) and I love the turquoise against the pink, but after reading your comments, she really does look like a Miss World contestant.

      i agree, she pulled it off. I like it. And I love Nashville, the music on the show is great

    • SilentVisitor December 4, 2012 at 14:17 #

      Wow, I totally agree with you. It looks like a different dress

    • Linda December 4, 2012 at 15:01 #

      Wow. Now I can see clearly that this dress needs height…

    • TeaAtTwo December 4, 2012 at 15:19 #

      The dress is not really my style but it looks x1000 better and more appealing on that Teresa model.

      • mm December 4, 2012 at 16:36 #

        Very true, teresa looks regal

      • Yeliz December 4, 2012 at 21:30 #

        Completely agree.

    This dress reminds me of a dress Victoria Beckham wore.. by Roberto Cavalli too for the Beckham’s World Cup Party in 2006.

      thanks for the trip down memory lane. she wouldn’t be caught dead wearing that now LOL 😀

    • jones19 December 4, 2012 at 23:02 #

      Wow I had forgotten that gorgeous gown. Loved her Cavalli phase lol.

  5. Angeline December 4, 2012 at 12:38 #

    Love the color of her dress, but not a fan of matchy matchy accessory. And red shoes with that outfit, seriously????

    • Beta December 4, 2012 at 13:42 #

      yes, the shoes are off. Im not a fan of the hair either

  6. noo December 4, 2012 at 13:49 #

    I like the look, but I think she looks like a cheap version pf heidi klum!

  7. Christine December 4, 2012 at 14:37 #

    Tacky and them shoes are a no no.

  8. Linda December 4, 2012 at 14:59 #

    I kinda like it only because she looks so happy and comfortable in this.

    However, I have to agree with FC’s assessment.

  9. Nat39 December 4, 2012 at 18:29 #

    The look does feel dated, her styling is awfully non-elegant, plus she lacks height to pull of this gown, and her overly cheerful attitude isn’t working either.

  10. Moxie December 4, 2012 at 19:15 #

    Fuchsia and red do not belong together. EVER.

  11. jones19 December 4, 2012 at 23:03 #

    She seriously lacks height to pull this off.

  12. EmmaWoodhouse December 5, 2012 at 01:27 #

    I love pleats but the slashed neckline and the slit are super tacky. I do like turquoise and pink, but the dress, the awful shoes, the awful hair–all together it’s totally Miss World and totally tacky.

  13. Jess2 December 5, 2012 at 03:42 #

    Dated is a good description. We have seen this style before, and there isn’t anything unique or original about this look. I don’t like the inclusion of the red pumps.
