2010 Academy of Country Music Awards Red Carpet – Jennifer Nettles

Most Consistent Award
Whilst most of the others on the red carpet of the 2010 Academy of Country Music Awards wore cute pastels, nudes or white, Jennifer Nettles opted for something darker.

The soft-gothic look included a black strapless gown and dark smoky eyes.

I love how the gown is fitted to the thigh then trails out into a long train.

As much as I do love this look, the silver pendent was one accessory too much with this look.

Who Wore Kai Kuhne Better? Marisa Tomei or Jennifer Nettles

Marisa Tomei wore this origami style Kai Kuhne Fall 2009 black and white to the “Latisse” Launch Party in LA during March of last year.

Marisa never usually disappoints on the carpet, but I’m not crazy about the length of this dress on her.

Jennifer Nettles wore this dress in December last year when she walked the red carpet at the “32nd Kennedy Center Honors” in Washington.

This dress seems to fit Jennifer better and the length isn’t quite so awkward so Jen wins this for me.

Runway To 2010 Grammy Awards – Jennifer Nettles In Victoria Beckham

I just love the fact that celebrities are loving the Victoria Beckham dress collection.

First up on the 2010 Grammy red carpet was Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush of Sugarland.

Jennifer looks stunning wearing a red Victoria Beckham Spring 2010 gown with cut-out details and black stripes.

When posing on the red carpet Jennifer turned to show us the criss cross detail on the back.

I’m totally loving this look. It’s perfectly sophisticated, yet relaxed enough to be worn on the Grammy’s red carpet.

What a great start to the night.

Grammy Nominations Concert Live!

Jennifer Nettles looked stunning as usual wearing a Yigal Azrouël Resort 2010 red one-sleeved silk shantung dress, which I think would’ve looked even better if it was sleeveless.

A contrasting belt and clutch, plus fuschia pink Christian Louboutin Very Galaxy peep-toes complete the look.

Keri Hilson continues her slide.

This houndstooth and striped Stella McCartney knit dress with lace panels shouldn’t have been considered as a red carpet dress.

She used to be so fierce on the red carpet.

Maybe she should do what Rihanna did and come to London and discover some new designers, because she’s clearly run out of ideas.

Fergie looks gorgeous in this one shoulder dress covered in ombre sequins by The Blonds, which has the same spike details as the dress Rihanna wore recently.

I love the dress, but those spikes are just plain scary.

When I go out I have enough to worry about when it comes to scuffing my shoes, I don’t want to have to worry about poking my eyes out as well.

Katy Perry wore an embroidered Ema Savahl dress with a sassy hemline.

By keeping her accessories to a minimum she didn’t overload her look.

Lilac Casadei heels completed the look.

43rd Annual CMA Awards

Nicole Kidman looks AMAZING.

L’Wren Scott dressed her client in Prada for her previous red carpet appearance to a weak applause, today Nicole is blowing me away in a hot pink L’Wren Scott Spring 2010 embroidered gown.

I love the cut, and the sexy silhouette which gives Nicole some curves we’ve never seen before.

Yes we’d love to see a Nicole switch up her designers more often, but when she looks this great in Scott’s designs it’s no wonder she keeps going back for more.

BDOTW contender for sure.

If any of you are surprised Taylor Swift is wearing a gold glittering with sequins, you haven’t been reading this blog for very long.

This is Taylor’s trademark, and I don’t blame her.

This Reem Acra sequin strapless gold gown with tulle skirt looks like a Princess dress, and I’m sure she felt very special wearing it.

Every princess has a prince, so it’s shame Taylor Lautner was in London on her big night.

She’s another contender.

From the sublime to tragic.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen Kellie Pickler look so bad.

It’s not the fault of her David Meister pewter lame gown, it’s the hair.

The strawberry blonde colour doesn’t work. This is worst than a blonde Katharine McPhee.

Martina McBride wore a Georges Hobeika Fall 2008 Couture silver metallic strapless gown with a beaded bodice.

I loved the gown, but the draped detail on the hips didn’t work for me on Martina.

Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland never disappoints on the red carpet.

This time she wore a stunning strapless Luisa Beccaria Fall 2009 midnight blue siren tulle gown with a frilly detailed hem and train.

Michelle Branch shuns wearing a gown to give us a young cute look wearing an aqua blue Matthew Williamson jewel detailed dress from the Fall 2009 collection.

Carrie Underwood typically gives her big hair and an embellished dress, but her Theia dress is a bit shapeless for my liking.

Leann Rimes should be wearing red. j/k

The good girl gone bad lives us to her current image by vamping things up with heavy make-up, but contrasts that with a white angelic 3.1 Phillip Lim gown.

Faith Hill wore a beautiful mauve strapless Azzaro gown which already had a jeweled halter strap, so I’m confused as to why she then added more necklaces.

Feels like overkill to me which is a shame.

Miranda Lambert opted for a Nicole Miller gown with an open back and beaded details on the shoulders.

2009 CMT Music Awards

Best Dressed Award
After the CFDA Awards red carpet, the CMT Awards didn’t have as many wow moments.

Jennifer Nettles was by a very long mile the Best Dressed for me.

The singer glowed in a champagne Rachel Roy Fall 2009 strapless bustier dress.

I love the asymmetrical hem line, the gathered detail around the hips and way she elegantly styled her hair.

The only downsides for me were the clutch and the tie-dye Brian Atwood pumps.

Predictable, but Still Cute Award
Taylor Swift loves to sparkle on these occasions and she did wearing a Collette Dinnigan Resort 2009 mini with shoestring straps and a tiered skirt.

Her look was perfected with a pair of metallic Prada jeweled platform heels, and her hair elegantly swept back into a side bun.

Best Use of Colour Award
Singer and dancer Julianne Hough opted for a tiered coral Jenny Packham Spring 2009 cocktail dress.

The colour is gorgeous on her, she really stands out on this red carpet.

I love embellished details on the neckline.

Her look was completed with champagne coloured Guiseppe Zanotti heels which had a jewel detail.

Most Surprising Award
I’m glad Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson opted for this cute Elizabeth & James blue floral strapless tulip dress.

Just because she has a very athletic figure it doesn’t mean she can’t wear this floaty, ethereal look.

I would’ve loved to have seen her hair pulled back.

Best Rock Chick Award
Sheryl Crow wore a black tuxedo jacket and a cowl neck black top, but she added leather pants, studded heels and a necklace featuring mini skulls to toughen up her sexy look.

Expected More Award
Martina McBride opted for a grey tunic dress with an embellished neckline which looks fabulous on her but normally the singer goes all out.

This feel like something she just threw on.

Worst Colour Award
Whilst almost everyone else opted minis to show off their summer tanned and toned legs, Kellie Pickler opted for a Badgley Mischka Pre-Fall 2009 gown.

I love the embellished neckline and the cut of the dress does wonders for her figure, but this has to be the worst possible colour.

She should have opted for something more bright and colourful to match her sparkling personality.

Worst Hair Award
I’m not particularly loving the high neck long sleeve nature of this dress, but what I really don’t like Laura Bell Bundy hair.

I’m not sure if they are hair extension – although they very much look like it – but the style is quite hideous.

Worst Dressed Award
Model Karolina Kurkova wore a black Azzaro Gentleman’s Tux dress with Aldo ‘Seace’ black leather ankle boots.

For a premiere, screening, or gallery opening in New York this would have worked, but for the CMT Awards cute colourful sparkling dresses are almost mandatory. This work doesn’t work for me at all for this event.
