Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson attended the 2009 CMT Music Awards in Nashville wearing an Elizabeth & James strapless dress with gold sequined heels.

The beautiful silk-chiffon dress has an elastic bodice with pleating at empire waist.

Actress Isla Fisher wore the same dress when she attended the benefit screening of “Crude” in Hollywood last week.

She wore her dress with dove grey heels which I prefer as they work much better with the dress, so Isla wins for me.

This dress is available to purchase from Shopbop.com & myWardrobe.com on sale for $346.50 & £197.

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.
