Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Carrie Underwood was the host of 2010 CMA Awards in Nashville, Tennessee last night.

I absolutely adored her extravagant Talbot Runhof Fall 2010 gown.

I think this gown won’t be that popular with many people because the tulle layered rosette detailed gown is very different from what we’ve seen Carrie wear in the past.

It’s very dark, mysterious and dramatic and Carrie usually does embellished, frothy and cute.

She accessorized her look with a Swarovski crystal clutch.

Do you love it or hate it?

Check back later to see what Carrie wore when she presented the CMAs.

I almost had heart failure when I saw Gwyneth Paltrow in this Atelier Versace Fall 2010 as she arrived at the 2010 CMA Awards in Nashville last night.

What a perfect vision of perfection.

Who knew her Atelier Versace one shoulder beaded ombre gown had a sexy thigh-high split and a cut-out detail on the side.

Jennifer Lopez is kicking herself that she didn’t get to wear this dress first.

Gwynie worked the hell out of this gown. It the power and allure of Versace.

I feel so proud of her because I didn’t know she had this in her.

Christian Louboutin satin peep toes and her straight blonde locks sweeping to one side completes this look.

Definitely in contention for BDOTW and for my BDOTY list.

As you know Gwyneth also performed on the night. Here’s a look at what she wore. Read more…

My first reaction to seeing Katherine Heigl on the red carpet at the 2010 CMA Awards last night was, thank god she’s returned to being blonde.

This year she’s changed her hair colour for movies on several occasions, and I’m sure many of you will agree that blonde works best for her.

She glided down the red carpet wearing a breath-taking Farah Angsana Fall 2010 gown.

The vivid navy blue strapless gown has beautiful simple details like the pleating at the bust and a train which fans out from the thigh.

I’m not crazy about the necklace, but I love the earrings.

Jimmy Choo ‘Jigsaw’ platform sandals and a matching sparkling Jimmy Choo ‘Tube’ clutch completes her look.

Following her appearance at the “Country Strong” Nashville Premiere, Leighton was still in town for the 2010 CMA Awards last night.

The ‘Gossip Girl’ actress is on a very hot streak.

I simply adore her in this Emilio Pucci tropical print dress from the Spring 2011 collection.

A dress like this should maybe only work on a the banks of the French Riviera, but Leighton makes this rise and fall dress work with such confidence.

Her dress is gorgeous, but her Jimmy Choo ‘Ciara’ platform heels are amazing.

I’m sure Miss Ciara will be envious she didn’t get her hands on her namesake heels first.

Stunning Cathy Waterman jewels completes Leighton’s look.

The 2010 CMA Awards took place last night in the home of country music Nashville, Tennessee.

Nicole Kidman has been skipping a few red carpets this year, but she arrived at this event with hubby Keith Urban.

She wore a Dolce & Gabbana white long sleeve lace dress, which she paired with a gorgeous pair of red L’Wren Scott heels.

I really appreciated the bright pop of colour via her heels, yet I’m still not excited about this look.

I wish she’d worn one of the white lace embellished dresses from the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2011 collection.

It’s customary at award show for the female host to change several times and Carrie Underwood didn’t disappoint at the CMAs last night.

Her looks included a kelly green Ina Soltani strapless dress with a tiered origami bodice.

Her second Ina Soltani dress was a bright orange silk chiffon ruffled one shoulder mini worn with strappy sandals

I knew she couldn’t go the whole night without wearing Georges Chakra.

She shimmered in the Spring 2009 Couture mini-dress covered with multi-coloured crystal gemstones and sequins.

As with any Chakra dress, the details are exquisite.

We’re not used to seeing Carrie in floral dresses, so it was refreshing to see her don a floral Tracy Reese Black Label dress, which was one of the best of the night.

A typical gold custom-made mini by Nicole Miller followed, with her last look being an adorable strapless peachy confection of pure loveliness by Randi Rahm.

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.
