Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Most Disappointing Award
Carrie Underwood is the other singer I look to for something special at Country Music Awards, but at the 2011 Academy Of Country Music Awards she failed me.

The blonde singer wore a purple Jean Fares Couture gown which does nothing for me or her.

The gown with embellished with jeweled pockets is gorgeous on the model, but falls flat Carrie as it’s too old fashioned for her.

This gown would look great on Paris Hilton or Victoria Silvstedt, but it’s not a look I favour for Carrie.

I don’t hate it, but I’m far from being impressed by this look.

Best Couture Award
The one person we can always rely on to add a touch of sparkle to the red carpet at a Country Music Awards show is Taylor Swift.

The Queen of embellishments wore an Elie Saab Couture Spring 2010 gown to the 2011 Academy Of Country Music Awards, which took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada yesterday.

Her pale yellow embroidered gown with floral appliqué is stunning. The colour is absolutely divine against her milky complexion.

It’s a gown worthy of a winner.

Va Va Voom Award
Brooklyn Decker brought an aura of sexiness to the red carpet at the 2011 Academy Of Country Music Awards, which took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada yesterday.

The actress wore a sexy nude Victoria Beckham Spring 2011 dress, which is very similar to the one Katherine Jenkins wore last week.

I love how this sleeveless obi seamed fitted dress hugs her perfect body in a way which is just not possible on the model.

I wish like Katherine she’s gone matchy matchy on her shoes choice. Colour aside, those Stella McCartney slingbacks look painful to walk in.

Apart from Decker’s dress, I love her hair.

Maybe she was inspired by her “Just Go With It” co-star Jennifer Aniston, or maybe she just wanted a shorter sassier new do for summer, but I such a great style and she’s totally working it.

Almost inspires me to go short.

Honorary Country Girl Award
The 2011 Academy Of Country Music Awards took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada yesterday.

Nicole Kidman arrived on the red carpet with her hubby Keith Urban wearing a L’Wren Scott Fall 2011 uber sexy dress with a side split.

The fitted python black dress reminded me of a green version Sarah Jessica Parker wore two years ago.

Nicole added a black fur bolero, Fred Leighton jewels and Manolo Blahnik kitten heels to complete her look.

Going back to the green version, I would have loved Nicole in that version.

Despite looking slightly uncomfortable on the red carpet, this is a great look for Nicole. I would’ve lost some of those jewels though, as they slightly over power her look.

This weekend was an amazing weekend for Tadashi Shoji as he dress many stars with his Spring 2010 collection.

Amber Riley was first up when she walked the carpet at the 8th Annual TV Land Awards on Saturday.

The “Glee” actress and singer wore an emerald green silk chiffon pleated one shoulder dress with frayed chiffon strap.

Her look was paired with gold strappy sandals.

Meghan Linsey also selected Tadashi Shoji to dress her for the 2010 Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday night.

The “Steel Magnolia” singer looked beautiful in a nude silk chiffon strapless gown with a pleated bodice.

I love her ruffled skirt and the cute black satin ribbon tied to her waist.

Miranda Lambert accepted her ‘Album of the Year Award’ at the 2010 Academy of Country Music Awards also wearing a Tadashi Shoji gown.

The blonde beauty looked like a Grecian goddess in a cream silk chiffon one shoulder draped bodice gown from the Spring 2010 collection.

It seems like Tadashi has a knack for dressing winners, as he also dressed Best Actress Oscar winner Mo’Nique.

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.
