Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

Worst Couture Award
Like Carrie Underwood, Julianne Hough also wore Basil Soda to the 2010 Academy of Country Music Awards which was held last night in Nevada.

The TV star opted for a Basil Soda Spring 2009 Couture white gown, with a silver folded detail on the bodice.

The gown itself is too bridal for my liking and that silver detail is quite ugly and extremely distracting.

Had it been part of the gown rather than attached to the gown it would have looked better.

Most Sexy Award
Kristen Bell looked incredibly sexy as she arrived at the 2010 Academy of Country Music Awards in Nevada tonight.

The “When in Rome” actress opted for a sexy nude Hervé Léger by Max Azria chevron illusion mini dress from the Spring 2010.

The dress with folded banding all over is sexy, without being tacky.

What may look like nude panels is actually bronze glitter decorating the neckline and the front of her dress.

She paired her dress with nude Brian Atwood Katie Lee sandals and a bronze clutch.

I’m head-to-toe in love with this look as her hair and make-up are equally stunning.

Most Disappointing Award
Nicole Kidman was the plus one to her hubby Keith Urban at the 2010 Academy of Country Music Awards tonight in Nevada.

I really miss the days when Nicole used to take my breath away and give me goosebumps on my goosebumps wearing a stunning red Balenciaga gown, or a white tiered Chanel Couture gown.

I always have my fingers crossed that Nicole will return to those glorious red carpet moments, but here were have another look that doesn’t work for me.

The actress wore a black L’Wren Scott Fall 2010 mini tuxedo dress with what looks like a piano keyboard on the front of her dress.

I can really picture someone like Selma Blair working this look, but it falls flat on Nicole.

This look requires a lot more personality.

I understand that L’Wren Scott is Nicole’s stylist, but I wish she’d give her a wider range of designers to wear on the red carpet.

Nicole’s look was paired with the same leather cut-out booties from the runway.

Do you love it or hate it?

I much preferred her look from last years event.

Best Dressed Award
When Jennifer Aniston wore a pink Christian Lacroix Couture dress it was a historic moment.

Taylor Swift created another epic moment at the 2010 Academy of Country Music Awards tonight, by walking the red carpet without a single sequin nor jewel embellishment on her gown.

Like Carrie Underwood, Taylor is up for many award tonight. In fact they go head-to-head in many categories.

The teen singing sensation looked divine floating down the red carpet wearing a lavender Marchesa Spring 2010 gown.

This gown is breath-taking from the embroidered details to the long flowing train.

Taylor’s gown was slightly modified on the bodice, as the runway version has more sheer illusions. Also skirt has been lined with a contrasting lilac layer.

Many of you have been praying for a change in Taylor’s red carpet looks, and there you have it.

See Taylor, you don’t need embellishments to sparkle.

A worthy BDOTW contender.

Best Couture Award
Two things are guaranteed at a Country Music event.

1. Carrie Underwood will attend.
2. Carrie Underwood will wear a Lebanese designer.

The Country singer who is up for many awards at the 2010 Academy of Country Music Awards tonight, looked stunning as she walked the red carpet.

I adore her buttercup Basil Soda Spring 2010 Couture cocktail dress.

I love the contrast between the top and the bottom half.

The top has sleek satin layers which is held together with an embellished strap to create a ruffled effect on her shoulder.

The skirt has a swirling pattern all over as it drapes from the waist.

Her look was paired with moss green Rene Caovilla ankle strap heels and a black studded Swarovski clutch.

Carrie would have got a 10 out of 10 for this look had it not been for the clutch.

I really dislike it because it doesn’t work with the rest of her look.
