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.

42nd Annual CMA Awards Red Carpet

Taylor Swift, for me, was the Best Dressed at this event. LOVE it, Love it, adore it, want it.

Her sequin and crystal embellished Kaufman Franco gown is just amazing. Much improved from Monday’s Glamour Awards.

I loved the Jil Sander Spring 2009 collection which was full of fringed ensembles draped over stretch bodysuits.

I would not have thought Nicole Kidman would pick something from this collection, but as usual she wears it with both style and grace.

Reese Witherspoon is usually a devotee of Nina Ricci, but last night chose to wear this exquisite Marchsea Spring 2009 asymmetric gown.

The lace cut-out details adds a dramatic effect to the gown, and the bold red lips adds to the overall vampy seductive look.

Kellie Pickler sparkled in an off-the-shoulder silver beaded Zuhair Murad gown with a ruched bodice, which gives her a Jessica Rabbit silhouette. The dress also had a draped back.

Her stunning jewels were from Swarovski.

I am not at all crazy about Carrie Underwood’s yellow Roberto Cavalli gown. I am not sure if it is the colour or the dress itself, but something is not quite right.

The completed her look with a stunning gold Nancy Gonzalez clutch.

Miley Cyrus opted for colour over sparkle, wearing a white Roberto Cavalli halter neck gown with a colourful floral detail on the base of her gown, and black sequin detail on the waist and neckline.

Jewel’s yale blue halter Roberto Cavalli gown was embellished with a single gold detail on the empire waist. I love that she wore her wavy hair back in a loose bun.

She completes her look with multiple bracelets on both her arms and a gold box clutch.

Julianne Hough is perfect pink perfection.

Her gown was by Angel Sanchez and she sparkled with Daniel Swarovski bracelets and clutch.

Miranda Lambert wears many gold necklaces, to bring some life to her plain blue strapless satin gown.

Shania Twain opted for a black mini, with Giuseppe Zanotti floral heels, which are beautiful, but it’s her clutch which stands out for me. ♥

Michelle Branch goes was too casual for this event for my liking.
