2021 CMA Awards Red Carpet Roundup

2021 CMA Awards

Here is a roundup from the 2021 CMA Awards held at the Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday (November 10) in Nashville, Tennessee.

When it comes to Carrie Underwood in this tinsel embellished gold and silver one-shoulder Jean-Louis Sabaji dress, I am truly, truly, truly, truly at a loss for words.

Like what is this? Why? On that planet?

Who is your stylist? And why don’t they like you?

I couldn’t pick single redeeming aspect, and I always try to do that when it comes to red carpet looks.

Fabergé rings completed her look.

Ingrid Andress’ love for suiting continued at this event with this Dsquared² Fall 2021 look which stood out for the contrasting pink lapels.

The leopard print sandals were a bit of a head scratcher, but I love how she commits to a look from head-to-toe.

Katy Perry wore a beautiful brown leather Vivienne Westwood dress, but this overall look was missing her usual pizzazz.

Mickey Guyton’s Safiyaa dress was one good looks at this event. 

The sweet nature of this embellished dress perfectly suited her style.

Usually this is the part of the post where I should be moaning about a black dress at this event. 

But there were so many bad looks on this red carpet, that I welcomed this Versace Fall 2021 dress on Miranda Lambert, which was styled with a pink Tyler Ellis clutch.

This is a good look for Miranda.  Simple and chic.

I would really like to know the thought process behind Gabby Barrett’s custom Melique Street dress.

I’ll file it into the Transformer chic file for now.

You may remember that Katy Perry wore this same designer for the American Idol finale back in May.

Karen Fairchild proves that black dresses at this event were the way to go this year, as the singer looked elegant in her Saint Laurent embellished dress styled with Tom Ford shoes.

Kimberly Schlapman is known for being the yang to Karen’s ying style-wise, but this Christian Pellizzari dress is particularly bad.

Maddie in David Koma and Tae in Carolina Herrera have me wondering what I did with my Treat or Treat basket of candy.

I can see where this long line white look was going, but I don’t think Maren Morris quite has the height or the stature to really make it work.

Platforms, or a more tailored fit, and she would have nailed this.
