2022 ACM Honors

Kelsea Ballerini in Marc Bouwer 2022 ACM Honors

The 2022 Academy Of Country Music Honors was held at Ryman Auditorium on Wednesday (August 24) in Nashville, Tennessee.

If you’ve been here long enough, you remember the time when Country Music Awards ceremonies – fashion wise – were bad, then they all got Hollywood A-list stylists and there was a marked improvement, now feel like we’re back to the ‘meh’ days.

Kelsea Ballerini was the only exception, as she arrived on the red carpet wearing a white Marc Bouwer sequinned gown which is the same gown Shania Twain wore for the 1999 Grammys, on the night she won an award for her iconic song, ‘You’re Still the One.’

What made this moment even more special is when the women posed on the red carpet together.

When it comes to Shania Twain, she is on the protected list along with Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera.

I love how the animal print was clearly a nod to her other iconic song (aren’t they all iconic?) ‘That Don’t Impress Me Much.’

Avril Lavigne 2022 ACM Honors

Avril Lavigne isn’t on the ‘protect list,’ as she has always sat on the ‘it is what it is’ list.

Her style has never changed from the second she burst onto the scene, and at 37-years-old it’s not about to…and if I’m honest…I don’t want it to change. This style of look is identifiable and unique to her.

She wore a Ashton Michael leopard print look which also felt like a homage to Shania Twain.

Prada boots completed her look.

Miranda Lambert wore an orange Alex Perry suit which felt so out of place at the event, much like her husband Brendan McLoughlin who looked like he arrived on this red carpet straight from his job in the city.

I do like the coordination from Little Big Town ladies.

Kimberly Schlapman was giving me disco fever in her pink metallic Bronx and Banco dress styled with David Yurman jewels.

While Karen Fairchild’s Onalaja dress would’ve been more intriguing had the lining met the hemline (this has to be my biggest bug bear after obvious illusion necklines).

David Yurman jewelry and Gianni Bini sandals completed her look.

Tiera Kennedy clearly shops in the same Nashville boutiques as Kimberly Schlapman.

Both women nailed the look.  I’m getting Whitney Houston vibe on this occasion. Mostly because of the ‘I Wanna Dance with Somebody’ inspired tight curly hair.

Mickey Guyton wearing black velvet?  I think I need to adjust my glasses because I can’t believe what I am seeing.
