OK, I admit, even thought I am a Texas girl, I do not know much about country music...... however, I usually know what to expect from a CMA Awards night, and that is: anything goes. The sparklier, brighter and shorter......the better. Having said that, I was a little shocked how muted the gowns seemed to be, and wished that there were some more bright colors to celebrate the evening. As far as styles go, there was a bit of everything on the red carpet, and let's just agree that it was interesting.
Here are a few of the looks from co-host, Carrie Underwood.
Underwood has never been one to hide from the spotlight, or be afraid to try new looks...but with gams like those, a sleek mini dress, killer heels and big "Texas" hair should be her go-to look.
Now, who can forget the image of this beauty on her wedding day?? She looked STUNNING in her textured ball gown, and the rosy pink sash was a perfect addition.
Miranda Lambert is another recent bride that we will not soon forget. The country themed wedding was precious.... from her mama's wedding gown to her cowboy boots. Lambert did manage to work in an adorable wardrobe change, and mismatched bridesmaids dresses in true celebrity trend-setting fashion.
Here is her look from the CMAs....just as shiny and smiley as ever!
I love these two looks from last night. The sheer lace embroidery at the neckline is such a timeless and classic detail...I love that it is resurfacing in fashion right now. This ultra feminine touch adds softness and frames the face beautifully.
Here is a gown from Pronovias that proves how gorgeous this look can be!
I have gathered a varied assortment of looks from the CMAs last night, and I have to say... kudos to Erin Andrews for givin' a "yee-haw" in the form of a pink sparkly number to liven up this crowd.
Now for my fav.
Shocking.... it looks like a wedding gown, and I LOVE IT. Taylor Swift took a break from her usual cutesy dress wardrobe and went with this stunner. The fluid line and asymmetric layered hem add texture and interest to this fitted gown, and the deconstructed handkerchief detail is right on point with this innovative trend.
Jim Hjelm # 8151 shares this similar style, and Kendra Scott Sona earrings would complete the look quite nicely.
