The Not-So Stylin’ List For The CMA Awards, Better Luck Next Time, Ladies!

Worst-dressed List At The CMA Awards

There were an equal amount of sparkles on this not-so-stylish list as they were on the best-dressed list at the CMA Awards in Nashville, Tennessee last night. But it’s alright, there’s always next time. We do admit that hostess of the evening, Carrie Underwood, being on up here is a bit of a surprise considering she’s normally so perfectly (if no predictably dressed.) But something doesn’t feel right with this Reem Acra dress. Perhaps it’s because it looks like there’s poison ivy creeping up her bodice? The detailing doesn’t work at all. We do love the Swarovski clutch and that massive Jonathan Arndt ring, though. Kimberly Williams-Paisley wasn’t much of a fight for us, as the slit combined with the super shiny fabric on her metallic dress (which matched her shoes) didn’t do it for us the second we saw her pictures. We love Miranda Lambert and covet her emerald and gold Sutra earrings. But the beige Maria Lucia Hohan dress looked completely flat against her coloring and besides that, the bodice needs a good yank up. Faith Hill so stunning as well, which is why we don’t understand why she would pick a Roland Mouret gown that is such a snore on her? The fit isn’t particularly great either. We get what Lucy Hale was trying to achieve here with her Moschino gown: grown-up vintage glamor with a hint of a contemporary touch. So, we do love the hair and the makeup and all the accessories — the Casadei shoes, the Kotur purse, the Nikki Baker earrings and House of Lavande ring. But the black sequined embellishment just looks a bit haphazard on her, so we’re not digging it as much as we’d like to. But that doesn’t mean you don’t? Let us know what your thoughts are!

Sparkles Proliferate On The CMA Awards Best-Dressed List (Yes, Taylor Swift Is On It)

Best-Dressed At The 46th Annual CMA Awards

So much sparkle at the CMA Awards last night! The only person on this best-dressed list who broke the trend was Jennifer Nettles who was beautiful and baby-bumpin’ in a deep, chocolate brown column. Simple, elegant and so very flattering. Kellie Pickler rocked her shaved head in a pale blue flowing Pamella Roland gown, which had a princess train. She paired it with matching and Tacori earrings. We like the fact the fact that the hair is so punk and the gown is so feminine. Adds a nice contrast! Hayden Panettiere — appropriately starring in Nashville — wore a stunning seafoam green Charleston frock by Georges Chakra Couture water and paired it off with a sparkling emerald strappy heels and clutch combination. Unusual choice, but so eye-catching! Martina McBride wore a bronze Grecian overlay gown secured at the waist by a thin gold belt. It complemented her coloring beautifully.  Last, but not least, was Taylor Swift who picked a very pretty Jenny Packham gown, which had red sequined flower embellishment scattered all over it, with Jimmy Choos and Neil Lane jewels. Very Taylor! But who was your very best-dressed on this short but sweet list?
