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?

Congrats go to Taylor Swift for winning her second Entertainer of the Year trophy at last night’s Country Music Awards. But who should win our kudos for being the most spectacularly dressed at the Nashville ceremony? Um, Miss Piggy, obvs. The porcine beauty sported a dangerously short, shimmery champagne-colored dress onstage that we’re sure made Kermit wonder if he’s a mammal after all.
What really popped out last night (besides Kermit’s eyes), was the crazy variety of gowns, short, long, poofy and totally wacko. Taylor’s train must have spanned the entire length of the red carpet. Erin Andrews did Barbie proud in a short hot-pink number. Laura Bell Bundy‘s completely open royal-blue skirt revealed a beaded beige bodysuit — a look that was crazy but surprisingly flattering on her. Susie Brown of the JaneDear Girls accessorized her pink and purple ruffles with a cupcake purse. Natasha Bedingfield donned an entire carpet to perform. Martina McBride rebelled and wore pants. And of course, host Carrie Underwood embraced every single trend with her many gown changes throughout the night.
Flip through these many photos and decide for yourself if Miss Piggy had any rivals in the fashion department.
