2012 ACM Awards Fashion Recap

April 2, 2012 By:

Last night’s 47th Annual ACM Awards brought out country music’s best and brightest stars. From Taylor Swift to Carrie Underwood, and even Nicole Kidman, the ladies wowed in their red carpet gowns.

Carrie Underwood: Carrie Underwood is kind of the eternal prom queen. I’ve never NOT seen her in sparkles and last night was no different. Underwood wore a strapless silver gown by Abed Mahfouz with beading and a revealing leg slit.

Taylor Swift: Taylor Swift was definitely the belle of the ball, and by belle I mean, “best dressed” and by ball I mean, “some country awards show.” Taylor looked lovely and regal in an ivory and gold J Mendel gown with side cutouts. She wore her hair natural and I think might finally be graduating from knee-length party dresses! Yae! Fashion!

Kelly Clarkson: Since Kelly Clarkson is an honorary country music star, she attended the event to perform her hit duet with Jason Aldean, but that red dress wasn’t. Kelly did her best with a red ruched tube dress that I can only assume was purchased at Charlotte Russe. O well, her hair looked pretty.

LeAnn Rimes: LeAnn Rimes wore a Stella McCartney dress to the ACM Awards, because you know, she used to be a country star, before she was a twitter celebrity. Anyways, this one-shouldered dress featured a pattern on the front, side cutouts, and a mesh back. It was definitely signature sporty Stella McCartney, but I can’t tell if I hate it or lo-Oh, sorry, I just got distracted by her husband Eddie Cibrian’s face, what were we talking about?

Nicole Kidman: Nicole Kidman, STILL dutifully attending country music red carpets, wore a knee length LBD by L’Wren Scott with a cute mesh bust with built in collar. She paired the black dress with strappy red sandals.

Miranda Lambert: Whenever a celeb wears a gold gown to an awards show, they have to look amazing, otherwise they are just inviting “Miranda Lambert dresses like awards trophy!” type-comments. Anyways, this is happening here with this figure hugging gold gown by Randi Rahm.

Jennifer Nettles: Jennifer Nettles of country duo Sugarland was pretty in pink. This pink and sheer gown featured a confusing geometric pattern and a bright yellow belt around the waist. We could have done without the yellow, and maybe the dress would have been better on T-Swift?
