Kaiser already covered some of the fashion from last night’s ACM Awards, including Taylor Swift and Nicole Kidman, who both looked gorgeous and very well put together. Here we have country queens Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert, who both looked a little too “done,” in my opinion. First off is Carrie in strapless Abed Mahfouz couture. Her look is kind of amazing on one hand, but I’m getting a “prom” vibe from it and I feel like we’ve seen this look from her before. I just looked through some of her recent fashion, and Carrie is actually good at mixing it up. It’s kind of a general default look for the red carpet, which why it seems familiar. I love the sheer shirt though. This is one of the few dresses I’ve seen where a see through skirt actually works. This dress seems to be washing her out when coupled with her very light hair and pink lipstick.
Carrie performed “Good Girl” last night (video is here) and she was nominated for Female Artist, which ended up going to Miranda Lambert. Miranda also took home Album of the Year for “Four the Record.” The Boot points out that Miranda has won ACM awards for three out of four of her albums!
Miranda was in gold scaly formfitting Randi Rahm. I have mixed feelings about this dress. It looks like it’s shedding a little, but there’s something so bold and killer about it. Plus it goes perfectly with her coloring, hair and makeup.
As for the short, tight patchwork number that Miranda changed into for the press room later that night, it was just awful. She should have stuck with the gold dress. Holy cleavage!
Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland was in this pink lace and chiffon gown, which I actually like. Kaiser emailed me that she loves Nettles but finds her style to be off. I think this dress is fine on its own. The color is a little bright but it’s striking and the cutout pattern is so pretty. It’s the bright neon bedazzled belt that just ruins it for me. Nettles wore a similar mismatched neon green belt to an event last month, and a photo of that is below. Also, doesn’t she look a little like Kirsten Dunst?
