Faith Hill in Chado Ralph Rucci at the ACM Awards: inappropriate or lovely?

Here are some more photos from the Academy of Country Music Awards, which aired last night on CBS. You can read about the winners here. Faith Hill attended the ACMs because Tim McGraw was performing with some other country stars – correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think Faith performed at all? Which is fine. I’m just trying to keep it straight. There are some photos of Faith where she looks somewhat normal, and then there are some pics where you can see all of the work that she’s had done. It’s not just Botox, but ‘Tox is definitely a co-conspirator. Anyway, she wore this Chado Ralph Rucci dress (which I thought was a gaucho jumpsuit at first). Look at that high slit. YIKES. Dear Faith, I do not need to see your ACM Beav.

Here’s Jewel in a Georges Chakra Couture pageant dress in a really bad color. This whole thing just looks so cheap! I think Jewel is really pretty but NO on this dress.

LL Cool J was there! I know, it’s weird. But the ACMs aired on CBS, and I think CBS just gets LL Cool J to cohost all of their events these days because he’s a big star on NCIS: LA.

Here’s Luke Bryan, who was a big winner last night.

Hunter Hayes (my mom love him) and Stevie Wonder. Stevie’s looking good!

And here’s Keith Urban, who was without Nicole Kidman. Shock. I don’t get why all the women were wearing evening gowns and so many of the dudes were wearing jeans. I think Keith is wearing lifts too.

    Her botoxed forehead is freaking me out. It’s sending one of her eyes off in a wonky direction. Not a good look.

    • Ella says:

      I know! I can’t work out how such an apparently subtle change can make someone look so different. Clearly, faces are meant to have some softness and mobility, or they end up looking weird. She looks like a cross between Faith Hill, LeAnn Rimes and the Cheshire Cat.

    • Grace says:

      Poor Faith. It is just so sad when a previously beautiful woman becomes so insecure as she ages that excess ‘work’ is done and completely age inappropriate clothing is worn. She looks like a drag queen contestant dressing up as Faith Hill.

  2. aims says:

    Faith definitely looks like she had some work done. Botox for sure, but not sure what else she had done.

    • Dena says:

      Yeah. I have always liked and respected Faith Hill and like them as a couple. But, I got to admit, the botox look is not a good look for her.

      • Apsutter says:

        She’s so beautiful, I wish she’d just age gracefully. If she gained even 5 lbs I bet it would fill out her neck and face more and she’d look great. Does anyone know if she has TMJ or anything like that because I don’t remember her having crooked teeth before so I’m wondering why she got braces.

    • Jen says:

      I think it’s less that she’s had work done and more that she’s way, WAY too skinny right now. The braces also change the geometry of her face, but there’s no way to avoid that, really.

  3. daisydoodle says:

    thanks faith, we all now know where babies literally come from!

    • Rachel says:

      Aside from the slit, that dress is just all kinds of cheap looking, ill fitted horrible.

      Hunter Hayes is adorable. He looks like a little hobbit, but he’s such a good singer and so sweet. I saw him in concert with Carrie Underwood a couple weeks ago, and he had laryngitis. He still tried to sing a few songs though. It was terrible, but he tried.

  4. Faye says:

    I think LL Cool J collaborated with a country star on an album — I forgot which, but I read an interview with the country star. He said that he and LL Cool J did one song together. Apparently they visited the Grand Ole Opry together, and LL Cool J said something like “Just think of how far we’ve come; back in the 60′s, there was segregation here, and now you and I are working together.” Not a country western fan, but that made me want to hear their song :) .

    • Jano1981 says:

      This is what I was scrolling looking for. Yes, you are right. The country artist is Tim McGraw collaborating with LL. I heard this randomly yesterday on the radio.

      • Apsutter says:

        Is that a new song because Tim had a song with Nelly 6 or 7 years ago too.

      • Faye says:

        I looked it up, and it was actually Brad Paisley. The song was called “The Accidental Racist.” They’re each coming out with new albums, and each album will contain a collaboration of theirs.

        I can’t remember the article, just that it left me feeling really warm-hearted. Neither man attempted to deny racism’s terrible history or pretend it is eradicated entirely, but they used their collaboration as an example of how far we’ve come, which I thought was really nice.

      • Kat says:

        I read the lyrics and found it offensive, myself. I mean, I laughed b/c it was so f-ing ridiculous but crooning about how bad white southerners have it (and I am a white southerner) is absurd.

  5. Melly says:

    She is so very thin. Her throat looks hollow and her eyes look a bit crazy.

  6. Dinah says:

    Urban is totally wearing Tommy Girl’s patented Xenu lifts.

    He has a douchey vibe.

    • Arock says:

      Yes on both- he always gives me the icks. its 2013, im sure there is a stylist who doesn’t use a flat iron or condone soul patches. Find them. Use them.

  7. TeresaKansas says:

    Faith looks terrible, she looks 70. Years back there were rumours of their cocaine use being common knowlegde with the locals. How do you get that haggard look? Also, kind of funny that Goop likes to hang with “dirty” celebs,like Brad Pitt. Also Tim Mcgraw seems a little queer to me.

    • andy says:

      “Also Tim Mcgraw seems a little queer to me.”

      I hope you meant odd.

    • Meredith says:

      I’ve heard the cocaine rumors before. And yes, when you hit your ’40′s, that kind of living really starts to show.

    • Sherry says:

      Here’s a story about a woman who used to live in a suburb of Nashville where most of the country music people live. Most of her neighbors were involved in the industry in one way or another. One of her neighbors’ husbands was a musician and his band went on tour with a hot male country music star and an up and coming drop dead gorgeous blonde female country music star. This was in the 90′s. The female was known throughout Nashvegas as someone who willingly slept her way through the music industry to make it. She doggedly pursued her male co-star on this tour even though she was engaged to someone else at the time. But compared to the macho country music star, her fiancee was very small potatoes. She was so intent on landing him, the stories made it seem she was a stalker. Anyway, one day, the gorgeous blonde “accidentally” got pregnant. The male star freaked out. Went on a rampage, asking anyone and everyone what he should do because this was not something he wanted. AT ALL!!! After talking with an older country music person about his past, he decided the only thing he could do is marry the woman.

      The two lived not so happily ever after, using coke and alcohol to make themselves feel better about their “perfect” life.

      The end.

      • aims says:

        Lmao, hmmmmmm. It’s been nothing but bliss and a few bad duets later.

      • Apsutter says:

        Oh man…I hope that’s not true.

      • andy says:

        Is that from a blind item? Or do you have insider info?

        You don’t hear much about the Nashville stars.

      • Sherry says:

        People are so sue happy these days, so I will say this … Allegedly, I lived in Franklin, TN up until last summer. Allegedly, one of my neighbor’s husbands plays steel guitar in a famous band (I will not name the band). Allegedly, all of the things in this story are absolutely true.

      • aims says:

        Allegedly, this proves my theory, that the most in your face couples, are the ones that are the most screwed up. Allegedly, of course ;)

      • snark says:

        THIS is the truth= Sherry’s right.

      • Happy21 says:

        Yup Yup YUP!

        I was a huge Tim fan in the mid-90′s and not so much a Faith Hill fan. She was too goody-goody for my rocker-country self and I didn’t like that. When they got together I was shocked and then all of a sudden she was knocked up. Your story above is EXACTLY the way in my mind I saw it go down.

      • holly hobby says:

        I just want to add that allegedly, I work with a woman who’s sister was allegedly engaged to Tim McGraw. One day she was in my office and Tim and Usher’s song come through the radio. She told me that she absolutely hates McGraw and the whole story came out how her sister was engaged to him (they hail from Louisiana and the family is pretty prominent. Their brother played in the NFL). They broke up when McGraw hooked up with Faith Hill.

        Yeah I believe the stories about her being ambitious. She started out as a receptionist at some record company before she married Dan Hill (of Dan Hill & Shonda from Ally McBeal song, Can’t We Try). Obviously she got a bigger fish in Tim McGraw.

      • Christin says:

        I realize a lot of people really like her, but the 1990s come to mind each time I see her. She married the Hill guy, plus she was engaged to a music producer when she went on tour with her now-husband as the lead act. Within months, marriage and baby number one. She has also bragged about their sex life, perfect family, etc., in various interviews. That always makes me skeptical. A pretty woman who seems pretty insecure at times.

      • Lulu.T.O. says:

        Well if he didn’t want it AT ALL he should’be kept it in his pants. smh

  8. andy says:

    Keith Urban and Justin Theroux need to hang out. It would be hipster heaven.

  9. Jayna says:

    Faith has lines all over her face but being thin it shows more than if she had a few pounds on her. She’s aging and faces change. Where’s the botox you’re talking about? Her eyes aren’t arched up from too much botox. She has smile lines.

    • MisJes says:

      Her forehead is frozen tight, as are her eyes. She has that “surprised” look that comes with Botox. The only part of her face with “smile lines” is her mouth, which is pretty telling on it’s own.

    • Jel says:

      ITA… She has a few age appropriate lines. I’m sure there is some Botox going on here and there but it seems conservative. I think she looks great , albeit a bit too thin.

  10. lucy2 says:

    Faith hitting the botox hard makes me sad. She’s a naturally beautiful woman, but has looked a bit odd the past few years.

  11. Apsutter says:

    Omg…where the hell has Jewel been?!? Do you guys remember when she came back as a pop singer around 2004ish and she had that “Intuition” song and it was in the razor commercials? She also had an absolutely lovely Christmas album around the same time with a holiday version of “Hands” which I then remember Michelle Kwan skating to. Ohh…memories.

    • andy says:

      Jewel has been trying to break into acting. She will be playing June Carter Cash in an upcoming film.

    • Belle says:

      I’m a huge fan of Jewel’s older music, HUGE! Not sure about the acting thing, but I think she has enjoyed time away with her bull rider hubby, Ty Murray and their baby boy. I believe they have a ranch in Texas.

    • Scarlet Vixen says:

      I was a HUGE Jewel fan when her first couple albums came out! Like, spend lots of money (I didn’t have because I was a broke college student) on bootleg cds then made mixed tapes of them, drive 6hrs 1-way to see her in concert, and tried to learn guitar so I could play her songs HUGE. Then she did that pop album and I couldn’t shake the feeling that she was selling out. :-( She’s done a couple country albums, a couple children’s music albums (which are pretty good–may 2yr old daughter likes to listen to them during nap time), and has been spending time on her huge ranch with her husband and baby.

  12. It'sJustBlanche says:

    I always thought Faith Hill took herself way too seriously and I’m not a fan by any means, but she looks good here. He needs to ditch the hat.

  13. Cordelia says:

    Why did she decide to wear braces? Her teeth were fine before.

    • jensational says:

      @Cordelia – ??? Her teeth are obviously not fine, otherwise I seriously doubt her dentist would have made her get braces again. She gave an interview not long ago that she had to get braces again because she didn’t wear her retainer as she was supposed to have in her earlier years. Her teeth started moving around and gapping again so she had to have them worked on. Good thing she can afford to do it.

      • Cordelia says:

        See, what I meant to say is, her teeth were straight before.. and they were. And as for the details you just outlined, clearly I don’t read many of her interviews.

        Sorry my ignorance frustrated you so.

      • Apsutter says:

        Yikes…at that point I think I would have just had my dentist cap my teeth and be done with it. Braces twice? No thank you

  14. eileen says:

    I don’t like FH’s dress.
    Jewel’s is pretty-it looks good on her.
    Luke Bryan is hot as hell.

    • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

      Hah! I will say this until I am blue in the keyboard, but Luke Bryan is the reason that everytime there is a Cumber/Hiddles/McAvoy/Chems post, I’m like “meh, I don’t see the fuss”. For reals.

  15. Ash says:

    With all the advances in orthodontia these days (and all her money) you’d think she would choose something like Invisalign. It’s not like her teeth we SO jacked up to begin with. I remember seeing her back in November at the CMAs I think and thinking “WTF? Does she have braces?!”

  16. holly hobby says:

    Boy she’s starting to look really plastic. Such a shame because she was flawless before the unneeded work.

  17. Dawn says:

    Jewel looks great. But what the heck happened to Faith Hill? I used to think she was so cute and now she just looks too skinny and hard.

  18. Kelly says:

    Faith looks like a freak. And I wish she’d do something with her own career instead of tagging along with her husband’s.

  19. Tania says:

    Faith looks way too thin. Is she wearing coloured contacts or something? Her eyes look like they’re made out of glass. Very weird.
    I’m quite sure there was a blind in the past about her not being able to get off cocaine while pregnant with one of their girls…. Looks like Keith stole Tom Cruise’s shoes.

  20. Joanna says:

    is it just me or weren’t a lot of people saying how old and mannish faith looked on the last post about her? now everyone is saying she looked plastic. she prob went and got some stuff done b/c she was hurt by all the mean remarks about how old she looked. you can’t win when you’re a woman and aging, either you look old or you look plastic b/c you did something to keep from looking old. make up your mind people. if you don’t want people to look plastic, let them grow old in peace.

  21. Kat says:

    I bet she’d be so drop-dead gorgeous still if she let herself age gracefully. I hate when these beautiful women like Megan Fox screw their faces up like this – but heck, I can be really insecure too so I can’t imagine having a job where millions of people judge your appearance every day and it affects what projects you can get. I wouldn’t want to be famous. But I wouldn’t mind the money.

  22. Nibbi says:

    oh crap, she was so beautiful before :(

    i’d really rather just watch people age normally, or at best, “gracefully,” than watch them jack themselves up with plastic so they end up looking freaky and unnatural. it’s disturbing.
