Billy Ray Cyrus’s fancy-pants wiglet was the best part of the CMT Awards

The CMT Awards were held last night in Nashville, and I really couldn’t care less. Sorry, country music peeps! I think Luke Bryan is hot but that’s about it. You can see the list of CMT winners here. I’m just going to be covering a handful of photos from the show. Let’s start with this amazing new look from Billy Ray Cyrus. Billy Ray attended the CMTs with his daughter Brandi, who looks so much like vintage Miley I had to do a double-take. Billy Ray was also in the company of the most glorious wiglet in all the land. SHUT IT DOWN, FOLKS. Everybody can go home. We have seen the best wiglet of all time. The Duchess of Cambridge will be positively green with envy when she sees this.



Here’s Nicole Kidman in a Michael Kors dress with car-wash pleats. I actually like this a lot on Nicole, mostly because it feels like a cleaner style than her usual country-music-show attire. She veers too often to lacy, doily-esque dress, and this is a nice change of pace.



Carrie Underwood wore Michael D. with jewelry by Maxior and Noudar and heels by Jimmy Choo. I like this on her too. Carrie’s default style is usually too bridal or bridesmaid-y, and it’s nice to see her in something seasonably appropriate and truly pretty without being cloying.



And Jamie Lynn Spears was there – Jamie Lynn has “gone country” in a big way, and I hope for the best for her. I think she probably has a more autonomous life than her big sister ever will.

    That’s how my mom wore her hair in the 80s…

    You think Luke Bryan is hot? Kaiser, I expected more of you.

    Carrie looks so very tacky. Like Cavalli tacky.
    Nicole looks bad. At least her usual style is interesting.
    Billy Ray, I have no words. His daughter should lay off the spray tan, but other than that she’s very pretty.

    • Kaiser says:

      Don’t judge me! Luke is seriously my type: tall, dark hair and light eyes. Plus he has a nice smile.

      • Locke Lamora says:

        Fine, I won’t judge you. I can see why he would be handsome, but he just has fratboy douche written all over his face.

      • lucy2 says:

        That’s totally my type too (I feel shame every time I think Paul Ryan would be cute if he weren’t himself). Don’t know Luke Bryan but looked up photos, I can see it with him, but I also see the douche face LL is talking about.

      • Jenny says:

        All I see in some of Luke Bryan’s pics is Chandler Bing made a baby with Adam Sandler.

    • doofus says:

      Carrie looks to me like she did something t her face…

      maybe just makeup/contouring but her face looks slightly different.

      • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

        Her make up is atrocious, maybe that’s it?

      • Myrna says:

        Carrie def did something to her face.
        Don’t know why she would…she’s lovely and young.
        No need at all!

        I can’t with that wiglet – WTF?

        Sorry, but Brandy Cyrus looks like she’s a drinker.
        Can that be?

      • Happy21 says:

        So glad it wasn’t just me. I saw her and thought, ‘NO WAY!’ but then kept going and saw that someone else saw it to, scrolled back up and yep there is something going on there. Hopefully it’s just bad make up.

      • Snowflake says:

        Yes I can’t figure out what it is.

    • Chaucer says:

      Carrie is giving me first trimester vibes. The posture, the face…she looks like she wants to lay down and take a long nap.

      • Kitkatk8 says:

        Yeah! I got the pregnant vibe too! That dress is so busy it would easily conceal a tiny bump. Her face looks different as well….

  3. OriginallyBlue says:

    Omg. That is the greatest thing ever. Holy sh*t.

  4. Jenns says:

    Is he serious with that hair? Or is this a thing. I’m not up-to-date on my Billy Ray gossip.

  5. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Calling Hair Police…come in, please…😱

    Carrie looks really pretty.

    • Who ARE these people? says:

      She does. Just needed to stitch the leg slit down a little lower. Why does this keep happening?

      • Who ARE these people? says:

        On closer inspection (why ??? why????) there seems to be a tiny triangle of gauzy fabric. Maybe a last minute addition? Why don’t they just stitch the slit up instead? Ah well. I will never wear be in any position to be wearing a long gown with a leg slit, so why do I care.

  6. Brittney B. says:

    Is Jamie wearing a Nicotine patch?

  7. TG says:

    99% positive I just scrolled thru a bunch of new Madame Toussaud figures.

  8. AnnieRUOk says:

    Carrie looks amazing. That dress suggests personality and style

  9. Zapp Brannigan says:

    This thing is so glorious I fell to my knees in reverence. I just cannot look away, incidentally it reminds me of the way my sister-in-law wore her hair from about 1987 to far too late into the 1990’s.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Yeah, it looks like every bad picture from a New Jersey high school yearbook in the eighties. My husband (from NJ) used to call girls who wore their hair that way “Domers.”

    • lucy2 says:

      Do you too find yourself staring straight into the middle of it, like some sort of vortex to hell?

      As a Jersey girl I can attest to the late 80s/early 90s hair. I think I finally quit it around 91/92, but there is photographic evidence.

    • PunkyMomma says:

      Michael Bolton must be seriously green with envy.

  10. D says:

    Is Keith Urban wearing lifts?

    • Triple Cardinal says:

      Forget Keith’s lifts. What’s going on with his clothes? The tears in the jeans and the weird coloring of his shirt. He’s dressing like a teen. I guess he’s dressing for his new audience.

      • KBeth says:

        Kieth has always looked like a tranny to me, ick.
        Whoever said Luke Bryan = frat boy douche was spot on, he’s such a goober & that accent…gross.
        Why does Carrie always look so darn tacky? Her face is just lovely, fantastic figure but the heavy make up and awful clothes do nothing for her.
        Billy Ray’s wiglet, there are no words.
        Kidman looks pretty.

  11. Becki says:

    Is he serious with that hair?! Craziness. I like how flowy Carrie’s dress is, but girl needs to show her legs off! She’s got amazing legs. I’m rooting for Jamie Lynn! I hope she does well in life 🙂

  12. Green Is Good says:

    That wig needs its own Cult. It’s truly mind-blowingly HORRID.

  13. HK9 says:

    He cannot be serious with that hair. But yet, I see he is and there’s a certain badassery in that which I admire.

  14. Shelby says:

    I love Carrie Underwoods dress, I love the pattern and the flowy-ness

  15. Insomniac says:

    He wasn’t wearing it like that as a joke? Wow.

    • Net says:

      You should see that thing in motion! I was like WHOA..

      I would have not let my husband out of the house. We would have first fought about the obnoxious laughter and pointing of course.

  16. Rose says:

    Ha ha. Carrie and hubby look like Ken and Barbie in that first pic. The dress. Their hair and bleached teeth. And holding their arms slightly out from their bodies, LOL, they look like action figures.

  17. Christin says:

    Well, they look thrilled to be there. Interesting choice of hairstyle.

    Brandi and Miley are half-sisters. Both resemble their mother.

  18. mrspanda says:

    That wiglet looks like it could jump off his head and scurry under a bush. Amazing!

  19. Suzy from Ontario says:

    Billy Ray… are you serious? I’m embarassed for you! And poor Nicole…she used to be so gorgeous and she’s botoxed and fillered and who knows what else to herself to the point that she looks terrible. Such a shame!

  20. Jenny says:

    I guess this is what happened to John Travolta’s missing hair…

  21. Pandy says:

    The Bay City Rollers called. Woody wants his hair back.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      Wiping coffee off computer now, thanks much for that blast from the past!!!😂😂😂

  22. Margo S. says:

    Billy Ray what the hell. That is insane. Why dye your hair AND beard brown?! Dudes who do that always think they look so good. They say “my partner loves it!” You’re partner is lying.

  23. Kimna says:

    Like Peggy Bundys hair in Married w Children! Amazing!

  24. meme says:

    whole lotta fug going on here. Billy Ray looks RIDICULOUS and WTF is he daughter wearing? Those shoes!!!!!! Keith Urban needs to lose the orangey tan and Nicole needs to leave her face alone.

  25. Thais says:

    Is he wearing a Bumpit? Wowz, that’s a look.

  26. lucy2 says:

    I can’t tell what’s the worst part. The volume, the shape, the color, the texture…

  27. mary s says:

    That is Miley’s sister? How old can she be? Am I the only one who thinks she looks like a thirty year old woman? Is it just a bad photo?
    I like Carrie’s dress except for two things: first, it looks like it’s wearing her, and second is that strange modesty (?) bit at the top of the slit.

    • Christin says:

      She IS almost 30.

      Miley’s family tree has several branches (both parents had children by others).

      • lucy2 says:

        OK whew! I assumed that was one of her younger siblings and thought…wow.

      • Christin says:

        Their family tree is confusing, but a 2013 buzzfeed ‘Guide to the Cyrus Family’ breaks it down via photos and snark-laced factoids. Brandi is described as the ‘forgotten’ one.

        Hilly Ray is described as having hair frosting as a hobby, along with hair spiking. (I mistyped his first name, but it fits, so I am not correcting — LOL).

    • Larelyn says:

      I first mistook Brandi for Lindsay Lohan for a bit… not a good look to emulate.

  28. Lisa says:

    Al Pacino’s younger brother.

  29. Penelope says:

    Jamie’s outfit does nothing for her. Love Carrie’s dress but are her Spanx showing?

  30. Adele Dazeem says:

    Hey Billy Ray? The Yorkshire Ripper called. He wants his look back.

  31. Snowflake says:

    Man he needs someone to update his look. I think he’s good-looking, I had a crush on him in the achy break heart days. But his 80s style needs to go

  32. Erica_V says:

    If you had told me that was Miley in drag I would’ve bet money on it. WOW

  33. Justjj says:

    Is Carrie’s face different? Her dress to me looks like a suburb of Miami prep school prom dress, and yeah I think her Spanx are peeking out a little. I like the top of Nicole’s dress. It will be interesting to see how the Duchess of Cambridge steps up her wiglet game now after this official challenge… That wiglet is everything hair metal wishes it could be, deep fried in the glory of the Lord, illuminating every Margaritaville on earth with a glow only matched by a Kincaid collectors plate on QVC. Your move, Kate.

  34. tealily says:

    The proportions of Nicole’s dress are throwing me off, car wash pleats aside. Like, the neckline is too low for the length of the sleeve? Or something?

  35. Luciana says:

    Kidman’s extensions look like Gwyneth Paltrow’s fried hair.

  36. Reece says:

    Laughing…can’t…breathe…laughing…*coughs*…still laughing…*dies*

  37. Tara says:

    Oh… He was wearing that… not as a joke?
