Miranda Lambert in Steven Khalil at the ACM Awards: country-music princess?

52nd Academy of Country Music Awards Arrivals

Here’s Part II of the fashion photos from the 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards, which were held in Las Vegas last night. You can see the list of ACM winners here. Miranda Lambert was a big nominee and a big winner at the ACMs. She walked the red carpet with her boyfriend Anderson East, and Miranda wore this Steven Khalil gown. Um… is it wrong to love this? I find Miranda’s style to be so hit-or-miss, but I think she hired a great stylist after her split from Blake Shelton, and that stylist has been doing great work. Like, this feels princess-y and bridal, and yet… I love it. It totally works. Miranda also made history last night: she’s the first-ever country music star to win Female Vocalist of the Year for eight consecutive years. This dress reflects that too: she’s literally a country music princess.

Real question: has Carrie Underwood ever been to an awards show and NOT worn some pageant-looking gown? Carrie wore this tulle-and-sparkles LaBourjoisie dress and… no, I’m not feeling this at all. Although give her some credit: she probably felt like “When in Vegas,” because this absolutely looks like a showgirl’s outfit.

Faith Hill wore Michael Kors. It’s not as glitzy as I would have expected, but I still like it. She looks like she’s going to a business luncheon. The color is gorgeous.

Hillary Scott in Proenza Schouler. Oooh, girl, NO!!! The color is great but this design is a total fail. And to be completely fair: this would be a fail on someone like Karlie Kloss too. The “ab window” feature on a dress needs to NOT be a thing.

    Hillary’s dress is awful. I don’t care what kind of body you have – it’s just not going to look good. Which is a shame, because I really like the print and the color.

    The day that Carrie stops wearing pageant gowns, is a day where I’m going to assume something is very very wrong. It’s her thing. She seems to be a sucker for it, so whatever. As long as she likes her gowns, I guess.

    I like Miranda’s dress too, Kaiser. There’s something really pretty about the white and gold.

    • Nancy says:

      Aww. I agree Hillary’s dress is a disaster, but I do love her voice. Carrie still looks like a homecoming queen, but that’s just her. Miranda? Looks like a wedding dress to me. After standing next to Blake, she looks kind of desperate and sad. No matter who she is with, or what she has said, she doesn’t look content with whomever this dude is. She wants Gwen’s guy. Shit happens.

    It’s perfect. I’m a huge Miranda Lambert fan and even though they split under their own terms and moved on. I don’t know how I could deal with the new relationship being so public and in your face all the time. Maybe I’m projecting since I was also separating from my husband at the time and he moved on with his hoe immediately.

    • Laura says:

      Me too. We had been separated for barely a month before my ex-husband moved on with his hoe. I guess karma caught up with them though because less than six months later he lost his high paying job and they had to dramatically downsize their lifestyle. She thinks she has won a prize but he’s an overweight, unintelligent, lying cheater who will do to her what he did to me. I always say “If you marry a man who cheats on his wife, you marry a man who cheats on his wife!”.

      Miranda is gorgeous, as is Carrie.

      • RebbyRose says:

        I never understood the women who sleep with married and expect to have a happy,healthy and normal relationship after he leaves his wife. Like if he deals with a unsatisfying relationship by cheating and bailing, how in the f-k can you trust him to work things out during the inevitable low points (that ALL couples go through). How can you expect him to not just go out and find a new woman and do the exact same thing? When a person cheats they don’t magically change when they’re with the new person. What ever flaw they had is still their and most likely its not even acknowledged by the cheater for them to be aware enough to attempt to fix/

    Tim is also totally doing it for me in this photo. He recently left his label to sign with a different label that would also sign Faith, so they could release a duets album and tour together. I think they had some early troubles with his drinking, but it seems they’ve settled down and really love each other. So, they make me squee.

    Miranda looks lovely. I don’t care for Carrie’s dress, but she always looks beautiful.

  4. QQ says:

    WOOF!!!! This is a quiet Scrolldown fug if I ever did see…

    These are.. Rough.. All Of them….. Miranda’s Styling/dress/LOL and Pic Chemistry with Curly Fries is just.. OOF! this dress is so poorly figured out from color/material/intention ( are we a princess gown or one of the Look into my soul and nipples decolletage thing?? is this a linnenny fabric??)

    Then Carrie Underwood with this.. I wanna be J-lo minus all the J-lo Situation… Comedic

    Faith Hill in my Ideal “meet em and F*ck em and Leave em” outfit.. is it for an award? Maybe not

    and This Last Sister… No … Honey NO!

    Miranda is wearing a pretty wedding dress.

    I like Hilary. I like the dress that she is wearing. I don’t think Hilary should be wearing the dress she is wearing to this event. It is too casual for this event.

    Carrie is as tacky as Jennifer Lopez, but Lopez pulls it off more convincingly because she has a lot of confidence bordering on arrogance. Carrie is the awe sucks girl looking for confidence in her clothes.

  6. Narak says:

    I don’t like any of their dresses. Miranda looks like she crawled out of a swimming pool and put on a wedding dress, Carrie’s looks like the lower half should tear-away and reveal figure skates and others look like they came from Reitman’s.

  7. susiecue says:

    Miranda’s gown looks good on her but her HAIR is giving me Monday RAGE

    • Nikki says:

      Thank you. I don’t think her styling is food AT ALL. Her hair is absolutely lame and limp.

  8. KBeth says:

    I like Miranda’s dress but it seems a bit much for the AMC’s. Her boyfriend looks like he’s about 13 years old.
    Hillary’s dress is awful, the color is great on her though. She’s really pretty but her style is always terrible.
    Carrie looks like her usual tacky, overdone self.
    I like Faith’s look, kind of an 80′s vibe with the wide belt.

  9. MelB says:

    Why is everyone so fake tanned?

  10. sauvage says:

    I would argue that eight consecutive wins make her a Country Music Queen, not Country Music Princess. (And I don’t know her music very well, so I’m not even a fan.) I’d also argue that her dress works perfectly for a queen, too.

  11. deevia says:

    Re: skin tone of Miranda and her beau – looks like two different racial groups: Snow White and Pumpkin Spice.

  12. Grant says:

    LAWD, I think Faith looks gorgeous. Rock on, Queen!

  13. Happy21 says:

    I don’t like any of them. They are too ball gownish, Oscar awardish for the ACMs. I feel like there should be something more country here…sigh…
