CMA Awards 2010-Best and Worst Dressed
Last night I tuned in to the 44th Annual Country Music Awards hosted by the fabulous duo, Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood. Country music has been apart of my life since I was a little girl, in large part because my Dad is a huge country music fan. Certain songs bring me back to the summer days my Dad and I would spend out in the garage together. I’d be sucking on my popsicle trying to reach the top drawer of his tool chest, and he’d be sawing away at a new project. My dad is an amazing craftsman and I swear when certain country songs by Garth Brooks or Tim McGraw come on, I can still smell the saw dust.
LeeAnn Rimes. Love the shoes, not the dress. Even though she has great legs, that deserve to be shown off, the dress looks cheap and thoughtless. The awards are meant to make a statement and unfortunately this dress didn’t do it for me.
Leighton Meester. She looks like she’s still in her Halloween costume as Jane of the Jungle, not coming out for awards night. The pattern of her dress and crazy hair are too much. There’s a fine line between going for a wild look and looking sloppy.
Little Big Town. The group would look fabulous if it wasn’t for that awful red velvet dress. The cut and drape makes her look a lot bigger than she actually is. I understand that velvet is in this fall, but I don’t think this is what the experts were talking about.
Gretchen Wilson. This ensemble is far too casual for the CMA Awards. If you looks closely you can tell it’s a sweater. Since when do you wear a knit sweater to the CMA’s?
Okay, so enough with the bad and the ugly. Lets get to the good because even though there were some bad wardrobe choices, there were also some fabulous ones.
Julianne Hough. Now this is a girl who knows how to make a statement. Absolutely stunning dress on her tiny figure.
Laura Bell Bundy. I absolutely love this dress. It’s so over the top and would definitely be my choice if I was attending an award show. The glitz accompanied by her skin tone, lip stick, and hair color exudes perfection.
Lady Antebellum. The trio looked stunning last night with matching bow tie tuxes for Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley. They were accented beautifully with Hillary Scott’s bold red gown. The dress accentuates her curves and makes her dark hair pop.
Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton. This gown was my favorite of Ms. soon to be Mrs. Lambert-or should I say Shelton? It’s flowy and accentuates the right curves. Although, the dress would be more flattering if it were strapless or a halter. This specific cut makes her arms appear larger than they are because they are pressed down by the strap. Regardless of their wardrobes, both singers had a fabulous night. As Brad Paisley said, “with the night Miranda and Blake are having, we should be expecting a baby in about nine months.”
Gwyneth Paltrow. At first, I wasn’t sure how I felt about this dress. Although, after I looked at it for a little while longer, it grew on me. The asymmetrical drape and cut-out of her dress evens out nicely on the opposite side with the flow of her blonde hair.
Carrie Underwood. I am a huge fan of hers. I absolutely loved her wardrobe choices last year, but this year, I just felt they were mediocre. They didn’t make me say, “wow” and I can recall wincing a couple of times. She pulls off this gown above very well, not many could wear that. And I love how she isn’t wearing any jewelry, the dress does it all.
Can’t wait for next year-have a great night!
