The nine-time (!) nominee skips the sequins and cutouts (which she's probably saving for one of her other five outfits) for a goddess-like blush Bibhu Mohapatra gown (worn with tons of sparkles, including on her Emm Kuo clutch, retro waves and a bold red lip). 02 of 15 CARRIE UNDERWOOD Larry Busacca/Getty The CMA co-host brings her baby bump (it's under there somewhere, we promise!) to the carpet in a super-sparkly golden Lorena Sarbu design with a high-low hem. 03 of 15 NICOLE KIDMAN Larry Busacca/Getty In a rare boho style moment, the actress (playing plus-one for hubby Keith Urban) selects a white sheer dress with a floral pattern, plus relaxed beachy waves. 04 of 15 KACEY MUSGRAVES Larry Busacca/Getty "It's full of secrets," the nominee says of her truly enormous bouffant. As for the dress? She went for something a bit more low-key via a blush Oscar de la Renta column with an illusion neckline. 05 of 15 LUCY HALE Larry Busacca/Getty "I'm blending in with the red carpet tonight. I'm like a floating head. It's like, 'Where's Lucy?'" the Pretty Little Liars star and country singer jokes of her bold-hued Romona Keveza gown, featuring a cutout back and black belt. And Lucy, if you're reading this on your phone from your seat, we're loving the haircut! 06 of 15 FAITH HILL Larry Busacca/Getty Kacey Musgraves's bouffant wasn't the only major hair moment of the night! Faith debuts a new pixie cut, which was the perfect punctuation to her beaded and bow-topped black Naeem Khan gown and cat-eye liner. 07 of 15 JENNIFER NETTLES Larry Busacca/Getty On a night when many of her peers went sheer, sparkly and sexy, the Sugarland star opts instead for a classic black Christian Siriano ballgown with just a few embellishments (most notably: pockets!). 08 of 15 HILLARY SCOTT Larry Busacca/Getty The new mom is proud to showcase her post-baby body, wearing a second-skin black gown that plays up her décolletage, plus some fierce gilded accents (like that Michael John jewelry). 09 of 15 LILY ALDRIDGE Evan Agostini/Invision/AP The supermodel is giving us Priscilla Presley vibes (that hair! that eyeliner!) in her long black Calvin Klein Collection gown complete with sheer sleeves and plenty of body-baring sheer panels. 10 of 15 CONNIE BRITTON Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic She plays a country superstar on Nashville – and she has the hair of a country star in real life. Connie brings us one of the few mini moments of the night in a green beaded Naeem Khan dress, with (say it with us now) an illusion neckline! 11 of 15 KIMBERLY PERRY Larry Busacca/Getty The Band Perry frontwoman also opts for a black gown with illusion detailing, accessorized with a gold envelope clutch and her signature blonde waves. 12 of 15 JANA KRAMER Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic The star says she felt like "a little princess in a fairy tale" in her romantic strapless Badgley Mischka gown, plus some dramatic Dionea Orcini earrings. "I still believe in fairy tales," she adds. 13 of 15 KELLIE PICKLER Larry Busacca/Getty How does one move in a gown like this? Very carefully. The singer proves she has a PhD in skin-baring in her sheer-paneled navy gown, accessorized with a Swarovski clutch, Tacori diamonds, side-slicked pixie and blue eye makeup. 14 of 15 KIMBERLY WILLIAMS-PAISLEY Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic She's on hand to support her CMA host husband Brad Paisley, but the former Nashville star steals the show in a navy lace Romona Keveza design, plus a matching statement necklace and earrings. 15 of 15 MEGHAN TRAINOR Larry Busacca/Getty What's the "All About That Bass" singer doing at a country show, you may ask? Performing with Miranda Lambert, of course! She hits the carpet for her CMA red carpet debut in a blue ML Monique Lhuillier dress and Aldo shoes.
