The Night's Hottest Star Style
Old Hollywood screen siren or country queen? 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).
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.
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.
"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.
"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!
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!).
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).
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.
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!
The Band Perry frontwoman also opts for a black gown with illusion detailing, accessorized with a gold envelope clutch and her signature blonde waves.
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.
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.
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.
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.
