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).

"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!

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.
