Red Carpet Round-Up: The ACM’s Best Dressed

ACM_Awards_BlogFeatured


Las Vegas went a little bit country this past weekend as Nashville’s biggest stars hit town to celebrate the Academy of Country Music Awards. Hosted by The Voice’s Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan, the evening was nothing short of spectacular complete with stand-out performances, surprise winners and stunning fashion. The red carpet showcased some of spring’s hottest trends including black and white, floral details and shades of blue. But which sassy songstress deserves to be crowned Best Dressed?

Country music style often features a lot of bling, and the ACM’s scarlet strip was no exception. But the leading ladies kept it under control and en vogue.

BLACK & WHITE

Traditionally we see a lot of bright, bold colors for spring, but the classic combo of black and white can be just as brilliant. Taylor Swift, who took home the award for Best Video for Highway Don’t Care with Tim McGraw and Keith Urban, dared to bare some skin by pairing a white crop top with a long black skirt that had a slit cut up to there. Little Big Town’s Kimberly Schlapman took a more conservative approach with a sleek strapless sheath. But it was Jewel to who really wowed in a floor-length Georage Chakra gown with lace details.

NEUTRALS

What’s sexier than showing skin? Donning a skin-colored dress, of course! Miranda Lambert, undoubtedly the night’s big winner (she took home awards for Female Vocalist of the Year, Single Record of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year) flaunted her slimmer figure in a curve-hugging gown by Randi Rahm. Carrie Underwood opted for an ivory Oscar de la Renta gown adorned with shimmering fringe, while newcomer and The Voice winner Danielle Bradbery selected a nude sequined dress with a sheer skirt.

SHADES OF BLUE

But the event wasn’t completely devoid of color. Among the nude hues and black and white contrasts was a sea of blue. Country music veteran Faith Hill looked fabulous in a tasteful pale blue gown from Saint Laurent. Album of the Year winner Kacey Musgraves took a cue from her elders in a floor-skimming baby blue dress by Miu Miu. But it was Shakira’s navy Zuhair Murad number with cool cutouts that stole the spotlight. And even though it’s not technically ‘blue,’ Kellie Pickler received many fashion accolades for her lavender Romona Keveza gown. Simple, yet striking, the sweetheart neckline paired with the ombre treatment made this dress elegantly edgy.

FLORAL DETAILS

No spring fling would be complete without a few floral details, so thank you Martina McBride and Shawna Thompson for following this fad. McBride opted for a form-fitting David Meister column gown that featured a black floral pattern over a nude background. Thompson kept the nude theme, but traded dark embellishments for bright red appliques.

What did you think about the show and its fabulous fashion? Who had the best dress?

Thanks for the reply. However, it does't change anything. I feel i should't have to check a box to opt out of a 39.95 dollar a month charge to my credit card. If you want to give people that VIP option they should check the box to join, not the other way around. I feel it's a way to cheat people and a way your company can make a few extra bucks. What a scam and joke this company is.

Hi Megan, I am sorry for any misunderstanding. During the check out process, you have the option to complete your first purchase as a VIP member and take advantage of the discounted offer, or un-checking the VIP option and complete your purchase using our retail option, if you decide to make a 1st time purchase. While the credits are not refundable you can certainly opt out, as there's never an obligation to buy as a VIP member. The $39.95 is issued to you as a credit, good toward any style and will never expire. For more details, please visit: http://www.justfab.com/faq.htm. -Claudia A.

This is by far the worst company i've ever come across. I'm not one to shop or give my credit card # out on-line, but thought I could trust such a highly known company. I purchased some boots a few months back and was completely happy with the product until I realized that they were charging me $39.95 a month to be a VIP member. I never signed up to be a VIP member. I was under the impression that I was making a one time purchase for my boots. When I called to try and get my $120.00 back they told me that they can't refund me my money. After getting a 30 minute run around they agreed to give me half back. I can't imagine treating my customers this way. I will never purchase anything from justfab again and I hope this helps others. If they can't treat me like a friend then they don't deserve my business.

Taylor Swift, all the way. Her outfit is unique conpared to the rest and she chose a bold lip, her signature, which each of the other ladies could hace done to add more to their ebsemble.

The white one and the blue are by far the best.
