Country’s hottest crooners showed up at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas for the 45th Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday.

Stars including Julianne Hough, Carrie Underwood, Jewel, Reba McEntire and Randy Travis walked the orange carpet, with the dresscode ranging from glam couture and dapper duds, to embroidered lapels and offbeat overalls!

Taylor Swift reigned the carpet, wearing an impossibly gorgeous, lavender Marchesa gown from the Spring 2010 collection, which was embroidered in leaves. The gown featured a sexy slit, and layers of gorgeous chiffon. Not many people could pull off this look (Olivia Wilde wore a very similar gown to the Emmy’s this year), but Taylor managed to do so, looking sexy and angelic, simultaneously.

Though we were anxious to see American Idol alum Carrie Underwood on the orange carpet, her look was a bit disappointing.  

The gorgeous blonde babe, opted for a pale pink, one-ruffled-shouldered, mini, which featured an embellished side halter and belt. Although it wasn’t awful, it wasn’t awe-inspiring either.

Julianne Hough missed the mark in a confusingly coutured, white strapless gown, which featured awkward embellishment, while Miranda Lambert shimmered in midnight blue, sequined floor length, which featured cap sleeves and a plunging neckline.


Jewel looked absolutely gorgeous, wearing a dreamy, periwinkle blue, chiffon baby doll gown, which featured an embellished bodice.  

The tiered floor length, had a fairy tale like feel to it, which was perfectly suited for the rags-to-riches singing sensation, while Meghan Linsey of the band Steel Magnolia’s wore a peachy perfect strapless, which looked strikingly similar to Demi Moore’s Atelier Versace Oscar Dress.
