As for the major la mode miss, Nicole Kidman wasn't exactly country strong with her L' Wren Scott look.  The bigscreen babe, who was there to support hubby Keith Urban, wore a skintight snaky dress with a furry shrug that didn't do her any justice.

And Shawna Thompson scored the wackiest look of the night, looking like she was headed to a gothic themed wedding, wearing a purple strapless thing with a totally crazy hairdo.

Fresh from her honeymoon, newlywed Reese Witherspoon skipped the red carpet and headed inside, ravishing in a sexy Marchesa black lace cocktail dress, which featured tulle overlay and an embroidered bodice. The bigscreen babe, who was sporting her dazzling William Goldberg engagement and wedding rings, was on hand to present an award with her Water For Elephants costar Robert Pattinson.

Julianne Hough brightened up the carpet in a fresh and fabulous fashion.  The beautiful Burlesque star and girlfriend of Ryan Seacrest stunned in a coral halter gown, which she paired with emerald and gold jewels and a crafty VBH clutch.

And the least likely attendee was none other than sassy songbird Rihanna, who was at the show to perform with Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles (who looked flawless in her cutout halter gown!). The sassy songbird opted for a white hot fringed cocktail dress, which was a subdued and sophisticated choice for the usually out-there fashionista.

Supermodel turned actress Brooklyn Decker had the same spring in her step, wearing a salmon skintight Victoria Beckham dress with slanted black heels, while Celine Dion opted for a dark and dramatic look, rocking a sequin Vivienne Westwood frock.
