The 2012 CMA Awards are in the history books. We’re thrilled for the winners, but we’re more impressed by some of the gowns the leading ladies wore on the red carpet.
Taylor Swift is really going with her whole Red album motif. The ex-girlfriend of Conor Kennedy impressed in two separate gowns at the 2012 CMA Awards. Swifty first showed off her impossibly svelte frame in a long Jenny Packham creation. She later wore a fun and flirty red party dress during her performance.
CMA Awards host Carrie Underwood wore a dozen different looks during the three-hour awards show, but our favorite is definitely the embellished Reem Acra look she rocked on the red carpet.
Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale is about to try her hand at country music with her upcoming debut album. She definitely made a good first impression on the Nashville set, with this classy black-and-cream creation.
Like Hale, former One Tree Hill star Jana Kramer is about to release her debut country album. The girlfriend of Brantley Gilbert made jaws drop with her plunging Anthony Franco dress. Double-sided tape was invented for gowns like hers.
You can’t have an awards show without putting the redheaded superstar Reba McEntire on the best-dressed list. The Malibu Country star walked the red carpet with her huge smile and shimmery royal blue dress. It takes us back to the big-haired Reba of the ’90s.
It’s hard not to smile while looking at Kellie Pickler. The former American Idol finalist showed off her glowing personality — and adorable, shorn ‘do — while at the CMA Awards. Our favorite part of the look? Her baby blue strapless gown.
