Jesus, Mary and Oprah, what is WRONG with this girl?

Okay, fine. She’s in Nashville; it’s a CMT crowd; we get it. You wanna do the big hair and the sparkly for this venue, that makes a certain amount of sense and we can get behind it. But how does she manage to make herself look 15 years older than she is all the time? Is it the Seacrest thing? Like, she’s bearding for him and she feels she has to tart herself up? Sweetie, you can release a sex tape with him and the public is still going to assume he’s playing for our team.

A lot of people hate us when we say this, but that hem length is a bit on the mature side. Tone down the hair just a bit (but leave it big enough for a CMT event), raise that hemline a good 6 inches, swap out the pumps for a pair of KILLA shoes, and for God’s sake, get someone new to do your eye makeup, THEN you might have a sexy and age-appropriate look going on.

We’ll give her credit for one thing: she clearly dresses according to the venue. Check out her NYC look:

At least the makeup’s a little better, but she still got this wrong. An up ‘do , a strong lip, and maybe a pair of booties or bear trap shoes, as well as a more interesting clutch, and this might have looked chic and youthful. As it is, she once again looks like she’s a 40+ year old former star doing the rounds to promote her latest role as the mother of the ingenue. Honey, YOU’RE THE INGENUE. START DRESSING THE PART.

How much you want to bet when her contract with Seacrest is up she’ll suddenly start looking her age?
