45th Annual CMA Awards Part 1

Posted on November 10, 2011

That’s right, bitches. Part ONE. There were too many cowboys and cowgirls to fit into just one post. So let’s get our yeehaw on and start judging!

 

Carrie Underwood in Reem Acra

Very pretty and polished, but we have a complaint, of course. Bad enough she picked a dress that matches her hair; did she have to go for the matchy clutch too?

 

Erin Andrews

Honky Tonk Barbie.

 

Faith Hill in Chado Ralph Rucci

Not crazy about the hair, but the dress is gorgeous. Perhaps a bit too low-key for the CMAs, though. We actually like the lack of jewelry, but again, the big hair doesn’t really go with the minimalism.

 

Ginnifer Goodwin in Prabal Gurung

TRAGIC HAIR. We don’t even think she should be leaving the house with hair like that, let alone appearing in public and having her picture taken. The dress is, typically for her, too complicated and doesn’t suit her.

 

Hannah Blaylock

Too heavy and too long, but we like the color on her.

 

Jane Dear Girls

We don’t know, you guys. We’re all for cultivating a look, but the one on the left looks like she works in an adult toy store and the one on the right … we don’t actually have a problem with the one on the right, although the lacey hem is kind of ugly.

 

Kimberly Schlapman

Simple, but it works. We’re kind of digging the hair. How refreshing to see someone who didn’t iron all the character out of their hair.

 

Kimberly Williams-Paisley

Enh. Like something you’d wear to a wedding.

 

Laura Bell Bundy

Like something you’d wear to jump out of a cake the night before a wedding.

 

Martina McBride

We’re all for ladies in pants on the RC but not these shiny, wrinkly things, Martina. Those shoes look awful.

 

Nicole Kidman in Jean Paul Gaultier

Can’t argue with that.

Sandra Lee

Why is she suddenly everywhere? She must have velcro nipples holding that thing up.

 

Sara Evans

Pretty color; unflattering shape.

Shawna Thompson

It’s sad when strippers are forced to make their costumes out of old hotel room drapes, isn’t it?

      With the exception of some strange “shake it for me” song that was kind of creepy, this was a pretty enjoyable show. I mean, even 2 minutes of Kenny Loggins and Gregg Allman made it totally worth it.

      Now this is what I want from an awards show.  Everything from perfection to train wreckage.  I actually love Faith Hill’s 60′s fashion shoot big hair, paired with that sublime Ralph Rucci dress.  But, Ginnifer, Hannah, Laura Bell, Martina, Shana, and Sara, yeas I’m talking to YOU!  WHAT were you thinking?????

      Just starting a hard day of work here (in the Mountain Time Zone).  Thanks for the morning laughs to get my day jump-started.  Can’t wait for your assessment of Carrie Underwood’s competing stripper-drape-sewing project look that I caught at the end of the night.  My eyebrows about jumped off my head.

      Faith Hill is a beautiful woman, but that hair should just hop right back in the time machine and go home to the 60′s where it belongs.

        And I “like x infinity” Sara’s comment – very short and to the point!  

        Anorexic hair has been one of my major dislikes lo these many years – especially on Nicole Kidman.  At least in the photo above, her hair has a tiny bit of life in it.  Her hair is naturally curly and I always wonder why she feels the need to iron it to the nth degree for EVERY SINGLE red carpet appearance!

      • http://beautyforrealgirls.blogspot.com/ accidental housewife

        Yep. And that is some serious hair she’s sporting, isn’t it? I love it.

      Shawna Thompson is tragic. That is too much awful in one outfit.

      Underwood, Kidman, and Schlapman all looked great.

      That woman from the Jane Dear Girls is using that cupcake bag again? Or is it the same event?

          Aww, thanks. Husband snored all night, then I had to drop my son off at BART for a field trip. A trip that usually takes less than 15 took 30. We were seriously passed by a second grade girl on a f–king scooter. Like the scene from Office Space.

      Gonna have to disagree on Carrie. Yes, it is matchy, but damn! Carrie matches things GOOD!
      Erin-bwahahaha! Honky Tonk Barbie!
      Faith. Oh, Faith. Why do you have to even exist?. (Can you tell I don’t like her? Gosh, how much talent does it take to lay on a bed and wiggle. No, don’t answer that.)
      Ginnifer chopped her hair with her embroider scissors again, didn’t she?
      Hannah, thanks for convincing me not to go with the applique flowers for my daughter’s wedding.
      Jane Deere-she has that same cupcake purse along tonight.
      Kimberly S.-Hmm, I wouldn’t have gone with silver for such a blonde.
      Kimberly W-P-This IS the dress I want for my daughter’s wedding.
      Laura-On the High Wire!
      Martina-you are such a teensy tiny thing, but even you could go up a size. Or maybe ride the limo standing up. Your shoes are lovely.
      Nicole looks great except her face. Botox is not your friend.
      Sandra Lee? Why?
      Sara Evans-love the brown and blue jewelry combo. Now find a gay who will tell you not to wear jersey dresses.
      Shawna, put it away.

      Wow, I thought I needed another cup of coffee, but apparently not.

      Kimberly Schlapman looks like she did her hair by sticking her finger in an electrical socket.

      “Velvet nipples”? HAHAHAHAHA!!!

      There are no words for how trashy Shawna Thompson’s dress is.

    • http://twitter.com/bredalot Bridget Smith

      I don’t like Nicole Kidman’s dress as much as I like Cate Blanchett’s similar one from several years ago at the Oscars, but it’s lovely and flattering and that’s unusual & good for her. (I also don’t like NK as much as I like CB, but that’s just a matter of scale: the tall, pale, talented ladies will always be my idols.)

      I don’t mind the VOLUME of Faith Hill’s hair, I mind that it looks like she styled it in a wind tunnel.

      Anyway, Kimberly Schlapman stuck her finger into an electrical socket for that hair, “velcro nipples” made me snort hot tea, and Shawna Thompson should have never left the house in that poor excuse for a toga/Grecian-style dress.

      Underwood: Not a good color for her, but I’m surprised I actually like the dress. Usually I hate everything she wears.
      Erin Andrews: Honky Tonk Hooker
      Faith Hill: Did she walk through a wind tunnel to get there?
      Ginnifer Goodwin: Girl is a hot mess.
      Hannah Blaylock: Ugly.
      Jane Dear Girls: Who are these people??
      Kimberly Schlapman: I like it. Could have used some big jewelry, though.
      Kimberly W-P: I like it. the color suits her. Could have used some dramatic eye makeup.
      Laura Bell Bundy: Is she serious with this? Please tell me she’s not serious.
      Martina McBride: That outfit is pure Mother of the Bride, except for the color.
      Nicole K: I like it. She needs to go back to being a redhead.
      Sandra Lee: Tacky. Somebody needs to tell her that the bra-less look is not her friend.
      Sara Evans: Enh. Looks like she took her sofa cover and wrapped it around herself at the last minute.
      Shawna T: That’s hilarious.

      Whoa. There are so many tragic women’s breasts up in here. Nicole Kidman’s chest looks plain weird – like they photoshopped her breasts out and elongated the rest.  Sandra Lee and Shawna Thompson need a boob intervention.

      Hilarious. All Shauna is missing is the curtain rod from Carol Burnett’s Scarlett O’Hara curtain dress!

      Kimberly Schlapman (whoever she is) looks deranged but fun. Handle with care, or you might end up with your bunny boiling on the stove.

      Mostly tragic. I wish Carrie Underwood would try something new. Her dress is one of the prettier ones however. Love Faith’s hair and dress, just not together. Nicole needs to yank her dress up a couple of inches and do something with that hair. Ugh!

      Is Nicole sort of the odd woman out? Bringing Hollywood Star-level resources and fashion to CMA-level gigs? And not even a country singer. I wonder if they other girls hate her.

      Martina is channeling old-school Mandrell Sisters shit right there. And that’s not a good thing.

      And Sandra, girl, I’m almost starting to like you despite how much I hate what you do, but WTF are you doing here?

        Nicole is there because she’s married to Keith Urban, not because she’s a Hollywood star.

        • Terence Ng

          Thank you, I know. I was pointing out that she’s not even a country singer (re: Urban’s wife), but she brings the resources of a Hollywood star (her own) to red carpets where everyone else lacks that level of styling and fame. Like  a famous singer attending a gala run by her public university husband and dressing in a Dior dress while everyone is looking nice in their department store finds.

      I love that Nicole Kidman is a regular goer to these country awards now that she’s married to Keith Urban. I wonder if she’s made country singer friends, and I hope she one day fully embraces the country music look and shows up to these events with big hair and whatnot.

      Nicole Kidman really needs to do something about her hair.  And whoever Kimberley Schlapman is, I don’t think her hair is about not ironing, it’s about a great big perm.  And doesn’t Faith Hill always have big hair?  She looks great in that dress, and I think the big hair is sort of fine for her. 

      This Laura Bell Bundy looks like at least she’s in on the joke, but really she should never do that again.

      The thing I love about Country Music awards shows is that the stars still take some chances and make mistakes. It feels like amateur hour, but it’s fun. Makes me miss Cher at the Academy Awards. (Though of course, her outfits were show stoppers and intended to be talked about the next day in an “Oh my God, did you see her dress? I think her nipples were showing!” kind of way. Somehow I don’t think that’s what Sandra Lee/Dee was going for.)

      Carrie U. looks good here. Unfortunately, she wore several other much less-flattering outfits throughout the night. Seriously tragic outfits.
      Almost as seriously tragic as what Miranda Lambert wears to pick up her award. But we’ll get to that.
      Faith’s hair works better with the awesome pantsuit she wears later in the evening during her performance.But I do love that dress.
      Ginnifer, that is too much dress for you. Egads!

      What an assortment!  Carrie U and Faith Hill are looking pretty elegant.  Nicole Kidman too, dress-wise, but I can’t get past her new plastic face. She always looks like a bot, and it freaks me out.

      I get the Barbie reference, but I have to say that Erin Andrews looks pretty.  Everything fits and the shoes are great.

      Everyone else?  A range from What The….? to Holy Mother of God!  I don’t know, or care, who Shawna Thompson is, but that shmatta she’s wearing is one of the ugliest things I’ve ever seen. And the Bundy person must be using the same substances Rick Perry has been taking lately. The bodice on Sandra Lee’s dress has a built-in wardrobe malfunction and looks terrible.  Also, count me among those who don’t understand why the host of a TV food show is suddenly on every red carpet from here to Beijing.  Don’t get it.

      I just LUV the realness of the country music crowd, and they make no excuses.  Martina is one of my favorites and she just looks like a busy mom that rushed in from PTA.   I do not know who Kimberly Schlapman is, but as a proud owner of curly locks myself, props to her for totally ROCKIN’ that hair.  Power to the curly girls!

      I love Faith Hills dress and it fits her gorgeously but that 80′s Sphia Loren hair combined with the big, tight smile is just off putting.
      Nicoles dress is fab!  She looks great but I always think she looks great.
      Shawna Thompson – WTF?!?!  “fancy whore” is not a red carpet look.
      Laura Bell Bundy, it’s one thing to wear a dress that does that and another thing to actually DO THAT on the red carpet.  STOP IT!
      Sandra Lee – go home.  We are all tried of you and you look floozy here.

      Sandra Lee is an affront to food and partly responsible for the infantilizing of the American palate. In other words I loathe her and her awful abortion of a show. Not even her drunken crazy entertainment value can make up for her overall fail. Though I hate to say I don’t loathe her dress but goodness, one deep breath and she’s done.

        Ditto to everything you said. The woman is a scourge. And, as several others are wondering, why is she at the CMAs? Why was she at the Glamour Women of the Year event? I thought they sent her back to the lab every night for some rest, to be rebooted in the morning.

          I guess she’s with some politician and that gets her…um…invited to the CMAs? Because you know, the things are totally related. Yeah I got nothing.

            Yeah, I got nothing either. It’s become one of  life’s mysteries.

        Amen!!!!

        What I want explained to me is what Andrew Cuomo sees in her? All the beautiful, smart, 40ish in New York and he picks her? Hell I bet there many bitter kittens posting here that fit that description. I would understand him taking up with a 20 something but Sandra Lee who makes Andrew Cuomo (a name which ends in vowel) lasagne with KECTHCUP as some sort of secret ingredient. Do god help up if she ends up as First Whatever.

      I think Carrie looks great, even if she is all matchy-matchy. On her, it looks good.

      Is it just me, or does Nicole Kidman look strange?

      Wait–why is Gennifer Goodwin there?  Just wondering.  And Sandra Lee?  Are they both singers now? 
      I think Carrie Underwood looks adorable–and I like McBride’s outfit, except her pants are too short!  I don’t know any of the other folks, so I won’t say anything about them….

      Gotta get a gimmick.

      Faith Hill’s hair is (IMO) perfect. This IS the CMA, after all. I don’t want it to get all Hollywood mainstream.

      Sandra Lee – I’d have been tempted to start a drinking game based on how often she had to hoist that thing up. It’s like a tacky and tragic bridal gown.

      The awful are so truly awful, there’s not much to say.

      Carrie Underwood is perfect IMHO

      I was unaware that Hot Topic had a prom collection. The Jane Dear Girls have educated me.

      “so nice to see someone not iron all the character out of their hair” – but if only the same could be said about faces.

      I’d like to think a bunch of country singers cornered Kidman in the ladies room.  “Stop making us look bad, or we will cut you.  Our clutches are so terrible-looking because they were the only ones we can keep Bowie knives in them.”

      Shawna Thompson FTL!

      Nicole Kidman looks like some different kind of species altogether. Outstanding.

      Carrie Underwood can be as matchy matchy as she likes, as far as I’m concerned. She’s one of the few ladies on this red carpet who doesn’t look like country fried Southern hell.

      Don’t know anything about country music  but just happened to catch the 2011 CMA awards, looked at some videos of Thompson Square online (and lots and lots of Eric Church)  and have rarely seen anyone as beautiful as Shawna Thompson is in them (despite the platinum streak).     So why O God does a woman who has talent, beauty and had a great breakout year do this to herself?   Incomprehensible.
