59th Annual BMI Country Awards

Posted on November 09, 2011

Darlings, it was the 59th Annual BMI Country Awards and we’re struck by how there were 58 previous installments and yet we’ve never heard of them!

Hit it, cowgirls!

 

Carrie Underwood

It’s a little too Kardashian Kollection at Sears, but it’s not a bad dress. Maybe a bit too mature and severe for her.

 

Joanna Smith

We like the simplicity of this dress, but it really needed a punchier shoe.

 

Lauren Alaina

Sweetie, your dress is reminding us a little too much of your hair.

Not bad, but we would have chosen different shoes and recommended some bracelets.

Nicole Kidman (in Stella McCartney) and Keith Urban

It’s pretty and striking, we have to say. We disagree STRONGLY with the matchy shoes.

Why is he always wearing clown shoes?

 

Sandra Lee

This bitch has been hitting every red carpet in a 3000-mile radius lately. The dress is okay, but the hair is tragic.

 

Susie Brown and Danelle Everett of The JaneDear Girls

You can’t say they’re not working a look. The cupcake bag and the necklace on the left are a bit much, but otherwise, we approve.

 

Taylor Swift in Emilio Pucci

HATE the mermaid hair but we really love this dress on her. Quite possibly our favorite dress of hers, ever. See? We can be nice.

    Nicole Kidman always has a constipated expression on her face.

    And yes, I realize that is because she probably can’t actually move her face.

      I’m no fan of NK’s, but you have to admit at events like this she pretty much wipes the floor with everyone else. Of course, that’s not saying much, given country music’s general fashion approach.

        I was thinking the same thing.  The bar is set low but she is always above it at these events.

      I know!!  She needs a Botox intervention. What the hell is going on there? Cause it’s scaring me.

    • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

      She barely looks like herself 10 or 15 years ago.  She was so beautiful then!  Now she looks so plastic!  Yuck!

    Taylor Swift’s dress is trippy.  It kind of looks like an angel blowing a trumpet?

    • Aly Light

      At least she’s not dressed as an angel, for once.

      I see the angel!  :)

    Sandra Lee: crazy eyes, and it looks like she is bending her knees and standing weird which leads to another observation.  Are her thighs 4 feet long and her shins only 2 feet long? Why is this photo looking so bizarre to me?

      I think she is sort of squatting.  Maybe she had gas from her almost cooked food from a box.

        Spit my coffee laughing

        • Anonymous

          I ended up on her Wiki page trying to suss out WHY she’s here, and spit my iced coffee out at “She later attended Le Cordon Bleu in Ottawa, Canada for one week”.

          I mean, good for her, though.

  • Michelle Cruz

    Taylor looks so pretty when she ACTUALLY WEARS SOMETHING WITH COLOR OR DARK! 

    • Sobaika Mirza

      I’m just pleased we are not looking at another princess gown.

    For Taylor, I would have really loved to see that pin-straight hair ponytail with the bangs. But otherwise, I love the dress.

    Sandra Lee’s dress is Carolina Herrera and has been worn better by Mariska Hargitay. http://www.celebrityclothingline.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/Mariska+Hargitay+Museum+Moving+Image+Salute+hXntgM3Pma8l.jpg

    And is Lauren Alaina’s dress Rachel Zoe? http://www.style.com/fashionshows/complete/slideshow/F2011RTW-RZOE?event=show2262&designer=design_house4674&trend=&iphoto=5#slide=5

      Thanks for the info on Sandra Lee’s dress! I knew I’d seen it before but could absolutely not remember where.

    • Anonymous

      It would benefit Sandra Lee if she wasn’t standing like she really needed to go to the bathroom….  Which also begs the question of why she is there in the first place?  Is she dating a CMA person?

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Karen-Stephens-Bassett/1503492602 Karen Stephens Bassett

        I wondered why she was squatting.  Now I know.

        Andrew Cuomo.  Hardly a CMA person

      Lauren looks like she is wrapped in a bath towel.

      Thanks for the link to Mariska. Amazing how much better the dress looks on someone who respects The Girls.

    Favorites: Joanna Smith, Nicole Kidman and Taylor Swift.
    Carrie Underwood: Pretty girl, zero taste in clothes.
    Sandra Lee: I tried watching her show to laugh at her Semi-Cooking, but damn, that woman has a worse case of droopy boob than even Maggie G. or Kiki D. I had to stop watching.

    Who the hell are the Janedear Girls??

    My God, Nicole Kidman’s dress is amazing. I want, in the worst way.

      And yes, I would wear it with the red shoes.

    keith urbans clown shoes. ok, that one just did me in. LMFAO!

      He always wears these thick-soled shoes on the red carpet.
      Does he have an eating disorder?  He’s really thin here.

  • Anonymous

    I love that Stella McCartney dress on Nicole, normally I’m not a huge SMcC fan but this is so cool.  Um, Keith wears “clown shoes” because they add an inch or two to his height.  Duh.
    Sandra Lee, go home and sort of cook something.  Bitch annoys the fuck out me.

  • http://profiles.google.com/claudiaberry Claudia Berry

    Hate Nicole’s dress and HATE Sandra “Cocktail Time” Lee with a passion!

    What’s with the angle on Sandra Lee?  She looks like she’s melting into the carpet.

    And no one with a BMI over 18 is allowed to attend.

      “Kardashian Kollection at Sears”!   Completely!

      Everytime I see her, I think of her dumb songs about vandalizing her boyfriends’ truck and letting Jesus take the wheel, and of how much money she has, and then I’m a bit discouraged.

  • Judy_J

    Must be getting to be winter time.  Sandra Lee’s breasts are heading south.

      BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!  I will never look at migratory birds the same way.

    I can’t even look at what she is wearing – what in the world has the previously gorgeous Nicole Kidman done to her face?  She looks more like a Halloween mask of Nicole Kidman every year.

  • MilaXX

    Everybody is just a’ight, nothing stellar. The neckline on Nicole Kidman’s dress is interesting and I wish her hair wasn’t covering it.

  • http://asskickingadviser.com/ Ass Kicking Adviser

    Well if Nicole can wear her hair ironed like that for 15 years straight then Taylor can keep her mermaid hair until she is at least 21. I love both Nicole and Taylor’s dresses. Totally killer. But Nicole looks weird and Taylor looks fun and young.
    And everyone else looks craptastic. Not that I know who most of them are.

  • Rand Ortega

    Still nothing more than the Klan w/ a (not very good) beat. Mall hair & Forever 21 dresses. No refinement or sophistication whatsoever.

  • http://profiles.google.com/misslauraschultz Laura Schultz

    And Taylor Swift is not wearing heavy red lipstick! FTW! But yeah, she needs a new hairstyle.

    I can’t wait for us to be done with the neo Betty Page thing.  Hasn’t she suffered enough?

    Lauren Alaina is practically just a baby and this must be her first red carpet attempt, so let’s cut her some slack.  She looks cute.  None of it is perfect, but it’s cute.

    I hate Nicole Kidman’s dress and her hair is ridiculous. Joanna Smith looks great.

    I think keith urban is wearing lifts, as his wife is so much taller… maybe this was sarcasm that I didn’t catch.

    O…M…..G!!!!  On a related note, I can’t wait for tomorrows CMA Red Carpet rundown.  I just saw some pics, too much tragedy!  Some thing called Jolene Bell Bundy (or something like that) is doing a parting of the blue vagina curtains that is too crazy.  However, Jennifer Nettles from Sugarland looks amazing.  And yes, Sandra Lee was there….

    Taylor Swift for the win in this round. Can’t believe I just typed that.

    In other news, Taylor Swift looks nice.

    Why is it that Nicole Kidman looks like she comes from a different planet than everyone else. I’m scrolling down, oh bad shoes, tight across the tummy, nasty hair, blah blah-bitty blah blah blah……NICOLE. Oh right. That’s what spectacularly gorgeous and elegant looks like. Just rip up and throw out the rest.

    What is with you guys?  I know nothing about Taylor Swift, I hear she is a singer, and that one jerk made a scene on national TV at some award event about her, but as far as this group, she is the clear winner.   FYI, I have no idea who most of these women are, but they dress do not dress very well for a red carpet event.

    Okay I know were supposed to be nice about peoples physics and such so the boys get invited places ror not sued or whatever but Janedear Girl on the left is making me think of Jamie Fox as Wanda.

    Country Music Award shows are always dreck-ful when it comes to fashion. I can’t even muster any commentary besides the fact that Carrie Underwood is always going as Pageant Barbie.

    What the hell is “Body Mass Index Country Awards” anyways? Are the women competing for the smallest body-fat-to-height ratio?

  • http://twitter.com/yankeefoxtrot Alex McGeagh

    Why are Sandra Lee’s boobs at her waist?

    If there were ever a need for dressing in a dress which allowed support garments, this is it. Yikes…

    Also missed the memo on whatever she had to do with country music…

      Ah, that must be what Chelsea Handler means by ”long boobs”.

    I think the Janedear Girls (who?) look ridiculous, but other than that, I agree with you. I can’t say I love Nicole Kidman’s dress, but it is definitely interesting, and I don’t think it’s ugly.

  • Anonymous

    Taylor Swift in something tight and sparkly. There’s a surprise! The only thing keeping me from being totally bored here is how ugly that dress is.

    (I was nice to Taylor about a month ago and I’m still going strong on that one charitable comment.)

    Why is the first consort of NY State at a country music awards dinner?

    I think Andrew has presidential aspirations and he has done the best job for NY State at difficult time but I don’t know if I could vote for him. Could you imagine the horror of state dinner “table scapes” of broken chairs and marina sauce made with ketchup? The national horror!!!

      Thanks for the hearty chuckle.  I’m going to be imagining various such scenarios all week, perhaps for years :)

    Yet another series of photos that only prove TLO must open a school to teach people how to pose for the camera. I also suggest an elective for fashion accessories.

    What is Sandra doing?
    Why does Taylor standing like she needs a “bio break”?
    And Miss Lauren looks ready to click her heels three times and go “home”.

    Kidman isn’t Botoxed, she’s wearing a Guy Fawkes mask in solidarity with OWS.

    Didn’t Sandra live out of her car at one point in her life? If so, does that qualify her to be there?

    Nicole Kidman needs to stop flat-ironing her hair unless it’s for a sleek ponytail or up-do. It looks awful. But the gown is fabulous.

    agree with the taylor swift comment. hate her lame hair and her boring self 99% of the time, but yes this dress is great on her! its not white and virginal
