CMT Music Awards Red Carpet

Posted on June 07, 2012

Is it us, or do  country music people hand out awards roughly every 3 weeks or so?

Hit it, Cowboys and Cowgirls!

 

Ali Dee

 Enh. It’s all right. Seen it plenty of times before. The lace looks a bit … shiny and the shoes are all kinds of wrong.

 

Carrie Underwood in Randi Rahm

Country Glitter Barbie strikes again. It’s not bad, though. Once again: the shoes are all wrong. We have a feeling we’re going to be saying that a few more times before the end of this post.

 

Denise Richards

 Standard, but not bad.

 

Elizabeth Cook

 We wonder if she and Carrie Underwood got into a fight in the ladies room.

We don’t actually like cowboy boots with a cocktail dress, but like the world of hip hop, the world of country has its own sartorial rules and we can only go so far in complaining. In other words, it makes as much sense to complain about cowboy boots at the CMT Awards as it does to complain about droopy jeans at the MTV Awards.

 

Hayden Panettiere

 Cute, but adding a belt was a really dumb idea.

 

Jennie Garth

What gal doesn’t want a swamp dress?

 

Jessie James

Strippertastic.

 

Jordin Sparks in Kevan Hall

 From the Loretty Lynn Collection at Sears.

We kinda love it for being so on-point.

We have to say, we’re starting to get depressed. What does it say about the state of modern country music when half the attendees show up in standard beige cocktail dresses? Bring on the hoedown clothes and prairie dresses, we say. Let’s camp this joint up a little.

 

Kristen Bell in Reem Acra

 That’s a gorgeous dress. A bit matchy to her hair color, but otherwise a perfect look.

 

Laura Bell Bundy

 It’s sassy! It’s tacky! It’s SASSYTACKY!

 

Lauren Alaina

 Yawning now.

Shoes don’t go.

 

Rachel Holder

 Was there an ugly shoe contest that night or something?

 

Sara Evans in Julian Joyce

Someone’s looking to get laid.

 

Sarah Darling

 Yawning again.

 

Shawna Thompson in Maria Lucia Hohan

Weeping now. Patsy Cline should come down from heaven and give these boring country gals the what-for.

 

Skylar Laine

YES! TACK-O-RAMA! Thank you for bringing it, country style, Miss Laine. We bow down to your awesome tackiness. It’s like Graceland in dress form.
