      The slit in the Rucci goes straight to her Cucci

        I could never say anything better than that. Bravo!

      Someone had some work done…And I just can’t with that dress.

      • Mismarker

        She had braces on her teeth for while…maybe the look of her new mouth is making her whole face look a little “different”.

        • Targettaste

          That might be it (I hope). She looks oddest in the poses with her mouth closed. Maybe it feels different and she hasn’t found a natural smile?

    • Diego!

      Did both of them had a promotion in botox? I don’t like her dress at all, there is some #pussyalert going on down there. But she looks ‘refreshed’. He looks ugly and skinny as sh*t! Eewww

    • TheDivineMissAnn

      Oh, no honey, not that dress. He looks like a million bucks, tho.

    • kbshee

      I thought she was wearing gaucho pants, which is kind of, um, interesting? But then saw a hunk of thigh. Yee.

      • Lori

        Thank god it wasn’t just me. I originally saw gaucho pants as well. The thing that’s killing me is that the unbuttoned skirt is actually worse. How is it possible that she’s wearing something worse than gaucho pants?

      • Mismarker

        You had me at gaucho pants. And lace ones, to boot!

    • Beverly Kozma

      Close your dress or close your legs. Too much.

    • sablehunter

      She looks like a hot, botox-frightened mess. His suit fits well, although it’s a bit powder blue explosion for me. And the hat is ridiculous.

    • Kelly Sowers

      Black lace with a giant slit up her legs, and black mesh belly?
      YUCK. Just trashy. The top doesn’t even fit properly! The buttons are gapping!

    • Lizzyisi

      I used to wear almost this exact same dress to goth clubs in 1990. But never unbuttoned like that. And with combat boots. It came from PierOne.

    • Sara1Babe

      I see where her babies came from!

    • marilyn

      The Christian Dior shoes are not going to save this mess. That dress would be fine to wear out to dinner, or to go to the theater. It is not important enough to wear to an industry awards show. The black lace looks kind of negligee-ish. The hair, makeup and jewelry are strictly nail salon in the strip mall stuff. She needs a new look badly.

    • crash1212

      Seems I’m in the minority, but I think she looks great in this dress – the front “slash” is a bit much, but I’m not mad at it. I love her shoe choice and her hair/make-up is perfect. He looks great as well. I don’t understand all the comments about “work being done” – he looks like he lost some weight…you people are way harsh today.

    • H3ff

      She looks like she got ravaged in the limo on the way to the venue.

      • Janet B

        So true.
        Yet he looks unrumpled. That’s hardly fair.

      • foodycatAlicia

        Lucky her – he’s cute.

    • PastryGoddess

      That is a tragic tragic look

    • frannyprof

      HATE. And she wears some version of some black lace thingy all the time. This is, by far, the worst.

    • Stella Zawistowski

      I…oh god, no. Especially not that belt, which is too close to her skin tone and thus makes it look like there’s a strip of midriff going on.

      • Ginny Ellsworth

        That’s her belly….with a string tied around it. And since there wasn’t enough skin showing, she decided to unbutton the top of her shirt. Seriously, she looks like she was ridden hard and put away wet.

        In horseman’s terms, that is not a good thing.

      • Lori

        That’s not a belt. That’s a sad strip of illusion net showing midriff. This outfit is definitely not the finest moment in the history of Chado Ralph Rucci.

        • Stella Zawistowski

          Oh god, you’re right. It IS illusion netting. My head just exploded.

    • annabelle archer

      Sweet lord in heaven. It’s lace, it’s see through, are those bike shorts underneath? What the fuck did she make her husband wear? So many thoughts, too little time to process them all. Epic fail.

    • Imasewsure

      The dress is a hot mess but really only because of the horrible slit. Always an issue to me with lace (and of course, absurdly high which is even worse). Love the shoes. Wish she would go back to short, sleek hair but that’s my wish for most “starlets of a certain age”.

    • nannypoo

      Whorish. And his hat is way too big. I assume they’re a couple. They need to get better at giving each other feedback. “Honey, you look like a slut in that dress.” “Thank you, Darling, and your hat makes you look idiotic.” You know, like that.

      • EditKitten

        It IS a country music awards show, though, so the hat is actually pretty venue-appropriate …

        • Celandine1

          Yeah but that hat has cartoonish proportions and looks like a weird samuri helmet from the front.

      • l_c_ann

        They are married. Which is more than being a couple.

    • MilaXX

      Did she add the split or can we just not see it or the model? That one element ruins the look for me.

      • marlie

        I think it’s there, but for some reason it’s more obvious on Faith.

        • teensmom99


        • MilaXX

          just tacky. I am not a fan of center splits to begin with but combined with the undone buttons, the whole thing just looks cheap.

          • marlie

            That was what I thought too. It’s almost like there’s an arrow pointing the eye to the center of her body. And center splits almost NEVER look good.

    • Amelia Pitts

      Some of you are scary mean. I hate to tell you, but these country stars will always have more money than you could ever dare to dream of to buy things just to piss you off and I hope they do so every day. God bless both of them they look great!

      • Angela_the_Librarian

        The fact that she has so much money and probably also has designers vying for her attention is part of what makes this such a sad choice. I think if she would have stuck closer to the runway version it would not have been as problematic. Celebrity style choices never piss me off, unless they are wearing fur.

        • marlie

          ^This. The criticism comes from the fact that – with all of their money and access to designers and stylists – SO many celebs look awful when they show up on the red carpet – the one place where they are expected to be perfectly put-together. Clearly, money doesn’t buy style or taste.

      • EditKitten

        So … they’re better than us because they have more money?

        Methinks you’re a first-timer here.

    • TSkot

      It’s actually very pretty on the model all buttoned-up.

    • Antonia O’Connor Donnelly

      The lace/granny panty look needs to die a thousand deaths!

    • decormaven

      I like it when she is dressed & made up in a softer look. The hair, the va-va-voom slit, the unbuttoned bodice- it’s a little too overt for her.

    • marlie

      I LOVE the clutch. I love the shoes too, just not with this dress. And I like the dress on the model, but theslituptothere on Faith is really distracting. I HATE that you can see the nude lining on the inside of the dress. And it sort of makes the dress look like she’s wearing palazzo pants or something. And she should have kept the top buttoned.

      Nice dress, but poor execution. At least she didn’t wear those tassel things on her wrists.

    • Tracy_Flick

      If you put it with those marabou kitten-heel “slippers,” it would be a perfect 70s/80s glamour bathrobe.

    • lonepear

      Girl, this is not your dress. It may not be anyone’s. But it is definitely not yours.

    • Kiltdntiltd

      i am CRYING inside. How could she do that to that gorgeous Rucci dress? She took it straight to Trampytown USA.

      • Kathleen Shicks

        Also, how could she do that with that gorgeous man on her arm?!

      • ballerinawithagun

        I know, Rucci is the god of good taste and perfection. Did she have alterations done after she bought the dress? I can’t imagine that he would allow that dress to be fit that tight and did they open up the slit? It doesn’t look as if there are closures.

        • Kiltdntiltd

          It looks as though the dress buttons all the way down the front, and that she chose to leave it mostly open. (sigh)

      • drdarke

        I – uh, I normally have no problem with an attractive woman showing off her assets in her couture.

        But that outfit – she looks like trailer trash in it, and it looks like it might be a lovely dress in another context.

    • MajorBedhead

      It looks like she’s wearing camo cargo short shorts underneath. I just can’t even with this look.

    • j_anson

      Is the image here supposed to be… lace chaps?

    • Garcia Loca

      Buttoned-up, like on the model, it’s a serviceable Italian widow wear. Unbuttoned, like on Faith, it’s a sloppy little negligee.

    • Aj Earnheart Brokaw

      Faith, you are trying too hard. Go home. Look in the mirror and see yourself for the beautiful woman you are…then rip this dress to shreads.

    • teensmom99

      You know you’re wearing a dress wrong when your version is sexier and shows more skin than the runway model’s.

    • Glam Dixie

      Dear hat gods, please bring back the good old felt stetson. Also, Faith looks terrible.

      • formerlyAnon

        Felt stetson. Yes.

    • foodycatAlicia

      I just realised that Faith Hill and Carrie Underwood are not the same person.

    • tereliz

      I don’t need to see that much of Faith’s hill. That is one hell of a slit, and in a lace skirt? WTF?

    • Sara__B

      I’ll take a six pack of Tim McGraw to go, please.

    • Reality TV Casting

      hell to the no! her spanx are cream making her skin looking oompa loompa orange her cooch is almost as OUT as this dress

    • poggi

      Way to turn a dress into a beach coverup Faith.

    • formerlyAnon

      She turned a decently pretty dress (can’t do better, I’m sick of see-through lace) into something that, were it not see-through lace, looks like a school teacher tried to turn her work shirtwaist into something more sexy in the ladies room at happy hour by unbuttoning too many buttons down from the top and up from the bottom. But she earns back a tiny bit of respect for the shoes. Which I LOVE.

      That stupid hat is too big for his head and we all know he’s got hair issues, anyway, and it’s ruining a damn good job with the suit. But it’s the ACM Awards, so I’ll give him a grudging pass for the hat, especially since those look like very appropriate dress boots.

    • wonderdivaEtsy

      I saw a photo of this online last night and was anxiously awaiting TLo’s commentary. But apparently it has rendered them speechless. I can’t say I blame them!

    • kalisa

      Did her makeup artist contour her chest? It looks like he contoured her chest.

    • Trisha26

      Country spaniel hair and Is she wearing a white onesie underneath? It looks as though the model is too, but the dress looks chic on the model.

    • alyce1213

      Exquisite dress (although I wish she’d kept the front closed), WRONG venue.

    • warnerave

      she looks good, but he looks uncomfortable in that suit, altho he is fine too…

    • jetpackdino

      This looks like something a stripper would wear to a funeral.

    • guest2visits

      Ridiculously high slit and visible under-roos. Ruined the look of the dress.
      He’s either shrinking or his big hat is getting bigger. I do not like the light suit on him.

    • bd73

      fact: her husband is a stone fox.

    • Toto Maya

      What a mess.

    • demidaemon

      When your husband has outdressed you and he is wearing a cowboy hat, it is time to reassess.

    • Fatima Siddique

      This looks so sloppy. Isn’t she one of the country music’s biggest names? Who let her show up looking like this? Fire your stylist.

    • Krysta

      HAAAATE center-slit skirts, they always look like they’re on sideways. But her shoes might be kickass.

    • ccm800

      handsome people.

    • librarygrrl64

      The definition of tacky.
