It’s time once again for the 40th or 50th country music awards ceremony of the year, darlings! We’re being bitches, because it’s not like the film and television industries don’t find dozens of reasons to hand out trophies every three weeks or so. Besides, a country music awards ceremony inevitably means Miss Nicole will be there to Hollywood the joint up a little, so we can’t complain. No, really. We know we’ve made something of a career out of complaining, but it’s all good, darlings. Nicole brought it:
While we’ve pretty much had our fill with embroidered whimsy, this dress looks gorgeous to us. She always comes alive the more color you put on her and the embroidery doesn’t overwhelm because of the way each bit is placed in its own panel. Instead of merely whimsical, it comes off ordered and colorful, making you want to peer closer at it. Her jewelry game remains on point. In fact, she doesn’t get enough credit for her history of excellent taste in jewels. And to our delight, her hair suddenly looks fabulous. It’s been a while since it has. Attagirl, Miss Nicole.
We’re not getting his giant shoes, but we appreciate the subtle polka dot of his suit. That’s fun without being over the top about it. The undone tie and cuffs is super-precious and irritating, though.
