The focus at the CMA Awards in Nashville, Tenn., tonight may have been on honoring country music’s achievements, but the red carpet style was also attentionworthy.
Stepping out as co-host for the 11th year in a row, Carrie Underwood proved that she’s a red carpet pro. The pregnant star came clad in a form-fitting nude gown embroidered with pink and purple flowers. The stylish Uel Camilo dress, which covered Underwood’s footwear, featured a mermaid silhouette and long sleeves.
Nude-illusion gowns were in general a winner on the CMA Awards step-and-repeat. Olivia Culpo made a stylish splash in a see-through Aadnevik gown with sparkly detailing throughout. The well-dressed model completed her sultry look with embellished ankle-strap sandals that highlighted a perfect pedicure.
While skin-baring gowns worn with sandals were a common trend at the awards show, some of the best looks went in a different direction.
Kelsea Ballerini looked elegant in a custom-designed Zac Posen gown that made her look like a Disney princess. The heel-hiding dress came in a hot-pink colorway featuring elegant cap sleeves and a long train.
Male stars also pulled off stylish ensembles on the red carpet. One of the best looks on the men’s end came courtesy of TK McKamy, who opted for a millennial pink outfit from head to toe. The director — who picked up an award for best music video — sported a satiny pink suit with a pair of Gucci loafers in a slightly lighter shade.
