The 2019 CMT Awards are near, with country’s biggest stars set to descend upon Nashville, Tenn., on June 5 for the show. As fans eagerly await this year’s CMT Awards, FN looks back at what celebrities wore on the red carpet a decade ago.
While Taylor Swift’s music sits squarely in the pop category these years, the “White Horse” singer was a rising country star in 2009. The then-19-year-old dazzled on the red carpet in a sparkly Collette Dinnigan minidress and strappy Prada heels. She picked up four awards at the show, winning Entertainer of the Year, Female of the Year, Album of the Year (“Fearless”) and Music Video of the Year (“Love Story”). Swift has a chance to add to her CMT total this year, as she’s nominated for two awards: Collaborative Video (“Babe”) and Duo Video (“Babe).
Another famous face in attendance? Julianne Hough. The dancer, who was 20 years old at the time, looked spring-ready in a pastel pink minidress from the Jenny Packham spring ’09 collection. Nude ankle-strap heels completed her sugary-sweet look.
Elsewhere, model Karolina Kurkova looked chic in a little black blazer dress. For shoes, she went with black booties on a stiletto heel. The star was pregnant with her first child at the time.
