Miranda Lambert Goes Sleek in Sharp Black Dress and Strappy Sandals at 2021 CMA Awards

Miranda Lambert wore a sharp new look on the red carpet at the 2021 CMA Awards.

While arriving with husband Brendan McLoughlin, the Grammy Award-winning singer wore a long-sleeved black dress. The midi-length number featured a curved symmetrical neckline, and was cinched with a glittering black buckled belt. Lambert accessorized with orange drop earrings and a hot pink clutch.

For footwear, Lambert wore a pair of sleek strappy sandals. The style featured crossed straps and ankle straps in black leather, as well as thin toe straps. Though their heels weren’t visible, the pair presumably featured heels totaling at least 4 inches in height.

Lambert often opts for punchy footwear on the red carpet and onstage. The star regularly wears strappy sandals and pointed-toe pumps accented with details like bold colors, studs and metallic tones. These are often by top brands like Stuart Weitzman, Manolo Blahnik and Casadei, as well as independent labels like Joyce Echols.
