Kelsea Ballerini arrived in all-black at the 57th Academy of Country Music Awards at Allegiant Stadium on March 7 in Las Vegas.
The country-pop star appeared in full Hollywood glam in a plunging black dress with gloves to match. The dress was decorated with crystals on the bust that gave the dress a shiny touch. The textural element was much needed, as the dress was otherwise quite matte. The starlet had her hair up with some tendrils framing her face. Ballerini’s makeup is dark and smokey, matching the mood of her dress perfectly. Ballerini posed confidently before the cameras, showing off her strappy black sandal heels and a freshly done pedicure. The star is one of many to grace the red carpet. Carrie Underwood, Dolly Parton, and many more stood in her place, posing for photos. The outfit is sexy and glamorous with a little touch of sparkle that makes the dress all the more special.
The 2022 Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards, dedicated to honoring both established and emerging country music talent, will take place at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas at 7 p.m. ET.
