Maren Morris Takes the Plunge in an Edgy Leather Corset Dress and Thong Heels at ACM Awards

Maren Morris hit the red carpet in edgy fashion in Las Vegas at the 2022 Academy of Country Music Awards.

The Grammy Award-winning musician stepped out with husband Ryan Hurd, wearing a vintage Dior dress from the year 2000, designed by John Galliano. Composed of tan leather, her dress featured an asymmetric front with a deep neckline and lace-up corset bodice. Adding to her look’s edge was a similarly asymmetric skirt that included pockets, which was attached to Morris’ dress’ back by a string of gold buttons. Similar buttons connected her dress’ top and straps as well, creating a cut-and-sew appearance. Large gold hoop earrings finished Morris’ look.

For footwear, Morris strapped into a pair of tan ankle-wrap sandals. The lace-up style featured an array of thin straps in asymmetric, toe, thong and slingback placements. The pair culminated in straps wrapping around Morris’ ankles, similarly to trending silhouettes that provide a sultry vibe and ankle support. Her footwear, which created a sleek monochrome look, was complete with square-toed soles and slightly flared heels totaling 3-4 inches in height.
