Kelsea Ballerini is serving full country music star glamour on the red carpet tonight in Los Angeles for the 2023 Grammy Awards. This year, Ballerini is nominated for Best Country Solo Performance for her song “Heartfelt.
For music’s biggest night, Ballerini wore a vibrant yellow dress by Prabal Gurung. The piece incorporates 40 layers of tulle and features a crisscross neckline, a cutout at the center, an extreme thigh-high side slit and ruffled detailing on the hem.
To place more emphasis on her look, the songwriter accessorized with Brilliant Earth jewelry including diamond stud earrings and several midi rings. Ballerini slicked her hair back into a bun. For glam, she went with a soft smokey eye and a bold red lip.
Completing the musician’s ensemble was a pair of matching sandals by Stuart Weitzman. The silhouette had a strap across the toe and a chunky outsole.
Strappy sandals are certainly having their moment and continue to steal the spotlight this year. The sultry style has made many celebrities ditch comfort for their counterpart. With signature interlaced straps varying from barely there to maximalist-like styles, lace-up sandals are evidently the tried-and-true shoe of the season.
“Heartfelt” is the first single from Ballerini’s fourth studio album “Subject to Change.” The album also features a collaboration with Kelly Clarkson and Carly Pearce on the song “You’re Drunk, Go Home.”
The 2023 Grammy Awards, which airs live at 8 p.m. ET on CBS, honors excellence and outstanding achievement in the music industry.
