Pretty Things Fashion: Country Music Awards

Even if we aren't necessarily country music fans, we still appreciate that their stars are finally stepping up and discovering designer fashion. Here, our picks for best and worst dressed at the 44th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards.

The Best...

Julianne Hough - Our pick for best dressed of the evening, Julianne looked gorgeous in this Zuhair Murad gown.

Taylor Swift - Taylor looked demure in this gorgeous hot red gown with dramatic diagonal seams by Angel Sanchez.

Reba McEntire- We love Reba and she looked amazing in this beautiful ombred purple wrap front gown, which complemented her red hair perfectly.

Carrie Underwood - Many picked Carrie in this beautiful blush coloured one-shouldered gown by Randi Rahm as their favourite for the evening...and we agree that she did look quite elegant.

LeeAnn Womack - Even though many picked LeeAnn's strapless short dress as one to put on their 'Worst Dressed' list, we liked it, but think she should have pulled her hair up and worn strappy black heels for a more elegant look.

Gloriana - Our choice for best dressed group of the evening, all of their outfits were complementary and well styled.

The Worst...

Kellie Pickler
- This Zuhair Murad gown is just all wrong...too tight, too gold and too fish tailed. And, just because one wears a super tight dress with the "girls" pushed up to the heavens doesn't mean they look hot...ask Beyonce, uhh, I mean "Sasha Fierce".

LeAnn Rimes - Her short dress with ill-placed 'origami style' folds didn't do her justice...and neither did her accesories.

Nicole Kidman - Haven't we seen her in this before? Whatever the case, this L'Wren Scott open back gown {designed by a stylist even!} doesn't do her justice...and neither does that hair style.

Little Big Town - Compared to our pick for "Best Dressed Band" this group looked like they didn't care that they were going to an awards ceremony and just threw on the first thing they could find clean in their closets. Our suggestion...Hire a stylist.

*❤* So Sorry! Taylor Swift was inadvertently left out of the poll for BEST DRESSED...if you'd like to pick her, please mark 'Others Not Mentioned'. We apologise that she was overlooked as she looked truly amazing!

I agree with ALL of your picks for best and worst dressed.
I loved Taylor Swift and Julianne Hough's dresses and I want LeAnn Womak's. Reba looked lovely too as I always picture her in jeans.
That gold monstrosity worn by Kelli Pickler HAS to go!

Taylor Swift and Reba look great in color. LeAnn Rimes looks like she'd dress any other day of the week. Boring.
