If you’re looking for a little glitz and glamour to kick-start your day, may we direct you to the red carpet from last night’s Country Music Awards (CMAs)? The event clearly brought out the sartorial best in country music’s biggest stars.
Take Miranda Lambert, who became the most decorated female artist in the association’s history while wearing three form-fitting numbers: a sleek white-sleeved frock, a black strappy flapper number and a sparkly pink gown.
Then there was host Carrie Underwood who accentuated her baby bump in solid gold (before co-host Brad Paisley spilled the beans that she's having a boy!).
If there was one trend to be seen, it would have been sophistication. Gone are the days when country music could be associated with offbeat nails and hair out to there (save for Kacey Musgraves' massive 'do). Last night, the ladies and gents looked fit for a frolic at Gatsby’s.
Who were the fête's shiniest and most stunning stars? We round up the top nine below.
