Here are my picks for the 2014 CMT Awards Best Dressed, designer details & all, ENJOY!
Bold and standout colors rule this CMT red carpet. And Jana’s hot pink Michael Costello # definitely sets the trend. The plunging neckline and flowing train make Jana look like a sexy glam princess and I love it! To complete her exquisite look are some glam diamond jewelry pieces — L’Dezen bracelet, Jacob and Co. drop earrings, and Le Vian rings. And it’s very hard to overlook just how beautiful Jana looks, amazing makeup job by Kelsey Deenihan & from stylist Lo VonRumpf.
KELLIE PICKLER — It’s always great to see the red carpet brightened with splashes of color. The black and white #’s are nice and all, but bold colors, such as Kellie’s choice with this Lorena Sarbu column gown, with side cutouts and a plunging neckline, is perfection. The color of the gown is very close to the Pantone 2014 Color of the Year — radiant orchid. Paired perfectly with this purple orchid hue are some lovely silver & shimmery accessories — Thale Blanc clutch & TACORI jewelry (diamond earrings & a ring).
I love this new type of look for Miranda on the red carpet. I’ve seen full on glam and sparkling mini’s, but this taupe Celia Kritharioti mini is sort of a combo of both. It’s got some glam and sex appeal with all of the amazing details to pull together the look — plunging neckline, embellishments, gold belt, and sheer shoulders. Miranda also does no wrong in the accessories dept. either — stunning silver Manolo Blahnik sandal heels, coordinating taupe Tyler Alexandra clutch, and diamond jewelry from both Yeprem and Djula (earrings and rings).
KIMBERLY PERRY — Sexy and simple white frocks is yet another trend on the CMT red carpet and Kimberly is definitely the trendsetter for this style. This spaghetti strapped ruffled mini is a stunner!
Keeping with the ever-popular trend of the night, another white dress, fitted & sexy, with sheer panels at the neckline — looks great!!
So sad that Brooklyn’s show FWBL is now off the air, but very happy to see that such sad and bad news doesn’t hold her back from rocking the red carpet! White dresses were all the rage on the CMT red carpet and Brooklyn falls right in line with making this look work with a feminine and ladylike Jill Stuart knee-length dress. It is available for purchase on Shopbop. It’s a simplistically chic look for the evening’s festivities and keeping that in mind, she continues the style to her accessories, going black with classic pumps from Manolo Blahnik and Kendra Scott drop earrings.
LUKE & CAROLINE BRYAN
My CMT red carpet best dressed list would not be complete without the presence of this dynamic duo’s red carpet consistency. They always look great, super sexy, and in sync. I’m glad to see this knockout pair grace my list yet again!
MARY SARAH — I can’t lie — I’m not very familiar with Mary, but I will figure that out later. For my best dressed lists, I don’t care who you are, if you look great, you will make my list; it’s all about the style! Mary did great by seemingly taking a bit from 2 major trends of the night — keeping with a white dress, but adding at least the bold splash of color with her ankle-strapped heels.
Love seeing a little something different on the red carpet and for me, that is Danielle — crop top look, very popular trend right now, fun printed skirt, just overall a very youthful look for this country darling!
TYE STRICKLAND & MELISSA RYCROFT
Another stunning red carpet duo, simplistically minimalistic looks and quite fitting for the night!
Another quick red carpet shout-out, 2014 Glamour Women of the Year Awards —
Alexa looks majorly chic in this Christian Dior dress with a sheer embroidered bodice from the brand’s Resort 15 collection.
