Best Dressed, A Little Country Style

So mainly this Best Dressed list is comprised of looks from the 2015 CMT Music Awards. But I have a couple of other looks that I wanted to include on this list as well from other red carpet functions, ENJOY!

Danielle Bradbery


Danielle is dazzling in this molten, embellished Patricia Bonaldi mini. She is sparkling and shining all over!



Carrie Underwood

Carrie is working her post-baby bod in this Thomas Wylde mini, showing off her legendary gorgeous stems! She accessorized with silver Jimmy Choo heels, a metallic Deepa Gurnani clutch, and Kimberly McDonald jewelry.

Jenna Dewan Tatum


Jenna looks lovely in this magenta Zuhair Murad dress laced with peekaboo panels. The details here are quite exquisite. She paired with her look an oxblood clutch and Neil Lane jewelry. Her styling, as always, was by Brad Goreski.

Cassadee Pope


Peekaboo lace panels was a fave of mine, clearly! Cassadee too looks amazing in her lace paneling look, but hers was an antique-looking, golden mini by Mikael D. Coordinating with her look was a shiny silver Swarovski clutch.

Her styling was provided by Townsend Style and Fashion Forwards LA.



RaeLynn’s look was quite bold, but I was definitely intrigued. This multi-colored, brightly printed Gabriela Cadena dress is stunningly gorgeous. It’s hard to take your eyes off of it!

Rumer Willis


Rumer kept it simple, very minimalistic, but in a great way. It’s not always about the bells & whistles! Her stark white, fitted dress was from House of CB. And she paired with her look lavender Stuart Weitzman heels, a metallic Salvatore Ferrgamo clutch, and Doves jewels.

Hunter Hayes


Hunter Hayes looked quite handsome, rockin’ his grey suit, sans tie. He is also wearing an Omega watch.

The Swon Brothers


The Swon Brothers were quite the dapper pair, dressed in all black, quite casual, but great pieces for their looks. I was a huge fan of theirs on NBC’s The Voice so I am happy to see them doing so well!

Florida Georgia Line


Florida Georgia Line was another good lookin’ pair on the CMT red carpet. Not coordinating like the Swon Brothers, but each gent doing his own thing, having his own style.

Bella Thorne


So my first non-country Best Dressed pick was the beautiful Bella. She was attending her new MTV show’s premiere in L.A., Scream. Her luscious side waves were courtesy of Neutrogena. She donned a sexy black Mugler dress, paired perfectly with black Stuart Weitzman heels and XIV Karats jewelry.

Anna Faris


Anna was too rockin’ a sexy mini, her pick, a shades of silver, embellished Rubin Singer dress. Her accessories were a metallic Jimmy Choo clutch and matching mule sandals. She was attending the premiere of Jurassic World in Hollywood.

2014 CMT Awards — Best Dressed on the Red Carpet

Here are my picks for the 2014 CMT Awards Best Dressed, designer details & all, ENJOY!


165_3091_350   JANA KRAMER


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.




165_3098_350                           kellie-pickler-290


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).


2014 CMT Music Awards - Arrivals


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!!


brooklyn-decker-white-dress-cmt-music-awards-2014-h724                    BROOKLYN DECKER


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.


2014 CMT Music Awards - Arrivals





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!





Another stunning red carpet duo, simplistically minimalistic looks and quite fitting for the night!
