Here’s our recap of all the red carpet fashion from the ACM Awards!

Taylor Swift in a J. Mendel gown, with cutouts and gold metallic accents.  Accessorized with Lorraine Schwartz jewels, and Christian Louboutin shoes.  While this was the standout gown on the red carpet, we wish Taylor would have done something a little different with her hair; with the bangs and half-waves she looks like a little girl trying on her older sister’s prom dress.  She should have tried something a little more stylized, and a sleek ponytail would have really augmented the chic look of the gown.

Carrie Underwood in Abed Mahfouz

Carrie Underwood in a strapless Abed Mahfouz gown.  If Carrie Underwood was any less adorable, she wouldn’t be able to pull this off.  The beading, the color, the sheerness of the fabric and the slit up the leg is all a little too prom-y for me.  And Carrie does this all the time.  It would be great to see her in something a little less formulaic.

Aside from Taylor’s gown, Miranda Lambert was my other favorite of the night.  She wore a Randi Rahm gold halter.  The detail of the dress stylized the gold enough to keep it from looking like a pure explosion, and I thought the look was perfect for a Vegas red carpet.  I don’t know if it was intentional, but it looked like her stylist misplaced a huge lowlight in the front that looks obviously out of place.  Other than that, Miranda hit it out of the park!

Nicole Kidman in L’Wren Scott.  Although the original look was a full length gown (which we actually liked better), we’re glad that Nicole chose the knee length look in a different fabric, as a shiny satin could have looked too costume-y.  We do wish however, that she’d done something a little more Vegas in this look, like some sparkly shoes or cooler hair to keep the look edgier, instead of prissy.

The original L’Wren Scott look.

05 LeAnn Rimes ACM Awards Dotty Dress: Love It or Hate It?

Oh, LeAnn, LeAnn.  Do we give you a pass on your narcisstic personality because you grew up a child star?  Is it ever acceptable to post an obnoxiously posed glam shot as a “candid” picture on twitter?  Anyways, LeAnn wore a Stella McCartney dress with Christian Louboutin shoes and a sunburst bag.  The hair is a little 90s for my taste (but, that was probably LeAnn’s peak so we’ll give her a pass).  I love those shoes, but don’t think they are appropriate for the red carpet.  In fact, we wish the whole look was a little more glamorous.

What do you guys think? Any hates or faves?  Let us know!
