Red-Carpet Recap: 2011 Academy of Country Music Awards
Country crooners flocked to Las Vegas last night to attend the 2011 Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards.
Some of the night's most notable looks included those of Julianne Hough (who proved a pop of color in a tangerine Randi Rahm halter gown with allover floral embroidering and a sexy, exposed back), "Entertainer of the Year" winner Taylor Swift (who showed off her softer side in a pastel yellow Elie Saab gown with a lace overlay featuring intricate beading and chiffon, flower appliques along the neckline and hem) and Carrie Underwood (who looked vibrant in a violet-hued Jean Fares Couture gown with floral appliques along what appeared to be hidden pockets). While I loved the rich hue and girly details on Carrie's gown, I don't think the loose fit or style did anything for her athletic figure (especially in the chest area).
Reese Witherspoon wore a tulle and lace bandage-style sweetheart dress from Marchesa, which I loved but thought could have used a little more definition. Not surprisingly, Nicole Kidman opted for a snakeskin-leather L'Wren Scott bodice, which featured a built-in boa around the neck. While I didn't HATE her dress, I would've liked to have seen it paired with a more direct shoe, and not a dainty peep-toe.
