The 49th Annual CMA Awards kicked off with an eccentric red carpet in the capital of country music: Nashville, Tennessee. Co-host Carrie Underwood stole the spotlight in the first of 12 looks she planned for the evening with a coral-hued peplum gown, while Miranda Lambert spiced up a slinky black dress with pink highlights in her hair. See the most head-turning looks here.
We love how Carrie let her coral-hued dress do the talking and kept accessories to a minimum with a diamond cocktail ring and sleek drop earrings.
Miranda knows how to take a black evening gown to the next level: Just add pink highlights. Although this look won't work for everyone, we loved seeing her rock the playful trend on the red carpet.
Ms. Davis graced the cover of this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, so clearly she can get away with a dramatic side slit and bustier dress. We're with you Hannah—if you got it, flaunt it.
A fail-safe way to get the legs-for-miles effect is with neutral platform heels. Styling this sexy look with fresh makeup and smooth locks makes for a class act.
