CMT Music Awards 2013 Carpet Fashion

CMT Music Awards 2013 Carpet Fashion

Country music’s biggest stars were out in force at the 2013 CMT Music Awards held at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee on Wednesday June 5, 2013.
Jason Aldean and Kristen Bell disappointed some in the media as hosts. It was said that Jason Aldean and Lenny Kravitz had so many screaming guitars; you wouldn’t have guessed it was a country show!

The real winners of the night are those who rocked the red purple carpet in sequins, feathers, cowboy boots and hats in all their CMT country glory. The blonde bombshells (and a few brunettes) of country music and Hollywood cranked up the glam a notch when they hit the runway carpet. Taylor Swift glittered in her nude Elie Saab gown, Carrie Underwood tantalized in a Georges Chakra teal two-piece and most stars on parade opted for pale frocks with AnnaSophia Robb stunning in a pink lace halter gown scattered with crystals from Georges Chakra.
Lenny Kravitz arrived looking more rock star than country star whilst “Cruise” Rapper Nelly looked slightly uncomfortable on the red carpet before joining Florida Georgia Line for their smash hit performance as countless country stars gathered in the week of the CMA Festival celebrations.

Kristen Bell - The “House of Lies” actress and CMT co-host was keen to show off her post-baby body since giving birth to her daughter Lincoln, her first child with fiancé Dax Shepard, in March.

She kept her accessories minimal by opting for a silver cuff bracelet, and then finished with metallic heels and a partially pulled back hairstyle.
Like any glamorous hostess, Bell changed her wardrobe multiple times throughout the night. She put her hair up and exposed some cleavage in a low-cut, black column gown.

Nicole Kidman – After a whirlwind trip to the Cannes Film she was back stateside with hubby Keith Urban. The “Stoker” actress donned a cute sleeveless LBD with a drop-waist from the Christian Dior Fall 2013 collection.

Taylor Swift - The “22" CMT Music Awards performer rocked a Gatsby-inspired cream strapless Elie Saab Spring 2013 embellished dress with a rise-and-fall hemline. To mix things up she wore Jimmy Choo ‘Fauna’ booties (image)

Her pinned back hairstyle provided the perfect non-committal way to try out a shorter 'do for summer, while still keeping her locks long.
Cat eyes, a soft nude lip colour instead of the expected red but with her signature red nails and a simple updo completed her look.

She was also to hit the stage for her performance song “Red” in a custom corseted dress and shorts.
