"You can dress to kill....whatever makes you feel like a rock star"

Hello lovelies! 

One thing I love ALMOST as much as fashion is country music. So you can probably imagine my excitement when two of my favorite things were brought together Sunday night at the Academy of Country Music Awards (ACMs)! I LOVE checking out the Red Carpet fashion so I thought I would share with you my selections for the best (and worst) dressed!!!

It’s inevitable: whenever Carrie Underwood is on the Red Carpet she is going to ALWAYS look GORGEOUS! So naturally to start my Best Dressed list I will begin with Carrie who wore a gown by Abed Mahfouz and shoes by Oscar de la Renta. It was simply elegant but had that slit up the side that added some hotness!!

Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland took the color blocking and bright colors trend for spring to the Red Carpet in her self-described “watermelon Jolly Rancher” Max Azria Atelier gown. I loved the color combination of pink with neon yellow. This was definitely one of my favorites of the night.

My final pick for Best Dressed was Nicole Kidman (wife of country music superstar Keith Urban). I think she is probably one of the most beautiful women in general and last night was no exception! Her black L’Wren Scott gown was also on point with the spring trend of longer hemlines in skirts and dresses. Not to mention those red strappy L’Wren Scott sandals…red + black is always a great classic color combination!

To me one of the worst dressed stars of the evening was Leann Rimes. The Stella McCartney dress she wore has actually been worn by other celebrities in different color combinations but this dress just does not scream “Red Carpet” to me. I just don’t like the mesh paneling of the dress at all and think she could’ve done SO much better!

I just don’t feel like it’s right to end this post on that picture of Leann Rimes, so I’m going  to instead include my first ever Best Dressed MAN in my blog!!! Of course the award goes to the one and only Kenny Chesney. Last night he performed a new song with Tim Mcgraw (pictured on the left) that was the inspiration for the title of this post. He wore his classic straw cowboy hat, cut off tank top, tight jeans and cowboy boots. However if I’m being honest I don’t care one single bit what he wears; he has been and always will be my favorite country music artist for obvious reasons:

So who did you all think was the best and worst dressed of the ACMs?! Leave me a comment & share your thoughts!!!
