Country Music Gets a Style Update

Carol

Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood have officially opened my heart to country music. I can’t stop listening to “Love Story,” by Swift and “Jesus Take the Wheel” by Underwood is playing on my computer right this second (much to the collective horror of my officemates). I know what everyone’s thinking, but seriously, country music has come a long way since Dolly Parton reigned (not that I don’t love Dolly too). I think that my point was proven last night at the Academy of Country Music Awards, where nary a cowboy hat or overembellished sequin minidress was to be found. Instead, simple, stunning elegance was the order of the night. Here, my favorite looks:
