The Country Music Awards used to be synonymous with big hair and debutante ball gowns. Perhaps, it’s the proliferation of celebrity stylists and the democratization of fashion, but now everyone knows how to look appropriately, high fashion fancy! Of course, there’s nothing democratic about the designs that the girls turned in at last night’s ceremony. There were sorbet colors, a bit of black and some lace.

Julianne Hough has a dancer body and so that means she can wear just about anything, but this Randi Rahm gown in a spicy color was a good fit. Plus, her gold accessories were lovely and I love when a girl shows off her shoulders. Is that weird?
It's not often you see someone who isn't a willowy willow (read: stick thin) wearing Victoria Beckham, but Brooklyn Decker proves the body con look can be totally demure on some curves. Plus, that color is just so right now and she kept it minimal, which is perfect.
Nicole Kidman followed the Wynona Judd take on red carpet dressing and wore black leather, by L'Wren Scott. It's a bit hard edged compared to all that pretty lightness, but she still looks good.
I normally fully support Carrie Underwood, but this purple Jean Fares Couture gown does not a thing for her lithe little figure. Not my fave, it's bunchy and has weird embellishment.
Taylor Swift is wearing a gown from the Elie Saab Spring Couture collection that just won't quit in its amazingness. You may recognize another of the gowns from this collection on Mila Kunis at the Oscars because that was also gorgeous. The yellow looks good, and I love it paired with a red lip.
Reese Witherspoon in lacey Marchesa is pretty, but I'm not blown away. Maybe it's the boring hair?
