academy of country music awards 2011


Taylor Swift, Nicole Kidman and Carrie Underwood are mainstays on the country red carpet, and the 2011 Academy of Country Music Awards was no exception. Taylor Swift was stunning in a pale yellow Elie Saab gown. It had delicate, lace-like accoutrements that made it deliciously feminine. Nicole Kidman attended to support her husband, Keith Urban, and the usually classic beauty decided to go a little edgy. She chose a short, tight, L’Wren Scott black python dress that showed off her assets amazingly. It had a slit down the front, which added to the sexiness, and the furry bolero she put over it took it to another level. Carrie Underwood usually looks divine on the red carpet, but she arrived in an ensemble that was a bit of a letdown. She wore a Jean Fares Couture dress that had a vibrant purple color and beautiful embellishments, but it was a little shapeless and didn’t flatter her figure in any way. Carrie was bound to score a miss after a string of hits however. She’ll no doubt be on her game at the next red carpet event.
