The 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards was April 7th, 2013 at MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Of course, many of country music’s brightest stars debuted their latest and newest singles. Performances at the special event included Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton, Hunter Hayes, Kelly Clarkson, Lady Antebellum and The Band Perry. All of the performances were amazing, but who dressed the best? I have created my top 8 favorite and best dressed on the red carpet.
1. Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift is gorgeous. Look at this golden gown. It has simple jewel embellishments and fits her like a glove. This is Taylor in pure, classic elegance and this photo alone makes me want to go buy a dress just like this one!
2. Jana Kramer
Jana Kramer comes in a very close second. She looks like an Egyptian Princess archetype and I love the golden shimmer!
3. Luke Bryan and Caroline Boyer
Host Luke Bryan and Caroline Boyer look like classic Hollywood and lit the fire at the ACM Awards.
4. Kimberly Perry
Not everyone could pull this look off: all white, silver shine and a skirt beneath, but Kimberly Perry nailed it and she looks amazing. I love that she is showing-off her toned legs.
5. Kacey Musgraves
Musgraves looks beautiful in her precious white princess dress with minimal poof and feathers.
6. Ashley Jones
Actress Ashley Jones’s makes number 6 on my list with her one-shouldered, blue gown.
7. Shawana Thompson
I am not sure if she was going for the seductive vamp look, but it works!
8. Cassadee Pope
Last but not least, a simple, but cute, grey-silver beaded dress and elegant shoe worn by Cassadee Pope.
These ladies really showed their style at The 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards.
