It seems like some celebrities had a hard time choosing what to wear for the 2012 Country Music Awards last week. Carrie Underwood alone changed her outfit more than 10 times!
To see all of Underwood’s looks of the night, check out these photos on Glamour. The dress above, by Alice + Olivia, was by far my favorite. The whimsical cocktail cut has a fun flared skirt paired with a sexy, fitted shimmer top — the best of both worlds. It wasn’t a custom design and is for sale online for $798.
If you are looking for a gold sequin look for less, get Nordstrom’s French Connection Sequin Sheath Minidress for $248.
To put together a look with a full white skirt, pair a long-sleeved top with Anthropologie’s Karinska Tulle Skirt for $188.
As for my favorite group of the night: I loved the leather look Little Big Town sported, especially Karen Fairchild’s flared short dress. It’s clean, biker-chic and edgy.
Trend alert! Leather has been in all year, and I’m all about it.
Faith Hill embraced a classic leather look that could be easily modified for anyone with a slender frame. A leather pant with a white blouse and flowing light-weight layer looks sleek for any occasion.
Get Faith Hill’s look for less: H&M faux leather pants, $34.95. + Ann Taylor Silk Cotton Flutter Button Down Shirt, $68. + Piperlime Basic Very Light Jersey Drapey Cardigan, $63.
Probably the most disappointing outfits of the night were worn by Taylor Swift — not because they were ugly, but because Swift wears basically the same dress to every award show — a modest pastel, cinched at the waist that flows past her knees.
