The 48th annual Academy of Country Music Awards recently took place, and even though the night is meant to honor the best in this genre, the style worn by country crooners certainly stole the show. Gorgeous singers like Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert proved country gals know how to go glam
First on the list of best dressed at the April 7 event is the stunning crossover singer Taylor Swift. Swift has had a bit more practice in dressing high fashion than her other peers at the event, and she nailed her heavy metal ensemble.
Swift dazzled in a fitted fully embroidered floor-length gown that was covered in bold silver sequins as well as metal hardware that gave the G-rated singer a major edge. The gorgeous frock also boasted necklace-like detailing on the neckline and a tighter bodice, working to show off Swift's slender frame.
The beautiful blonde enhanced her look even further thanks to the perfect makeup. Swift stole the show with her eyes – she opted for a stunning smokey eye style wearing metallic silver eyeshadow on her top lids to the crease lines and a darker charcoal hue in the creases. She then rimmed her lids in midnight blue eyeliner for a dramatic and ultra chic style. Since her eyes were so wild, Swift kept the rest of her looks modest – a touch of peach product on her cheeks and nude lipstick on her perfect pout worked well with the singer's entire look.
Next up on the best dressed at the ACM Awards is the always breathtaking Carrie Underwood. The "American Idol" alum dazzled in a gorgeous floral gown that had pops of black for a grown-up touch. The crooner strutted her stuff in the designer gown, which boasted a sweetheart neckline, thick black silk belt at her waist and a full skirt that hid her killer legs. Underwood accessorized with a simple, black envelope clutch, a black stone pinky ring and her giant rock of an engagement ring. She kept her blonde locks up in an easy and somewhat wild style.
Even though Underwood's major dress garnered much of the attention, her stunning makeup looked effortless and perfect as well. The singer rocked a similar look to Swift, opting for smokey eye makeup and a light lipstick. However, Underwood went a bit darker with her eyes – pairing deep charcoal shadow with black for a stand-out style. She added a drop of cream shadow at her inner corners to soften the look, and swiped on tons of mascara on her top and bottom lashes to accentuate her peepers. Underwood wore peach product on her cheeks and a gold shimmering gloss on her pout for the right amount of shine.
Crooner Miranda Lambert not only took home plenty of awards during the ACM Awards, she also stunned thanks to her unconventional LBD and her stunning makeup. People magazine reports the singer, who is married to the show's co-host Blake Shelton, showed off her curves in a form-fitting black dress.
The frock was a far cry from the ball gowns worn by the other country cuties on the list, but was no less stylish. Another major plus was her gorgeous makeup. Hollywood Life selected Lambert as the star with the best makeup at the show and offered tips for recreating the style at home.
Lambert brought the sparkle – rocking shimmering silver shadow up to the crease lines on her top lids. She then added tons of drama wearing black eyeliner out past her brow lines for a true cat-eye finish. The singer added a girlie touch to her pout with the addition of a light pink lipstick and lip gloss combo.
