The Academy of Country Music Awards are the biggest event in the country music calender and stars Nicole Kidman, Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood didn't disappoint when it came to working those red carpet dresses.
Carrie Underwood's one-shoulder Basil Soda dress was a nude-hued delight which Underwood toughened up with a studded clutch bag. The singer made music history as she became the first female singer to win Entertainer of the Year at the Country Music Awards twice – once in 2009 and also this year.
Taylor Swift wowed in a romantic blue Marchesa gown with floral embellishment. Despite being nominated for five awards Taylor went home empty handed.
Nicole Kidman kept things slinky in a tuxedo-inspired L'Wren Scott dress with her long, strawberry blonde locks in a half-up half-down do. Hubby Keith Urban was equally smart in suit and skinny tie.
Kristen Bell of Forgetting Sarah Marshall fame went for the bodycon look in this body-skimming skinny bandage dress by Max Azria for Herve Leger.
Camila Alves was all about elegant glamour in a floor-skimming indigo gown with thigh-high split and a golden cuff. She was joined by boyfriend Matthew McConaughey who looked cool in a tux and open-necked shirt.
