Forget the Stetsons and cowboy boots, this year’s ACM awards were more couture than country, with stars like Nicole Kidman and Taylor Swift sporting ravishing designer dresses.
Taylor Swift, who won the coveted Entertainer of the Year award, chose two nude dresses for the big night. The first was a carpet-sweeping gown by Elie Saab couture, which she teamed with Ralph Lauren shoes and Neil Lane jewellery, and the other was a peasant-style Alice + Olivia frock for her performance on stage.
Meanwhile, Nicole Kidman accompanied her husband Keith Urban to the ceremony in a vampy lizard-stamped and fur-embellished fitted frock by her go-to designer, L’Wren Scott. Newlywedd Reese Witherspoon put in appearance in a lacy LBD by Marchesa and Southern belle Carrie Underwood was eye-catching in a plum-hued Jean Fares Couture gown with on-tone embellishment.
