With the CMAs just a few weeks away, local Nashvillians are either planning viewing parties for the TV broadcast or transportation to the event itself. Food will be eaten, stars will be cheered, and plenty of cocktails will be had- it’s all just too exciting to bear. But what people might not be thinking about is the fashion aspect of the CMAs, the amazing dresses that will be making their way down the red carpet on November 6, 2013.
2012 was a great year for CMA fashion. Many local celebrities stepped out in show-stopping gowns that proved the sophistication of Nashville style. Sure, we’re no Hollywood, but that’s just because we don’t take ourselves as seriously!
Some of the best looks of 2013 Award shows belonged to Carrie Underwood, Hayden Panetierre, Miranda Lambert, and Taylor Swift. This year, we can expect the same degree of sophistication from our favorite celebrities, but perhaps with the incorporation of some of fall’s hottest trends. Think cutouts or exposed backs, color blocking, and rich hues like emerald green. We should also expect to see some celebrities sporting their newly evolved looks. Hayden Panettiere has been going more glamorous on the red carpet these days, as can be seen with this gorgeous, pale pink Roberto Cavalli gown at the 2013 Golden Globes. Taylor Swift has been showing much more maturity in her fashion choices, especially at the 2013 People’s Choice Awards- just look at that plunging neckline! But it’s Carrie Underwood, co-host of the CMA Awards again this year, who will be the most buzzed-about celebrity on the red carpet. She always looks fantastic, and I can’t wait to see what she puts together to host this year!
