Taylor Swift, Musicians
Taylor Swift, who typically sparkles at red carpet events, lost a little bit of her luster in a far from fabulous frock, flat 'do, and snooze-inducing shoes
LeAnn Rimes, Musicians
Controversial presenter LeAnn Rimes strutted her stuff (sans Eddie Cibrian!) in an edgy gray mini and sexy gladiator booties. Unfortunately, her hair and makeup were a tad severe.
Awards Shows, Couples
Nicole Kidman looked awful in a doily-like lace frock and clunky red heels, while her nominated hubby Keith Urban broke out his customary gray-and-black threads for the star-studded soiree.
Gwyneth Paltrow, Awards Shows
Making her CMA debut, Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow -- who will soon be seen on the big screen in "Country Strong" -- looked flawless from the neck up, but her "Skating with the Stars"-esque dress was a dud.
Leighton Meester, Award Shows
Gwynnie's "Country Strong" co-star Leighton Meester brought her fashion-forward sense of style from the NYC set of "Gossip Girl" to Nashville. Did she outshine the other stars in attendance?
Musicians, Awards Shows
Lady Antebellum's Dave Haywood, Hillary Scott, and Charles Kelley classed up the joint in award show-worthy attire, which made them the best-dressed band of the evening.
Kid Rock, Musicians
Kid Rock never gets gussied up, so it's no surprise that he showed up for the CMAs in a painfully casual Jim Beam tee and festive bootcut jeans.
Sheryl Crow, Musicians
Kid Rock's former flame Sheryl Crow, 48, put women half her age to shame in her ombre one-shoulder gown and gorgeous golden locks.
Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton
Country couple Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton -- who were both nominated for multiple awards -- played it safe on the red carpet in looks that failed to impress. Luckily the talented twosome wasn't the worst-dressed duo of the night.
Kellie Pickler, Musicians
Another singer who went glam was Kellie Pickler, who made the mistake of pairing her paillette-covered dress with Farrah Fawcett-like locks and pale-pink makeup, resulting in an age-inappropriate look for the 24-year-old.
Billy Ray Cyrus, Musicians
Newly single Billy Ray Cyrus sported his signature soul patch along with several accessories including unnecessary aviators, three ridiculous rings, and a streaky mullet.
Julianne Hough, Musicians
Julianne Hough -- who recently went from blonde to brunette -- walked the red carpet in a tattered, trash bag-like gown, which resembled one of her chintzy "Dancing With the Stars" costumes.
Darius Rucker, Musicians
2009's Best New Artist Darius Rucker looked more like a funeral director than a country music star in his black suit and navy shirt.
Kristian Bush, Jennifer Nettles
Although he donned his signature fedora, Kristian Bush was overshadowed by Sugarland sidekick Jennifer Nettles, who wore an elegant watercolor gown and unfortunate eye makeup.
Martina McBride, Musicians
Is it just us, or did Martina McBride wrap herself up in a roll of tin foil and call it a day?
Musicians, Awards Shows
Little Big Town's Phillip Sweet, Kimberly Schlapman, Karen Fairchild, and Jimi Westbrook appeared to be headed to an '80s prom, not "country music's biggest night"!
Katherine Heigl, Josh Kelley
Former "Grey's Anatomy" star Katherine Heigl donned a regal, royal blue gown, sapphire baubles, and a matronly updo, while her singer-songwriter hubby, Josh Kelley, opted for a perfectly tailored three-piece suit and some scruff.
Gretchen Wilson, Musicians
Self-proclaimed "redneck woman" Gretchen Wilson opted for comfort over class in a knit sweater dress and thigh-high suede boots.
Luke Bryan, Musicians
New Artist of the Year nominee Luke Bryan, whose best known for his hit "Rain Is a Good Thing," donned an all black ensemble, while his wife Caroline looked like a cast member of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" in her plunging gown, deep tan, and dyed 'do.
Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Awards
Brad Paisley's main squeeze, actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley, proudly popped a pose in a satin turquoise prom bomb, which -- we must admit -- perfectly matched her beautiful blue eyes.
Musicians, Awards Shows
Joe Don Rooney, Jay DeMarcus, and Gary LeVox (of Rascal Flatts fame) once again embarrassed themselves in outfits -- and haircare -- fit for Vegas lounge singers.
Laura Bell Bundy, Musicians
"Giddy On Up" songstress Laura Bell Bundy channeled Old Hollywood in a glittering belted gown, loose locks, and red lips.
Jake Owen, Musicians
"Tell Me" crooner Jake Owen was business on the top and party on the bottom in his disjointed getup.
Sara Evans, Musicians
Sara Evans -- who won her first CMA trophy in 2001 -- kept her cute physique under cover in a mini muumuu, which allowed her to showcase her orange-tinted gams.
Dierks Bentley, Musicians
Male Vocalist of the Year nominee Dierks Bentley suited up well and delivered his smoldering smirk.
Carrie Underwood, Award Shows
CMA hostess with the mostest Carrie Underwood, who donned a number of ensembles throughout the evening, started things off on the wrong foot thanks to her steel gray eyesore, which featured multiple tiers and a bizarre rosette.
