The Country Music Awards happened on Thursday night, and surprise! Taylor Swift didn’t win a thing! I know that’s probably technically against the awards show rules or something, but nevertheless, the show did go on. Miranda Lambert and her Voice hubby Blake Shelton were big winners, and so was Willie Nelson who received the first-ever Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award. We’re guessing he was probably stoned.

And with that in mind, we decided to take a look at some of the night’s biggest fashion winners and losers.

Left: Lisa Marie Presley channels the dark side. Right: Kellie Pickler manges to work it, even with a shaved head (she shaved her head in solidarity with a friend who was going through chemotherapy).


Left: Kim Perry, of The Band Perry, came straight from her role as an extra in The Carrie Diaries. Right: Kim Schlapman’s dress is making me nauseous.


Left: Do you watch Pretty Little Liars? I’m obsessed with Lucy Hale’s eyebrows, but perplexed as to why she’s at the CMAS. Right: Carrie Underwood’s pretty dress is totally getting upstaged by her husband Mike Fisher’s bangs.

Left: Oh, just give all the fashion awards to Faith Hill, already. Right: Shawn Johnson could certainly use her help.

lauren_alaina_taylor_swift_Left: American Idol also-ran Lauren Alaina is all growed up in red. Right: Taylor Swift’s new album is called Red and we’re pretty sure she’s contractually obligated to wear the color at all public appearances.
