Country Music Awards 2011: Stars Make Sweet Music On The Red Carpet

Last night's Country Music Awards mixed sparkle with twang as singers and other celebrities feted the biggest country acts of the year.

Carrie Underwood glowed in a gold gown from Reem Acra's Spring 2012 line, while Nicole Kidman went gray in a Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2011 Couture dress, although the black pumps and choker she paired it with seemed a bit off.

Laura Bell Bundy's dress stood out among the crowd with its pleated blue attached skirt, which she seemed happy to show off. Other stars, like Faith Hill and Sandra Lee, stuck with neutral colored gowns.

We noted one ubiquitous trend: many of the ladies had their hair curled and pinned half back. And in other style similarities, Taylor Swift, who won Entertainer of the Year, wore a flowing silver J. Mendel gown that looked almost identical to Leanne Rimes' dress of the same color.
