Although the sky's the limit in country music fashion — a world that bred Dolly Parton and gospel like, "The higher the heel, the closer to God" — the red carpet at yesterday's CMT Music Awards felt relatively tame (with a few exceptions). Country wife Nicole Kidman showed off a demure Dior dress, accented with sculpted heels, Taylor Swift opted for subdued sparkle in an Elie Saab sheath, while the industry's reigning queen, Carrie Underwood, skipped a gown in favour of a teal, sparkled shorts suit from Editions by Georges Chakra's Spring '13 collection.

Every year the CMT Awards bring out the best and brightest in country music, which also means all the industry's top blondes are present. Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, and Nicole Kidman were all spotted on the red carpet earlier this week. While we usually expect over-the-top styles (you know what they say: "the bigger the hair, the closer to heaven"), this year the looks were surprisingly more subdued.

Kristen Bell hit the red carpet alongside fiancé Dax Shepard for the CMT Awards in Nashville, Tennessee today. This is Kristen's first public appearance since giving birth to daughter Lincoln in March, and she made sure to show off her post-baby figure in a short leather dress and sky-high heels. Kristen is back hosting the show for the second time with country singer Jason Aldean — the new mum seemed excited to hit the stage and took to Twitter to share photos of her script, and her practical "new backstage beauty routine."
Also on the red carpet for the big show were Taylor Swift, Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood, who posed sweetly with her hockey-player husband Mike Fisher. Carrie will be hitting the stage to perform a tribute to the Oklahoma tornado victims. She will be accompanied by a full choir, as well as photos of the aftermath from the devastating storm that hit her home state late last month.
The 48th annual Academy of Country Music Awards provided the perfect "excuse" for a little glamour yesterday, especially where Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood were concerned. Both singers chose floor-length creations for the occasion, but that's where the similarities ended.

Underwood stuck to her red carpet MO with a bright floral-print strapless gown by Naeem Khan, coral chandelier earrings, and a black clutch. We're leaving it to you to decide who earned best-dressed status!
