This past Tuesday, December 10th, the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas hosted the 4th Annual American Country Awards for 2013. Country Music fans, as well as the entertainers, came out to see who would be recognized for their accomplishments this year and the red carpet was the place to check out the fashion. Thought was clearly put into almost everyone’s outfit, from the selection of sleek blazers – definitely saw some Armani grace the carpet! – to chic jeans to even high end accessories – we’re talking the mens Rolex watches range here!
Two guys who were embracing the shimmer and textured looks in fashion this year were Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line. Tyler had on a grey suit jacket that was interwoven with cobalt blue fabric, which helped to create its overall sheen. His look was completed with a plain black t-shirt, dark indigo jeans, and of course, the large Aviator sunglasses. Brian Kelley had the Rocker Chic look with his black, satiny jacket that had tonal reptile textured fabric on his lapels and pocket flaps. His choice of a lighter black pair of jeans made the jacket pop. Brian finishes his look with a big watch – similar to some of the Tag Formula 1 watches out there – Aviator glasses, and a great chain wallet.
Next, is someone who has always dressed to the beat of his own drum, Billy Gibbons. He is the lead guitarist in the band ZZ Top. His iconic look is achieved with his studded, black leather jacket, fingerless gloves, fringed bandana, and brown Bowler Derby. Of course, Billy would never be seen in public without his big black shades!
Another fashionable pair that stopped by the American Country Awards red carpet was HGTV’s own “Property Brothers”. Drew and Jonathan Scott showed that they are not only real estate and house rehabilitation wizards, but also have a finger on the pulse of fashion with Drew’s black leather trench coat and Jonathan’s jean-style jacket that is mixed with the black column of his shirt and pants under a grey button-down vest.
