This last Wednesday, November 6th, was the 47th Annual Country Music Awards that was held in the Bridgewater Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. Along with the acknowledgement of accomplishments, there was the glitz and glamour or the red carpet, with some attendees being more glamorous than others. Being Country Music, there was an interesting mix of both casual and classic styles among the gentlemen.
First, is Tim McGraw. He opted for a trending plaid suit in beige that was a “yawner” and he tried to spiff it up with a satiny burgundy colored dress shirt, but leaving the buttons undone to his navel did not help at all. I think that if he had worked his outfit around his black “10-gallon” hat, he would have had more of a “winning” look.
The Country Music Association Awards that took place during the first week of June from Nashville Tennessee, had music performers and celebrities coming out to take part in the recognition of Country Music’s finest. As in all Red Carpet events, the CMA’s had its share of fashion “wows and woes”.
The first pair who are definitely not in the “wow” category is Lenny Kravitz and Miranda Lambert. Lenny’s choice in suit jackets makes him look like he collided with a cow! The black and white design maybe was meant to just look abstract, but all it makes me think is “Poor Bessy!” I like the retro theme of Miranda Lambert’s dress and even the colors, but the cut of the top and tightness throughout the bodice does absolutely nothing for her figure.
This next photo is of Kevin and Michael Bacon. Kevin always has his fashion sense about him and it shows with this simple ensemble of a white dress shirt, skinny black tie, and black leather jacket that is completed by a pair of fashionable specs. His counterpart, however, may be expressing his love of all things nautical with the blue, red, and white combination, but the track shoes and the bright trousers are a little too much for me. Also, they definitely look unnecessarily lamer with their eyeglasses choices. They would have fared better with pairs of Ray Ban Wayfarers or Oakley Holbrook; FYI, both are available at great prices at Red Hot Sunglasses.
The third photo from the CMA Awards is of the singer Scott McCreery in a “Dog” sandwich. “Dog the Bounty Hunter” has an interesting British tan leather jacket that is detailed with studs and texture that is paired with a simple white button-down shirt and khaki trousers. “Mrs. Dog” actually has a terrific style, deep periwinkle dress that has gathers to flatter her curvy shape and more than ample bust. Scott looks a little intimidated by her shape as he leans into the “Dog” for protection. However, it is time for The Dogs” to hunt down a new hair stylist and get rid of the bleach blonde, brittle look!
If you have ever been to Nashville, you know that there is no lack of “Cowboy” fashion. Whether you are in the restaurants, nightclubs, or just walking along the street you will see plenty of the “casual cowboy”.
One event that brings the Country Style front and center is the CMA Awards. At this year’s 46th Annual Country Music Awards, the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville was filled with Country Music’s finest performers, current fashion trends, as well as Country Style.
