The 2009 CMA Awards: Top 5 Best Dressed

Who were country music’s queens of couture at the 43rd annual CMA Awards? Here are Lovetripper’s picks for the evening’s top frocks:

1) The event proved to be a golden moment for crossover cutie Taylor Swift, both in her career and in her choice of clothing. America’s sweetheart accented her “Fearless” frock with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, and a pair of Louboutins carried her onstage for her four wins.

2) The title of Sugarland’s third CD may be “Love on the Inside,” but the Luisa Beccaria creation vocalist Jennifer Nettles wore on the red carpet lets us love what’s on the outside as well.

4) Quick change artist Carrie Underwood donned a total of nine designs as co-host of the awards show, starting with a silver vision from the Theia label which she wore for her red carpet arrival. From her array of attire, this dazzling mini– seen later on in the evening– is the winner in our style showdown.
