The 2009 Country Music Awards sparkled with blondes, ballgowns and bling last night. Check out all the celebrity sparkle – and see how Taylor outshined them all.
Taylor Swift is having one heck of a month. As if an adoring post-Kanye public, a hunky Twilight-er for a boyfriend and a successful stint on SNL weren’t enough, the 19-year-old singing sensation swept all of her CMA categories last night, breaking records (and looking fabulous) in the process.
The teen star was the youngest to ever take home the Entertainer of the Year award, and she did it in her traditional sequined style. Wearing a stunning Reem Acra princess dress, she accessorized with Lorraine Schwartz bronze-gold, diamond and sea pearl earrings and a 20-carat blackened-gold diamond bangle.
The other blonde metallic maven, host Carrie Underwood, walked the carpet in a bejeweled Theia dress with a one-of-a-kind Johnathon Arndt diamond deco ring and a pair of 3.0 ct. diamond studs. Pretty but predictable.
Other CMA jewelry trends included black and white styles on Leann Rimes and Reba McEntire; and splashes of color on a stunning Nicole Kidman in hot pink L’Wren Scott with ruby earrings by Edith Weber and Sugarland’s fashion plate, Jennifer Nettles in turquoise drops and a midnight blue mermaid gown.
