Jewelry hounds, I’m not trying to be disagreeable. Red carpet jewelry and fashion gawking is certainly not saving any oil-soaked pelicans or curing cancer anytime soon. But when Jersey Shore‘s Snooki looks better than half the divas doing the rounds at the Country Music Television (CMT) Awards, you know you’re in for a long night.
And what is Snooki doing at the CMT Awards?
Let’s start with the good. Taylor Swift. Always a fashion winner. Love the straight hair. Hoops. Galliano. Louboutin. What’s not to like?
What’s not to like? How about this unfortunate statement necklace choice by Kellie Pickler?
Or this bizarre lace mini green monster thing on Hayden Panitierre?
Or the weird day-glo dress meets sparkly gold teardrop earring look on Leann Rimes?
Or Laura Bell Bundy’s gold stripper, I mean, red carpet get-up?
Or Miranda Lambert’s Snooki impression?
Or this ho-hum look an the usually stunning Faith Hill (love the trendy big hoops, though)?
Clearly this battle of the blonde bombshells left me battered and bruised. Am I going off the rails here? Or is Country Music in desperate need of a Rachel Zoe makeover?
