You know why we love the CMT Awards? Even though it was a star-studded evening, the ladies of country don’t feel the need to go over the top to rock the hottest styles. They show us the perfect look for every summer event — from blasting T. Swift and driving with the sunroof open to rocking out at the music festival of your choice. The looks are soft, feminine and natural. We can’t think of better style ethos to kick off the summer season.
FOR A BONFIRE WITH FRIENDS
Kristen Bell: CMT’s veteran emcee shows us glamorous doesn’t have to be hard work. Grab a salt spray for easy beach-y waves, play up your lashes and finish the look with a coral lip.
FOR A DAY AT THE OFFICE
FOR A FAMILY AFFAIR
Carrie Underwood: The Video of the Year award winner showed us her sweet side on the red carpet. Loose waves and a dewy pink cheek combined with her signature smokey eye make the girl-next-door look oh so chic.
FOR DATE NIGHT AT THE DRIVE-IN
Hillary Scott: Lady A’s star songstress channeled Old Hollywood with her look. Her big retro curls and berry pink lip are perfect for snuggling up with your sweetie in the truck bed and taking in a flick.
FOR AN AFTERNOON OF RETAIL THERAPY
Jennifer Nettles: Jennifer’s straight bang, shimmery pink eyeshade and natural lip are perfect for an afternoon of shoe shopping and froyo. And boy did she and John Legend blow us away last night.
FOR A DAY AT THE BEACH
Kimberly Perry: Messy beach waves stole the show last night, and The Band Perry lead singer followed the trend. We love her natural waves, big lashes and pink lips (with SPF!) for effortless look while sunbathing.
FOR A GIRLS’ NIGHT OUT
Miranda Lambert: Miranda broke the mold last night with her edgy, rockstar styles. Here she rocks lots of volume on top with a smokey eye, pale lip and bronzed summer skin. Pair this look with your favorite skinny jeans and sky high stilettos for a night of bar hopping with the girls.
FOR A DINNER DATE
FOR A SUMMER MUSIC FEST
FOR AN ALFRESCO HAPPY HOUR
BONUS: FOR GETTING DOWN WITH YOUR BAD SELF
Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert: These BFFLs brought down the house at the end of last night’s show with a premiere of their new collab, “Somethin’ Bad.” And their style matched the song. Carrie went big on the hairspray with sexy, voluminous waves while Miranda brought the glam with faux undercut braids.
