The 48th annual Academy of Country Music Awards provided the perfect "excuse" for a little glamour yesterday, especially where Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood were concerned. Both singers chose floor-length creations for the occasion, but that's where the similarities ended. Swift sparkled in a gold form-fitting Dolce & Gabbana number, which also featured a bejewelled art deco-inspired neckline and a sexy low back. Underwood stuck to her red carpet MO with a bright floral-print strapless gown by Naeem Khan, coral chandelier earrings, and a black clutch. We're leaving it to you to decide who earned best-dressed status!
In the lead up to Christmas, it seems like a lot of things are getting more and more festive — and fashion's in on the whole thing! Diane Kruger's stunning Prabal Gurung gown was a spectacle of frills and sporty accents, while Anne Hathaway's showstopping Givenchy sparkler cemented her status as a leading lady of all things style-related. But it wasn't all so detailed! Bringing us back down to a simpler earth was Taylor Swift, looking foxy in her LBD and simple peep-toe heels, and Ashley Madekwe, whose slate-grey sheath we would like in our closets right now, thanks. That's not all! There's so much more to see from the week gone by — click through the gallery to see the full round-up of the top ten best dressed celebs.
Carrie Underwood looks darling in magenta at the 2012 American Music Awards. The country singer's dress is figure-hugging in all the right places, and completely sequinned. Her ice blonde locks are down and smooth with a gentle wave and side part — a hair look that lets her outfit do the talking. Carrie's makeup is all about the heavy eye and nude lip, she looks beautiful. Do you agree?

With Taylor Swift's red-and-nude embellished Jenny Packham gown, Carrie Underwood's slightly edgier gilded Reem Acra number, and Hayden Panettiere's sparkly Georges Chakra Couture minidress leading the CMAs red-carpet pack, one thing came through loud and clear. The evening's festivities could easily have been reimagined as a glamorous "battle" of the blondes. Only providing more fashion fuel to the fire, US country music stars Miranda Lambert and Faith Hill added their own brand of award-night elegance, in Maria Lucia Hohan and Roland Mouret, respectively. Each dramatic ensemble deserves a closer look — for every princess-like chiffon skirt and girlie frill, there's a darker element of appliqué and skin-baring detail. And, lest we forget, there were also the high-wattage clutches, bold green accents, and statement earrings to lust after, too. Ready to zoom in? It's time to give this battle its best-dressed victor.

Carrie Underwood loves a princess-moment on the red carpet, doesn't she? The country star opted for all out glamour, courtesy of Mr Oscar de la Renta for her Billboard Awards appearance today. Her grey-to-pastel ombre confection looks like a tulle mille feuille — in the best possible way! An embellished pastel clutch, diamond stud earrings and metallic peep-toe heels finish off the look. Do you approve?

Known for her ability to frock up on the red carpet, Carrie favours embellished, colourful and feminine gowns from the likes of Georges Chakra, Zuhair Murad and we can't forget Badgley Mischka, with that incredible gold gown she wore to the Golden Globes. Click through our gallery and watch her style evolve from her American Idol era to the red carpet glamazon she is today.
Carrie Underwood gives good red carpet. From the tulle-rific Talbot Runhof gown she donned last month, to her grecian inspired Grammys gown, Carrie knows how to frock up! She stepped out at today's American Country Awards, in Las Vegas, in this hard-to-miss shade of scarlet dress by Georges Chakra. The designer also designed Carrie's Grammys dress, and this number from his Fall '10 line is just as gorgeous. The sheer, off the shoulder sequinned detailing separates this from the plethora of red dresses we've seen of late, and the thigh high split makes it muchos sexier than the red-hot number the other Carey wore just yesterday. What's your take on Carrie's fire-starter look? Hot diggity? Or ho-hum?
