20 Best and Worst Dressed at the CMAs

Who wore what and...why?
The Country Music Awards have come and gone for another year. But who were the standout red carpet style moments?
WORST: Danielle Bradbery
The singer took a page out of Bella Hadid's book with her Grecian-style cranberry dress with a super plunging neckline. Not to mention the slit. Too OTT for the CMAs.
BEST: Dolly Parton
Dolly is queen. She can wear whatever she wants.
Much like the aforementioned Dolly, Queen Bey doesn't even need to walk the red carpet to make the best dressed list. Her intricately embellished dress leaves little to the imagination, but she makes it work.
BEST: Carrie Underwood
The host changed eight times throughout the evening, but these three were her standout moments.
BEST: Jennifer Garner
No word yet on why Jennifer was actually there, but her strapless pencil gown injected some Hollywood glamour in Nashville.
WORST: Trey Fanjoy
I don't know who Trey Fanjoy is, but I demand to know who her stylist is to find out why she put her in this.
BEST: Sharon Stone
Another inexplicable appearance, but it's Stone's best red carpet turn in years.
WORST: Karen Fairchild
Without the fringe, we'd have something to work with. But the Little Big Town singer overstepped the mark with too much detailing on this teal dress.
WORST: Kacey Musgraves
Much like Zoe Saldana's purple 2010 Oscar dress and Rihanna's marshmallow pink Grammy dress before her, this look doesn't even shock. But it does offend.
BEST: Hillary Scott
I'd prefer if the Lady Antebellum singer's white gown didn't feature the cape detail, but we'll count it as a win.
BEST: Jennifer Nettles
LOVE this floral applique dress.
BEST: Nicole Kidman
This Oscar-winner's shouldn't-work-but-it-does Gucci dress adds some couture to the country music world.
WORST: Aly Raisman
The Olympic gymnast entirely missed the mark in this sheer, glittery disaster.
BEST: Kelsea Ballerini
Fun. Flirty. Fashionable. One of the best dressed of the night.
BEST: Simone Biles
It's official - Simone Biles can do no wrong.
WORST: Miranda Lambert
The too-plunging neckline looks ill-fitting instead of daring.
WORST: Elle King
Points for trying something new, but in now world does the matador look translate to red carpet success.
WORST: Hayley Orrantia
For obvious reasons.
WORST: Jamie Lynn Spears
JLS didn't get the memo that it's legs or boobs. The dress hands off her petite frame and ages her well beyond her 25 years.
BEST: Kaitlyn Bristowe
Kaitlyn nailed in this lace crop top and ball gown skirt combination. Youthful and classic in one.
