The worst dressed at the Academy of Country Music Awards

When celebrities go a little bit country, a lot can go wrong. Here are the five celebrities that turned the most heads last night – and not in a good way.

Stripper heels, a baby blue prom dress and a flashy silver belt are three things that just don’t belong on a red carpet, even at an event presented by the Academy of Country Music. Poor Kacey Musgraves. Someone get her a stylist, stat.

If you do a quick glance, it looks like Miranda Lambert showed up to the ACM Awards completely nude. Maybe she forgot to put her real dress on over her slip? Ironically, once you notice she is clothed, it’s hard not to look at the part of her that’s covered up the least: that bountiful cleavage.

Shakira wasn’t shy about showing what was “underneath her clothes” last night. The star was there to debut her new song with Blake Shelton, “Medicine.” Shakira is stunning and usually is right on the money when it comes to style, but this dress is – let’s just say it, trashy.

Oh Shawna Thompson. That poppy-covered tulle dress was a good idea in theory, but in actuality, the overall effect is too much. It’s just too much.

“The Voice” alum RaeLynn is new at this whole red carpet game, so hopefully her next attempt will be a little, er, appropriate. Feathers and ankle straps do not a style star make.
