Despite the awards night going by in a flash, many of us still can’t stop thinking about the fabulous outfits of celebrities during that event. 

The highly prestigious awards show happened on November 10, 2021, in Nashville, Tennessee’s Bridgestone Arena. Of course, the stars traded their cowboy boots for lavish and stylish outfits for the world to see. With that said, there are always celebrities who stand out during these red-carpet events.

So, here are our top picks for the best-dressed female personalities during the CMA Awards 2021, based on their red-carpet photos. (In no particular order)

Nicole Kidman 

The 54 years old actress arrived together with her husband, country music star Keith Urban. She wore a sophisticated and sleek Saint Laurent one-shoulder gown by Anthony Vacarello. Her alluring dress also came with a sexy one-shoulder neckline and leg slit. 

Katy Perry 

In addition to swooping in and helping Luke Bryan with his hosting job, Katy Perry also delivered one of the evening’s best style moments. The 27-year-old award-winning singer and American Idol judge came in a custom leather dress adorned with jewels from Vivienne Westwood. Despite having minimum makeup, being in an uber-tight top with her hair slicked back gave her outfit a tantalizing chic vibe. 

Carrie Underwood

No country music celebration would be complete without an appearance from the one and only Carrie Underwood. The 38-year-old country music heavyweight arrived in a sparkling metallic gown. The dress even included studs and spikes! She also accessorizes the gown with diamond earrings and sky-high stilettos, making her outfit ooze with glitz and glam. 

Kelsea Ballerini 

Perhaps the one that blew many people away during the CMA Awards 2021 red carpet photos frenzy, it’s impossible not to include Kelsea Ballerini on this list. Ballerini came in “guns a-blazing” in a gorgeous gown from Valdrin Sahiti, shoes from Andrea Wazen, and jewelry from Anito Ko. She radiated that classic chic, timeless, and clean beauty look. 

Maren Morris

Maren Morris, 31, looked sizzling hot on the red carpet that night. The singer certainly didn’t shy away from showing some skin, wearing an extra-long blazer while skipping a shirt underneath it. For the hair, she worked with stylist Marwa Bashir who helped her rock a fluffy ponytail along with a deep diagonal part. 

All the personalities that attended the event knew how to awe the audience with their sense of style. It’s no surprise to see people still looking at the CMA Awards 2021 red carpet photos today. For those that witnessed the event, the many glamourous outfits showcased that night are hard to forget.
