WTF Was She Thinking? The Week That Was In Bad Celebrity Style.

June 14, 2010 • Celebrity Style

The CMT Music Awards, (or the country Grammys as they're often called), have a reputation for accurately honoring the celebrated legends and breakout talent of the country music world. They are also known, however, for having some of the most cringe-worthy fashion to ever grace a red carpet. Part of the musical culture? Perhaps. But that's still no excuse for these songbirds to get away with their tunefully tacky threads.

Carrie Underwood

Comment: Now, if I had to have a girl crush on any country singer, it would have to be Carrie. Her style choices, like her chart-topping hits, are SO good when they're good. But when they're bad, they're pretty downright horrible. This look does not work due to its forced amount of fussiness—from the jeweled belt and weird collar closure to the over-sized bows on her shoes. It becomes reminiscent of a cross between medieval armor and Star Trek uniforms and, as the noble Tim Gunn would say, is overall just a lot of look.

She's Thinking: I was thinking Medieval Barbie

Kellie Pickler

Comment: Underwood's former frenemy from American Idol's Battle of the Blondes does not seem to be faring much better. At first glance, I thought Pickler's frock was some antiquated curtain-looking pattern. But upon closer inspection its even worse—overlapping folds of distressed fabric which comes off looking sloppy and ripped. LIke figure skating goes goth. Though Underwood may have taken the AI title, I think Pickle wins this face-off as worse of the two.

She's Thinking: I'm going through an "edgy" phase

Laura Bell Bundy

Comment: So apparently Laura Bell Bundy mixed up her dates and thought she was going to the Adult film Awards instead. I don't care how much you think you can pull that off as a red carpet look, one peek at side cleavage and you may as well be carrying a pole with you and asking for tips.

She's Thinking: I was hoping Heff would be here!

Miranda Lambert


Comment: Since they're wearing pretty much the exact same outfit, both Miranda Lambert and Snooki take home the prize for Outfit Most Closely Resembling a Disco Ball. Not that its the most flattering ensemble on either, but they do get points for their boldness. And lack of creativity.

They're (Both) Thinking: I wanted to shine like the big star that I am!

LeAnn Rimes

Comment: With all the backlash shes been getting from the media lately, you'd think Rimes would want to emerge breathtakingly beautiful for her social comeback. Not so much. Her dress would be cute if it was any other pattern besides that of an old school Atari game. And her bedhead hair and lack of real makeup just makes her look like she never grew out of the "child" part of child star.

She's Tinking: Atari was really before my time anyway

    Laura Bell is a media HO.

    To the “author:”
    So much wrong in so little space …
    Clearly, you don’t listen to country music (you should), have never watched “American Idol” (smart) and don’t know how to use Google or Wikipedia (not so smart).
    1. No one in Nashville or anywhere they actually listen to country music has ever called the CMT Music Awards the “country Grammys.”
    CMT (Country Music Television) is the country equivalent of MTV, and its awards show is the country equivalent of the MTV Music Video Awards. Fans vote for all the awards, which all center on VIDEOS.
    Country music has two other awards shows, the ACMs and the CMAs, with more traditional categories than the CMT Music Awards. And the stars tend to dress a bit more conservatively for those awards.
    2. Carrie Underwood and Kellie Pickler were on the fourth and fifth seasons, respectively, of “American Idol.” So they never competed while on the show.
    On this planet, Underwood and Pickler have been friends since they met, have never been “frenemies,” and have never taken part in a “Battle of the Blondes” on “American Idol.”
    Of course, maybe on your planet, it’s a different story.
