Miranda Lambert made her red carpet debut with Anderson East at the ACMs


The Academy of Country Music Awards were held last night in Las Vegas. It was a big night for Jason Aldean, Chris Stapleton and yes, Miranda Lambert. You can see the full list of ACM Award winners here. Even though there are plenty of rumors about Miranda alienating a lot of people in the country music community, she’s still a big deal to country music fans and professionals, it would seem. Much like her ex, Miranda moved on from last year’s divorce very quickly. She started up with Anderson East a few months after the divorce from Blake Shelton, and last night was their coupled-up debut on the ACM red carpet. Miranda wore this super-low-cut Christian Siriano in butter. While I think she looks good – she looks great, actually – I can still feel waves of discomfort coming off of her. Probably because Blake Shelton surprised everyone by crashing the opening monologue?



I sometimes wonder if Nicole Kidman misreads the red carpet when she’s attending these country music awards shows as the “wife of.” Like, she usually dresses like she’s attending the Golden Globes or something. Her gown last night was Alexander McQueen. It’s okay, but it seems like a weird choice for this show.



Katy Perry looked like Country Music Barbie in this Jeremy Scott ensemble. She performed with Dolly Parton – they did Dolly’s “Coat of Many Colors,” and you can see the performance here. Dolly looked amazing, as always.



Carrie Underwood wore Davidson Zanine, but per usual, she had a few costume changes. She also premiered her new single “Church Bells” at the show.


I can’t find the ID on Kacey Musgraves’ dress, but this woman always has the oddest style. This dress isn’t bad or anything, but it’s just not what I would have expected from her.

    Miranda looks fantastic.

    • kibbles says:

      She looks amazing. For a while she lost a lot of weight and was not looking energized, happy, or her usual herself. Maybe that was due to he marriage troubles. Right now it looks like she is healthy, eating regularly, and is at the perfect size for her body type. I love her curves and this dress accentuates all of them at the right places. She should try to maintain her current weight.

    • INeedANap says:

      Team Miranda! Mostly because the whole Blake and Gwen thing is terrible and saccharine, and Miranda rocks my Spotify.

      • kcarp says:

        I was team Blake until he started all the Gwen ridiculous stuff. The facetiming for the paparazzi was the grossest thing I had ever seen

  2. catwoman says:

    My grandma would look fantastic standing next to that zombie dude.

    • Wren33 says:

      Yeah, I make fun of any guy using obvious make-up on a red carpet, but it isn’t really fair that pasty gals are allowed to enliven their faces a bit and this guy is left looking like a slightly thawed corpse. I mean, I could see how he could be good looking in certain warm lighting situations.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      Omg, I thought similarly- is he a ghoul, or just coming off a bender? Waxy, ill appearance is strikingly similar to Nicholas Cage’s character in Leaving Las Vegas.

    • Size Does Matter says:

      Totally agree – he’s frightening. Does she have on a ton of makeup and he’s what normal people look like? And Dolly looks like pale Elvira.

      Somebody hold me; I’m scared.

    • claire says:

      He’s looking a little scary. Like sweaty and sickly. Maybe it’s alcohol sweats?

      • Erinn says:

        I mean, it could be as simple as him having a cold, though. I agree he doesn’t look good – but I wouldn’t jump to substance dependency right away when it’s still cold/flu season.

  3. Lex says:

    I really like Carrie’s hair length/style in that picture. I wish I could have my hair like but my hair is too thick/frizzy to do anything above my shoulders.

  4. Esmom says:

    Nicole looks lovely but ridiculous next to her husband. Or maybe he’s the one who looks ridiculous next to her? Hard to say.

    And I know nothing about Miranda, lovely as she looks, or her guy but something about him strikes me as high maintenance. I guess it’s the crunchy curls.

  5. Donna says:

    Miranda looks utterly gorgeous, I love the necklace.
    I’m vaguely offended by Katy Perry. It feels as though she’s mocking the whole thing with that outfit and I know I’m probably being ridiculous, but still. It really irritates me.

    • smcollins says:

      I understand what you mean. It almost looks like a Halloween costume. She may have been aiming for fun & campy, but she just looks ridiculous.

    • Pansy says:

      Meeeee tooooooo!!!! I’m not even a huge fan of country music (well, except for Chris Stapleton. He’s amazing), but respect the fact you’re singing a song with an American icon! Or go back to singing about your skintight jeans somewhere else.

    • Erinn says:

      And why is she even THERE? Nothing about Katy is country … I get that she’s a big star in her own right – but why would they have her singing with Dolly?

      Hell – Miley would have made more sense to me than Katy.

  6. QQ says:

    This is the least fussy number of things Ive seen in a country awards carpet! (LOL AND YES im adding and substracting Katy Perry to this math)

    Ive never been here for the Musgraves girl/style/music TIL SHE DID A REMIX OF WAVES WITH MIGUEL!! good God that sh!t is sexy!

  7. Ana says:

    He’s gay, right? I’m getting so many vibes from him.

    What is Katy Perry wearing!? Gosh…

  8. Locke Lamora says:

    Nicole’s dress is amazing, but yeah, not for a country awards show.
    Carrie looks less tacky than usual. Her haircut is beautiful, now if she only went a few shades darker it would be perfect.
    I hate Miranda’s low neckline and the bronzer thing that’s happening with her boobs. Her boyfriend looks 11.

  9. mia girl says:

    Whatever this East guy is doing with his hair has to stop. It’s a wet mess.

  10. Nancy says:

    Miranda didn’t leave much to the imagination with that dress. Take a look at my boobs. To me it has to be embarrassing to one year be so omg I’m so in love with this man then the next, well let’s try it again with somebody else. But I guess that’s how it goes in their business. I will leave it at that.

    • Erinn says:

      To be fair – I don’t think she and Blake actually spent all that much time together. Probably a lot easier to move on when you weren’t spending a normal day in and day out kind of life together. And the way he’s been parading Gwen around, I’d actually say Miranda is a bit more sedate in comparison.

  11. doofus says:

    Miranda does look great, but yes, uncomfortable. her fella looks like a serial killer. sorry, but he’s creepy looking. looks better when he smiles, but still creepy.

    kidman looks like a wax figure. perry looks ridic…Dolly looks fab and, though I’m not a fan, Carrie Underwood looks amazing, too.

    • kibbles says:

      When I first saw these photos my reaction was the same about Miranda’s boyfriend. He definitely does not photograph well. He looks unattractive in these photos. Then I Googled him and found this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwW7GFK70yM
      He looks much better in the video and he has a great voice so I can see how Miranda could be attracted to him.

      • Ruby says:

        This is a horrible picture of him but he’s pretty amazing generally. He’s also about twelve minutes into his first major label contract after years of being a grunt musician so he’s awkward as heck in the face of all of this attention. It’s nice to see Miranda with someone who is into his music more than his celebrity status. And yeah, I’d never heard of him before Miranda started posting about him on Instagram.

    • Mollie says:

      He’s amazing. Saw him live. Have you ever heard his voice? Don’t go by these cheesy pics

  12. Rhiley says:

    When Lyle Lovett sings, my toes curl, so Lyle Lovett will always be sexy to me. Miranda’s fella looks like a less sexier Lyle Lovett. I am a little sad that Miranda and Blake didn’t work out because they looked really good together.

  13. D says:

    He looks a lot younger than her, how old is he?

    • Lara K says:

      He’s like 28 and looks it. She’s only 31, but has some rough city miles on her.

      Ste looks like his mommy- utterly ridiculous.

  14. Patricia says:

    I feel waves of desperate thirst coming off of Miranda. She always comes off that way to me and this is especially bad.

    Katy Perry, what a humiliation.

  15. jsilly4e says:

    Miranda, Carrie and Kacey look great. Dolly always looks wonderful! I’ve loved her since I was a kid growing up on Country music (I’m a Queens, NY kid lol)

    Nicole Kidman didn’t dress appropriately. I feel the whole look is too severe.

    Katy Perry always looks like she’s making fun of whatever genre she’s dressing to represent. She had the absolute worst taste and stylist in the business. Seriously. She’s a pretty girl but you’d never know it.

  16. lile says:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE MIRANDA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • NUTBALLS says:

      I thought she absolutely SLAYED her cover of ZZ Top’s “Tush” last night! I’m not a mainstream country fan at all, but that was the best moment of the night for me. Keith Urban rockin’ the banjo in his set was pretty awesome too.

  17. Halah says:

    Ever since I read that Dolly is secretly covered in tattoos I’m so fascinated with any photo of her showing the extent she goes through to cover her arms. This is a great shot showing the arm stockings that she wears (you can see it covering the inside of her hand attached around her thumb). If it’s true I wish Dolly would just show up in a tank and say “here are my tatts ya’ll, deal with it!”

  18. Tig says:

    Christian S did Miranda no favors with that dress- the top is a disaster. I do like the color on her. Re Nicole- I think the dress is amazing, but wrong event for it. Katy Perry- how long does she keep this up? Isn’t she over 30? That get up looks like a western Rocky Horror get up.

  19. KBeth says:

    Miranda looks pretty, her date looks like an awkward 15 year old.
    Poor Nicole, beautiful woman but that dress is utterly horrid.

  20. Bridget says:

    With Miranda, I can’t shake the vibe that she just rustled herself up a guy so she wasn’t alone since her ex moved on so quickly.

    • Jayna says:

      She was cheating on him. I don’t know if it was this guy or someone else. She wasn’t alone.

      • Tifygodess24 says:

        No one has ever confirmed she cheated- unless I missed something? The same could also be same for Blake. Major rumors (some with feet) followed him the whole time they were married so…… I’m not a fan of either one of them but let’s put it all out there.

      • Donna says:

        The cheating rumors were not about Anderson East.

      • Bridget says:

        @Jayna, that doesn’t make her any more likely to want to show up to these things alone.

    • claire says:

      The strongest rumor is that she was cheating. Nevertheless, she debuted this guy about the same time as when Blake started dating Gwen, so I think they both moved on pretty quickly. Celeb types definitely don’t like to be alone for very long!

  21. Marine says:

    Wait how has no one mentioned Miranda holding open her slit in at least two of the pictures?? Its like Jolie light 💃🏻

  22. elle says:

    Her face looks really different to me… I’m getting Michelle Pfeiffer/Keri Russell vibes. Carrie Underwood looks different, too… her chin isn’t as pointy as it used to be.

  23. Velvet Elvis says:

    lmfao at Katy Perry.

  24. Nancypants says:

    What the h*ll is going on here?
    All these people look AWFUL.
    I grew up country and still like a little country music but my gosh…
    It’s almost as though they had a secret joke to see who could look trashiest.

  25. TreadStyle says:

    I really love Nicole Kidmans dress but it was totally wasted on an event like this. I would have loved to see this on someone else during awards season. The rest r just meh to me.

  26. JenniferJustice says:

    I stopped watching the awards show when I saw the whole thing was a plug for Walmart – the largest employer in the U.S. but only part time, no benefits, and selling mostly foreign made products. They treat their employees like crap but hey, they’re fundraising for world hunger, so all is well *insert sarcasm*.

  27. iheartgossip says:

    Katy Perry. NO! You look like you’re poking fun at country music / people. Carrie Underwood looks divine, classy and healthy. Miranda – not sure about the boyfriend. He looks sweet, tho. I’ll bet Country Drunkin’ is kickin’ himself. Mr. & Mrs. Urban, you are wonderful.

  28. Kate says:

    Am I the only one who thinks Anderson East and Miranda look like a mom escorting her son on the red carpet? I don’t what it is that’s giving met what vibe from them but it’s weird

  29. Donna says:

    Those are bad photos of Anderson East. I’ve seen him live in a small venue where he mingled in the bar with us, he is SEXY in person and listen to his voice…no, no gay. Just…WOW.
    He’s amazing.

  30. Donna says:

    If you need to shake the gay vibe from these photos, simply google Anderson East “Satisfy Me” or “Tell you what a woman wants to hear”.

  31. Tredd says:

    Miranda is SUCH her own gal. Love her!

  32. amilu says:

    I kind of appreciate Nicole’s dress. It’s like a kooky, modern version of a Loretta Lynn gown from the ’70s — maxi length, high collar, puff sleeves — check, check, check.
