Red Carpet Rundown: Big Tans, Bad Boots & Lots Of Blondes At The CMT Awards

Taylor Swift, Nicole Kidman and Carrie Underwood attend the 2013 CMT Awards

The only thing worse for a red carpet than a music awards show is a country music awards show (usually, anyway) and last night’s CMT Awards red carpet was replete with embellished cowboy boots, oddball hemlines, heaps of glitter and really bad tans. It also boasted a few big stars like Taylor Swift, Nicole Kidman and Dog the Bounty Hunter. See all the relevant looks ahead…

    Anna Sophia Robb looks like a young, gorgeous, non drug marred cat marnell.
    This is both striking and worrisome to me

      Also, I googled cat marnell and am having trouble finding a picture of her looking attractive without something smeared on her face.
