Best Dressed CMT Awards

Truth be told, there were just as many fashion high notes as there were low notes at the 2015 CMT Music Awards. Now let's discuss.

We're sensing a best dressed theme here: Crisp white dresses. As the evening's hostesses, Erin Andrews and Brittany Snow both served up sophisticated styles on the red carpet, with Erin in a statuesque white column gown and Brittany in a black and white Monique Lhuillier dress.

Arriving on the arm of hubby Ian Somerhalder, Nikki Reed held her own in a flirty white frock with a cross-strap halter neckline revealing a sexy sliver of skin. Shying away from the white-haute trend altogether, Kimberly Perry stood out in all the right ways in a regal cobalt design with alluring midriff cutouts.

Pause a moment to take in the wonder that is Carrie Underwood's ensemble—ready? Obviously she's breathtaking in a white jeweled Thomas Wylde mini, but considering the fact that she gave birth just over three months ago, the 32-year-old is practically a superhuman beauty.

On the flip side, there were some very low notes on this country music red carpet.

Brooke Hogan's hot pink and white gown would've benefited from a few extra inches of fabric up top, plus it edged into tacky territory. And while RaeLynn's prismatic gown is certainly an interesting focal point, the orchid number might be better suited as a Katy Perry concert costume.  

Dressed in Georges Chakra Couture, Kellie Pickler's sparkly cerulean dress with mismatched shoulder lengths came off as bizarre. And sorry, Brandi Cyrus—we're all for the see-though dress trend, but this cactus-print version just didn't work.

Now, Meghan Linsey's two-piece floral set was certainly eye-catching, but in all the wrong ways. From the clunky print to the awkward pleats and primary-colored palette, this design fell flat on several levels.

Overall, only one thing is certain: Carrie definitely won the red carpet.
