The Country Music Awards 2009

The 2009 Country Music Awards saw no vintage walking down the runway (poo) but a definite trend one the one shoulder dress. I am actually a teeny tiny bit sad to see so many one shoulder pieces floating about these days. It's like the song you have heard on the radio too many times and are starting to get a little sick of. It use to be that if you appeared out in a one shoulder dress it was because you scored some fabulous vintage piece, but now its like everybody makes their version.

Ranting about designers jumping on the trend bandwagon aside here are some of the better dresses I have pulled from those seen last night on the red carpet

Nicole Kidman wore this dramatic sequin number from L'Wren Scott. Scott's designs seem to be appearing more and more at events don't you think? I love the sexy open back but am tossed up about the stark front. Nicole can definitely pull off the look with her long, lanky frame but I would have loved to see this same dress in COLOR.

Here's the first of our one shoulder gowns of the night
Martina McBride wore this beaded shoulder Badgley Mishka for a Grecian Goddess look

Taylor Swift's one shoulder gown is much more structured and formal.
I love this Angel Sanchez gown on her. She chose the right red for her coloring

This Robert Rodriguez gown worn by Jennifer Love Hewitt is actually one of my favorites.
It is very simple but so pretty and fresh. She is getting slammed a bit for playing it too safe.
I think she played it pretty, which is an entirely different thing.
It also has very strong vintage lines so I am completely biased of course

Miley Cyrus' one shoulder Monique Lhullier gown is again different from the others - its in jersey and gathered at the waist for a more va-voom effect. Miley always poses like a little girl, which she really is if you think about it. it is just that when she wears a very grown up dress like this, you really notice the dichotomy between girl and woman.

Finally, here is Marissa Miller in Dolce & Gabbana
and I only post this to show you that there really is nothing new under the sun.
I mean doesn't this remind just a teeny bit of this dress:

Uh huh you got it.
Vintage and available from ME at Shrimpton Couture
