The MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas was packed with stars on April 6 for the 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards. As expected, the fashion for the huge red carpet event was breathtaking. We especially noted the extravagant and glamorous display of long dresses from stars like Faith Hill, Taylor Swift, and Shakira. There was no designer favorite, which was good because the varied styles and tastes made the red carpet even more interesting. Curious? Check out our top favorites below!

1. Taylor Swift in J. Mendel

Taylor Swift never misses, does she? She chose a two-piece dress by J. Mendel, which is composed of a slashed ivory crop top and a black column skirt with a thigh-high slit. Her earrings and bracelet are by Marina B., and her black clutch was by M2 Malletier. She wore a sexy pair of strappy black “Trikini” sandals from Casadei that matched her outfit.
