Sure, the CMT Music Awards may officially be over, but we STILL can't stop talking about all the ensembles we saw on the red carpet and stage tonight! Oddly enough, two of our favorite looks of the evening came from just one lady--Ms. Carrie Underwood. She stepped out on the red, er, purple carpet in a fresh mint EDITION by Georges Chakra partially-sheer sequin jacket with matching shorts, a Swarovski clutch and silver peep toe pumps. She finished the look with her signature blonde waves, super lush lashes, a touch of silver eyeshadow, and a swipe of high-shine lip gloss. We're kiiind of obsessed with this outfit because the whole matching co-ordinates thing is super on trend right now, and we could totally see ourselves sporting this comfy-yet-glam ensemble IRL.

Tonight at the 2013 CMT Music Awards, Taylor Swift went back to her roots. We're not just talking about her Nashville homecoming but her style choices, too! After a long streak of pushing her fashion boundaries, going edgy for the Met Gala and working a striking mini on the Billboard Music Awards red carpet, T.Swizzle has gone back to the tried and true color palette she knows best (red, white, and gold) both on the CMT red carpet and on stage. For her arrival, Swift wore a cream-colored strapless dress from the Elie Saab Spring 2013 RTW collection. Covered in exquisite, sparkling blush beadwork, cut loose and away from the body, and styled with Jimmy Choo shoes, Neil Lane jewelry, a Christian Louboutin clutch and what looks like a faux bob, the ensemble is perfect for a fancy summer soiree. Also, dancing!
