“My back is getting cold. It’s all backless,” she said.
Carrie Underwood also hit the CMA Awards red carpet in Cavalli - hers a bright yellow gown - just one of nine wardrobe changes throughout the night. Nicole Kidman was classic in a black fringed knee length dress, Reese Witherspoon wore black lace Marchesa and Taylor Swift dazzled in a Kaufman Franco metallic sequined gown.
“It is 30 pounds worth of heavy,” Taylor joked with us.
“Dancing With the Stars” and country singing cutie Julianne Hough stood out in a hot pink Angel Sanchez gown with ruffled train.
“I was a little scared when I saw pink, because I’m not much of a pink wearer. But I put it on; it’s just really dramatic and fun and bubbly kind of you know, the same way I am,” she laughed.
Meanwhile, last night in Hollywood, I met Italian designer Alberta Ferretti at the opening of her first U.S. flagship store on Melrose Avenue. Her clothes are beautiful and ladylike and the sleek 4,500-square-foot store showcases several Ferretti collections, as well as accessories and shoes.
Nicole Richie (out for the second night in a row), looked gorgeous in a long silver silk gown with Christian Louboutin snakeskin platforms. Boyfriend Joel Madden was there with her. (I had no idea he was so short - can I say that?)
Also attending, Lucy Liu, who co-hosted the celebration, in a teal fringe dress, Nicky Hilton in a short navy sequined dress… and Emmy Rossum in a royal blue chiffon one shouldered number… all Ferretti designs… of course.
“She’s feminine, classic, very glamorous & classy and that’s why I love her stuff,” Emmy told us.
