Country music award shows have quite the reputation for creative fashion moments, often including glitter cowboy boots, rhinestone denim and, of course, an excess of teased hair. We’ve grown to expect a controversial fashion moment or two when it comes to these events and that has definitely been the case with the annual Academy of Country Music Awards in year’s past. Although there have been a few downright outrageous country music fashion moments, the ones that cause even more controversy are from the country music stars whom we had high expectations for yet didn’t deliver. Follow along for 12 of the most disappointing ACM awards looks of all time:
12. Hillary Scott — 2017
It’s key for a music group to coordinate when they hit the red carpet if they want fashion critics to give them praise. Lady Antebellum clearly didn’t speak before attending the event based on the variety of color palettes flashing off their outfits. Both men of the group look quite dapper despite their clashing colored suits, but there was unfortunately very few redeemable qualities about Hillary Scott’s fuschia knotted dress. Although we love the emerald pop of color on her shoes, the dress was not the most flattering and seemed more distracting than it was flattering.
