Last night, country darlings lit up the red carpet for a top-secret filming of this year's CMT Artists of the Year event. While the network won't reveal its illustrious list of honorees until the show airs on December 8th, we got a sneak peek of the leading ladies in attendance.
Carrie Underwood struck a high sartorial note in a mesh-paneled, cleavage-baring Katharine Kidd jumpsuit. Oxblood cap-toe Giuseppe Zanotti pumps and a Jill Milan "Holland Park" clutch kept the modern look on the sophisticated side of sultry.
In sharp contrast, Hayden Panettiere electified in hot pink Roberto Cavalli gown—nabbing her a coveted spot as our Look of the Day. Also opting for a floor-sweeping length, singer Sheryl Crow stuck with the classics in figure-flattering dress with caged booties.
Miranda Lambert outshined the competition in an ornately-sequined Jovani Couture cocktail dress, while Merry Go 'Round' singer Kacey Musgraves sported an embellished bod-con LBD. But was either outfit enough to win them the title of "Best Dressed?" Cast your vote, and discuss in the comments!
Don't forget to tune in to CMT for the 2012 CMT Artists of the Year show on Saturday, December 8th at 10 p.m. (ET)!
