Country's finest and more showed off their style for the 2013 CMT Awards. It was a bit less formal than the ACMs or CMAs (country music seemingly has an awards show every few weeks), so some superstars went more casual and shorter with their dress lengths.

For example, Taylor Swift wore a summery strapless frock with a short front and long back, while fellow blonde (and rumored nemesis) Carrie Underwood confused us in a mint green shorts suit that, despite her killer gams, wasn't cute.

Here's our roundup of the best and ... not-so-best of the night.

Kristen Bell

The show's curvy co-host wore a black leather Zuhair Murad frock. You'd never guess she JUST gave birth to daughter Lincoln three months ago!

Nicole Kidman

Mrs. Keith Urban was head-to-toe in Dior. Her swingy black frock was lovely and exactly right for the warm weather.

Kellie Pickler

The 'Dancing with the Stars' champ was daring with her glittery cowl neck gown in a rose gold hue that teased with a little bit of side boob.
