As expected, country outdid itself at the 2018 Academy of Country Music Awards, which was held Sunday night in Las Vegas.
From red carpet fashion to onstage performances, this year’s awards show was all about the drama. And like last year, glitz and glam took center stage for the genre’s biggest night out for both newcomers and country icons alike.
Maren Morris shook up the red carpet with her voluminous waves, while Jennifer Nettles rocked neon shadow and a sleek ‘do. Hilary Scott brought the heat with a bold lip as Reba stayed true to her country roots with her iconic waves.
But it was Olympian Lindsey Vonn who dominated for beauty with her effortless top knot and dewy cat eye. She complemented the dramatic look with a more subtle lip, perfect for her tulle, Belle-inspired gown. Other beauty standouts include Rebecca Romijn, Nicole Kidman and country queen Miranda Lambert.
