For footwear, the Miss Universe 2012 winner selected black ankle-strap sandals, which were embellished to match the gown. She rocked a pale pedicure that contrasted with the dark gown.
While not herself involved in country music, Culpo was joined on the red carpet by some of the genre’s biggest stars.
One such star was Maren Morris, who opted for a look similar to Culpo’s. The “Rich” singer looked elegant in a sparkling Julien MacDonald dress. The sensual gown featured long sleeves and a low neckline. It came complete with a generous thigh-high slit that highlighted Morris’ shoes, a pair of sparkly sandals on a stiletto heel. The star walked the red carpet alongside husband Ryan Hurd, who complemented her in a gold blazer, black trousers and shiny dress shoes.
Kelsea Ballerini also made it out for the awards show. The country songstress wore a hot-pink gown custom designed by Zac Posen. The princess-like dress featured cap sleeves and a sweetheart neckline. The gown was completed by a long train.
