It was high-octane glamour at the 44th Annual CMA Awards on Nov. 11.

Hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, the Nashville-based event brought out performers including Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, and Sheryl Crow as well as Hollywood elite like Leighton Meester, Nicole Kidman, and Gwyneth Paltrow, who hit the stage to play the guitar and sing the title track to her upcoming movie "Country Strong" while donning a sleek and not very country LBD.

Naturally, all of the ladies pulled out all the stops when it came to their gowns, especially hostess Underwood, who seemed to change her ensemble every 10 minutes.
