12 of the most daring looks celebrities have ever worn at the CMT Music Awards
The annual CMT Music Awards are being held in Nashville, Tennessee, on Sunday.
In past years, some celebrities have attended the event in daring fashion.
Pamela Anderson once wore a see-through minidress, and Taylor Swift wore a bustier ensemble.
Pamela Anderson wore a chainmail-style minidress while hosting the 2003 CMT Music Awards.
The dress was crafted from round, reflective pieces approximately the size of quarters, with a giant keyhole cutout across its bodice.
Underneath, she seemingly wore only a pair of black underwear.
Five years later, Snoop Dog made an appearance wearing an outfit you wouldn't expect to see him in.
He paired a black cowboy hat with a leather vest, button-up shirt, black jeans, a trench coat, and of course, matching cowboy boots.
In 2009, Kellie Pickler performed while wearing a sparkling, sheer look.
Her strapless minidress dazzled onstage, especially thanks to the crystals across its neckline.
The beaded fringe on its bodice and skirt, however, was more sparse, creating see-through spots across the garment.
Hayden Panettiere chose a striking dress with a lace corset for the 2010 event.
Her outfit had two layers: the black, sheer corset underneath a wrapped layer of teal satin.
The latter extended into a single strap over one shoulder, and an asymmetrical skirt that dipped below her backside.
For her 2013 performance of "Red," Taylor Swift sported a red-and-black bustier top.
The black bodysuit portion of her outfit was covered in crystals, while its red, sleeveless overlay had leather belt detailing.
Jenna Dewan wore lace in a daring way on the 2015 red carpet.
Designed by Zuhair Murad, her sleeveless dress was a stunning magenta shade. It had a deep neckline and strips of lace, which added a sheer element to her look.
Nicole Kidman also sported sheer fabric at the 2017 event.
Designed by Virgil Abloh for Off-White, her dress had long lace sleeves, a matching high neckline, and a satin overlay that covered her skin.
Leon Bridges stood out in a satin ensemble at the 2019 CMT Music Awards.
His printed, yellow suit had a vintage flair, which looked more classic than daring.
But when compared to the jeans and T-shirts that most male musicians wear at the CMT Awards, Bridges' ensemble was bold.
On the 2020 red carpet, Mickey Guyton wore a dazzling maternity gown.
Cavanagh Baker created her dress, which had long sleeves, a plunging neckline, and a wrap skirt.
It was also covered from top to bottom in Swarovski crystals with a mesh material underneath, adding a sheer element to the look.
That same year, Noah Cyrus performed in a see-through bodysuit that left little to the imagination.
The Saga NYC design had strategically placed crystals across it that created the shape of a small bikini.
It was quickly criticized across the internet, with some arguing that Cyrus' look was too sexual and revealing.
Cyrus, however, defended her outfit on Twitter, writing: "My body my choice, bitch."
When Kelsea Ballerini won the 2021 performance of the year award, she posed on the red carpet in a daring minidress.
The hot-pink garment had cutouts across its ruched bodice and long sleeves, and metal clasps across each strip of fabric.
Carrie Underwood showed the wild side of her style last year.
Her purple, leopard-print minidress had both halter and spaghetti straps up top, and a small slit on one side of its miniskirt.
