2012 CMT Music Awards: Carrie Underwood, Kristen Bell Steal the Spotlight

Carrie Underwood, Kristen Bell and Hayden Panettiere rarely get it wrong on the red carpet, and Wednesday's CMT Music Awards at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee was no exception.

Underwood — who picked up trophies for Video of the Year and Collaborative Video of the Year — turned heads in a La Femme mini. The "Blown Away" singer, 29, completed her look with Swarovski jewels.

Bell, who co-hosted the CMT Music Awards with Toby Keith, walked the red carpet with her fiance, Dax Shepard, 37, wearing a gold Reem Acra gown and Graziela diamond earrings. During the show, the House of Lies actress, 31, changed into dresses by Collette Dinnigan and Monique Lhuillier.

Panettiere, 22, paired a cream skirt by Praven with an embellished Giorgio Armani bodice and black Christian Louboutin pumps. "These are my comfy Louboutins," the ABC actress told Us Weekly. "I wish I was in cowboy boots!"

Other stars who walked the red carpet include Denise Richards (in Alice + Olivia), Jordin Sparks (in Kevan Hall), Kellie Pickler (in Herve Leger by Max Azria) and Miranda Lambert (in Georges Hobeika Signature Collection). To see more celebs at the 2012 CMT Music Awards, watch the video above!
