Battle of the blondes! Miranda Lambert shows off cleavage in daring cutout gown as she joins glam Kelsea Ballerini and Lainey Wilson on the red carpet at the ACM Awards in Texas




Miranda Lambert, Kelsea Ballerini and Lainey Wilson led the Western glamour at the 59th Academy of Country Music Awards in Frisco, Texas on Thursday night.

Lambert made jaws drop as she hit the red carpet in a sexy black cutout gown that showed off her ample cleavage.

It also had a daring thigh-high slit that highlighted her tanned and toned legs.

The Little Red Wagon hitmaker, 40, flashed a brilliant smile as her voluminous bright blonde hair framed her heart-shaped face.

Lambert stood on silver wrap heels that matched her shiny faux leather clutch.

Lambert was supported at the annual event by her 31-year-old husband Brendan McLoughlin, who looked handsome in a suit and tie.

She narrowly avoided an awkward run-in with her ex-husband Blake Shelton, 47, who was there with his new wife Gwen Stefani, 54.  

Gwen showed a lot of leg as she cozied up to Blake ahead of Thursday’s ceremony.

The couple — who will celebrate three years of marriage in July — looked as in love as ever during their red carpet stint.

Rocking her signature bleach blonde hair, Gwen posed up in a suede jacket and skirt with feather-shaped tassels.

Kelsea Ballerini delivered Old Hollywood glamour in a backless champagne-colored gown with a dramatic train.

The singer, 30, exuded elegance in the stunning frock that showcased her gym-honed figure and bronzed complexion.

Her dirty blonde hair was styled in a low bun with her bangs left out to frame her face.

Missing from the action was Ballerini’s hunky boyfriend Chase Stokes, 31. 

Rocking head-to-toe red, Lainey Wilson oozed confidence in front of photographers ahead of the ceremony.

The Yellowstone star, 31, went bra-less under a chic blazer with sparkly rhinestone lapels, matching flared pants and a flashy belt.

Lainey’s bouncy blonde curls flowed out from under a burgundy felt cowboy hat.

They didn’t take their relationship to a romantic level until the COVID-19 pandemic.
