Taylor Swift may have lost out on the top gong at the Academy of Country Music Awards, but she was a winner on the red carpet.
The I Knew Your Were Trouble singer was up for the coveted Entertainer Of The Year trophy at the event in Las Vegas - an award she has won twice before - but lost out to Luke Bryan.
However, Taylor still stole her fair share of the spotlight when she turned up in a long gold Dolce And Gabbana gown with an embellished neckline.
Other winners at the awards ceremony included Miranda Lambert, who scooped her fourth straight Female Vocalist gong and picked up three trophies for her hit song Over You.
Eric Church won two awards, including Album Of The Year, Jason Aldean won Male Vocalist Of The Year and Little Big Town had wins for Vocal Group and Video Of The Year.
Several stars performed at the show, including John Mayer, Keith Urban, Garth Brooks and George Strait, Lady Antebellum and former American Idol winner Carrie Underwood.
Stevie Wonder made his first appearance on a country music awards show, joining Hunter Hayes for a performance.
