Since the release of her dreamy-country-disco-folk album "Golden Hour" this spring, Kacey Musgraves has quickly (and deservedly) catapulted into bona-fide Fashion Industry Darling status. Together with stylist Erica Cloud, hairstylists Giovanni Delgado and Ali Ryan and makeup artist Carlene K, Musgraves has cultivated a distinctly '70s-tinged sartorial aesthetic around designers like Rosie Assoulin and legacy houses like Versace. She again turned to the latter — twice — for the 2018 Country Music Awards in Nashville on Wednesday, at which she walked away with the "Album of the Year" statuette. (Yay!)
Musgraves hit the red carpet in a custom, absolutely perfectly tailored Versace tuxedo, featuring a silk label and semi-cropped jacket. (See that below.) At some point during the red carpet circuit, she took off the jacket, and honestly, thank goodness, because that shirt — sheer and embellished with gold tassels, with opaque satin pockets covering her chest — was superb. The tasseled bolo tie was a festive touch, too.
Later, for the evening's after-parties, Musgraves changed into a full look from Versace's iconic Spring 2018 Tribute Collection, all in the same orange shade, like some kind of Donatella-friendly Orangina bottle: tights, sweater, suit jacket, glossy sandals and all. She even wiped off her splashy red lipstick (presumably) so as not to clash with all that orange.
Congrats on your win, Spacey Kacey! Now do the Grammys next.
