Kacey Musgraves has spent the past year winning us over with her sweet disco aesthetic. She's always down to play with color and glitter, and she loves a '70s-inspired jumpsuit — especially one with an exaggerated flare and pleats.

Musgraves typically stands out among a sea of country stars — many of whom are less adventurous on the red carpet and tend to stick to excessive fringe and sparkle. This was the case on Sunday evening, when she attended the 2019 Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas wearing a cotton candy-colored ombré suit by Christian Cowan with pleated detailing on the sleeves and trousers. The singer, who picked up Album of the Year at the event, looked like a walking version of her "Golden Hour" album cover. The rainbow hues and pleats reference her album artwork, which feature the artist under bright blue skies holding a pink and orange folding hand fan. 

Musgraves's stylist Erica Cloud kept the rest of the look rather simple: Her shoes were concealed by the length of the pants, so for all we know, she was wearing a pair of platform sneakers. Cloud styled the blazer with nothing underneath, giving the pastel pantsuit a bit of sex appeal. And in terms of accessories, Musgraves only carried a small, bubblegum clutch that blended in with her pants — no big diamonds in sight. Makeup artist Moani Lee worked with a shimmery, rose-tinted eye palette and a matte warm pink lipstick, while hairstylist Giovanni Delgado tousled her signature, waist-length jet-black hair. 

Yee — and we cannot stress this enough — haw.
