She’s not just rocking the stage – she’s also rocking the red carpet.
Miranda Lambert made an entrance at the CMA Awards Wednesday in Nashville, Tenn., when she showed off her slim silhouette.
The 29-year-old country singer looked striking in a dress that amply highlighted her new figure: a curve-hugging cobalt gown with plunging décolletage and cinched waist.
Completing the look? Her best accessory of the evening: dashing husband Blake Shelton, who clutched his missus as she beamed for the cameras.
Lambert has been giving fans ample chances to ogle her new look. The night before, she stepped out at the BMI Country Awards – also in Nashville – where she wowed in a chic little black dress.
After taking home the award for female vocalist of the year toward the end of the night, Lambert entered the press room.
“I’ve been working out, but this thing is heavy!” she said of her new award.
And as for her new figure? She attributes it all to her desire to age gracefully.
“I just feel like I needed to get ahead of the game – I’m going to be 30 on Sunday and people say, are you OK about turning 30 and I guess I am, but I guess I m not because I feel like everybody always says ‘It goes downhill from there.’ So I just thought, maybe if I get ahead of it a little I won’t have to work so hard later in life,” she explained.
