OFFSTAGE: Miranda Lambert: the Gowns, the Shoes, the Hairspray

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

The fabulous news about Miranda Lambert’s winning looks at Sunday (April 3) night’s ACM Awards is that you can practically re-create the look yourself at home. Well, actually, maybe you can’t quite afford the glitterlicious Gianmarco Lorenzi pumps or the strappy Jimmy Choo sandals. Or the pink Nina Runsdorf chandelier earrings and the Sevan Bicakci cuff bracelet. Or, for that matter, the three designer gowns she wore throughout the night. So what can you do to steal Lambert’s look? Three words: Big Sexy Hair. That’s what InStyle found out was the kind of hairspray her stylist used to get those messy blond waves Lambert was rocking, and it’s only about $15 at most drug stores. And on her lips, she wore Too Faced Glamour Gloss which will run you about $20. I admit it’s kind of a lot for lip gloss, but it beats trying to rationalize a pair of $1,200 Jimmy Choos.
