OFFSTAGE: Miranda Lambert’s Sparkle: A Tutorial

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

Miranda Lambert had on a black Georges Hobeika dress and Giuseppe Zanotti heels at the CMT Music Awards on Wednesday (June 6) night. But here’s the part of her outfit I loved the most: Her all-over glow. Not just that she’s-glowing-from-the-inside kind of thing. I mean, she was seriously sparkly. And she had Sally Hansen to thank for that. “Oh my gosh, we have the best secret,” Lambert and her Pistol Annies bandmates Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley confided in me. Then Lambert was kind enough to give me step-by-step instructions of how to steal the look. “You put Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs on all over. Then, you put the airbrush glitter spray on  top. So it’s like double shine,” she said. “And it doesn’t stink, it doesn’t rub off or streak. And, it’s like $11. $11? Can you believe that?”
