Throwback Thursday: Shania Twain’s Red Carpet Fashion Through the Years

The Newest CMT Artist of a Lifetime Has a Lifetime of Excellent Fashion

When we think Shania Twain, one word comes to mind: Legend.

Having sold more than 75 million albums worldwide, she is the top-selling female country artist of all time, and we couldn’t be more excited to honor her with the Artist of a Lifetime Award at the upcoming CMT Artists of the Year celebration.

While the “Any Man of Mine” singer has certainly demonstrated her ability to dominate the country charts, she’s also the queen of another arena, the red carpet.

Let’s spend this Throwback Thursday obsessing over our favorite Shania red carpet looks, shall we?
