Kaitlyn Bristowe's Fuss-Free Look at the CMAs Is Totally Hot (PHOTO)

Designers usually knock down celebs' doors when it comes time to dress them for a high-profile event. Since she's still riding the fame wave from her recent Bachelorette stint, you'd imagine Kaitlyn Bristowe could have worn anything to the Country Music Awards -- which makes the fact that she chose a dress from her own closet and accessories from a mall even more impressive.


The season 11 Bachelorette strolled the red carpet in Nashville with fiancé Shawn Booth last night, appearing confident and stylish, but also remarkably casual for a big event. Kudos to her for having a good enough eye to select a geometric-patterned maxi dress with hues that complemented Shawn's sleek blue suit, but she certainly stood out from her sequinned peers:

When asked what she was wearing, Kaitlyn admitted she had no idea and said, "I picked up a couple of rings at Aldo today, and I had this [dress] in my closet, and I'm here!"

The 30-year-old looked gorgeous, as always, but it's refreshing to think she put in the same amount of effort to attend an event in which she knew paparazzi would be on hand to photograph her as some of us do to go out for cocktails and dinner on a Friday night.

The CMAs are a lot less uptight when it comes to fashion, and celebs are encouraged to show off their unique styles -- which explains the abundance of ruffles and pleats. Kaitlyn has good fashion sense, but she's also relaxed in her approach to dressing, so this informal dress makes sense on her. If she were presenting an award or performing on stage, we'd have to have a different conversation about the appropriateness of her I-just-pulled-this-out-of-the-closet dress.

But as a guest at the event, she did a great job of styling herself without any help -- and with accessories from Aldo, no less -- heck yes.
