The Country Music Television Awards 2012, held at Nashville, saw celebrities dressed in short dresses - pretty and sexy.

Singer Carrie Underwood dazzled in a charcoal Randi Rahm mini-dress, revealing stunning legs. Underwood won Video of the Year for her song Good Girl, which she performed live later in the evening.

According to US magazine, Underwood wore jewellery worth approximately £13,000 from Tiffany & Co. She opted for Gio Diev ankle-cuff booties to match the sparkling short dress.

Miranda Lambert, meanwhile, chose a strapless Georges Hobeika Signature Collection dress, Giuseppe Zanotti heels, ear rings by J/Hadley and bangles by Kara Ackerman. The show was hosted by Kristen Bell, who wore a gold embroidered Reem Acra gown from the designer's spring/summer 2012 collection and Graziela ear rings. That wasn't all she wore, though. She changed into a Collette Dinnigan dress midway, let her hair loose on her shoulders and put on bright red lipstick. Singer Sara Evans and daughter Olivia arrived in dazzling short dresses.

Hayden Panettiere came in a swingy cream skirt by Praven paired with an embellished Giorgio Armani bodice and black Christian Louboutin heels. Jennie Garth came in a strapless sea-green dress. Kelly Pickler wore a pink Herve Leger by Max Azria dress from the Spring 2012 collection and teamed it with Giuseppe Zanotti peep-toe heels.
