Reba McEntire's CMAs Look Is Turning Heads

Music award shows are less about the awards and more about everything else they bring — the awkward moments, emotional exchanges, musical performances, and last but not least — the outfits. Red carpet looks have ranged from simple and classy to extravagant and elegant. Sometimes the looks turn heads for positive reasons, while other times, the ensembles face harsh criticism. 

That said, many fans thought the Country Music Awards on Nov. 11, 2020, brought nothing but magical looks to the stage. Maren Morris' lace ensemble stunned as she accepted her awards, while others, mostly the men, took a more relaxed route with bomber jackets, black tees, denim jackets, and jeans. 

But throughout the night, one celeb stunned over and over again. Reba McEntire, who made a debut with her boyfriend Rex Linn on the red carpet, was truly center stage with her choice in clothing. Indeed, the country music icon (who celebrated her 65th birthday in March 2020) stood out from the rest as a timeless classic, not only because of her smooth vocals that never fail to impress in songs like Mac Davis' "In the Ghetto," but also because she packed a punch behind every outfit.

Reba McEntire's wardrobe stole the show

Throughout the night, Reba McEntire, who hosted the show alongside Darius Rucker, stole the spotlight with her looks (which changed at least three times, to count). Perhaps the one that shone brightest in the spotlight (quite literally) was a black-collared, floor-length cape featuring multicolor sequins that she paired with an all-black look underneath. "Is this thing on?" the singer posted on Twitter alongside a gif of the outfit shining like Christmas lights. And, as usual, Twitter fans didn't skip a beat in calling the singer "gorgeous," "amazing," "Electric Reba," and "stunning."  

Her second look, also black, featured a low-cut back, sheer sleeves, and silver details that shone just as bright as her previous outfit under the spotlight as she announced performers. Although her third look was not as luminous, it was still sleek and a somber compliment to the song "In the Ghetto" that she sang with Rucker. She sported a turtleneck, full-length black dress paired with a long cross necklace. It didn't have the oomph of her sequined look or the flare of her sheer-sleeved dress, but the simplicity of the turtleneck outfit brought out McEntire's red mane and her overall elegance. 

At 65, McEntire made at least one thing clear — she dressed to impress and impress she did.
