Historically, the CMA Awards red carpet provides a chance for female country beauties to bring out their inner Cinderella. The ACM Awards, on the other hand, are more suited for channeling runway models on trendy designer catwalks. The Las Vegas-based ACM show has more of an 'anything goes' vibe when it comes to fashion. That means higher hemlines, lower necklines and lots of rolling the fashion dice.

Now that November's ball gowns are back in their garment bags, we can't wait to see what comes out of the closet for the April 1 ACMs. The Boot teamed up with HuffPost Style Editor Sarah Kelsey to make our "fashion wish-list" for some of country music's hottest ladies. Flip through pictures below of the stars in their formal best at last year's CMAs, followed by our picks for what they should wear to the ACMs, along with Sarah's expert fashion commentary below each photo.
