Best and worst dressed at the 2016 CMT Music Awards

The CMT Awards on Wednesday night brought in big names, amazing performances and breathtaking fashion -- but not all attendees hit a high note on the red carpet.

We're all for sexy, sheer looks, but Jessie James Decker looked like she slipped a tablecloth over a one-piece bathing suit in this poorly-executed interpretation of the trend. Kelsea Ballerini, on the other hand, nailed it and flashed her undies in a sheer black lace skirt over a patterned tank top. Long, beachy waves and flawless makeup completed her sexy, edgy look.

While the event called for more fun, casual styles, Jamie-Lynn Spears looked a little too low-key in a soft spaghetti strap romper that felt too informal for the red carpet. Singer Brooke Eden also rocked a beachy look but turned heads for the right reasons in a more structured pink beaded minidress with a groovy print. We love the '60s-inspired bell sleeves! A tousled updo and sexy nude lace-up sandals completed her knockout look.
