While there were a few fashion duds, there were more than enough fashion studs and beauty queens to make a seat along the 2012 American Country Awards red carpet quite a find. The stars on this Best Dressed list didn't drape themselves in formal wear like they do at other award shows. Instead, the crowd at this Las Vegas ceremony combined West Coast style with country-chic traditions. And five stars really got it right.

Best Dressed at the 2012 ACAs:

Lauren Alaina makes our fashion highlight reel once again with this flirty, floor-length burst of sunshine. Yellow is a great color for her hair and skin tone, and she wore it with the confidence of a woman with twice her red carpet experience.

Casey James is the second former 'American Idol' singer to make the Best Dressed list in 2012. His aqua blazer and denim pants really pulled the blue of his eyes forward. Normally jeans don't find much applause at country music awards shows, but the Texas-born country singer drew our attention away from his pants.

Carrie Underwood's peach frock is a little sassy, but plenty tame enough that she won't be a part of any "What happens in Vegas ..." humor in the coming year. The singer forever looks like the girl next door. Her bright smile may be country music's best fashion accessory.

Florida Georgia Line are proving that their fashion sense is as good as their hook-filled country-rock anthems. The duo brought just enough shimmer to the Vegas red carpet, but looked casual enough to still get into all the most fun parties they're sure to be seeking after the ACAs and beyond.

Gloriana get the hipster award of 2012 with their new styles, showcased at the 2012 American Country Awards. The Gossin brothers certainly aren't afraid of hair gel, with Tom Gossin adding dark frames and a skinny tie to complete his look at the December show. Our favorite part of this choreographed wardrobe? Rachel Reinert's purple heels. They're the perfect splash of color.
