What’s it like to get ready with Miranda Lambert? We found out when the country star and her stylist Tiffany Gifford exclusively showed InStyle.com  her primping routine before last night’s 2012 CMT Music Awards. “Miranda loved the silhouette of her red carpet dress,” Gifford said of the Georges Hobeika black strapless dress. “It was modern Audrey Hepburn, and we of course had to throw some bling and rock and roll into it with the rock star shoes.” (Check out Gifford helping Lambert with her Giuseppe Zanotti caged heels in the photo!) All the prep work paid off—she walked the red carpet with her first-time nominated band Pistol Annies and took home the award for Female Video of the Year for her song “Over You.” Way to go!
