Reba McEntire Rocks Famous '90s Red Dress Like It Ain't No Thing at 2018 ACM Awards
The 2018 Academy of County Music Awards host wears the same dress she wore to the 1993 CMA Awards, 25 years later.
Last night's Academy of Country Music Awards was a tale of many dresses. From Nicole Kidman's gold long-sleeved gown to Maren Morris' green-and-purple shimmering number, many stars were dressed to the nines in new and impressive frocks.
The night's emcee however, Reba McEntire, threw it back to 1990s by donning the iconic red dress she wore at the 1993 CMA Awards. 25 years may have passed since she sang "Does He Love You" in that bold gown, but Reba wore it just as beautifully.
During the awards show, Reba also aced an encore performance of the 1993 hit single with Linda Davis, this time with her daughter-in-law Kelly Clarkson.
Considering the dress has its own Wikipedia page and has been on display at the Country Music Hall of Fame, you may not be surprised to learn that the form-fitting dress stirred up some controversy. Designed by Sandy Spika, the partially sheer top and plunging neckline certainly caught the media's attention.
“It was very revealing and I didn’t know that!” McEntire told People in 2016. “When I put it on in the dressing room at the Grand Ole Opry for the show, I thought, ‘Maybe it’s just the lighting in here.’ And when I walked out on the stage, I heard the audience go ‘Oooooh!’ And I thought, ‘Dang, I look good!'”
