  • Kacey Musgraves has always had a unique sense of style.

  • The country-singer-turned-crossover-star has been rocking red carpets since 2013.

  • Here are some the Grammy-winner's most daring looks.

Kacey Musgraves attended the 2013 Country Music Association (CMA) Awards that November in a skin-colored minidress with a sheer overlay covered in flowers.

The country star's first album, "Same Trailer Different Park" was released in March 2013.

Her dress was designed by Blumarine.

To attend an event in January 2014, Musgraves donned this white column dress with strategically placed cutouts on the chest.

To let the dress speak for itself, she tied her hair back in a simple ponytail. Makeup-wise, she went for a hot-pink lipstick shade.

At her first Grammy Awards in January 2014, Musgraves wore this tiered, blush-colored gown with a sheer panel on the back.

The "Follow Your Arrow" singer stunned in this Armani Privé dress that was covered in Swarovski crystals. That evening, she took home the Grammy for best country album, her first of many.

Musgraves' look at the 2014 CMA Awards in November is all about the dramatically teased hair.

Musgraves' Oscar de la Renta dress was covered in sparkling embroidery and featured a sheer neckline, but, really, the most noteworthy thing about this look is her Dolly Parton-esque bouffant.

Later that night, she changed into this silver sequined dress with totally sheer sides.

In a truly daring turn of events, Musgraves had to ditch the underwear she was wearing with this dress before she went on stage to perform, Yahoo reported.

"They were the stick-on kind, I mean, just look at this dress," she said. "They were stuck on, and then they weren't stuck on, so I literally had to rip 'em off and throw them somewhere."

At the 2015 Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards in May, Musgraves wore a bubblegum-pink lacy dress with a low neckline.

The bold look, which was designed by Christian Siriano, was paired Musgraves' deep purple lipstick, a black belt. The skirt was so roomy that she joked to People, "I have sweatpants on and Nike sliders under this."

That same month, Musgraves performed at CMA's Country Christmas event in a crystal-encrusted mermaid gown with a feathery trim and a sheer skirt.

Musgraves' "Golden Hour"-approved dress — there's a song called "Butterflies" on the album — is actually an archival piece from a 1995 Versace collection. The dress features two hip-high slits and a corset-esque top.

She stuck with the nature theme at the 2018 BMI Country Awards in November with this black minidress covered in flowers.

This event might've been honoring Dolly Parton, but Musgraves looks more like Cher to us, with her straight jet-black hair and J. Mendel gown.

Musgraves started off Grammy night in 2019 in this beige tulle gown inspired by the fan on the "Golden Hour" album cover.

"I love this dress — it immediately struck me because it reminded me of the fan that was on my album cover," she told People of her Valentino Haute Couture gown that featured a berry-colored ribbon belt.

But she ended the night up four Grammys in this silk minidress with exaggerated ruffled sleeves.

The snow-white set was designed by David Koma — and its silver tassels perfectly match her silver chain-link heels by Stella Luna.

Once again, Musgraves proved her love for marigold in this shiny suit at an event in February 2020, and in another classic Musgraves move, she opted for no shirt.

No one can accuse Musgraves of being boring — this Valentino dress and ostrich-feather hat was one of the most talked-about looks of the night.

The next day, she attended the 2021 Met Gala in a skirt that looked like liquid silver.

From the waist-up, it just looks like Musgraves wore a simple black turtleneck — but her silver skirt with a thigh-high slit was anything but typical. The entire outfit was designed by Ralph Lauren.

After being named one of TIME's Women of the Year, Musgraves attended the March 2022 party in this floral pink gown with a keyhole cutout and leather gloves.
