New Moms Rock the CMT Awards

The average spectator of The Country Music Television Awards may think Carrie Underwood was the star of the night (she snagged her fifth “Video of the Year” win), but we know there’s three other ladies who deserve just as much credit.

New mamas Jessie James Decker, Hillary Scott and Kristen Bell graced the CMT red carpet, deservedly donning some figure-flattering little dresses. At a time when “formalwear” usually means maxi dress at best, these ladies serve as beacons of hope for postpartum fashionistas everywhere.

In this little black dress, the country queen and reality star is definitely thinking of her 2009 hit "I Look So Good."

Hillary Scott

With this cute floral/stripe combo and sexy slit, the front woman of Lady Antebellum will really be wondering why you don't take her downtown anymore.

Kristen Bell

It's the third time that this hilarious actress hosted the CMT Awards. But as she told Twitter, it was the first time she was on double duty of hosting and pumping!
