Shania Twain made a splash at the 2023 CMT Music Awards on Sunday night in Austin, being accompanied by her husband Frédéric Thiébaud.

Her gorgeous Chanel two-piece definitely caught some attention, and the singer provided a glimpse of her glam process prior to the show.

She took to Instagram with a collection of photographs of her stunning pair of ensembles, including her Prabal Gurung cut-out dress for the carpet and her Chanel co-ord set for her on-stage moment.

Alongside several photographs of her individual pieces and even the jewelry she was adorned in, she added a snap from her make-up chair, all wigged up and ready to get dressed wearing her plush bathrobe.

Shania wrote alongside her photographs: "For me fashion is a powerful tool that helps to convey my personality and express my creativity and other than getting to hang out with my friends for the night, it's one of my favorite things about attending award shows! 

"Life is too short to wear boring clothes!! Thank you to the team behind my @cmt #CMTAwards looks."

The Grammy-winning star was the recipient of the Equal Play award of the night, which was presented to her by fellow singer Megan Thee Stallion, and her speech was quite powerful.

"I believe in all-inclusive country music," she said. "This is a genre of music with a rich history that raised and nurtured my own songwriting and performance and recording career from childhood. Currently, the industry standard does a real disservice to this."

This year's CMT Music Awards were the first ever to be hosted in Texas, and the special night took place at the Moody Center on April 2nd. They were hosted by three-time co-hosts Kelsea Ballerini – who made her red carpet debut with new beau Chase Stokes – and Kane Brown.

The night was peppered with more such powerful moments involving crossovers, such as Kelsea's performance with RuPaul's Drag Race queens, a statement against recent anti-drag bills, Alanis Morissette's tribute to Jagged Little Pill, and Gwen Stefani's CMTs debut with country star Carly Pearce.
