It’s not every day the Nashville crowd dresses up in poodle skirts and varsity jackets. But when Miranda Lambert asks you to, you oblige.
“Thanks for being good sports and dressing up for this sock hop,” she told guests gathered in a Music City event space Monday night to celebrate her latest chart-topper, “Automatic.” “I told [co-writers Nicolle Galyon and Natalie Hemby] that if this song went to number one we’d have a sock hop to celebrate, so we did!”
The venue was decorated to look like a high school gym, and Lambert, Galyon and Hemby each wore pastel prom dresses accessorized with demure pearls and wrist corsages – all a nod to the nostalgic sentiment of the song, the singer’s seventh No. 1 hit (and her fourth as a writer). The tune is off her new album, Platinum.
Just as noteworthy, though, was Lambert’s new bob hairdo, which stylist Lee Wright dished about to PEOPLE.
