Reba McEntire wore a red dress during a performance at the 1993 Country Music Association Awards. The red dress with the plunging neckline and sequins was designed by stylist Sandy Spika, and McEntire wore it during a duet performance of "Does He Love You" with Linda Davis.[1] McEntire later said, "I got more press off that dress than if I'd won entertainer of the year."[1] According to McEntire when her little sister, Susie, saw her on stage she leaned over and said, "Oh Mama!" But all Mama said was, "You need a few more sequins".[2] The dress had a lasting influence and was even worn by men to her future shows in fancy dress.[3]

The dress was showcased for some time at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville.[1]
