Gwyneth Paltrow may be excited and nervous to sing at Wednesday’s Country Music Awards, but what she felt on the red carpet Monday night at the Country Strong premiere was purely physical. “I’m in pain,” she told PEOPLE. And the actress wasn’t talking about the 20 pounds that she gained—and quickly lost!—for the role, but her black mesh Lanvin stilettos! “I feel like I’m in a torture vice,” she revealed to PEOPLE of the sky-high heels, which she paired with a black Chado Ralph Rucci dress. But Paltrow, who landed in Nashville Monday morning to rehearse for her performance at the CMA’s, isn’t the only A-lister to don the chic Lanvin pumps from the label’s spring 2011 runway collection: Just one day earlier, Rachel McAdams braved the red carpet in the same studded heels at the Morning Glory premiere in N.Y.C. And when not busy suffering for fashion, Gwyneth’s been blogging about some of her favorite spots to shop and eat in the country music capital—even if she doesn’t get a chance to visit them this week. “I don’t think I’m going to have time this trip. They’re working me hard,” said the stylish star, who made her country singing debut in the movie. So is there more country music in store for the fashionista? “I’m not sure. I’m open. We’ll see what happens!” — Wendy Grossman
