When it comes to the Country Music Awards, normal red carpet rules do not apply. The unspoken goal is to have the most glitz, glamour and grace. As country music's darling who has now hosted the CMAs five times, Carrie Underwood manages to steal the spotlight on the red carpet every time. Her ombr cap-sleeved gown by Reem Acra hits all the right notes for country music's golden girl.
No fair; we want to meet Miss Piggy! Maybe she'd share the inspiration behind her new MAC Collection or give us a sneak peek of her new movie. Carrie Underwood gets to do all the cool stuff. [Stamps foot like an impudent child.]
Carrie Underwood takes the classic little black dress and gives it a country singer makeover. What we mean is: She added jewels and spangles galore. The singer kept her hair in a simple updo and let her dress (and sexy lace booties) do all the talking.
Carrie Underwood is always recognizable with her flowing blonde locks, but the singer isn't afraid to wear outfits on both sides of the spectrum. She went from her spangled LBD to this flowing pink floral dress and tumbling curls. She sort of looks like she's wearing a modern version of Scarlett O'Hara's famous curtain dress. But one we'd want to wear, too.
Underwood's pink floral gown worked because of its simple strapless top and mullet-style skirt, which prevented the fabric from overwhelming the singer. This green tie-dyed number has way too much going on, especially when paired with loose curls instead of a sleek updo. Next!
Clap your hands say "yeah" for Carrie Underwood's "smooth criminal meets Fosse" outfit. Although we're not big on "formal shorts," we do like this drastic costume change-up from her previous flowing gowns.
What really would have brought this scripted exchange during which Carrie Underwood played with a Brad Paisley doll home is if Underwood had worn a paisley print dress. Literalism--we're all about it! Also: Brad Paisley, why so serious?
