Carrie Underwood Performs At The Academy of Country Music Awards Wearing Rafael Cennamo


A big voice needs a big dress to perform in, and that was certainly what Carrie Underwood wore when she performed on stage at the Country Music Awards last night.

The singer wore a Rafael Cennamo merlot silk taffeta gown, with an exaggerated and dramatic ruffled train which completely took over the stage.

Prior to the event the dress was kept a huge – no pun intended – secret. At the rehearsal on Friday the deal was: no photos, no video and no describing the gown.

“The dress that I’ll be wearing during my performance is … It’s big,” she said. “There’s a lot — a lot of dress.”


She wasn’t lying.

    What?!?!?!

    Really? Why so much??

    It’s better than the typical dresses she has worn in the past.

    It was a change in direction, and I like it.

    I don’t know why, but the whole look reminds me of the opera singer from The Fifth Element.

    I LOVE THIS.
    You have no idea!

    She is one of the hugest stars of country music with an amazing voice. She deserves drama and recognition! This dress is every bit the drama and glamour she needs. I absolutely love it. It wasn’t a red carpet dress, it was a performance dress, and it was perfect.

    My grandma used to crochet these barbie-doll dresses that fit over the extra toilet paper roll and sat on the toilet tank. All I could think of while I tried to watch her perform.

    Yikes

    If everything about this dress works, it is the color that elevates it to another level.

    i love this dress, especially the color, and am glad it was kept a secret– but she does sometimes look like a barbie doll to me. even more so in the white dress Randi Rahm gown she wore the same day
