Carrie Underwood attended the 2011 American Country Awards on Monday night.

The country singer wore a strapless Maria Lucia Hohan cream cocktail dress with ruffled skirt.

Carrie paired the simple dress with ‘look-at-me’ shoes by Ryan Haber.

The cream leather ankle-strap heels have purple detailing and gem-encrusted peep-toes.

If the strapless dress is lacking in detailing for you, I’m sure Carrie’s shoes will make up for it.

Carrie cautiously kept the rest of her look simple with a soft updo, a silver Swarovski clutch and stunning silver earrings.

The pairing of purple heels with this girly cream dress was an interesting choice, but there is something about ankle straps which makes the shoes feel quite surgical, like she broke both her ankles.
