Carrie Underwood had a very busy night co-hosting the 2012 CMA Awards with Brad Paisley at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, last night.
There were 11 looks in total, not counting her Reem Acra red carpet look.
First up the singer wore a Jovani nude fully embellished cocktail dress. Dazzling Jacob & Co. earrings and equally bedazzling Fabi strappy sandals accessorized her look.
I loved her navy Sally LaPointe Fall 2012 peplum dress with a cut-out waist. This isn’t a look we usually see on Carrie; I love the dress but I’m not sure I would’ve styled it with that silver Amrapali statement necklace. The dress is making a loud enough statement on its own. She opted for silver metallic Jerome C. Rousseau sandals for this look.
I’m not sure Carrie needed her Katerina Maxine earrings with this Jenny Packham Spring 2012 dress which already had such a beautiful beaded and embellished bib. What do you think? Silver ankle-strap Gio Diev ‘Palma’ sandals and a Graziela cocktail ring accessorized this look.
Carrie was radiant wearing an Ines Di Santo black strapless gown with a delicate Chantilly lace trim. On this occasion I love the jewels which included Sutra earrings and a Rona Pfeiffer ring. You can just about make out her gold Giuseppe Zanotti ankle-strap heels via the side slit in her gown.
Next up was a beautiful Alice + Olivia ‘Azala’ boatneck sequin flare dress which she wore with her silver Jerome C. Rousseau sandals from look 1. Mixing metals aside, this is an uber-cute look styled with Brumani earrings and a Graziela ring.
Carrie looked breathtaking wearing a red strapless Chagoury Couture gown with Palladium by Jacob & Co earrings and a Norman Silverman bracelet.
One of my favourite looks from Carrie was her ethereal Christian Siriano Spring 2013 strapless nude tulle gown with grey appliqués. Ivory Tony Bowls shoes, Dana Rebecca Designs earrings and a silver Graziela statement bracelet completed this stunning look.
Going from sweet to sexy, Carrie wore a black-and-gold Edition by Georges Chakra Fall 2012 mini dress with a peplum detail and sheer yoke styled with black Jerome C. Rousseau peep-toe booties and Irit Design earrings.
Look 9 was designed by Tony Ward. The sleeveless white ruched look with a peplum waist may seem conservative until you get to the footwear. Gio Diev ‘Roanne’ black patent and gold mesh open-toe booties give the look an edge.
Carrie ended her (and her stylist’s) busy night wearing a Basler gown. The sky-blue gown with a bubble rise-and-fall skirt was styled with Gio Dev ‘Nara’ ankle-strap heels, which I’m not too fond of, Sutra earrings and a Demarco ring.
The Country singer stunned audience wearing a black Tsemaye ‘Binitie’ high-low gown for her performance. Carrie paired the one-of-a-kind gown, which features sheer sleeves and a black geometric leather pattern on the chest with a silver belt and rockstar gloves for added glam.
The Siriano followed by the Ines Di Santo gown are my favourites.
