Carrie Underwood In Katharine Kidd – 2012 CMT Artists Of The Year

Carrie Underwood joined Hayden Panettiere on the red carpet yesterday evening for the 2012 CMT Artists Of The Year at The Factory in Franklin, Tennessee.

The country singer took a night off from wearing her favourite sparkling gowns to don a Katharine Kidd Fall 2012 jumpsuit.

Featuring a sheer yoke, draped panels and a crystal beaded trim around the waistline, this is a more modern look than we are used to seeing from Carrie.

I love the simple styling, which included red Giuseppe Zanotti pumps with a black patent toe-cap, a Jill Milan ‘Holland Park’ clutch and a selection of Vahan bracelets.

Even with a modern look, the singer still sports pageant hair. Just imagine how major this look would have been with a simple ponytail or slicked back do.

  • Natalie19

    Exactly, FC

    Why, why oh why this hair?? always….

  • Jess2

    From the neck down this is an awesome look and I am excited to see Carrie trying something new. Now to work on he hair and makeup because I agree that is too pageant like.

  • EmmaWoodhouse

    Not a fan of jumpsuits or minimalism, so I prefer her princess gowns 🙂

  • Ella

    See, I like the hair….I like it being more “big” while her accessories and her outfit is more on the modern side. So it all works for me =)

  • Amy

    cool! she looks young and modern here. About the hair, she gets a pass, baby steps!

    • Alina

      I agree. 🙂

  • gabis

    Pageant hair and pageant makeup which I hate in every look she donates so I like this only from the neck down. Her barbie doll makeup gives me nausea.

  • shelli

    I always roll my eyes when I see this girl. I love your comment about the hair! I have the same thought every time when I see her and Kate.

  • Beta

    this is my favourite all time Carrie Underwood look. Id love different hairstyle (and a darker shade of blond) and a more natural makeup, but still its a HUGE improvement on past looks!

  • shap_half

    One of the best looks she’s had ever.

  • Linda

    First thing I noticed too, unfortunately. I love that she’s branching out, but the hair is the first thing you see and I have to mentally block it out to really see the clothes.

  • Christine

    This would’ve been BDOTW worthy if her hair was slicked back.

    • Yeliz

      Yes, such a shame. I totally love the jumpsuit.

  • Mike Neb

    I like that she is trying new things. One of her best looks in a long time.
