Carrie Underwood In Naeem Khan - 2013 ACM Awards

Just when I thought that a country music event would pass without a Naeem Khan gown taking to the red carpet, up pops Carrie Underwood.

The singer donned a gown from the designer’s Resort 2013 collection for the 2013 ACM Awards, held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada yesterday evening.

While it’s not the type of gown I was expecting – embellished, of course – Carrie does look gorgeous wearing this peony-print strapless ballgown, to which she added a black gazar belt to give more definition at the waist.

I’m not usually the biggest fan of Carrie’s style, but on this occasion she wins me over. Both the type of gown and the styling are refreshing, as is the hairstyle, which was a wavy updo.

David Yurman chandelier earrings, a David Yurman pinkie ring, and a black Jimmy Choo clutch completed her look.

Do you also love Carrie’s look or will she always be a pageant princess to you?
