Carrie Underwood In Ralph & Russo Couture - 2013 CMA Awards

I was stunned when I saw Carrie Underwood on the red carpet for the 47th annual CMA Awards held at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee yesterday evening.

Firstly because the pageant hair has finally given way to a sleeker ‘do.

Also because she wore a breathtaking Ralph & Russo Couture dusky-pink long-sleeved sheer gown enriched with delicate rose-gold floral-and-crystal embellishments.

Having seen this beauty in the designer’s atelier, it’s a delight to see it not only brought to life, but worn so beautifully.

Carrie styled the look with Jimmy Choo metallic-rose-gold accessories including their ‘Fayme’ sandals and ‘Cloud’ clutch.

Yesterday it was announced that Ralph & Russo will present their first runway show during Couture fashion week in January. This was a great way to mark that announcement.
