Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Carrie Underwood CMACarrie Underwood stunned on the red carpet of last night’s 47th annual CMA Awards, hosted at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. But that was only the beginning of the co-host’s impressive fashion run, as she made a grand total of eight wardrobe changes during the show. Surprisingly, she also managed to stay out of pageant land for most of the evening, as well.

Carrie kicked off the night with a cotton-candy confection of a dress; a pink petal-laced number by Christian Siriano. She accented the plunge-front, high-low gown with Brumani jewels, matching pink Christian Siriano sandals and a bubblegum-lacquered lip. Even though the look was sweet, it didn’t cross over into overly saccharine territory, perhaps due to the edgier silhouette.

Next up, she cut things short in a Georges Chakra Spring 2013 Couture navy cutout frock, with pink and orange colour-block panels and a sequin waistband. Sherbet-hued sandals from Christian Siriano and David Yurman jewels, along with a half-up, half-down ‘do, added the finishing touches.

Her shiny metallic Talbot Runhof wrap column dress was perhaps her most glamorous. She accessorized the glittery gown with a giant Baccarat ring and Sutra earrings, along with Ryan Haber shoes. A low side ‘do contributed to the old Hollywood appeal.

Carrie showed off her legs in one of her more daring ensembles of the evening from Indian designer, Alpana Neeraj. She complemented the sporty-sultry, bronze sequined jumper dress, which featured an exaggerated step hemline, with Rupert Sanderson peep-toe heels and a Melinda Maria ring. Her long, blonde waves and pretty makeup eased some of the edginess, though.

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.

Carrie Underwood In  Randi Rahm - Martell Foundation’s 2013 Honors Gala

Carrie Underwood attended the T.J. Martell Foundation’s 2013 Honors Gala, which supports research into AIDS, cancer and leukaemia, held at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City yesterday evening.

The country singer was honoured with the ‘Artist Achievement’ Award, which she collected wearing a Randi Rahm periwinkle tone-on-tone beaded tulle dress with a V-back.

There is no question that this is very much a ‘Carrie’ dress, as it is uber girlie and has plenty of embellishments.

Soft-pink Giuseppe Zanotti pointy-toe pumps, a nude clutch with a cluster of silver star embellishments, and Johnathon Arndt jewels accessorized the look.

A sweeping updo, smoky eyes and glossy lips provided the finishing touches.

In terms of embellishments; the clutch was a step too far.

Carrie Underwood In Romona Keveza - 2013 Emmy Awards

Carrie Underwood will be performing at the 2013 Emmy Awards held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Sunday evening.

She took to the red carpet wearing a Romona Keveza Fall 2013 strapless amethyst silk shantung taffeta gown featuring a sculpted bodice and ballgown skirt that she accented with a black waistband.

I’m not surprised to see the singer wearing one of the biggest gowns of the night, but I am surprised at how much I love it, as I often find her looks to be a tad cheesy.

Carrie styled her look with diamond jewels and side-swept tresses without a hint of pageant queen.

Like Blake Lively and Kate Bosworth, I noticed that Carrie is rocking a darker blonde hue. Is this a fall trend?

Carrie Underwood In Oscar de la Renta - Good Morning America

Carrie Underwood took up co-hosting duties on Good Morning America on Monday morning.

Her co-hosting duties at the CMAs and her journalism major stood her in good stead as she handled her role impeccably, covering reports on fashion and music, however, during the name-that-song challenge against GMA hosts Lara Spencer and George Stephanopoulos, Carrie paused for a good three or four seconds before finally realizing the song playing was her own 2006 smash, “Before He Cheats.”

The singer wore a pretty Oscar de la Renta printed fit-and-flare three-quarter-sleeved dress in autumnal hues of red and chocolate-brown from the designer’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection.

If you are betting that she wore black pumps you would be wrong as she considered the colour palette of her dress, opting for red patent-leather Mary Janes.

Carrie Underwood In Edition by Georges Chakra - 2013 CMT Music Awards

Carrie Underwood attended the 2013 CMT Music Awards held at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee on Wednesday evening.

The country crooner wore an Editions by Georges Chakra Spring 2013 aqua short suit featuring a geometric pattern and tulle inserts.

This is a nice change of pace for Carrie. However, her pewter Jimmy Choo ‘Vibe’ metallic peep-toes don’t work with her ensemble at all; even white peep-toes would’ve been preferable.

While her look was different, the pageant hair was very much intact. I could’ve forgiven the shoes had she tied her hair back.

A white crystallized Swarovski ‘Power’ clutch and David Yurman jewels completed her look.
