Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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?

Who Wore Reem Acra Better Carrie Underwood or Zhang Ziyi

Carrie Underwood attended the 46th annual CMA Awards in Nashville, Tennessee wearing a Reem Acra gown from the designer’s Spring 2013 collection.

This gown is everything we would expect from Carrie: embellished, pretty and floaty.

She styled her look with a Swarovski clutch and, despite the light colour of her gown, she opted for heavy kohl-rimmed eyes.

Zhang Ziyi wore the same gown back in late December while attending the Chinese Music Charts Concert in Taipei, Taiwan.

Opting for Sergio Rossi pumps and dazzling Bulgari earrings, I much prefer her styling with a simple updo as opposed to Carrie’s curly pageant ‘do.

The updo is much more sophisticated and gives the look a cleaner finish.

Carrie Underwood In Katherine Feiner - Country to Country Portrait Session

Country superstars Tim McGraw, Vince Gill, Little Big Town, Kristian Bush, Carrie Underwood, Darius Rucker, LeAnn Rimes and Brantley Gilbert will take to the London stage at the O2 Arena in London this weekend for the two-day C2C: Country to Country festival.

Carrie Underwood, who will be performing on Sunday, took part in a portrait session to promote the event at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London on Wednesday, wearing a Katherine Feiner Fall 2013 dress.

The beautiful fuchsia-pink cap-sleeved dress, with an embroidered silver detail decorating the waistline, was styled with simple nude pumps and subtle jewels.

Those signature glossy blonde curly locks and a glossy pout completed her look.

Is Carrie in need of a new ‘do?

Carrie Underwood In Roberto Cavalli - 2013 Grammy Awards

Carrie Underwood was one of the first celebrities to hit the red carpet Sunday evening at the Los Angeles Staples Center.

Nominated for two Grammy awards, the country music songstress wore a black, strapless Roberto Cavalli gown for her big night.

The lace and embroidered, curve-hugging mermaid silhouette looked so elegant on the singer. The look was unexpectedly elegant, in fact, given the rock ‘n roll vibe of the typical Grammy carpet.

Carrie’s dress had a very slight sweetheart neckline which was a perfect cut to show off her 381-carat diamond necklace from Johnathon Arndt. She may have brought ladylike style to the event, but she sure didn’t leave any want for bling.

To keep the classy vibe continuing into the beauty department she paired the look with loose waves, a smokey eye and nude lip.

The 2012 American Country Awards took place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada yesterday evening.

Usually there are a few stand outs from these country music events, but last night they were all equally meh.

Where is Taylor Swift when you need her?

Carrie Underwood: I do like Carrie’s peach lace Georges Chakra Couture bubble dress with lines of pearls, but the B Brian Atwood ‘Cassiane’ fringe sandals and same old, same old hairstyle kill this look for me.

LeAnn Rimes: The singer kept it simple, wearing a black Dolce & Gabbana ruched stretch-crepe dress with a scooped neckline. Her snakeskin Tom Ford pumps keep things interesting, but her white Tom Ford clutch is quite the head scratcher.

Kristin Chenoweth: The actress/singer was my favourite at this event – I’m sure I don’t need to explain why – wearing a Rafael Cennamo electric-blue gown. The vibrant bustier gown with corset detailing was styled with blue-toned Martin Katz jewels.

Miranda Lambert: Usually one for wearing gowns at country music events, Miranda opted for a high-neck Reem Acra Fall 2012 black-and-gold mini dress. Unfortunately, the risk did not pay off for her. The look is not particularly flattering and the high bun is too cutesy for her.

With the exception of Kristin who looks flawless, they all can and have done much better.

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.
