Who Wore Reem Acra Better…Carrie Underwood or Zhang Ziyi?

Carrie Underwood sparkled in a Reem Acra gold-embellished gown back in November for the 2011 CMA Awards.

The country singer looked absolutely radiant, especially with the addition of gold accessories, flawless makeup, and soft blonde waves.

Zhang Ziyi wore the same cap-sleeve gown to the 12th Annual Chinese Film Media Awards in China back in May.

The Asian actress also does the dress justice, adding gold chandelier earrings, a simple gold timepiece and even her Louboutins were sparkling with gold.

This is a hard one as both women look gorgeous in the gown, but my vote goes to Zhang because I prefer the gold gown on someone with darker hair.

That is the only way I could separate the two.

Carrie Underwood In Randi Rahm – 2012 CMT Music Awards

Carrie Underwood channeled her inner rockstar at the 2012 CMT Music Awards, which took place in Nashville on Wednesday evening.

Opting for a surprising black ensemble, Carrie showed off some leg in a silver-and-black sequined Randi Rahm mini dress.

The country singer accessorized the look with edgy Gio Diev ankle-cuff booties and a matching Rene Caovilla black satin and Swarovski crystal clutch.

I was completely shocked to see that Carrie did not wear yet another tulle-heavy gown, especially for such a major country music event.

Whilst I am ecstatic to see something new from Carrie on the red carpet, those ankle boots bring the whole look down for me.

Carrie Underwood In Oscar de la Renta – 2012 Billboard Music Awards

Carrie Underwood had a Cinderella moment on the white carpet at the MGM Grand Garden where the 2012 Billboard Music Awards was held in Las Vegas, Nevada.

She wore one of my favourite looks from the Oscar de la Renta Fall 2012 collection.

I adore this silver-and-rose tulle draped gown. Everyone gasped when it took to the runway during New York Fashion Week.

It’s no surprise that the wearer was Carrie, as she does love a frothy gown.

Oscar de la Renta accessories accompanied her dress. They included a pearl-and-crystal sapphire ‘Cara’ vanity case and silver paillette open-toe heels.

Whilst I do love a big dose of sugar on the red carpet, the look would’ve been less sickly sweet had Carrie opted to wear her hair back.

With the skirt being so frou frou, the look would’ve been balanced out with a sleeker hairstyle.

Dark eye makeup and a nude lip shade completed her look.

Carrie Underwood In Theia – ‘American Idol’ Top 5 to 4 Live Elimination Show

Carrie Underwood returned to the ‘American Idol’ stage on Thursday evening for a very dramatic performance of her new single ‘Blown Away’ which is the title track of her new album.

The country singer, who found fame on the show, wore a Theia Spring 2012 bridal gown.

Her stylist customized the gown with a thigh-high split by adding chiffon accents on the shoulder and a black sash to the waist.

In a further attempt to lose the bridal feel of the original look, the singer added GIO DIEV grey ostrich velvet and black patent sandals with black lacquer Samurai heels to give the look an edge.

Do the modifications improve this look for you? Or do you prefer the presented version?

Carrie Underwood For Glamour US June 2012

Carrie Underwood graces the cover for Glamour’s June 2012 US issue wearing a coral Rochas shirt dress.

The country singer is taken out of her comfort zone, fashionwise, as Ben Watts captures her wearing Isabel Marant, Tory Burch, L’Wren Scott and Marc Jacobs with not a single sequin in sight.

She talks to Glamour about her new album, the songwriting process and she talks about her relationship being in the public eye.

You can read the whole interview over at Glamour.com. Below are some extracts.

On her new album, Blown Away: “There’s a happy-go-lucky feeling to some of it: A nice spring day, put the top down, turn it up, enjoy the world. But there’s a darker feeling too. We kill a couple people. It wouldn’t be a Carrie Underwood album without a revenge song on it. People really like when I do that. I don’t mean to. I don’t hate men that much. But it turns out so well!”Read More…

Carrie Underwood In Abed Mahfouz – 2012 Academy Of Country Music Awards

Carrie Underwood gave us no surprises when she walked the red carpet for the 2012 Academy of Country Music Awards, which were held on Sunday in Las Vegas, Nevada.

She did look gorgeous wearing an Abed Mahfouz strapless gown with embellished details and a thigh-high split.

Diamond jewelry and Oscar de la Renta silver peep-toe platform pumps accessorized the look.

Beauty-wise she opted for large curls, dark eye makeup, and a shimmering coral lip colour.

Carrie does look great, but I feel like we’ve been there and done this gown several times before.

This picture could easily be from 2005.

Carrie Underwood In Oscar de la Renta – Nordstrom Symphony Fashion Show

Carrie Underwood attended the Nordstrom Symphony Fashion Show in Nashville, Tennessee on Tuesday.

The singer, who is known for her love of embellishments much like fellow country star Taylor Swift, opted for a sequin-free Oscar de la Renta Spring 2012 gown for the occasion.

Her navy gossamer v-neck gown was teamed with a black jewel buckle belt and a complementary Oscar de la Renta ‘Cara’ vanity sequin case.

I guess you can’t really rely on a country girl to really go sequin-free. They do like to dazzle, and who can blame them.

Carrie stuns with flawless, neutral makeup and a side swept updo, whilst adding statement jewels and navy peep-toes to complete her look.
