WHO: Carrie Underwood WHERE & WHEN: 2013 CMT Music Awards on June 5, 2013. WEARING: Oscar de la Renta dress, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes. MY VERDICT: After rocking a playful aqua short suit on the purple carpet, Carrie was back in her signature a-line silhouette for her beautiful CMT Music Awards performance of "See You Again". The Country songbird wore a pretty blush sequin embroidered silk organza Oscar de la Renta dress. Although this Fall 2013 design was never seen on the runway, a similar black design was presented with a white lace pattern replacing the sequins.
WHO: Carrie Underwood WHERE & WHEN: 2013 CMT Music Awards on June 5, 2013. WEARING: EDITION by Georges Chakra top and shorts, Swarovski clutch. MY VERDICT: Mint and icy blues are two of the hottest colors this season, and Carrie Underwood embraced the current trend by combining both with this cool summer-ready aquamarine short suit at the CMT Music Awards. The "Blown Away" singer hit the purple carpet wearing an EDITION by Georges Chakra geometric sequin-embellished jacket with tulle panels at the neck and shoulders with a matching pair of trouser crepe shorts.
WHO: Carrie Underwood WHERE & WHEN: 55th Annual Grammy Awards on February 10, 2013. WEARING: Roberto Cavalli dress, Swarovski clutch MY VERDICT: I think I hyped up my Wish List choices for Carrie so much that when I actually saw what she wore to the Grammys, I was kind of disappointed. That's not to say that her strapless Roberto Cavalli gown with a beaded motif pattern and fishtail hem wasn't beautiful, because it was. I just set myself up for boldness--for color. I liked the drama of Carrie's dress, but the diamond necklace feels out of place. It's too bright for the fabric and style, therefore I would have rather seen her in darker tone jewelry, you know, more along the lines of what Miley Cyrus rocked a pre-Grammy party.
