That Time Kendall Jenner and Carrie Underwood Rocked OG Paris Hilton Styles
Carry on! Carrie Underwood nailed every single look at the 2016 CMA Awards in Nashville on Wednesday, November 2. The nine-time co-host took every opportunity to dazzle, from the red carpet to the ceremony, where she paid homage to the show’s fiftieth year with dresses inspired by the decades. Scroll on to see every look she wore.
Dusty Pink Diva
Starting off strong! The “Before He Cheats” singer stunned in a beaded dusty pink Michael Cinco halter gown with Swarovski crystals, pearls and scattered organza flowers. She accessorized the dress with triangle-shaped Butani diamond earrings and diamond rings by Hearts on Fire and Harry Kotlar.
Underwood, who wore a gray one-shouldered Elie Madi embellished minidress with a cape, Stuart Weitzman heels and Arzano chandelier earrings, opened up the show alongside performers including Randy Travis and Reba McEntire.
Her ‘60s look consisted of a floral embroidered Elie Madi dress, vintage Janey Lopaty and a brooch, a Savannah Stranger ring and Rene Caovilla heels.
Her silver and gold ombre fringed Labourjoisie caftan was cinched with a fitted gold belt.
Air it out, girl! She performed “Dirty Laundry” in a white Marina Toybina sheath with an asymmetrical hem, HEX ties, Mother of London gloves and a belt, and Nasty Gal shoes.
The Dark Side
Underwood channeled the ‘80s in a black and purple fringed Elie Madi number, a vintage Janey Lopaty bracelet and earrings, an Atelier Swarovski ring and Jimmy Choo shoes.
Red-dy or Not
Sizzlin’! Her beaded red Mac Duggal gown with sheer detailing, Joan Hornig Stone Drop Earrings, Graziela Gems Tourmaline Party Ring and Rene Caovilla shoes were a nod to the ‘90s (and to a look donned by Reba McEntire in that decade).
The Wild Side
Growl! Underwood paid homage to Shania Twain and the early 2000s in a Rani Zakhem strapless leopard print gown with a thigh-high slit and matching choker, Mattia Cielo gems and Giuseppe Zanotti wraparound sandals.
Here and Now
“Last #CMAawards50 decade-inspired look…representing today! The great thing about Country Music fashion is that #fringe works in any era! ❤️,” the musician Instagrammed of her Elie Madi dress and cape, Coomi earrings and rings and Rene Caovilla on November 2.
Underwood paid tribute to Dolly Parton in a silver fringe Jovani column, Arzano earrings, Arzano, Nigaam and Butanirings teamed with Rene Caovilla shoes.
