Carrie Underwood Knew She Could Trust This Designer to Turn Her Into a Princess For the CMA Awards
Carrie Underwood likely knew the pressure was on to find the most glamorous dresses for the 2016 CMA Awards. After all, it was her ninth year co-hosting with Brad Paisley. Carrie chose not one, not two, but 10 looks for the show — all reminiscent of decades of the past. Paying tribute to singers like Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire, Carrie's outfits included beading, sequin embellishments, and colourful sparkles.
One of our favourite looks happened to be a gold and silver ombre caftan dress by Antoine Salameh Labourjoisie (FYI: he also created Kendall Jenner's 21st birthday dress). The designer said, "This dress shines perfect on stage. I love the sheer ombre details mixed with the movement of the fringe on the sleeves."
For the red carpet, however, Carrie chose a poufier, dusty-pink gown by Michael Cinco. Instead of short, body-hugging dresses like the ones she wore on stage, Carrie wore a princess-style beaded ball gown. Michael revealed to us that he has worked with Carrie in the past and that "this [look] is completely different than anything I have ever seen her in." We have to agree. Carrie's never-ending outfits deserve to be seen from all angles, so keep reading for her full looks.
