Carrie's 8 dresses

This will be the first a a few posts from the CMAs. If I did it all in one, it would be way too long. I have way too much to say about the fashions at awards shows!

I'm starting with Carrie Underwood since she hosted, and has so many looks for me to analyze! I've put pics of all her looks for the evening and what I think of them. Feel free to comment if you agree, or disagree!

Red carpet dress: thumbs up. I love the color of this Roberto Cavalli against the red carpet!

This is not my favorite. While Carrie can get away with some fabrics that most people can't, you could tell she was uncomfortable in this satin get-up. When she moved, you could see every little curve (including the slip she had under it). Unless you are the size of Keira Knightley, I wouldn't recommend a long satin dress.

I like the goddess look. It's romantic and feminine. Not wild about the cotton candy pink, but I guess if you get to wear 8 dresses in one night, you should have a range of colors.

Love this dress! This is one of my favs for the night. Classic and beautiful! Don't think I've ever seen a Nicole Miller dress I didn't love. Love the one shoulder, love the defined waistline, and love Carrie showing off her pretty legs. I want to know her workout routine (not that I'd do it).

Not much to say about this one but, GORGEOUS! Hard to go wrong with a Badgley Mischka gown.

I love this dress! I thought it was unique and whimsical. And her hair was cute with the little red chopsticks holding it up.

Ok, I really did not like this dress. The top was pretty, but the bottom reminded me of gag me with a spoon!

LOVE this dress! I had a hard time finding a pic of this one online. But when I saw it on TV, I fell in love.

Press conference dress: I like this one. Nice mini party dress with flare sleeves. I'm sure she changed again before going to the parties though. Maybe next year, I'll go to the parties and take my own pictures to share!
By the way, if anyone cares, Stuart Weitzman shoes graced Miss Underwood's feet for the evening, and she wore Jonathon Arndt Jewels.
