CMT Awards Scrolldown Fug: Carrie Underwood

If there’s anything you know we like, it’s Diet Coke, Sweet Valley High, Jon Hamm/Pacey/a predictable cadre of future GFY HQ interns, and sequins. So it will come as no great shock that I was fully on board this train…

… and then, presumably as I hopped between carriages in search of the bar car, I was rudely thrown from it and left by the side of the tracks with amnesia and a concussion. Booties are all well and good, but the ankle cuffs suggest she was recently released from a mental hospital with no time to shave under her soft restraints.

I mean, see how much better its sequined cousin looks with strappier shoes? Then again, if she’d worn those from the start, I’d have had very little to talk about beyond typing the words “pretty pretty sparkly” over and over again and then yawning something about when Jessica Simpson needs back her hair extensions. So thanks, Carrie, for doing this blogger a solid.

    The shoes ruin it for me. She has fantastic legs, yet the thick straps cut them off….

    Cute dresses, I guess, but I wish she would change it up. She should do something completely different next time. She and Taylor Swift are stuck in a sparkly, sequin-y rut.

    • Ms.A

      I agree. She’s def stuck in a rut.
      I love sparkles but she’s always in princess/fairy territory.

    i feel as if there’s a country music award show every other month.

      You read my mind! And every time, Carrie still looks like a pageant queen. Those shoes are hideous. They look like jail-issued home monitoring systems (from the Lohan Collection, of course).

  4. Kelly

    Considering her company last night, she’s like the Nicole Kidman of Cannes of the CMT awards. I haven’t seen such a collection of horrible dressed people…ever. And lots of mullet dresses! Guess it fit the occassion, ya’ll!

    Can we please address how awful her overdone fake tan looks? I mean … why?

    • Carolina Girl

      That was the first thing that popped into my head. She has great legs but she really needs an intervention for her fake tan addiction. Ugh!

    I like the black booties (teehee) with the dress actually. I think they suit the shape and the colour of the dress.

  7. vandalfan

    Why would she change out of one dress into another that is for all practical purposes identical?

  8. TaraMisu

    Totally cute except for the boots/shoes. What is it with the hideous footwear lately??

  9. Shiitake

    Sparkly dresses…YAY!
    Shoes #1…blerg

    Shoes in the second pic are awesome, that’s my favorite, go to style of shoe for warm weather, the strappy sandal.

    Agree the fake tan got into Snooki territory.

    The extensions should be about 3 inches shorter. That’s a hella lot of hair.

    The girl has a rockin’ bod, you have to give her that.

    I think people in Nashville/country music become blind to overtanning (and over-blonding). Everyone does it, so it becomes the new Normal to them.

    Am I the only one going to read the new Sweet Valley novellas this summer? Even though the 10 years later one was pretty much a train wreck of suck, I still cannot resist.

  13. InfamousQBert

    i had a massive brain fail and read “back hair extensions” and was all O_o.
