Carrie Underwood in cream Maria Lucia Hohan at the ACAs: too frilly & young?

These are photos from last night’s American Country Awards in Las Vegas. You might be like me and ask yourself, “Why does Carrie Underwood look so insanely and uncharacteristically happy?” Seriously, Carrie’s sour puss usually rivals Jessica Alba’s “natural bitchface” – so why does Carrie’s smile look so unforced here? Is it because, at long last, after several years of being “Oh, her” at awards shows, Carrie was the undisputed STAR last night? Taylor Swift wasn’t there. Jennifer Nettles wasn’t there. Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban weren’t there. It was Carrie’s moment to shine!

So, how did Carrie do? Horribly. The dress is Maria Lucia Hohan, and it looks like one of cream-puff dressed that Katy Perry would fail to pull off, or a dress that would make me yawn if Taylor Swift wore it. The skirt is too short, so it gives Carrie the look of a young girl who has outgrown her “party dress.” Plus, the Ryan Haber shoes just look awful and uncomfortable. I’m really disgusted with this whole ensemble.

Also sharing the spotlight with Carrie? Miranda Lambert! Miranda is big-busted, and I respect that as a fellow big-boob-haver, but I would love it if Miranda would find flattering dresses that showed off her figure in a classy way.

Speaking of boob issues, Kristin Chenowith. I love her, but this dress is WRONG. Whatever is happening to her boobs is just wrong.

    Ugh who is the stylist in Nashville these days? I know we all want to hate on Rachel Zoe, but even she could do better than this. I’m sniffing a new Bravo situation already.

  2. debbie says:

    those ankle weights she’s wearing really work. her legs look great.

  3. Veruca says:

    Kristen’s boobs look fine to me, but that dress… another story.

  4. Sara says:

    The shoes are so not right for that dress. Miranda Lambert always looks ungrateful and mad.

    • Aviatrix says:

      She is a 3am Waffle House waitress “The Swan” transformation. Ungrateful and mad (and drunk) – “Smothered n covered? Hunny we ain’t got no coffee, be about five minutes cuz its still brewin’.”

  5. Aviatrix says:

    CountryBitch is Eden Wood all growed up! Seriously that has pageant written all over it. Those shoes were a bad choice. If she paired them with some little white ruffle socks and a crown Michael K would no doubt approve.

  6. brin says:

    The shoes are bad.

  7. Oi says:

    Yikes her legs look baaad…and who spit in Miranda’s bean curd?

    Edit: come on fug girls….you know you have this lined up for the days fuggery

      Re: Miranda…I think that’s just her face. She looks like someone grabbed her brow ridge in one hand, her chin in the other, and squished both ends of her face together.

      Also, you get +10 internets for the Mulan reference!

    Everyone looks like hell. Why is it a must for women to flaunt their boobs. Yes, you are female, we know you have boobs…get over it. Cheap!

  9. Bee says:

    Too “frilly and young”? Are you serious? Carrie is like 28. I hardly think she needs to wear something more “matronly”. I think the dress looks cute, but why those shoes? I would have put something a bit more classic on her feet and maybe some long pearls and some other fun necklaces around her neck….

    • Sequined Pajamas says:

      Thank You. It seems that nobody can win when it comes to fashion on the red carpet. They wear a granny dress it’s too matronly. They wear a short dress, and they are over 23, it’s too young.Show some cleavage, everything else is covered, it’s too slutty. If an actress is normal size she needs to lose weight, but if she is skin and bones she has an eating disorder.

    Those shoes on CW look like she’s under house arrest and like she’s being monitored for alcohol intake simultaneously. Not a good look, especially with a dress that looks a but too young for her.

  11. ladybert62 says:

    Carrie’s dress is OK – looks good on her. Those shoes however belong in the trash.

    The slutty dresses on the other ladies – well, you get my drift I am sure! ha ha

  12. Ally says:

    Off topic, sorry…but I love the new mobile site!!! I haven’t been on in awhile, so sorry if I’m late, but it looks AWESOME on my iPhone!!!! WOOT!

  13. HadleyB says:

    Everyones stylist should be fired – they all look terrible. From head to foot.

    Dress, shoes, makeup, Everything!

    Do these celebs not look in the mirror before they leave??

  14. cheryl says:

    I guess not everyone has noticed this, but Country Music and classy as seldom mentioned in the same sentence. Ms. Lambert being one of the more frequent fashion offenders. Perhaps they do not care. Not everyone is aware that money does not buy good taste and good sense. Everyone is allowed an occasional pass, but some of these people have used their lifetime allotment. Where was Faith Hill? At least she usually turns out well….

  15. Katie says:

    Well, you can take the girl out of the honky tonk, but you can’t take the honky tonk out of the girl! Clearly money and fame has doe little to improve the way these girls dress. They still look as “country” as ever! Carrie’s shoes are awful. They don’t go with the dress at all. And the dress looks like something Taylor Swift would have worn to her middle school dance.

  16. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    Barbie doll beautiful but overrated.

  17. Reece says:

    Channeling Taylor Swift.

  18. Bob says:

    Is Carrie under house arrest? Are those ankel monitors?

  19. operagirl says:

    Anyone else notice the resemblance between Kristen Chenoweth and Miranda Lambert? I would never have thought of it before, but having the pics one over the other . . . same kind of face, though Chenoweth has seen, um, a bit of Botox, methinks?

  20. Kara Ann says:

    Love Carrie’s jewelry and I like her hair. The dress and shoes are all wrong!

    Kristen…yeah, poor dress choice but I still love her.

  21. Isa says:

    I hate Carrie’s shoes. But isn’t she always a big winner at these things?

  22. Dani says:

    Miranda is pregnant! Totally calling it.

  23. Louise says:

    The girls look like a group of “trannys”. Miranda is disgusting and who knows about Carrie – a young woman trying to relive her childhood.

  24. danceprancer says:

    I like Carrie’s dress,but those shoes are not right for this look…they distract from the dress… I’d like to see daintier-looking shoes in the same color as the dress… it will be a softer look.
