Carrie Underwood in Gauri & Nainika at Country Countdown Awards: bizarre?

2016 American Country Countdown Awards
There were a couple of music awards shows this weekend, both the American Country Countdown Awards, which aired on Fox, and The Radio Disney Music Awards, which were on Disney. The American Country Countdown Awards are based on record sales, so the big winners were popular artists like Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood and Chris Stapleton. The breakthrough awards went to Sam Hunt and Kelsea Ballerini. You can see a full list of winners on Matthew McConaughey and Terry Crews were among the presenters.

2016 American Country Countdown Awards

Carrie Underwood wore this white and watercolor print Gauri & Nainika “bridal illusion gown” on the red carpet. Of course she had a bunch of other costume changes during the ceremony, some more fug than others. I don’t know whether to admire or make fun of this gown (above). There’s a gazelle on the bodice, some kind of abstract pattern on the tulle, and the tiered skirt is huge. It’s both weird and pretty at the same time. I do like her styling, I’ve noticed the wavy lob is popular lately. If you find this dress bizarre, wait until you see her performance outfit:

The gladiator shoes just make that outfit, right? I believe this Star Trek school girl dress is Rocky Gathercole. That’s what she wore to perform “Church Bells,” and you can see that video on JustJared.

And she wore this dress too, it’s like art deco meets disco. At least they could have made the colors complementary. (Update: this dress, and the orange and green one she’s wearing below, are both by Elie Madi.)

Here are some other attendees including Jennifer Nettles in a silver striped Genny suit, Jana Kramer in a blush Hayley Paige bedazzled romper, and Kelsea Ballerini in a pink and floral applique Georges Hobeika gown. They’re all rather fug, with the exception of Nettles’ suit. Oh and Carrie wore yet another weird dress in the press room because of course she did.

    I actually love that last one!! (Long sleeved yellow orange and teal)

    First one, I feel like it was designed on a dress form and never put on a human body until it went on Carrie, so the pieces are all ill fitting and oddly placed. And the skirt is some sort of shower curtain hoop skirt contraption. I do not understand.

    Gold dress, the whole outfit is just odd. I kind of love the gold thigh high gladiators if they were with a simple tight black sexy dress. I could never pull it off but her legs could!

    God, that’s a lot of fug. It doesn’t help that they’re all blonde, orange and countoured to high heaven.

    Carrie’s dress would have been really pretty if the top part wasn’t sheer. And her hair and tan don’t help. Can you imagine that dress on someone like Rooney Mara? It would look ten times better.

    That last dress of Carrie’s looks more like something Kacy Musgraves would wear.

  4. Rainbow says:

    All the dresses are terrible.

  5. Bichon says:

    None of it’s good. None.

  6. Astrid says:

    Big NOPE

  7. RJ says:

    Did she lose a bet?

  8. HeidiM says:

    Jennifer Nettles looks good. AND THAT IS ALL!

  9. vauvert says:

    Everything hurts my eyes. But maybe it’s me.

  10. Lama Bean says:

    Why does Carrie’s face look so harsh? It’s so…different.

  11. Abbess Tansy says:

    No it’s not just you, my eyes hurt too with all this fug, no style.

  12. Cs says:

    Wow I just cycled through a whole bunch of reactions –

    1. At least she’s doing something different?
    2 those boob flaps just ruined the dress (for dress 1)
    3. … Did she start on the Met Gala theme early (dress 2)
    4. I can’t believe she’s not wearing a sparkly prom dress and calling it a day.
    5. … Did she get a new stylist or something??
    4. Wait, is this a new mum thing? Is her kid still young enough to qualify her as a new mum? (Genuine question. I can’t actually remember when she gave birth)
    6. …at least she’s doing something different??

    I think bizarre really is the only way to describe it.

  13. Gg says:

    Something’s been off with her for a while now. She seems plasticky, her songs have no heart, and her taste has been wack a doodle. Wonder why?

  14. knower says:

    So much blonde and orange.

  15. Giddy says:

    I think Carrie wants to be a Fashion Girl so badly. For the Star Trek going to church dress she even had a custom mike! I recently saw a picture of when she was on American Idol, and the transformation is amazing.
