Carrie Underwood: Do You Like Her Naughty or Nice?

11/22/2006 at 02:18 PM ET

Carrie Underwood may have established herself as a singer, but her image seems to still be in flux. The former Idol hit the red carpet at the American Music Awards last night in a super-sweet, ivory floral-appliqué Max Azria Atelier dress. But during the show (where she won Best New Breakthrough Artist), she performed in a hotpants/bustier ballgown combo that was oddly reminiscent of Demi Moore’s infamous Oscar outfit from a few years back. We’re all for trying out new looks onstage — if you can’t experiment with costumes onstage, where can you? — but we think she looks more at ease and natural in her demure red-carpet look. When you have a voice like that, why try so hard? Tell us: What do you think of her two looks? Do you like Carrie better when she’s naughty or nice?

I think she looks gorgeous on the dress that she had on and I think she has such a gorgeous body and beautiful voice it doesn’t matter what she performed in it just mattered that she performed.

She is so beautiful either way. Few people could pull off both of those outfits the way that she does.

Tabi on

She looks great either way!You go girl:)

I think she looks better in the ivory dress, too. Not that she isn’t beautiful enough to wear something really hot, but that black outfit just doesn’t work.

Bridget on

Nice. The whole “naughty” thing does not fit her seweet ‘ol coutry gal image she wanted so badly. The naughty thing is totally a “Christina Agulira” wannabe stunt.

I think I speak for men everywhere.

She looks great in the ivory dress. My husband took one look at her in the black dress and made a “that doesn’t look so great” face. She’s got a great body, so something naughty isn’t what shouldn’t be done, that dress just doesn’t go with her.

That girl has some sexy legs!! That being said she looks beautiful in the ivory but the black is just weird!! Shorts/dresses are just a bad idea, PERIOD!!
