What's Carrie's Best Look: Sweet or Rock 'n' Roll?

04/17/2007 at 01:00 PM ET

We’ve seen it before with Carrie Underwood — she’s the picture of innocence on the red carpet only to reveal a sexier side onstage. And last night’s CMT awards (where the singer won three awards) was no exception. Carrie told PEOPLE that “I just wanted something different, just something sweet” of her ’50s-style Badgley Mischka dress and nude Christian Louboutin heels that she arrived in. But her onstage look was anything but sweet, with silver hot-pants showing off her toned legs, a keyhole top, armful of bangles and legwarmers over stilettos. We want to know which look you prefer! Tell us: What’s Carrie’s best look? Sweetly retro or rock n’ roll sexy?

The sweet is definitely better if only because the cut of the dress is fabulous. Honestly, “rocker” was a great idea for a stage outfit, but the bunching of the silver shorts makes them look too tight. Loving the leg warmers and heels though.

Carrie’s legs are amazing.

I’m not a big country music fan, but I really like her song “Before He Cheats.” She’s got an amazing voice.

As for attire… I like both looks. She can pull off both. I would change one thing though. In the Rock ‘n Roll photo, I don’t like those metallic hot pants. Maybe something in white or black. I actually really like the leg warmers with the heels, that makes the outfit that much sexier.

For some reason, everytime I look at Carrie, she reminds me of a Reese Witherspoon. They don’t look identical, but similar, plus they’re both southern, sweet and both are good role models.

About Carrie being thing, maybe she’s experiencing the stay-thin pressure of the show bzzzz. Hopefully she won’t become another Nicole or Lindsay. We have enough of those.

She looks lovely but FAR too thin!!! I remember when she looked normal and healthy on AI. What happened? I think that’s the real story not the leg warmers or the flowery dress. No wonder so many women feel so insecure. We are always seeing images of once healthy women who are now stick insects.

If I had those legs…I don’t think it’d really matter what was on them!!!

I think she looks great in both also, you know you have to make your outfit when you perform onstage interesting!! I think Carrie looks great all the time.. The only thing I can hope is that she doesnt keep losing weight!! Dont get me wrong-she looks really good, but the pic with the dress is where shes starting to look like a bobblehead! like that head doesnt fit on that body!!

Wow, she looks beautiful in both. She can wear anything, she shines in her performance, she looks awsome. I love her look, style,and shes a beautiful girl. She can pull off anything. Good work girl, your our American Idol.. #1

I definitely like the dress better, maybe if she didn’t wear the leg warmers I’d like the other look.

Hailey on

The dress looks better but she needs to gain a little weight. she is too sweet to pull off the slutty look but hang in there girl, they’ll have you in the gutter in no time
