EXCLUSIVE: The Scoop on Carrie Underwood's Sexy Tour Looks

When it came to costumes for her “Play On” tour, Carrie Underwood was more than ready to shake up her good girl image with some seriously sexy looks. The country star called upon So You Think You Can Danceand American Idol resident costume designer Soyon An to help her create a smoldering stage look–including the opening act’s super-tight, black spandex catsuit.  “She starts off with a white jacket on the top, and then she takes that off to reveal the Swarovski crystal criss-cross halter,” Soyon tells PEOPLE. While this sparkling catsuit may seem more J.Lo than Carrie, Soyon says that simply isn’t so.  “She’s very fashion forward and very open to different types of clothing,” says the designer. “She wasn’t intimidated at all–she was ready for it. It’s a tough look but it’s her attitude–and obviously she’s got the body for it.” And to add an extra glam touch, Soyon designed a guitar strap encrusted with Swarovski crystals. “I designed [it] to match all three outfits in the [opening] segment. It was a very black-and-white formal and girly feeling.” Carrie wears a total of 14 separate costumes and 29 different looks throughout her “Play On” tour designed by Soyon, who got a major vote of confidence from the star. “[Carrie] is really fun to dress. She was very trusting,” says Soyon. “She was like, ‘You are in charge of my clothes and I want to focus on my music.'” For more on Carrie’s tour costumes, pick up the new PEOPLE Country issue on newsstands now.–reporting by Eileen Finan

Love Carrie’s costumes! This tour is amazing..top notch! Carrie’s voice is the best in country! I have never seen anyone sing live better than Carrie! I can see why she is the reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year and Female Vocalist. No one can really compare to her vocals!

Carrie is so beautiful..inside and out! The costumes for the tour look great. The Play On tour is great! She is an awesome artist with a wonderful and amazing voice!

If Carrie wants to dress sexy, fine. But she needs to stop singing about God and her faith because she’s going into sex symbol territory. You can’t have it both ways. Either your hot and sing songs about sex and worldly matters or you cover up and keep singing about God and faith. These are some of the things that make Christians come across as annoying and hypocritical. That’s why it’s best to keep your faith to yourself because that way when you decide to sell your sexuality nobody will seriously call you on it. It must be a Southern thing that women talk about God and Jesus up and down and then dress and act like hoochies (I once lived in the South). Case in point: Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson.

She is a young woman who wants to try new things. She’s still growing as an artist. I love her voice and her songs. More power to her. She is a great representative of country music.
