Miranda Lambert promised to awe us, Kellie Pickler got our attention with her head-turning look, but it was Carrie Underwood who stole the show at Thursday’s CMA Awards, wearing 12 different dresses during her time as cohost.

Arriving in a gorgeous Reem Acra gown, Underwood went on to wear 11 more dresses by designers like Alice + Olivia, Georges Chakra, Sally LaPointe, Tony Ward and more.

Some of our favorites included (from left) a dramatic black-and-gray one-shoulder Ines Di Santo dress with a sexy slit, a strapless embellished red Chagoury Couture number (it’s a good color on her!), a frothy, floral tea-length creation and her performance ensemble, a deep-gray high-low Tsemaye Binitie dress with sheer sleeves.

Considering she also changed her shoes, jewelry and sometimes even hair without a hitch, too, we have to say we’re quite impressed. And we’re left wondering how she pulled it all off! Tell us: Did you watch the CMAs? Did you have a favorite Underwood ensemble?

Justathought & Jasmine – how much have YOU donated to the relief effort? I suspect Carrie underwood is more likely to stand up and do something to help than either if you two

I think all the dresses are beautiful Carrie is beautiful, talented,smart,sexy, and that is why I voted for her 100 hundred times on American Idol because I knew she would go on to be awsome,and hugely successfull! And she’s would be the biggest Idol of them all to date! She deserves it because she is talented, and she has alway’s stayed true to herself, and is not afraid to tell people how she feels! And she wasn’t handed anything she earned it for being who she is, an dwhat she is! So best wishes Carrie, and congrats on everything, and alway’s remember that the thing’s other people say just shows their fans who they really are! And what they are about so that takes care of that! They make themselves look bad all by them selves! So ya you rock Love ya!

Why would anyone need to change their outfit 12 times for one event? It’s such a waste and completely unnecessary.

Why not 12 dresses!! It is fun, fantasy and a break from real life. For the sob sisters on Sandy, the world is not going to stop and Carrie wearing ONE drab dress isn’t going to help anyone.

I wonder how many hungry and/or abused children the cost of these dresses could feed?! Pathetic!!

Really sad while within our own country (not to mention the rest of the world) there are people wondering where they’ll sleep tonight and how their families will be provided for. Do these people HAVE to be so blatantly superfluous with their funds? I can see that it may be entertaining, but really.. if you have enough money to buy ONE of those dresses comfortably, you could do so much good. Giving some isn’t enough if you have THAT much to spare. It’s just plain sad..
