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?

A horrible recession. A devastating storm. Troops sacrificing overseas. Who cares about her twelve dresses? I would be more impressed to read that she wore an $80 dress from some no name designer the entire night. Everyone needs to stop buying Into Hollywood and watching these ridiculous awards shows. There are so many more important things going on in our country.

I like the red dress the best but Carrie Underwood is always beautiful (:

Wouldn’t it be nice if she would auction those dresses off to help with supplies and such for the traumatic East Coast disaster.
Those dresses would mean a lot more then!

I think it would be even nicer if she would have the dresses auctioned off and give the proceeds to the East coast disaster area to use for supplies, clean-up and food.

Twelve dress changes was too, too, too much! Not necessary, especially in the wake of such a national disaster. Come on Carrie/CMA’s – this many costume changes were out of line.

I love Carrie

Kelly- Carrie Underwood sings circles around Tonedeaf Taylor and she is hardly “dumb.” She is a college graduate with high honors, graduating Magna Cum Laude. Last time I checked, Taylor Swift didn’t even go to college. :)

The red dress…simply gorgeous! The black dress and short white one…eh! The blue satin-looking frock…Noooooooooooooo !

Even if it is the show that decides what she wears, it’s a live show…they can adjust and put her in something simple, not over the top…12 times. And, she could have enough compassion to say no to 12 dresses, but, she didn’t.
