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?

You do realize that Carrie doesn’t BUY these dresses…designers offer her dresses to wear and then they are returned…the designer benefits from her wearing their dresses, just like any other actress/singer/etc. Also, another important fact that you might consider — Carrie is giving $1 for each ticket sold on her current Blown Away Tour (95 scheduled dates at this point) to the American Red Cross when she’s in the States and to the Canadian Red Cross when she’s in Canada. Most of her and her husband’s charity work is not done with a press conference and media around. However, Carrie saw a way to help the Red Cross through her tour. Anyone going to her concert should not have a problem with $1 for their ticket going to help the Red Cross.

I can see wearing 2, 3, or even 4 dresses to such an event, but 12 is just excessive.

The red dress from Chagoury Couture! WOW! What a dress!!!

Yes, Carrie looks good in all sorts of gowns and she knows it too. Hence, no issues with her wearing 12 dresses. It’s funny people complain about Taylor singing the same thing, year after year, about her relationships. But you know what, at least I know Taylor is authentic, genuine and down-to-earth. Unlike Carrie, since American Idol, who’s totally changed and has gotten a huge ego and seems somewhat narcissistic. Now, she’s all Hollywood glam and turned pop way before Taylor but no uproar over that. The difference is that Taylor’s music is number 1 in iTunes and number 1 in Billboards so it is overplayed. So, people are hating on her. If Carrie’s music was as popular as Taylor’s and gotten as much music play on the radio, I’m sure the public would turn on her too.

I loved all Carrie’s dresses!! She looked especially beautiful on the red carpet. She and Brad did an amazing job as co-hosts. Loved the show!

I find the negative comments about the storm and the cost of the clothes feeding children and etc interesting.. If you are so offended by things like this what are you doing on a celebrity website posting comments about it? You should be spending your time online looking for ways to help if you feel that strongly..instead you are berating people for posting opinions on a article that you say you find trivial on a site that you yourself visit and participate in. Hypocrisy is everywhere..
