In honor of the 50th Country Music Awards, Carrie Underwood is doing something she's never done before. Of course since this is her ninth year to host the CMAs she has had dozens of outfit changes over the years, but this year is different. To honor each decade that the CMAs has been aired, she is wearing a different dress to signify the country music industry's style over the years.
Her #CarrieByTheDecades looks have been on point. With plenty of fringe and beading, Underwood's looks during the awards show have varied from a 1970s gold fringe dress, to a 1980s black dress with padded shoulders, and even to a leopard 2000s dress inspired by Shania Twain. Along with hosting the CMAs, Underwood also performed her latest single "Dirty Laundry," and wore even another different outfit for her performance.
Even though Beyonce did perform tonight at the CMAs and Taylor Swift presented the 2016 Entertainer of the Year CMA Award, Underwood definitely stood out and dazzled in all of her decades looks, especially when she was presented the Female Vocalist of the Year Award.
With more than 10 looks this year, Underwood rocked the fashion scene as a host. Before the award show, Underwood teased fans on Instagram about what her dresses would look like, and the up-close view of the gowns show gorgeous detailing that you can see for yourself below:
This look was definitely a more elegant take on the 60s.
Even though it's inspired by the 70s, this fringe look still works even for today!
The gown on the far left is Underwood's 1980s inspired gown complete with shoulder pads, a bold purple graphic, and fringe.
This 1990s-inspired gown is a nod to the gown Reba McEntire wore during her 1993 CMAs performance.
This leopard dress was inspired by Shania Twain's infamous leopard look from her "That Don't Impress Me Much" music video.
