Fashion in the Award Scene: ACM Awards 2012

April 3, 2012

Can we all just agree that Carrie Underwood is too hot for her own good!? This girl has it all.  From her red carpet look down to her performance ensemble, she knocked it out of the park.  After seeing her on the red carpet I thought it couldn’t get any better than that, then she opens the show Sunday night in this sexy little number and a glowing microphone stand that she’s toting around stage and I’m left speechless.  Mouth gaping, no words, speechless. I am so impressed by her vocals, yet I can’t wrap my head around it all because her fashion is incredible as well.  On the carpet she looked so glamorous and elegant, then she transforms into this country rocker chic, I just couldn’t believe it.  That’s the incredible thing about fashion, one change of an outfit can cross an entire personality genre. However, I have to say, Carrie’s fashion may have been the best of the night, but the girl under the clothes is who steals the show.  An all around great vocalist, wearing fabulous fashion pieces and a beautiful smile.  It’s not the clothes that makes fashion, it’s the individual, right?… Well Carrie Underwood, if this is what Country looks like, I want to be country!

In addition to the ACM Award’s the KCA’s were the night before. In viewing both shows and the red carpets, I noted a similar accessory both nights on two people, completely opposite each other.

Jennifer Nettles of Country duo, Sugarland, and Amandla Stenberg of The Hunger Games, both stepped out in gorgeous dresses with a yellow belt.  Jennifer being an adult singer and Amandla being a young actress, really made me smile.  This yellow belt as an accessory on these people symbolizes fashions purpose.  Crossing genres, crossing age demographics and closing into the notion that fashion is fashion.  Young, old, girl, boy, red carpet, streets, actress, singer… whatever the characteristic, fashion is universal.  In both cases, I love the color pop and I love the concept this image captures.  Props to both ladies for going bold, I love this look.
