Carrie Underwood has come a long way since her days as the jeans-wearing ingenue on American Idol. Since breaking onto the scene in 2005, the country star has honed her red carpet choices to ones that perfectly embody her Oklahoma roots and her glam sense of style. See some of her best red carpet moments and most stunning dresses through the years.
Carrie's animal instinct! She took a walk on the wild side at the 59th BMI Country Awards in this one-shoulder animal print frock that accentuated her sexy shoulders and lean legs. "I like to switch things up. I work out hard and try to make sure I am always at my best, so if I can show off a little of that hard work — in a tasteful way — I guess there's nothing wrong with that!" she reasons to Us.
