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.
Nabbing a Best Country Solo Performance Grammy at the 55th annual awards show, Underwood — who performed in a one-of-a-kind LED ivory Theia dress — walked the red carpet in Roberto Cavalli's strapless gown. Accessorizing the "Blown Away" singer's look? More than $31 million in diamonds by designer Johnathon Arndt. Her necklace alone featured 381 carats of oval, pear, marquis, and round brilliant white diamonds. Joked Underwood: "It's worth more than me."
