Carrie Underwood embodies holiday glamor in plunging glittery dress and hidden heels for ‘CMA Country Christmas’

Carrie Underwood was the image of holiday glamor for ABC’s upcoming “CMA Country Christmas” holiday special.

The “If I Didn’t Love You” singer hit the stage in a dazzling dark green dress that had voluminous sleeves, structured shoulders and a deep neckline. Underwood’s floor-length skirt covered her footwear, which probably consisted of glittering pumps with heels – in the same way as her previous holiday performances. The singer’s look was complete with layered rings and sparkling statement earrings.

For footwear, Underwood stays glamorous and bold with shoes that have rivets, metallic tones and crystals. The “Before He Cheats” singer’s appearance on stage and the red carpet usually includes ankle boots and pumps from Betsey Johnson, Alaia, Giuseppe Zanotti and several top brands. But when not at work, the star wears comfortable sneakers and ankle boots from Christian Louboutin, Nike and R13. Underwood’s fashion experience is also not exclusive to wearing bold shoes; the star has launched her own series of Calia by Carrie Underwood Athletics Clothing and has appeared in campaigns for Badgley Mischka, Almay and Olay over the years.
