Carrie Underwood in London

Posted on June 20, 2012

Minions, here is your assignment: Explain what it is we’re looking at here:

 

Carrie Underwood at album launch in London.

Because it’s so odd that it’s shorting out our brains. We’re having a total “man who mistook his wife for a hat” perceptual issue right now. It’s like our brains said “Fuck this. You’re on your own,” and checked out.

Besides, Miss Carrie just risked a metric shit-tonne of hassle by coming out in support of gay marriage and we don’t want to make fun of what our eyes are telling us is a celery jacket, a tablecloth top, and (yes, we are about to type this) sequined tap pants with black lace trim.

So you guys do it.

            My mother’s version of that is ‘Jesus, Mary and Holy Saint Joseph’ and ‘What’s a lesbian?’.

        Alas, MY mother would say “Either her mirror is broken or her mother is dead.” It isn’t a nice thing my mother says, but it makes me giggle.

        • http://twitter.com/AShinyOConnor A Shiny O’Connor

          Perish the thought that she has several mirrors and her mother is alive and well. 

          • almondemy

            Indeed! And yet, there is no other reasonable, logical excuse for this outfit’s existence. 

      • Fordzo

        Mine says, “Jesus Christ on a cracker!”

        Who am I kidding?  I say that.

        • TieDye64

          Yeah, “Christ on crackers!” is a fave of mine in these situations. When those are the only words that the mind can produce.

        • Carly Warnock

          I say ‘Christ on a cracker’ when my mother is around. I say ‘Christ on a stick’ when she isn’t. Sometimes a cracker just won’t cut it.

      I would say “Bless her heart.” in a very southern accent.   My mother wouldn’t say anything at all.  She’s much too nice.  I will give her that green is a good color on her. Perhaps not those particular pieces.

      • PaulaBerman

         In the spirit of your mom, I will only say something nice: Carrie Underwood has fantastic legs. That’s the only good thing I can think to say.

    • TheOriginalLulu

      As someone wrote here the other day, “Jesus take the wheel”.

      • http://twitter.com/AShinyOConnor A Shiny O’Connor

        I love that and I’m stealing it.

    • Sobaika

      Great hair, too.

    • Sartorial_She

       Seriously. I can’t even imagine the work that went into getting her legs to look that good. I’m training for a half-marathon and doing lots of cross-training (squats!) and my legs don’t even come close to looking like that. Kudos to her. I covet.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/J2VE4NE2FY2BP4QD2XOYKJGLPI Laura

    It would be interesting to see those pants in another simpler context, and sister’s got some serious legs, there, but yikes. That’s a mess…. That jacket is hideous and the yellow thing? WTF?

    • tereliz

      Totally on board that she could have made the shorts work, even with the booties, which I think are kind of cute. Top with a plain black blouse buttoned all the way up (or maybe mandarin collar?) with a tribal/graphic statement necklace and we’d have an outfit that would be chic, yet still cool enough for a London album launch. 

      Am I the only one who can’t stand those colors together? It’s a little too Yellowbrick road to the Emerald City adjacent.

    The first thing that is making my eyes hurt, is actually the hem of those shorts.  Having sold that sequined fabric where I work, I can tell you that that is the selvedge edge you’re lookin’ at there. That incredibly badly fitted jacket, shows every last detail of wrongness, due to its visible from orbit shininess.  And that acid yellow top, it IS a top, I think cause you can see just a peek of it in the jacket opening, would be great with jeans, but not with this OTT mess.  On a positive closing note.  That family of colors is great on her.

  • AmandaCathleen

    Oooooh….wow. This outfit is only appropriate if you’re a waitress at a theme restaurant on St Patty’s day. Yikes.

    That being said, I bet the yellow blouse could be great with a pair of skinny jeans.

  • PeggyOC

    Yay for supporting gay marriage.  Boo to everything else.  This is just a crazy-ass pile of fug.

    (If that turns out to be a thing I will be horrified, but secretly proud of my zeitgeisty predictions)
    (
    Also well done to Miss Underwood for being less vapid than I would have thought and supporting gay marriage.)

    • http://twitter.com/alienspouse Jen Alien-Spouse

      OR Carrie Underwood is secretly a huge fan of Norwich City Football Club, who’s nickname is The Canaries because they play in yellow and green.

  • lovelyivy

    This is the least flattering thing I have ever seen her wear, hands down. If this is what happens when she steps out of her pretty princess in beige box then long may her tremendously boring nude pumps reign.

    Coming out in favor of gay marriage WAS a big deal for her, so kudos for that.  But this is a nightmare, honey.

    It’s really costumey and the yellow is just unnecessary but her legs are RIDICULOUS!

  • Melissa Brogan

    Ms Underwood’s legs and head look fab.

    That’s as nice as I can be right now.

    • Loola234

      Legs are awesome – but couldn’t she have worn a color on her lip that wasn’t labeld “Flesh Tone-Brown-eyed Blonde”?

  • Pennymac

    Words fail me.

  • butter nut

    this poor child clearly doesn’t know that her stylist is a right-wing, homophobic christian fundamentalist, who is expressing his hatred through her wardrobe.  pray the anti-gay away, girl!

  • Qitkat

    Now I think if we were seeing these fabrics in another context, say as pillows on a neutral linen sofa, this look could totally take a room into country glam design territory. 

    • Qitkat

      Taking this a bit further, Design Stars, here is your next assignment. Head on over to tom and lorenzo’s website, and choose your famous muse. Your assignment is to design a room taking inspiration from an outfit. Because lord knows, that vapid show could use some new fodder for challenges.

    You’d think that coming out in favor of gay marriage would mean that she could find a gay who would tell her, “Oh, honey, no,” before she walked out in public wearing THAT.

    I actually don’t HATE the jacket – with a pair of cute jeans, it could work. But the shirt and sequined shorts (or is it a skirt?) are hurting my eyes.

  • charlotte

    She should be a guest star on the new season of Arrested Development. Because she’s made a huge mistake.

      YES. Love this.

    So here’s my interpretation. Carrie was rehearsing and getting fitted for next year’s St. Patrick’s Day Country Music Festival (held in Terlingua as everyone knows). She had just changed out of the “pot o’ gold” paillette top and put on a nice summery tunic when she was told that Michele Obama was outside and only had a moment to say “hi”. A big gust of wind came up and Carrie grabbed the first jacket to hand, forgetting she hadn’t yet changed out of the sequined tap shorts. That’s my figgerin’.

    • ChaquitaPhilly

    What we have here is a young lady who is taking heavy fire from the Christian Right for her support of gay marriage.  I simply cannot bring myself to criticize what she’s wearing, considering what she’s had to put up with for the last several days.

  • artgirl9

    Bless her heart

  • NurseEllen

    Maybe she wants to add to her resume and is auditioning for the Rockettes, and they decided to hold the auditions in London because Mayor Bloomberg says he’s about to compel all NYC dancers to eat more because they’re too thin, and this getup is supposed to catch the director’s eye?      Other than that, I have no explanation.

    call me crazy, i love the jacket.  i’m an insane green freak.  i have a pair of uggs that color. those would just about complete this look. total green madness.

    • holdmewhileimnaked

      i think, but am not sure, that the jacket is christopher kane. that said, i woulda loved the shorts when i was about, oh, seven years old in the early 70s–sans the lace but very on trend [as the wretched say] for both glitter rockers & seven year olds at the time.

  • DaveUWSNYC

    My guess is that this outfit’ll be seen this Pride weekend in NYC. On either/both sexes.

  • marilyn

    Thislooks like a very messed-up cheerleader ou-fit.

    say what you will, those colors are great.

  • jennifervney

    This girl can never turn down what the hollywood glamour machine throws at her, no matter how unflattering.

    It is one of my ballet outfits from 1985 worn upside down.  The sequins was the bodice and the satin was part of the skirt.  I literally had one EXACTLY that color.

  • 3boysful

    Dear friends, clearly Missl Carrie flew to London in her jammies, and her luggage was switched with that of a majorette whose school colors are green and yellow, so undaunted, she threw on her assistant’s jacket and booties and went forward with her head held high.

  • JMB_edits

    I’m going with “fashion mullet”:  Business on top and Party on the bottom!

  • lifetime_student

    Obviously she is filming a music video at her old high school and she is dressed as a majorette. At least I pray that is what she is doing or else I’d have to say, “Jesus H. Roosevelt Christ.”

    The look *MIGHT* have been salvageable if she’d lost the yellow shirt. Maybe. I’m trying to be supportive/optimistic here.

    It is clearly associated with an advertisement for Sprite. Right?

  • LuisaNL

    TLO, you need to step in, this poor girl needs an intervention. Great legs, though.

  • http://asskickingadviser.com/ Ass Kicking Adviser

    Her hair bothers me so much I can’t even get to the clothes. If you can call them clothes. To quote a favorite W&G episode, ‘It hurts to look at her; there’s no place for your eyes to rest.’

  • ri_dic

    Her support of gay marriage was the first interesting thing she has ever said. New respect. Always hate her clothes, though. Great legs.

    • makeityourself

      Haha! I like that.

      Green and gold were my high school colors too, so I have worn every incarnation of that color combo in one manner or another. But this getup had me stumped for a while. I couldn’t figure out why she had a gold polyester napkin wrapped around her waist and then I realized it was a shirt! Jesus take the wheel, stat!

      I always thought she was a cotton candy airhead, but when I read her comments about gay marriage, I got tears in my eyes. For a Country singer to speak openly about this subject took guts, because it will affect her record sales. Just google the Dixie Chicks for a refresher. I will now proudly support Miss Carrie Underwood and her overly bronzed, super toned legs, and buy some of her music. She does have a great voice.

    Were gay leprechauns involved in the selection of this outfit?

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    She is a hot mess. 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_F73LIJ3SJGI5AJQMXMWXCKILHI Pamela

    First, the good news.  Her gams are lookin’ toned & slammin’.   Sorry, that’s it.

  • formerlyAnon

    I like the top. If the shorts (skirt?) thing wasn’t so sparkly, the whole outfit would look pretty great.

  • joe_tey83

    She has crossed over to the Gaga Perry Minaj Dark side.

    As my husband, who is from Oklahoma said when he saw the photo, “You can take the girl out of Oklahoma, but you can’t take Oklahoma out of the girl.”

    • formerlyAnon

      This is the best summation so far. You (& your husband) win the comments section.

  • Lisa Kramp

    She is the pictorial definition of my husband’s nickname for her: Carrie Underwear! I think she’s channeling a leprechaun on acid.

  • unbornfawn

    This is something even Hedda Lettuce would not wear! Whatever it is.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/DJHCEFC7S5WYITH3D5ORYGS56I amye

    She looks like a female leprecaun!

    She looks like a Mummer (Philadelphia reference).

  • giiiirrrr

    Frosted Lucky Charms–they’re fashionably atrocious!

  • lrhoff

    There’s no explanation….it’s a mystery.  I think she just wanted to show off her toned and ripped legs and tore away whatever skirt she was actualy wearing prior to the cameramen arriving…..

  • Caaro3

    Well, first of all, her napkin from lunch is still tucked into her lap . . .

  • ThaliaMenninger

    A leprechaun sandwich with cheese on the side?

  • Cat_In_A_Hat

    Well… Ignoring everything else, which admittedly is hard, she has great legs!

  • CassieLee22

    why does she look so proud of herself……

  • quiltrx

    I’m just going to avoid the whole issue and say her hair looks great!

  • guest2visits

    She’s just messing with you TLo.

    Holy Leprechaun Majorette.

  • mila_8

    Looks like dress rehearsal for a one-woman production of Peter Pan.

  • MemHey

    Rogue and Phoenix were asked to design an outfit for Jubilee.

  • DCSheehan

    To explain this I would have to understand what I’m looking at and despite exhaustive research I cannot identify what the heck is on her lower half. I don’t want to alarm anyone, but it may be of alien origin.

    The jacket, however, is dahling.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_GTUWLNT6JIKVDYS2U4TQDTWFN4 Maria

    When my great-grandmother was ask to comment on a new baby that might not have grown into their looks yet, she would comment “It’s a baby,” so she didn’t have to lie. In that respect, Carrie honey, “It’s an outfit.”

  • Emilie Wagner

    sexy band uniform???

  • librarygrrl64

    She’s obviously the lead in a drag version of Peter Pan. Duh.

  • kim i

    love the jacket, though.

  • Sarah Michaels

    She’s so pretty from the neck up and so bizarre from the neck down.

  • Liverpoolgirl

    Can’t get past the quads…..oh and the sequins….in green no less

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/P27VIDYLRDOVQEMEUF22GEPJ6Y Laura

    Holy batshit crazy pants. I really have nothing else.

  • MightyMarshal

    What even? I can’t… I don’t even know what it is I can’t do. What was happening on the earth to cause this? It’s literally the dumbest looking thing I’ve ever seen on a celebrity. It’s like she was backstage at a clogging competition when the auditorium caught fire and she had to grab what ever random costume pieces she could find in order to run for her life.

    Explain what it is we’re looking at here:
