Y’know, we should, by all rights, think this is tacky:
Carrie Underwood performed at NBC Studios in New York City for the ‘Today Show’ in a top by Alice + Olivia and shorts by 7 For All Mankind paired with B Brian Atwood booties.
Alice + Olivia Elenora Sequined Long Sleeve Top
7 For All Mankind Brocade Foil Block Print Shorts
B Brian Atwood ‘Fruitera’ Bootie
Because – and we urge you to say the following words out loud to get the full effect – sequined top and silver foil hot pants.
But the only word that ever popped into our heads upon hearing Carrie Underwood’s name is “bland.” After years of looking at red carpet pictures of her, that’s the only thing we can say about her. She never truly looked bad, in our memory, but she never stood out and always looked to us like the prettiest girl in your average high school.
Is this tacky? Only a little, but gloriously so. Get in touch with your inner honky-tonk, girl. It’ll do you a world of good on the style front, where tacky trumps boring any day of the week.
