We don’t really like this dress so much but it rates an “Attagirl.”
Carrie Underwood attends the Samsung Hope For Children Gala 2014 in New York City in a Rubin Singer black and silver chevron silk twill cocktail dress from the Fall 2014 collection paired with a Rauwolf clutch, Henri Lepore Dezert black T-strap pumps, and Jacob & Co. jewelry.
It’s all a little too tricky for its own good. We don’t like the shape of the skirt or the fussiness of the bodice. But one thing this dress is not? Bland. That can only be considered a good thing coming from the gal we bitchily dubbed “Country Barbie,” because of her predilection for sparkly pastels – and nothing else. It’s got real impact and demands that you pay attention to her. It’s what we call a Declarative Dress. And she paired it with equally as bold earrings and shoes, which, oddly enough don’t fight with the dress.
She’s really grown on the style front ever since she did that “Sound of Music” turn. It’s always great to see stars using their style choices to make statements or sell a particular image of themselves effectively.
Having said all that, she’s wearing so much makeup that her face looks like it’s floating 3 inches away from her head.
