What's Carrie's Best Look: Sweet or Rock 'n' Roll?

04/17/2007 at 01:00 PM ET

We’ve seen it before with Carrie Underwood — she’s the picture of innocence on the red carpet only to reveal a sexier side onstage. And last night’s CMT awards (where the singer won three awards) was no exception. Carrie told PEOPLE that “I just wanted something different, just something sweet” of her ’50s-style Badgley Mischka dress and nude Christian Louboutin heels that she arrived in. But her onstage look was anything but sweet, with silver hot-pants showing off her toned legs, a keyhole top, armful of bangles and legwarmers over stilettos. We want to know which look you prefer! Tell us: What’s Carrie’s best look? Sweetly retro or rock n’ roll sexy?

She is a total southern bell, and should stick to that.

Y’all are right about the leg warmers…they should not be brought back…but Carrie Underwood is awsome and she has an amazing talent!!! can’t help but love her!!!

what she needs to ask herself is, if she sees the picture of herself in legwarmers in 5 or 10 years, will she be very embarassed? i know i am of mine!

I’m not a fan of the legwarmers, but she can pull them off! The dress is cute

i think carrie underwood has a wonderful voice , and she can wear anything and make it look good , i hae liked her since the begging of american idol !! but i like her in the dress better , she looks really good

I think she looks cute in anything, but I think I like the rock n’ roll more. I love the legwarmers with the high heals. The dress is a little to light, like its her own skin tone, but what-ever

She looks amazing in both pictures! She has a great body and she is beautiful! Check out those legs! My Goodness!

Wow. i love carrie either way. sexy or sweet, she looks fantastic.

And the whole point of performing onstage isn’t to look natural. u need to stand out to be remembered. i think the legwarmers and the bangles draw such attention, and that’s her result. besides, if she didn’t have the bangles and the legwarmers, it’s just be sexy leggy carrie, not rock n’ roll carrie.

umm she can pull off both looks but earlier in her career I guess it was neccessary to show that she was the image of good girl but then later when she became more comfortable with her fame she chose more of an edgy look… the same goes for her songs(jesus take the wheel to next time that he cheats) it’s just an evolutionary change from goody goody to bad girl.
