When it came to costumes for her “Play On” tour, Carrie Underwood was more than ready to shake up her good girl image with some seriously sexy looks. The country star called upon So You Think You Can Danceand American Idol resident costume designer Soyon An to help her create a smoldering stage look–including the opening act’s super-tight, black spandex catsuit.  “She starts off with a white jacket on the top, and then she takes that off to reveal the Swarovski crystal criss-cross halter,” Soyon tells PEOPLE. While this sparkling catsuit may seem more J.Lo than Carrie, Soyon says that simply isn’t so.  “She’s very fashion forward and very open to different types of clothing,” says the designer. “She wasn’t intimidated at all–she was ready for it. It’s a tough look but it’s her attitude–and obviously she’s got the body for it.” And to add an extra glam touch, Soyon designed a guitar strap encrusted with Swarovski crystals. “I designed [it] to match all three outfits in the [opening] segment. It was a very black-and-white formal and girly feeling.” Carrie wears a total of 14 separate costumes and 29 different looks throughout her “Play On” tour designed by Soyon, who got a major vote of confidence from the star. “[Carrie] is really fun to dress. She was very trusting,” says Soyon. “She was like, ‘You are in charge of my clothes and I want to focus on my music.'” For more on Carrie’s tour costumes, pick up the new PEOPLE Country issue on newsstands now.–reporting by Eileen Finan

Carrie looks absolutely gorgeous in all of her tour outfits!! This girl can pull off any look. She is such a sweet girl with morals and self respect and that is what I love about her. People that say negative things about her are only jealous!

Oh please people!!! She is miles and miles away from being like a Britney Spears, as far as her concert wardrobe goes! I have seen this tour live three times already and I can tell you that everything is in good taste and she doesn’t show too much of anything! No cleavage and when she’s wearing short dresses, you can tell and she has even told the audience that she’s wearing spandex underneath. She has the best voice in country music and she is FANTASTIC live. She can sing and perform circles around Taylor any day.

I love how you all hating on Carrie ate making up all these things to why she’s famous and being “embarrassed” for her, and comparing her to tswift!? wow.. first of all there is NO conparrison between Carrie & Taylor. Carrie’s gorgeous and has a voice that makes taylor look like a complete joke to all music. Any normal person clearly sees every reason to why she’s famous.. her talent is unbelievable! and to say she isn’t a “good Christian” shouldn’t even come up. you all obviously have noo room what so ever to judge anyones faith. & to say your “so embarrassed” for her is rediculous. she looks amazing in everything she wears! she’s the absolute Perfect role model for all girls and you all are jealous bc taylor will never have talent close to the level of Carrie’s talent. it’s you very few people against the rest of the world (:

VERY cute, but I must say I see a pattern of celeb singers taking on closer and closer looks of Lady Gaga, not as outrageous but more OUT there.

omg some of you people are insane. How the heck is Carrie “selling sex” by wearing spandex and dresses? She’s not changing her image at all. you are all just jealous of all the success Carrie has accomplished and will continue to. If you like it or not, Carrie will be around for a LONG time because of her amazing vocals and humble personality.

You are joking me, right? Taylor Swift, a barely 20- year old candy- coated pop/ country star is “kicking her butt”? I understand that it may appear to be the case as Taylor Swift is fairly new, and Carrie has been owning this field for years now, but Taylor swift is ANYTHING but kicking Carrie Underwood’s butt. She sang your national anthem at the Super Bowl, she has sold more albums than any past idol winner in America, she has won countless Grammy’s and Entertainer Of The Year Awards, has had WAY more number one singles than Taylor Swift will ever have, and she has a voice that makes her snoring sound better than Taylor’s best song. Now don’t get my wrong, I love Taylor Swift. I love her for her personality and ability to be genuine and down to earth amidst all this fame. However, Taylor Swift will NEVER be in the same league as Carrie Underwood.
As well, do you really believe that she is relying on sex appeal to sell albums and concert tickets? The fact that she is naturally pretty and has an amazing sense of style has nothing to do with the fact that the entire world loves her. I would love to see how you dress if you honestly believe she is “selling sex”… whatever that means.

Go open Youtube, my friend, and search her live shows. I urge you to go look up her most recent shows during her Play On tour, as well as her first live appearances, and you’ll see that not only has she stayed the same amazing, genuine person with fabulous values since the beginning, her voice gives you goosebumps within seconds of the opening note. And I can say that from experience, having seen her live.

Carrie is the best singer of this decade, and Taylor Swift should be lucky to even be in the same auditorium as her at awards shows.

Dudvillas- Taylor Swift is the worst singer in the history of music. She cannot sing on key to save her life.

So no, Taylor is NOT kicking Carrie’s butt. Carrie sings circles around Taylor and everyone knows it. The Tween frenzy with tonedeaf Taylor will eventually end, and the only person left standing will be Carrie, because Talent (Carrie)outlasts teen fads…which is what Taylor is.
