Carrie Underwood had all of us craving a moment of glamour last night as she arrived in bold fashion for the 2021 Latin American Music Awards.

The singer, who performed her bilingual duet “Tears of Gold” with David Bisbal during the show, took the red carpet in style with help from designer Iris Van Herpen. The country star modeled a gown with the standout brand’s signature touch: mind-bending prints and patterns; this particular number comes from its spring ’19 couture collection and features waves of warm tones with cutout paneling.

As for footwear, Underwood then elevated the look further with a set of platform heels. The sky-high pair came set atop a lifted toe with a matching stiletto heel to tout, appearing to measure over 5 inches in height.

As for Carrie Underwood herself, when she isn’t in stiletto heels and bold attire, the “Before He Cheats” singer typically keeps things low-key in athleisure and workout sneakers. Her go-to brand for apparel, of course, is her own activewear brand, Calia by Carrie Underwood. She tends to match pieces like leggings, tennis skirts, crop tops and more together with her other go-to brand for sweat-ready styles: Adidas. The Adidas Ultraboost may just be one of the country singer’s most beloved sneaker silhouettes — she owns the pairs in multiple different shades like all-white, all-black, all-pink and even a gold-accented design.

Underwood debuted her Calia brand in 2015 and has since gone on to create a series of seasonal workout-ready pieces. The 37-year-old also signed on as a global ambassador for cosmetics brand Almay in 2014. Though she can oftentimes be spotted in athleisure and sneakers, she also rotates in heels from brands like Jimmy Choo and René Caovilla.
