Carrie Underwood Goes Wild for Leopard Prints in Purple Chainmail Dress & 5-Inch Heels at CMT Awards 2022

Carrie Underwood’s glamorous style took a turn for the sleek at the 2022 CMT Awards on Monday night.

The “Denim & Rhinestones” musician arrived on the red carpet with husband Mike Fisher, wearing a purple chainmail minidress covered in black leopard print. The slick number featured thin shoulder and halter straps to create a cutout silhouette, with added sultriness from black lace trim and a side slit. Completing Underwood’s ensemble was a black clutch covered in crystals, as well as sparkling diamond drop earrings and rings embellished with purple stones.

For footwear, the “If I Didn’t Love You” singer went sky-high in a set of towering platform heels. The style included glossy black patent leather uppers in a pointed-toe silhouette, featuring a thick platform sole. Completing the pair, which complemented her dress’ print to create a streamlined look, were stiletto heels totaling at least 5 inches in height.
