Carrie Underwood was pretty in pastels at the 2022 American Music Awards.

The 39-year-old Denim & Rhinestones artist graced the A-list event held on Sunday, November 20, to perform her song “Crazy Angels,” and was also a nominee for Favorite Female Country Artist and Favorite Country Album. She might have lost to Taylor Swift in both categories but she was certainly a winner on the red carpet with her outfit choice, which showcased not only her whimsical-glam style but also those uber-famous legs of hers! Scroll to see.

Pastel Perfect

Underwood hit the AMAs carpet in a pink gown boasting a plunging neckline, fringe details in various pastel hues, draped straps, and a thigh-high slit that showed off her incredibly toned leg. She shared a pic on Instagram captioned, “Happy to be on the red carpet at the @amas!!! Can’t wait to perform!!!” and gave credit to her team, which included hairstylist and makeup artist Melissa Schleicher, stylist Emma Trask, and fashion designer Tony Ward.

'Vivid Hues'

The brand also uploaded a photo of the American Idol alum’s look to their Instagram page, which they captioned, “Rendered in vivid hues of multi-colored Charleston embroidered dress worn by the beautiful @carrieunderwood as she attends the @amas 2022.” For added sparkle, the singer teamed it with a pair of crystal-covered sandals and dangling gemstone earrings.

Hair And Makeup

As for hair and makeup, Schleicher (who flew to Los Angeles from Tennessee just to glam up Underwood for the evening) opted for a voluminous wavy ‘do and a beauty look in neutral tones.

As expected, the “Before He Cheats” hitmaker’s Instagram post got a lot of love from friends and fans. Many comments were about her iconic legs, including “The greatest legs in country music history 👍💪,” “She never skips leg day!!! 🔥🔥🔥,” and “OH MY QUAD.”

'Sweetheart With A Wild Side'

For her acrobatic performance of “Crazy Angels” (she entered the stage via a cage flying above the audience!), Underwood changed into more comfortable attire: a color-block catsuit in black, white, pink, and blue with see-through panels. She slipped out of her heels and sang barefoot, too. The American Music Awards’ official Instagram page shared a short clip of the performance, which they captioned, “She’s a sweetheart with a wild side - and we love it! 😇👼 @carrieunderwood.” Watch it below.
