It feels like just yesterday we were watching Carrie Underwood steal America’s country-loving heart on American Idol, but this Southern sweetheart is a long way from her pre-fame days.
The 31-year-old has frequently graced the cover of Allure magazine, and now she’s taking us behind the scenes of her most recent shoot. Candid shots of the blonde bombshell show her lounging around a beautiful historic building, while donning gorgeous outfits by A-list designers Gucci, Burberry, and Calvin Klein.
“Three of my favorites,” the fashionista says with a smile.
The Allure team actually flew to Oklahoma City to meet up with Carrie, who had stopped in the city for her tour. “We thought we would do the pictures as if she was in a hotel room, having room service after her performance,” explains creative director Paul Cavaco.
The results are beautiful, as is the songstress! That glowing natural look? That’s actually all Carrie who says she likes to do her own hair and makeup whenever she gets the chance. Way to keep your feet on the ground, Ms. American Idol! Oh, and those feet? The country cutie says she’ll take high heels over cowboy boots any day!
