Carrie Underwood did something that has never been done before in the history of the Grammys. The entertainer sang while perfectly still and her gown was a screen that shared different digital images. The 55th Annual Grammy Awards had some surprises, but the fashion moment on stage had Underwood fans as well as fashion fans delighted on Sunday night.
With a gown that took 10 yards of Duchesse satin, 100 yards of tulle and crinoline and thousands of Swarovski crystals, this wasn’t easy to put together. Signed off by the production crew as well as Carrie’s stylist, the idea was to make a screen so images could be projected onto the fabric and give a remarkable visual performance.
The stars, rose petals and butterflies came together with the production team’s help and the gown was extra wide at the base so the screen could be seen by everyone. While it might not have been easy, the lightening would only work if Carrie stood in one spot, so the images could be perfectly projected on to the gown.
