When Carrie Underwood auditioned her senior year for American Idol, she arrived a wearing a pink off-the-shoulder t-shirt, a white lace tank top underneath and blue jeans. With her hair bleach blonde and curly, no one could have expected this bright-eyed senior to become the next American Idol, let alone a fashion icon.

Carrie Underwood's rise to fame was immediate. From red carpets to on-stage, Underwood has a style all her own. She currently leads the American Idol pack this week in album sales, selling more 1.3Million records and topping the Billboard 200 charts at #44.

We are used to seeing Underwood in her classic blue jeans and flannel top but she's not afraid of glamming it up for a evening out on the town or on-stage. Underwood stunned this year at the Grammy's and continues to WOW on and off stage.

Today, Underwood turns 30-years-old. With such a promising future, we can't wait to see what this songstress has in store!
