The Carrie Diaries

For her first MC cover shoot, in Nashville, Tennessee, Carrie Underwood acted like a girl about to play dress up, fawning over silk Burberry, floral Oscar de la Renta, and embellished Giambattista Valli. The 1950s Hollywood-glamour-inspired wardrobe was a far cry from the outfit she arrived in: no-name sweatpants, Havaianas, and a Nashville Predators sweatshirt — her husband, Mike Fisher, plays center for the team. In hair and makeup, she revealed plans for the home they're building together, complete with an elevator for when Fisher retires from the hard knocks of hockey. At first Underwood found the luxury impractical, but soon warmed to the idea like someone accustomed to a smooth ride to the top. —Ashley Ross
