OFFSTAGE: Underwood vs. Swift vs. Holmes

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

It must be fashion poll week or something. Because country’s two leading ladies are popping up all over the Internet because of their trendsetting ways. First, Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift go head-to-head in an MSN poll. There are 10 shots of them in everything from white mini dresses to red gowns to super-casual street clothes. You can vote on whose outfit is better, even though they both look fabulous in every single one. Then Swift is in another fashion comparison, in E!’s popular Bitch Stole My Look poll. She is in a creamy lavender Contrarian New York backless dress with a full skirt. Very pretty with silver open-toe pumps. So you can vote for Swift or Katie Holmes (Nicole Kidman’s ex-husband’s current wife), who wore the same dress in navy. As of right now, Swift is winning this battle. But if you like her look better than Holmes’, by all means, let your style opinions be heard. And if you love it so much you want it, I found it for under $400.
