Leave it to Carrie Underwood to make pregnancy look effortlessly elegant. The 35-year-old superstar wowed on the red carpet prior to the 2018 American Music Awards in a black gown with gold embroidered details, which hugged her curves and showed off her burgeoning belly in a tasteful, yet sexy manner.

Underwood completed her look with gold pointed heels and gold earrings, making for a striking ensemble overall. Her appearance marked her first red carpet walk since announcing her pregnancy two months ago. She picked up the trophy for Favorite Female Artist (Country) early in the night, and performed her new track, "Spinning Bottles," live later in the evening.
