Carrie Underwood’s unusual dress lights up Grammy stage

Her dress used projection technology to change patterns while she was singing.

When Carrie Underwood took the Grammy stage Sunday night, she stood completely still. It seemed a little stiff, until she started singing her hit Blown Away, and her dress became a show of its own.

There are so many big performances at the Grammys and sometimes I like to just stand still and perform,” Underwood said backstage. “So (the dress) was the best way to do it, to create a cool environment.”

Over the course of six days, fabrics were shipped from France to Carrie’s stylist team for approval, as well as to a video production company to make sure it was compatible with the projection technology that would be used to make it change patterns every few seconds.

The Theia couture platinum ball gown, which was created by four people in 80 hours, features 10 yards of satin along with 100 yards of tulle and crinoline to support the skirt. The inside corset is hand-embroidered with thousands of Swarovski crystals, and the 4 1/2-foot-wide skirt was designed to seamlessly fuse fashion with projection technology.
