Carrie Underwood—our favorite red carpet risk taker–has the very tangerine June cover of Glamour, as shot by Ben Watts. While we were glancing over interview highlights, we couldn’t help but think Underwood had her own excellent entry for Regrets Week here at TheGloss.
Underwood’s specific species of regret? Buyer’s remorse.
Glamour: What was the first big, irresponsible, awesome purchase you made when your career took off?
Carrie Underwood: My first stupid purchase was an accident. I was in Paris and went into one of those big, name-brand, fancy-schmancy designers, and I picked up a sweatshirt. Maybe I didn’t understand the price tag. I’m really bad with numbers. But when I went to check out, that sucker was $2,000.
G: Two thousand dollars for a sweatshirt! What was it made of?
CU: Not cashmere but thicker than cotton. I’ve worn it twice.
Oh man. Imagine you’re a famous pop star and you’ve just come into your first big royalty check. You want to treat yourself to something extravagant with a designer label. But–upon deciding the pricetags are a little rich for your blood–you grab a soft, humble sweatshirt and head to the register.
Now. What’s worse: stifling all good sense and going through with the purchase, or enduring the humiliation of having to put it back? Those judgey designer boutique clerks must bank on this.
Also. Our guess is Balenciaga!
