While she may have gotten her big gift early (her newborn baby Isaiah Michael Fisher!), today is the day—Carrie Underwood's birthday!

The country singer turns 32 today, and we're eagerly anticipating her return to the red carpet after an extended pregnancy hiatus. But in the meantime, we'll settle for looking back at her many red carpet high notes.

Although she skipped the Grammys this year (much to our chagrin), the American Idol winner crushed the 2013 show in an exquisite black Roberto Cavalli design. Later that year, the new mom practically ignited the CMA Awards red carpet in a sheer beaded Ralph & Russo Couture confection—before the sheer trend caught on, we might add.

She quite literally sparkled at the 2012 Grammys in a mesmerizing Gomez-Gracia number, and again went for glitter with a strapless champagne Badgley Mischka gown at the 2011 Golden Globes.  And who could forget her whimsical Oscar de la Renta dress from the 2012 Nordstrom Symphony fashion show in Nashville? Certainly not us!
