Massages and blow-outs and Nutcracker passes, fitness bootcamp to tone glutes in three classes, strappy high heels that make your feet look like they’re tied up in string — these are a few of Carrie Underwood’s favorite things.
In honor of the live production of The Sound of Music LIVE, airing this Thursday at 8pm EST on NBC, Underwood — who plays mischievous musical governess Maria — is serving as guest curator for luxury online retail sites Gilt and Gilt City, offering fashion deals and discounts at her favorite places to eat, exercise, and relax.
The Gilt sale features some of Underwood’s favorite fashion labels, entertainment events, restaurants, and beauty spots in cities around the country. Underwood’s style picks include clothes, shoes and accessories from designer brands like Stuart Weitzman, Kenneth Jay Lane, and Carolina Herrera. Among the discount packages offered is dinner at her favorite Italian restaurant in Boston, calorie burning workout sessions in New York City, a couple’s massage in Chicago, and tickets to a performance of the Atlanta Ballet’s Nutcracker.
In an interview with Gilt’s StyleFile blog, Underwood talks about scoring the role of Maria von Trapp, visiting Austria to get inspired, and preparing for the live performance with the help of a team that included voice teachers, choreographers, and an acting coach.
