There's no doubt Carrie Underwood is one gorgeous woman. As a Grammy Award-winning singer, she's a fixture on the red carpet, and she always looks stunning. Her upbeat, happy personality make her a pleasure to watch, so it's hard to believe anyone could find something to tease her for. But it seems like her not-so-nice classmates have helped her build some tough skin.
