The songstress unleashed her inner diva and flaunted her figure when she took the stage for the finale!
Mariah Carey certainly knows how to captivate an audience! Whether it’s with her powerful voice or her major fashion statements, the 43-year-old songstress loves to steal the spotlight — and that’s exactly what she did when she performed on the American Idol season 12 finale on May 16. In a strapless white gown that hugged her figure like a glove, Mariah put her curves on full display. The singer appears to have trimmed down, which was visible in the white gown.
Mariah Carey ‘American Idol’ Performance Dress:
The mermaid silhouette was embellished with feathers around the bust line and fanned out to reveal a tulle bottom. As if the gown wasn’t glam enough, Mariah was dripping in diamonds — and they were so eye-catching! Statement earrings, a necklace, cuff and cocktail rings added a major dose of bling to her ensemble, while Mariah wore her hair sleek and straight. Full, fluttering lashes rounded out the look. While I appreciate Mariah’s affinity for bling she also reminds me of a 5-year-old girl playing dress up, piling on as much jewelry as she could find. More is more in Mariah’s book, but in this case she didn’t need all the diamonds. Her simple ‘do was appropriate but with her hair falling around her shoulders it was hard to keep the focus on the dress, (especially with all the blinding jewels)!
I don’t think Mariah has ever met a mermaid gown she didn’t like. Sure, the silhouette is exactly what we have grown to expect to see on her practically every time she steps out, but I think the glam factor really matches her personality and her voice, (which is obviously larger-than-life). If this were someone else I might admit that I was bored by the look but in this instance I think Mariah really rocked it — although she could have toned down the accessories.
What do you think of Mariah’s finale performance dress? Did she look white hot or are you so sick of seeing her in a form-fitting gown?
