Mariah Carey and Shay Mitchell just kicked spring off with a major style showdown! Proving great minds think alike, the two wore the same nude wrap dress with sparkling embellishment just weeks apart. Get the details on their designer duplicate, and let us know who wore it best!
If there’s one person we would never want to go up against in a fashion face-off, it’s Shay Mitchell (aka Slay Mitchell), but pop diva Mariah Carey, 46, did just that. After Mariah wore the sparkling wrap dress pre-performance at the London 02 Arena on March 23, Shay decided to don the same dress in LA on April 13 at the premiere of her new film, Mother’s Day.
Regardless of whose style you prefer, there’s no denying the girls both have great (and expensive) taste, as they were wearing the Alika Wrap Dress by Temperley London, $7,975. If the name sounds familiar, it’s because Duchess Kate Middleton is a fan of the designer, too, recently wearing a crop top and maxi skirt combo while touring India and Bhutan.
But despite wearing the same dress, Mariah and Shay styled the full-length silk dress very differently. Adding an even more over-the-top element to the dress, which featured mirror embroidery, a v-neck and thigh-high slit, Mariah chose to pair her dress with a white fur coat. Keeping her long hair super straight and shiny, Mariah’s beauty look included a bold smokey eye and glossy nude lip.
Shay gave her Temperley London wrap dress a summery feel by letting the plunging v-neck take center stage, and showing off shimmering bronzed skin. To complete her effortless look, Shay’s hair was styled into an undone braid and her makeup was left minimal, too, with lots of bronzer and a nude lip.
The wrap dress style is an iconic look that can be worn dressed up like Mariah and Shay, or worn with a more casual approach for the office or an afternoon out with friends. For a super sparkly take on the classic cut, try the French Connection Lunar Sparkle Sequin Wrap Dress, $89.99. Or, keep it simple for the summer with the Diane von Furstenberg Kayley Two Cotton Eyelet Wrap Dress, $368.
