Mariah-Oh-Meter: Rate Her Look

08/07/2006 at 03:21 PM ET

How low did the scantily-dressed star go this weekend (with a one being Congresswoman conservative, and a ten being ready for her video vixen close-up)? Let’s check it out:

Exhibit A (left): The Adventures of Mimi Tour, Miami Saturday night
For this outfit, I’d rate Mariah an eight. She’s not quite off the charts, because she’s got her top and bottom both fully-covered (to which we say: Bravo, Mariah!), but that streaming chiffon—not to mention bare belly—definitely makes this borderline lingerie.

Exhibit B (near left): After-concert party, club Nocturnal
What, no plunging neckline? Or sky-high slit? Post-show, Mariah tones things down to a five, in a minidress that actually looks like it’s the right size.

On a scale of one to ten, how would you rate Mariah’s oh-factor in these looks? Let me know! Galina Espinoza

well this is what makes mariah …mariah ..we all know she is a gifted vocalist and her signature style is not classy or VOGUE so what?? its better that she stays herself..if you want to see a classy gown go look at nicole kidman …

i rate her a ten . she looks beautiful no matter what she has on. if everybody worried about what they were doing instead of trying to tell a grown woman what to do , the world would be a better place. she has to live for mariah and regardless of whether you like her style or not , she gonna do what makes mariah happy. i’m sure if it were britney or jessica wearing those same outfits, you’d all be ooohing and ahhing about how great they look. she’s 36 years old and she looks fabulous. go head sista do what you do and show these youngsters how a real woman does it.

OH DEAR, AS MARIAH WOULD SAY. YOU GUYS DONT EVEN KNOW A QUARTER OF WHAT SHES BEEN THROUGH IN LIFE, IF YOU DID I WOULD NOT SEE ALL THESE NEGATIVE POSTS. SHE WAS IN CAPTIVITY FOR SO LONG, SHES AT THE POINT NOW WHERE SHES SO COMFORTABLE, SHES HAVING FUN THAT SHE HAS BEEN DENIED FOR SO LONG, AND IM PROUD OF HER. SHE DOESNT CARE WHAT YOU THINK ANYMORE ABOUT HER ENSEMBLES, SHE DOESNT CARE WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT HER WIEGHT OR HER KOOKY BUT GENUINE PERSONALITY, YOU CAN VENT ALL YOU WANT, BUT SHE WILL SIMPLY LOOK AT THESE POSTS AND LAUGH. SHE SPENT YEARS OF HER LIFE ALWAYS LOOKING OUT FOR THE NEXT PERSON, IN HER ADULT LIFE AND CHILDHOOD, NOW SHES DOING HER THANG, AND MY MY MY HOW SWEET DOES SHE DO IT. SOMETIMES HER LOOKS ARE A LITTLE OVER THE EDGE, BUT HEY, NOBODYS PERFECT. ONE THING MARIAH IS NOT, IS TRASHY. SHE WORKED HARD AND HONESTLY FOR EVERYTHING SHE HAS, SHE DIDNT SLEEP HER WAY UP TO THE TOP OF THE LADDER, IF YOU KNOW WHAT IM SAYING. I LOVE THE HAIR, WHETHER ITS CURLY OR STRAIGHT, I LOVE THE FACT THAT SHES DOING THE CURLY THING, FOR THOSE OF US WHO KNEW MARIAH 16 YEARS AGO, HER HAIR WAS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING NEXT TO HER VOICE. OK, ANYWAYS, THE TURQUIOSE MINI SHE WORE TO THE PARTY WAS VERY LADY LIKE NUMBER, THE COLOR REALLY BROUGHT OUT HER SKIN TONE, I CAN ONLY HOPE I LOOK THAT GOOD WHEN IM 36. GO AHEAD MARIAH!

I think Mariah is a beautiful person with a beautiful body. Why should she walk around dressed like a school marm just because people don’t like her wardrobe? She always looks beautiful and people constantly criticizing her outfits is getting kind of old. She’s a grown woman and she’s going to wear what she wants for as long as she wants. So, please people, let it go. What matters is her voice and her music, not her wardrobe.

she looks amazing in both.

Mariah is, as I observe her, a person who just wants to do things that makes her happy. Like most of others has mentioned in here, she did have her difficult times, but then whoever didnt’t among celebrities? Like any others, rich or poor, life has just to move on and she’s doing it her own way, no matter what people say about it. Unfortunately, how she dresses herself doesn’t fit in to what she really is. She is considered one of the Divas and sings with whoever she wants to; be it in a profesional way or Rap. I wonder if she may be an appropriate person to sing in jazz. I mean, the real jazz ok? Like Sarah Vaughan, Shirley Horn, Ella Fitzgerald or so…She can be that professional if she really want to and not to focus too much in Rap. But then again, a rich gal like her can always do what she wants, sky’s the limit. lol Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a fan. As to how she dresses? What the heck!She can go naked if she wants to.

hey from sydney :) the blue dress is cute and the heels are the right colour, but mariah seriously NO MORE ANKLE STRAPS. they are the biggest crime in shoe fashion history and only work if you have REALLY long legs. mariah has nice legs but ankle straps will always make u look short fat and stumpy. as for the ‘ensemble’ on the left. oh lord. the cape is cool and diva, the shoes are good. but mariah, im sorry, ur aint got the bod to pull that off. what happened to the outfits from the charmbracelet era? they were her most beautiful ever. even the whole shorts and visor thing looked good then.

I think Mariah was a lot better back in the day, the voice is the same which is amazing but she honestly dresses like a 14yr old girl…she is being expressive in her own way but if she wants anyone to look up to her like an idol she needs to cover herself up! They always said she had the best legs in the business…but she’s getting older and she should be dressing with more class.

It is very easy to judge others, particularly those who hold high positions in our culture. As a clinical psychologist, however, I believe it might be interesting to look at this issue in the context of ageing and ageism in our culture. Isn’t Mariah’s style simply that of a woman navigating her way through the domain of what our society promotes about women? I think the focus should be taken away from Ms. Carey who is simply an example of an individual who is dealing within a greater psychological context.
