WHERE & WHEN: Lee Daniels’ “The Butler” New York City Premiere on August 5, 2013.
WEARING: Tom Ford dress, Valentino shoes
MY VERDICT: I don’t think an arm sling has ever looked this good! Mariah didn’t let her dislocated shoulder injury put a damper on her style when she hit the red carpet for the New York premiere of Lee Daniels’ “The Butler”. The “Beautiful” singer, who was joined by her husband Nick Cannon, wore a sexy low-cut Tom Ford black dress with an attached black leather sling that was completely embellished with silver pyramid studs.
Normally I wouldn’t be so thrilled with a plunging neck on an ample chest but, because of the strap, it wasn’t unflattering and it actually helped the strap to not look as constricting.
Mariah passed on her usual glamorous curls for slightly wavy golden tresses that were pushed off her face with a black headband. I love her dress, her makeup, her hair, and the jewelry—I think the only downside came with the shoes.
She wore Valentino Couture lace open toe platform pumps with an oversize bow at the vamp, but Mariah should have stuck by a sleek point toe black pump to compliment without fighting for attention.
