Mariah Carey In Alexander McQueen – BET Black Girls Rock! 2013

Mariah Carey In Alexander McQueen - BET Black Girls Rock! 2013

Mariah Carey made an appearance on the BET Black Girls Rock! 2013 stage held at New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, New Jersey on Saturday to honour legendary singer Patti Labelle.

The singer, who has never been shy of showing off her body, wore a black crop top with an Alexander McQueen Resort 2013 black skirt featuring gold embroidered details.

You may remember that we first saw Mariah in this skirt when it was formally a dress worn on American Idol back in March last year.

I’m not sure what Mariah was thinking on this occasion, but I don’t find this flattering at all. From the neck down, it’s a no from me.

    WOW. This is bad. She has a great figure, but it is not well-served by a sports bra and tight skirt. Add to that the fact that I don’t think a bra like crop top is EVER appropriate, and we have quite the horrible tacky look.

    I’m embarrassed on her behalf.

    This is gross in so many ways…

    I LOVE MC- but the woman has a delusional diva mentality. She thinks she can dress/post instagram selfies like the tween and 20-something new divas do, but sadly she is mistaken. Of course, for a woman of her age and having had twins, I think she looks great and I can only hope to look like that. But definitely she has a unique shape that isn’t suited for crops. Just wish she had a better stylist (and maybe a therapist)!

    This is a HAM. She is not svelte enough to bare her belly nor is this look apporpriate for the function she attended (compared to the way others were dressed.) She does well with a look or two and then back to Tackyville seconds later. I don’t get it. Surely she has enough money for a stylist with a great track record and good taste. I love Mimi but this is HORRID!

    this cannot be real! One cannot possibly look this horrendous with noone letting them know before they step out the house!!!!!

    Not only is this tacky and terribly event-inappropriate, it’s unflattering. Not to body-shame here, but she has to know a woman with her figure can’t pull off a crop top that resembles a sports bra. In fact, I can’t think of many people who would be able to wear this with grace and ease, not even among daring supermodels.

    Yikes, I feel sorry for the dress in all of this, poor McQueen dress/skirt didn’t ask for this kind of abuse. Mariah is always a hot mess.

    The worst.

  13. Christine October 28, 2013 at 2:01 pm #

    A no.

  14. AnderBoBo October 28, 2013 at 1:40 pm #

    This may have been salvageable if she had worn it similar to the lookbook, but her consistently unflattering (borderline delusional at this point) styling drags this down so far down that this might as well be Forever 21.

    • KatieKate October 29, 2013 at 4:56 am #

      Hey, don’t insult Forever 21!!!

    Ladies and gentleman, miss Mariah Carey in an act of desperation.

    • jo October 28, 2013 at 2:38 pm #

      +1 and I love you for the Chicago reference.

  16. amy October 28, 2013 at 12:35 pm #

    oh this is so unflattering. I have no words… just no Mariah

  17. sam October 28, 2013 at 12:17 pm #

    Horrendous. Enough said.

  18. kinella October 28, 2013 at 12:10 pm #

    oh gosh… is she best buddy with anna dello russo?

    i understand being fascinated by fashion and, having the money, wanting to wear everything in trend on the market but, before leaving the house, to give a look in the mirror is not a bad idea and to understand what is or is not flattering for our body shape and age is a must.

  19. jo October 28, 2013 at 11:56 am #

    what on earth was she thinking? 😮

  20. Pedro October 28, 2013 at 11:20 am #

    Worst look of the year!
    She is so damn tacky

    • Mick October 28, 2013 at 11:57 am #

      Definitely a contender for worst look of the year!

    • mm October 28, 2013 at 3:13 pm #

      I just want to be nice. But i cant. She stays Tacky.

      • helene October 28, 2013 at 3:49 pm #

        she is a serious competitor of Kim Kardashian for the worst look of the year!!

    • peepers October 28, 2013 at 4:07 pm #

      Yes. This is a “People of Wal Mart” look.

  21. emma October 28, 2013 at 11:05 am #

    she looked stunning in the original dress, why would you mess with that.

  22. kane October 28, 2013 at 10:50 am #

    Wow, I hardly wouldn’t dare to lie on my sofa like that in the privacy of my own home.

    • kane October 28, 2013 at 11:40 am #

      And there’s a double negative that I am wholly aware of. Now.

  23. Noemi October 28, 2013 at 10:43 am #

    I don’t understand… is the house of McQueen having financial problems, did somebody of the pr office go crazy? This skirt looks like a sarong.
    Alexander McQueen is maybe turning in the grave.

    Esta mujer tiene una gran habilidad para destrozar cualquier look.

    • H October 28, 2013 at 2:05 pm #

      Nadie le gana a Mariah en ese aspecto, horrible!
