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

As a diehard Mariah fan, I admit i am somewhat bias as a rater of her looks. I adore Mariah and everything she does, but I have to say that she is getting a litte, shall we say, “mature” for the first look. On the other hand, I think that at 36, (four years away from being “over the hill”) it is amazing that she can actually look more then decent in such a scandelous outfit. I personally prefere the aqua dress, and other less revealing outfits on Mariah, she is gorgeous and sexy with or without showing skin, and at the end of the day it really doesn’t matter what she’s wearing, she’s still got a voice, she is still Mariah, and no one can argue with that.

You guys are all saying the same thing. It’s kind of silly, really. She’s NOT even 40 yet, and Mariah RARELY if ever dresses the way she is dressed in that far left photo anymore. Was there a time? Yes. Was it wrong? …to an extent. But she really is all about the LV and the Chanel couture dresses and three-pieces now…not hotpants. Now, the miniskirts?

You’re all just jealous if you have a problem with miniskirts. Like you’re all saying – THIS IS THE 21st CENTURY. It’s not a big deal.

Get over it.

Oh, I forgot to say that the whole reason she’s wearing that outfit on the left is for her tour. Tours have costumes regularly. Unless you’re Celine, and even though Mariah’s voice is great, she chooses not to be an Adult Contemporary singer. And she’s still successful.

…and she was raised in a gay environment. So, there’s that, as well.

All this media about Mariah losing weight, but she looks the same. When she first came out until the mid 1990’s, thats when she was small. Thats when she looked her best and she wasn’t even trying.

As a Mariah fan for the past sixteen years, I’ve defended most of her decisions about how she promotes herself. But now I must admit that it appears that Mariah STILL has not resolved her self-esteem issues relative to her ethnicity. She’s one of the most profoundly genetically gifted human beings ever to exist, but her wardrobe seems all too often to send a message of “I hate myself for being multi-ethic”. How truly sad that she seems to really feel that way, because she’s forgetting that our genetic/biological diversity is what allowed us to survive as a species for so many countless milllenia.(The dinosaurs weren’t quite so lucky, were they? Hmmmmmm.)

Honestly, they’re showing the skimpiest of the 9 outfits that she wore at the concert.. she looked good in the other outfits, but I do agree that she should cover it up a lil bit.

Thanks Mariah for giving us the chance to see you looking so damn hot,God bless you for having those legs…you look hot don´t let other women say you don´t look bad because they are only wishing they had your body.
