Mariah-Oh-Meter: Rate Her Casual Look!

12/11/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

We’re so used to seeing Mariah Carey in full-on glam mode — big hair, little dresses — that we almost didn’t recognize her on a recent shopping excursion to Dior in Beverly Hills. The singer looks casual and trendy in her wedge boots, skinny dark jeans, and striped henley top. But it is still Mariah — don’t forget the sleek high ponytail, oversize shades, and some major diamonds. On a scale of One being Congresswoman conservative, and Ten being ready for her video vixen close-up, we’d give this look a 4. It’s the most covered-up that we’ve seen this diva in a long time. Tell us: On a scale of one to ten, how would you rate Mariah’s oh-factor in this look?

I think she looks great. She discovered how to wear clothes instead of pieces of fabric! Kudos. Still her style, but a bit more conservative. The colors and styles complement each other, and I like the boots. Very nice. *applauds*.

An improvement, but temporary I’m sure. She’ll be back in her Kelly Bundy dresses before you know it. Even this outfit looks a little young for her age.

She looks nice. It’s about time we saw her in some clothes! Very good look!

Try as she might, she simply never looks good. She constantly makes the mistake that the majority of Americans do … if I can squeeze myself into it, it fits. Forget about breathing, sitting, bending, etc. Well fitting, slightly loose clothing looks far better than second skin, especially when that FIRST skin is a wee bit chubby to begin with. Mariah always looks like the “before” picture – when is someone going to help her achieve the “after” improvements?!?!

I rate her an 8, I’d give her a 10 if her boots were black. Those camel colored boots don’t do well with her outfit.

No way dude. She’s still wearing stuff that is way too tight! Conservative my bottom!

Could she please try an item of clothing that isn’t second-skin tight? Ugh- no class in Mariah’s outfit even though she did manage to cover up more skin. Also, the shirt is a bit too raggedy looking, even for a casual day.

People still like her? Are you serious..ick..she’s trashy. She looks terrible.

Mariah always looks classy.

She really is Beautiful. It’s just hard to see that when she wears the “trashy” attire or tries to show so much skin.
We can see that she’s been blessed with a great physique…to show too much skin is overkill… It really would be a pleasant change for her to show a little more modesty by appearing in “age appropriate” attire. Afterall she is “Thirty Somethin”. I’m not saying to dress like the Queen Mum. There are many fashions out there to flatter her figure…they not only look great, but are slimming too!
