Mariah-Oh-Meter: Rate Her Africa Look!

01/03/2007 at 01:00 PM ET

Oh, Mimi. Even though we know she likes to wear short, tight dresses to children’s charity events, we were a little surprised by the curve-hugging, cleavage-enhancing getup she wore to the opening of Oprah Winfrey’s school in South Africa. The pearls are a duly noted conservative touch, and it’s always nice to see her with some natural curl in her hair. But a tiger print? Is that a nod to the locale or perhaps a safari was on her schedule later in the day? Well, at least you can say that she dresses for the occasion! Tell us: On a scale of One to Ten, how would you rate Mariah’s oh-factor in this look?

6 out of 10- at least the dress doesn’t look like a dead animal like those horrible fluffy uggs. it would a ten if it wasn’t for the clevage. i dont think i would ever wear this though.

I don’t think she will ever get it.

On a scale of 1 to 10? -3. This woman must lack any type of self esteem if she has to constantly display her cleavage like some neon advertisement. Methinks she’s simply trying to divert attention away from the fact that she has no redeeming qualities whatsoever i.e. personality, wit, charm, etc. She must also be a firm believer in “If I can stuff myself into it, then it fits!” She doesn’t have a wardrobe … just closets full of questionably fashionable sausage casings.

OMG, how embarassing. What made her think that going for a sexy, cleavage look is what you wear in the middle of Africa for a children’s charity event? The first poster is right, she’ll just never get it.

KD on

Poor thing, she’s clueless.

Tiffany on

What kind of message is she sending to these kids? Look like a street walker? She does not look good.

Bunky on

Why does she bother to get dressed at all?

Dawn on

When will she ever learn to dress herself so she doesn’t look like a lady of the night?

Becky on

she looks like a skank as usual. SHe is in africa i guess she thought she was going with a theme, but she was going to a girls school so she is showing girls to let it all hang out?
not a good role model at all, i give her a -10. I am sick of seeing her dressed like a hooker.

I like the dress, but it’s way inappropriate. But that’s Mariah Carey for you.
