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?

Pearls with leopard print? Cleavage around children? Maybe her l’s sound like r’s to her stylist (if she has one) and she was trying to say “classy”…

Maybe she is hinting we should end famine in Africa by feeding them milk!


I love Mariah, always have, always will, but…She is so gorgeous, I wish she would dress better!!! The dress does not fit the occasion, but it never really does. Dam girl, get it together, Im still routin for ya!

I rate her outfit a solid 1. We know she has a great body but I am really tired of seeing it constantly. Who is trying to impress?

NO.Just NO.

Who ever told Mariah she looks good, was lying. She gives the ladies of the night a constant run for their money!

This look is not a good look for anyone anytime. However on her behalf, why do you people think she is fat. That is why there a nine and ten year old girls out there starving themselves to death because people think you have to be a size double 0.

Totally inappropriate to wear to the opening of a children’s school!!! But as other’s have said this is not suprising coming from Mariah. She has no clue at all when it comes to fashion. If its tight and low cut and short you can bet Mariah will be wearing it.

However Mariah wasn’t the only one who made a weird fashion choice at that opening. What was Oprah thinking with that bubble gum pink, floor length – looked like it was made from bed sheets – dress??? A nicely tailored suit would have looked much better.

I think the students were the only appropriatly dressed ones in their smart green uniforms!

Tigers don’t even live in Africa. She’s more dressed for streaking through India, hehe.

hahaha! just because you are in africa doesn’t mean you have to dress like a wild animal! but, really, she’s too old to change her ways and she will never “get it”.
