You’ve got to admire a girl who knows what works for her — and sticks with it! While promoting her 18th Number One single, “Touch My Body,” everywhere from New York to London to Paris, Mariah Carey honed in on a solid combo — colored, cropped bomber jackets (from Gucci and Members Only), skintight black dresses and matching sky-high heels. We love Mariah’s simple plan of attack when packing for such an extensive promotion tour, but we’d get bored too quickly! Tell us: What do you think of Mariah’s new signature look? Do you love it or hate it?

I think Mariah Carey needs to dress for her body type – this look is for someone who is a lot smaller than her – it looks like she borrowed her little sisters clothes!

She’s beautiful, and talented, but she’s 38 years old. She needs to classify her look a little. I’m happy that’s she’s rocking the curves, though (excluding the fake boobs, of course).

The issue isn’t her size or her age, it is that she is tacky!!! This outfit wouldn’t look good on anybody. Not even a size 2 16 yr. old would look better. Bottom line is that mariah just has awful taste!!

i don’t like this. she’s not 22 anymore so she needs to quit dressing like it. i love mariah, i just wish that her style were more sophisticated.

What is signature about a look consisting of tight black skirt/pants, tight tank top and a bomber jacket that is appropriate attire between the age 16 to 19?
She should have grown out of this style long long time ago.

She’s beautiful, her body is perfect, and if I looked like her I would wear anything.

I’m glad she isnt a size zero and she looks great without being all anorexic and skeletal like alot of the older stars. Keep doing what you like ignore the haters without more #1s than Elvis.

Mariah needs to learn a little class. She is a wealthy lady but she dresses like a cheap tramp 90% of the time.

Whenever I see a photo of Mariah Carey, all I can think is how hard she’s trying to be sexy. No matter what she wears, she looks like she’s standing on a corner selling $5 bjs. It’s not just the clothes that make her look like a hooker; it’s her poses. I think she would probably look like a streetwalker even in a Chanel suit. She’s obviously very talented, she’s funny and seems like a nice person, but it’s really hard to get past her appearance. I keep hoping that, as she matures, she’ll find a little dignity and style. I shudder to think what she’ll look like in 30 years.
