ICYMI: A Closer Look at Mariah Carey’s Festive, Fabulous Fashion For Her Holiday Special
Mariah Carey, queen of Christmas, is here to save the holidays. Today, on Apple TV, the iconic singer is releasing her much-anticipated Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special, a musical event that aims to bring a festive spirit to this holiday month through song and dance. It’s a star-studded affair, including a special performance with Carey, Ariana Grande, and Jennifer Hudson for their new song, “Oh Santa!” as well as guest cameos from Snoop Dogg, Billy Eichner, Misty Copeland, Tiffany Haddish, Jermaine Dupri, and more. Equally as festive as the Christmas spectacle? The custom-made, thematic fashions that Carey wears—and Vogue has a closer look at all of the dazzling creations.
Style-wise, Carey is known for her glamorous aesthetic; the diva rarely hits a stage without her evening gowns, often embellished with crystals, sequins, or feathers. For the Christmas special, Carey incorporated holiday signatures into the festive looks. Highlights include a snowflake-like white ball gown completely covered in silvery sequins, and a Nutcracker-inspired mini dress, trimmed with gold piping and, again, crystals! For a performance with Snoop Dogg (who wears a Santa outfit) and her set with Grande and Hudson, Carey also wears a low-cut mini dress with a sequin tartan print applied overtop it. It’s her favorite silhouette, Christmas-ified.
