Between Kim Kardashian in a flaming hot Balenciaga outfit and Mariah Carey wearing Tom Ford in her pool, the internet is having a field day thanks to fashion. If you forgot that no one can upstage Mariah, then here’s a pleasant reminder.
The queen of all things diva took to Instagram to celebrate the 17th anniversary of her critically acclaimed album, The Emancipation of Mimi. Mariah celebrated the special occasion by taking a dip in her swimming pool wearing a dazzling dress. But it wasn’t just any dress, it was a custom sequined Tom Ford gown from the spring/summer 2022 collection. The visual is just as epic as you may have anticipated.
Her 20-minute Instagram Live (which is still available on her page to rewatch) features the star interacting with her fans, discussing the 2005 album, which she claimed was “one of her favourites ever”, and checking that her team didn’t film her from her “bad side”.
Mariah fans will know that the music legend has always had a penchant for Ford’s work. In her 1997 video for “Honey”, the star wore an LBD and heels designed by Tom during his era-defining reign as Gucci’s creative director.
