Is Mariah Carey Santa's sexiest elf?

Sunday 1 December 2013

If there's one celebrity waiting with jingle bells on for Christmas, it's Mariah Carey. The songstress devotes much of December each year to donning sexy ensembles full of Christmas spirit. Which one of Carey's holiday get-ups makes you feel merriest?
In a move that admittedly took us by surprise a bit, Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber teamed up to unveil a sassy new take on the classic Christmas song "All I Want for Christmas is You". With Carey dressed as a super-sexy Mrs. Claus, the video has a - how shall we say - little Mrs. Robinson feel to it. Still, she looked amazing... we'd gladly put our saddlebags and cellulite under the tree if dear old Saint Nick (or Justin Bieber, whoever's less busy) would consider swapping them for a figure like Carey's.
A holiday tradition in New York City, the Tree Lighting Ceremony at Rockefeller Square has seen some big name stars put their stamp on the occasion by performing. While taping her performance for the event, Mariah Carey rocks around the Christmas tree in a stunning silver strapless gown complete with a faux white-fur stole and enough sparkle to light up the night sky.
It was a moment of holiday genius: Jimmy Fallon recruited The Roots, Mariah Carey and an assortment of random elementary school instruments to perform a quirky version of Carey's "All I Want for Christmas is You". In a festive floor-length red dress, Carey was lovely, likable and - now that you mention it - full of Christmas cheer. And the cutie-pie kids were a nice touch, too.
To promote her "Christmas Time is in the Air Again" album last November, Carey tweeted up a storm. She included a cozy little picture of Christmas for her fans in the form of her album cover. Cloaked in what appears to be a red-silk robe and nothing else, Carey beams from the floor of a Norman Rockwell-ish living room vignette.
Carey's obsession with Christmas cuteness didn't happen overnight. The songbird has been singing this holiday's praises for years. All the way back in 2004, she showed off her Christmas spirit - and fantastic legs - in a mini-dress for Walt Disney World's annual Christmas Day Parade. And we'd be willing to wager the park really was the happiest place on Earth that day for any single men in her midst.
