How is she keeping that dress on?

Sunday 9 February 2014

Mariah Carey hit all the right notes in a very revealing black gown at the BET Honors at Warner Theatre in downtown Washington DC on Saturday evening. The superstar singer slid her sexy body on to a piano to sing at the event, which fetes African Americans performing at top levels in music, literature, entertainment, education and more.
But although the audience no doubt enjoyed her performance, it's likely that many viewers will have been wondering whether or not the 43-year-old's ample assets would remain inside the bodice of her dress. The gown clung to her curves like a glove and displayed an eyeful of cleavage and side boob.
In fact, Mariah's outfit looked more than a little like the red dress worn by voluptuous cartoon character Jessica Rabbit in 1988 movie hit Who Framed Roger Rabbit? The I Will Always Love You singer's blonde tresses were gently curled and framed her beautifully made-up face. She accessorised with long black gloves, a blingy necklace and matching earrings.
Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin, Motown founder Berry Gordy, rapper-actor Ice Cube, American Express chairman-CEO Ken Chenault and photographer and video artist Carrie Mae Weems all received tributes at the show, which was hosted by actor and comedian Wayne Brady.
Others who performed at the show included Jennifer Hudson, Janelle Monae, Tamar Braxton and Smokey Robinson. Artists Ludacris and Mack Wilds, Scandal actor Joe Morton and activist/talk host Rev. Al Sharpton were tapped as presenters.
Proceeds from BET Honors' limited ticket sales will benefit the Women Veterans Interactive, an organisation that provides housing options and support for veterans and their families. The special will air on BET on February 24.
