Mariah Carey’s arm may be hurting, but her sling options are certainly not. As we already know, Mariah dislocated her shoulder in July, and rather than letting it get her down, she’s incorporated it into her look big time. Earlier this summer, at the 2013 Major League Baseball All-Star Charity Concert, Mimi decked her sling out in white fur, teal feathers, and sparkly rhinestones. Obviously, those three were merely MC’s performance slings, and last night, we were treated to a look at her movie promotion collection.
Mariah, as we all know, periodically spreads her wings (or singular wing, temporarily) and forays into acting; she’s done it again, this time snagging a role in Lee Daniels’ The Butler. At yesterday’s premiere and press conference, Mimi debuted not one, but two, brand new slings. The first was black lace, and Mariah shared the look with her followers on Twitter and Instagram, with the caption, “On my way to see Lee Daniels at the press conference for The Butler.” For the premiere, MC kept the same black, tight, Tom Ford short-sleeved dress with lace bow Valentino stilettos, but obviously couldn’t be seen in the same sling, so she switched a much edgier one: silver studded, with a shiny black sleeve.
Mariah Carey and Jane Fonda show off their slings.
Mimi is not alone in her suffering—she just posted a photo on Instagram with Jane Fonda, a fellow cast member with an arm problem. Hopefully Jane will follow Mariah’s lead and switch from boring, plain purple and add some bling to her sling.
