Mariah gets a makeover...
courtesy of Andre Leon Talley! he's took renee zellweger under his wing and look at her now. i have to say, his first big event with her (oprah's legends ball) wasn't a good look for her...

Quote:
MARIAH Carey, who is regularly mocked for her got-it-flaunt-it fashion sense, is getting a style makeover from her new best friend — Vogue editor-at-large Andre Leon Talley. Pals of Carey's are hoping Talley can do what he did for Melania Trump and turn her into a style icon, possibly landing her on the cover of Vogue, as Melania was when she married Donald Trump.

Talley escorted Carey to Karl Lagerfeld's dinner at Matsuri last week, took her to Oprah Winfrey's celebration of African-American legends over the weekend near Santa Barbara, and hung out with the songbird yesterday in L.A.

According to Carey's rep and pal Marvet Britto: "I introduced them two months ago because Mariah needed guidance. She has an incredible sense of style — but then she went out in outfits like cutoff shorts and tank tops. It was her old team of people telling her to wear that.

"Mariah always said she would love Andre's guidance and wisdom, and when I called him to help her, he was thrilled and said, 'I would be honored!' "

"Andre is there to help Mariah's broken relationships with fashion houses. No one wanted to lend clothes to her because when she wore them the clothes would be different — shorter or not worn right — and it wouldn't complete their vision of the clothing . . .

"We don't want people to say things like 'skanky' . . . But that is changing . . ."

And how! For the big Winfrey weekend bash at the TV superstar's Montecito home, Talley got couturier Alexander McQueen to make Carey a one-of-a-kind dress.
wasn't that "one of a kind dress" the same one melania trump wore to the met gala?

and i hope this doesn't mean mariah will be on the cover of vogue anytime soon

She has a very natural curve to her body, and I've always beleived that she has drapped it far too wrong. Although I wasn't a fan of the Alexander McQueen on her, it is a start to a better wardrobe for her.

Good for her. Though I find Andre's tastes pretty awfull too, but it can't be worse than Mariah's.

It's also strikingly similar to what Renee wore to the Oscars, although, I think this is Herrera (*shocking!*). Did he style her for that, too? Perhaps someone is lacking a bit of imagination lately...

Well I sure hope he can do better than that horrid McQueen gown she wore to Oprah's Ball. Can't wait to see her in something decent.

That McQueen dress was the makeover? That was horrible! She was one of the worst dressed people there.

I guess makeover means dressing her up in less-known, less-bare, and less flashy chothes...I wouldn't be surprised if he puts her in Lanvin or Rochas for future events

Is this like Cher's Farewell Tours? It keeps happening and happening?

Agreed.

I think Andre Leon has no tastes whatsoever. All he cares about are flashy big names.

I saw her in New York Magazine... there was a bit about her going apartment shopping and promoting her album.. they had a picture of her in a very subdued housewife type outfit.. I actually thought she looked good for once.

Agree on the Mcqueen though.. does not look right on her at all.

Would that be such a bad thing though?

I wish she would just get a breast reduction. They aren't even nice for a Playboy model. They're baloons. I wish she'd get them reduced and then die her hair darker and then let it get curlier and then stop parting it in the middle and then quit fake-tanning and then... yknow... take it from there. I mean, you can throw nice clothes on anybody. I don't think the main problem with Mariah is the clothes. Its the Mariah.
