I actually like that one, and the cover - she somehow looks less posey and just IS. I like that.... There's just something in her eyes and her smile that is appealing Obviously, she's showing off her body...it's predictable, but she at least seems genuinely happy these days.

Well I definitely can't say that I am shocked by the majority of the comments. After all it is Mariah and just the mere mentioning of her name brings forth such negativity. Anyways, everyone is entitled to their opinion. As for mine...I like the cover, the accompanying photoshoot and the interview.

Mariah is 38 and looks great. She seems genuinely happy and I'm happy for her. She's never been a Fashionista nor has she ever tried to be and really she doesn't need to do the continuous reinventions since it has been her talent that has made her successful for 18 (+) years not how she poses, what she wears or doesn't wear et cetera. The folks at Elle clearly thought she was worthy of their cover and that is why she is on it.

Is Elle ever going to put a model on the cover? Isn't it supposed to be a fashion magazine?

Ugh this looks like a Cosmopolitan cover, not Elle at all.

I just couldn't help but gasp when the pic showed up. Is this really a fashion magazine??
Putting Mariah Carey on the cover is one thing, but just imagining that they actually thought about that picture, "styled" it and decided to use it as a cover is beyond me.

The cover is a mess. ROFL @ how they airbrushed her eyes in the second one.

But I love the picture with Nick Cannon. You can see the chemistry between the two of them.

With that in mind, what sensible, chic, flesh and blood grown woman would want to aspire to be Mariah Carey?

She's a prime example of how not to grow up gracefully.
I would except a well educated girl wanting to be a strong, healthy, powerful, respected & successful woman rather than some anorexic tabloid-whore junkie, who are on every damn covers nowadays. But maybe that's just me.

I think Mariah is incredibly photogenic and beautiful woman, but she never fits with the fashion magazines because it always comes out looking way to FHM or Maxim, but she seriously is glowing though, its nice to see her this happy.

apparently mariah is very sensitive about being photographed on a certain side of her body...this is why we see her in the same poses.

Miss Dalloway, exactly.
And this is the only problem with this photoshoot. Mariah looks great. Gorgeous body, pretty face. Maybe just not for the ELLE magazine.

I agree with you. Her pictures are nice, but photoshopped. But Mariah fans are used to the photshopping. I for one, have a love-hate relationship with her. I love her voice, her music, but hate (for the most part) how she dresses, poses, etc. But we can only accept her as she is. It seems that she is finally happy and she really deserves happiness after so long.
