10 Times Mariah Carey Was Glitter Personified

Twinkle twinkle, big star.

Mariah Carey has rarely shied away from sparkles. She starred in Glitter, after, all—and these days, the singer is even bathing in diamonds! As you get ready for this weekend's premiere of  her docuseries Mariah's World, slip into something Swarovski-inspired and see if you can match these sparkling looks for the books:

1998

Vera Wang helped the singer transform into a golden goddess for VH1 Divas. Admittedly, Mariah's fabulous mane very nearly outshone the dress.

2001

Mariah clung to basic black clothing in her early years. But, this sequinned black gown worn with Farrah-Fawcett-feathery hair hinted at a brighter future.

2003

Our heroine typically adores a floor-length gown. But you can talk Mariah into a two-piece if it's dripping with crystal flair that shakes.

2005

Glitter wasn't considered a blockbuster, but Mariah wasn't afraid to reference the look from her campy film by when performing in pink at an event called Tickled Pink.

2008

Pamella Roland outfitted Mariah in an explosion of silver sequins and crystals.

2012

Did Mariah get the memo that she could be casual at the NFL Kick-Off in 2012? Either way, she reminded everyone that dressed-up is her default, gold is her color, and bold baubles are essential. 

Young design house Pavoni provided the sartorial pomp and circumstance for her appearance at NBC's Christmas tree lighting in New York City's Rockefeller Center. The cute flouncy dress is worthy of an Olympic ice skating performance.

2013

Mariah wasn't going to let the inconvenience of a dislocated shoulder get in her way of good will. She performed at the Major League Baseball All-Star Charity Concert in a sling, which provided a painful but totally chic opportunity to wear more Swarovski.

2015

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, unless you're Mariah and you're showing up to Caesar's Palace in a beaded nude gown with bejeweled bustier.

2016

When you're performing at the Essence Festival in New Orleans, you are expected to spice it up! Mariah gave 'em that and more with a daringly leggy dress and sky-high Christian Louboutin stilettos.
