MARIAH CAREY GETS REVEALING

Mariah Carey is famous for loving "moments." It could be a "butterfly moment." Or a "hot tub moment." But right now, it's a "Las Vegas moment." The sexy superstar just wrapped up Mariah: #1 to Infinity, her first-ever Vegas residency, where she performed all 18 of her #1 hits at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Fans who didn't catch Mimi's Vegas show will get another chance in December when she returns to the Colosseum for All I Want for Christmas Is You, a holiday concert series that, yes, will be sure to feature that iconic, titular hit. (For those unable to head out West for the holidays, you can also catch Mariah's Christmas shows at New York's Beacon Theatre.) On top of these performances, the pop star has her hands in two film projects: the first, All I Want For Christmas Is You, is an animated movie based on her holiday hit and out this November and the second, The Star, is another animated feature out the same month in which she wrote the film's titular song. 

At our cover shoot, Carey's outfits channel the glittery, over-the-top extravagance of her new city. "I think this is kind of a fairy princess moment," she says of one sparkly gold tulle gown. "And I took off my shoes to be very Cinderella," she adds. "Although I don't know that Cinderella went as plunging in the neckline." So, an adult, glamorous Cinderella? "Adult, glamorous...yeah, I guess so," she says. "If I have to be an adult, sure."
