We love us some Mariah Carey here at TGJ. However, there’s no denying that the diva has become renown for wearing little in recent years.
It’s refreshing, then, to see her taking on new visual inspiration – even if only for a themed shoot.
Mimi, along with other notable names such as Katy Perry and Oprah Winfrey, appear in the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine for a unique Icons feature.
Snapped by Jean Paul Goude and directed by Carine Roitfeld, the concept sees today’s Icons (not sure about Katy Perry, but we digress) transformed into legends from history.
For 45 year old Mariah, the muse was was French queen Marie Antoinette.
Speaking on the shoot, the singer said:
“I’m pretty much the opposite of Marie Antoinette, but it’s always fun to throw on a costume.”
