If there’s one woman who knows the value of a silver lining, it’s Mariah Carey. Instead of wallowing in the discomfort of misfortune, MC sure knows how to make an asset out of misery. Having dislocated her shoulder while filming a music video for the remix of ‘Beautiful,’ the singer reportedly ‘slumped’ and needed a hospital visit to set the joint right.
But with this being Mariah Carey, the injury proved no impediment to her fabulousness, as she trooped on to make her way back to the shoot the very same day. Since she has been making her mishap quite the blessing by kitting out her razzle dazzle outfits with all manner of ritzy slings.
For her performance at a Hurricane Sandy relief concert last Saturday in New York, Mariah managed to wow with not one, but three patent-pending Bling Slings. First up Mariah rocked a silver jewel embellished white sling which clashed strikingly with her white bejewelled gown. She then switched her luxe sling up to show off a white fur style, bringing an old school Hollywood look to the dress. Finally Mariah went for a full-on costume change, going for a black midi length dress, accessorised of course with a complementary black feathered sling.

We can only congratulate Mariah on her bling sling genius – and thank her for reminding us that for the true divas, the show does indeed go on, albeit with more crystals, fur and feathers involved. Get Better soon Mariah!
