The “One Sweet Day” hit maker wore an embellished gold dress with sheer detailing by Furne One, a Dubai-based designer and the founder of Amato Couture.
For footwear, the “All I Want for Christmas Is You” singer selected soaring sandals. Her shoes of choice? Glittery silver platforms.
While Carey has long been a fan of sky-high shoes for almost any occasion (including athletic activities, such as bowling or running on a treadmill), platforms are an especially popular choice for fall ’19.
The sky-high style is trending in a big way, thanks to high-end designers such as Rick Owens, Gianvito Rossi and Jimmy Choo. Platforms provide a height boost while offering extra stability compared to a stiletto, which can lead to a feeling of empowerment for the wearer. Carey isn’t the only A-lister to hop abroad the platform train. Lady Gaga has long been a fan of statement-making platforms (sometimes with nearly a foot of extra height) and other proponents include Britney Spears, Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba.
