Mariah Carey shoe line now available at HSN
Nick Cannon is reportedly having a hard time getting his shoe-loving wife, Mariah Carey, to ditch her high heels for flats while she’s pregnant with their first child, so it makes sense that her new line of shoes for HSN has nary a sensible shoe in sight – but who needs practical, right? Mariah’s shoe collection, which made their official debut on HSN November 29th — along with jewelry and fragrance items — definitely exudes her signature style. When I think of her typical style, I usually think of va-va-voom sexy diva or snowbunny Aspen diva, but she always goes all-out either way. I also noticed that she seems to have garnered inspiration for her footwear from some of her own favorite high-end designers. Need more proof of everything I’ve said above? I’ve done a little digging and found some evidence, so let’s check it out:
Mariah is spotted on vaction in Aspen quite often, but she never lets that cold, snowy weather stop her from glamming it up in quilted jackets and plenty of fur. That’s why it’s not surprising to see this Mariah Carey Suede Bootie with Faux Fur in the collection:
This style is on-trend and apparently has been quite popular – it sold out in a mere 6 minutes on HSN according to People and it’s almost sold out online as well. I also noticed it’s very similar to this shoe, the Manolo Blahnik Nesta:
Both shoes feature an asymetrical cut lined with fur, although the Manolos have genuine fur rather than faux and retail for $1,295. They are currently on sale at Nordstrom in grey or camel for a discounted $769.90. The Mariah Carey pair is $129.90 and comes in 3 color options.
Here’s another cold weather style from the line that appears to offer more function than form against the elements, but it’s still decked out in fur, chains and patent detail. This is the Mariah Carey Quilted Boot with Chain Detail in black for $149.90 and it’s the only flat style available in the collection.
Mariah is also well-known for wearing body-baring styles paired with super-high heels. I like the look of her brown Gucci Lockhart boots in the picture on the left, which she wore during a David Letterman apppearance. I couldn’t find them available for sale online, but this style offers a similar look for less:
This is the Mariah Carey Knit Boot with Buckles and Leather Trim and it’s available in black or brown for $149.90.
Of course, what would a Mariah Carey shoe collection be without a super-high platform heel with plenty of bling? You can get that with her Mariah Carey Platform Sandal with Jeweled Stones in rose gold, gold or silver for $149.90.
If you like Mariah’s (somewhat) dressed down look, you might like these boots:
This is the Mariah Carey Suede Platform Peep-Toe Boot in black or rust for $199.90.
Finally, there’s the Mariah Carey Leather Pump Sneaker for $99.90. A sneaker pump may not be for everyone, but I’m sure there are those who can pull off this funky style. It comes in black/red or white/silver.
I’ve seen mixed reviews of the collection, but what do you guys think? Let me know in the comments or on Facebook.
