On January 13, 2020, in New York City, Mariah Carey graced the premiere of Tyler Perry’s “A Fall From Grace” at Metrograph. Jamie McCarthy captured the moment for Getty Images. At the 2023 Billboard Music Awards, Carey, known as the ‘Queen of Christmas,’ exuded holiday cheer. Attending the prestigious event, the 54-year-old singer struck poses for photographers in a small white dress that bore a striking resemblance to a figure skater’s attire, complete with a silver sparkly edge and fluffy cuffs on the long sleeves.
Complementing her attire, Carey opted for white tights and high knee boots, finishing the ensemble with a playful half-up, half-down hairstyle that highlighted her blonde hair.

Known for her festive style, Carey’s choice of outfit for the Billboard Music Awards, where she was one of the headline acts, didn’t come as a surprise. Anticipation was high as she prepared to perform her beloved holiday hit, “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” at an awards show for the first time. Alongside this performance, Carey is also busy with her holiday tour, “Merry Christmas One and All!,” where she sings a mix of holiday songs like “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town,” “Silent Night,” and “Joy to the World.” Additionally, the Grammy-winning artist includes some of her most popular songs in her repertoire, including “Always Be My Baby,” “Hero,” and “It’s a Wrap.”
However, Carey wasn’t the only high-profile performer at the Billboard Music Awards. The event’s lineup also boasted names like David Guetta, Bebe Rexha, Karol G, NewJeans, Morgan Wallen, Peso Pluma, Stray Kids, and Tate McRae.
