Dazzling Mariah Carey steals the BET show in tummy-baring crop top and skirt

She may have been attending an awards show among a slew of younger pretenders.

But at the age of 43, Mariah Carey still managed to out-dazzle them all in a stunning black crop top and long black and gold patterned skirt as she stepped out at a BET awards bash on Saturday night.

Coordinating with her stunning look, Mariah styled her voluminous honey locks into bouncy waves and sported a pair of dangling gold earrings as she spoke onstage at the New Jersey Performing Arts Centre

She also emphasized her big brown eyes with dramatic make-up, which was complimented with a nude pout.
Despite being one of the world's biggest megastars, Mariah will forever be in awe of renowned Grammy winner LaBelle.

'Still backstage waiting... Hey..I would wait forever for the incredible Patti LaBelle #BlackGirlsRock,' the mother-of-two tweeted, as she bared her toned midriff in a snapshot taken behind-the-scenes of BET's Black Girls Rock show in Newark.

Once she arrived on stage, Mariah certainly appeared to be relishing every second she had alongside the legendary 69-year-old soul artist.

The two were seen sharing a hearty laugh, and the wife of Nick Cannon honoured Patti with the Living Legend gong.

Contrasting with the One Sweet Day songstress, Patti was clad in an embroidered silver jacket over a grey blouse and matching trousers, which were spruced up with a pair of neon yellow pumps.
