Nothing is getting in the way of fashion for Mariah Carey. Not even a dislocated shoulder.

The diva rocked a stylish arm sling when she attended the star-studded premiere of Lee Daniels’ ‘The Butler’ at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City on Monday, August 5. She appears in the historical drama alongside big names like Oprah Winfrey, Jane Fonda, and Forest Whitaker, who were also present at the event.

The Grammy winner dislocated her shoulder on the set of a music video shoot early last month in New York, hence the sling.

Forget about signing your name on her arm brace because that’s obviously impossible with all its studs. The stylish brace was a leather and stud confection that perfectly matched Carey’s figure-hugging little black dress. A pair of charming bow-embellished lace pumps from Valentino finished her sleek look.

Carey has managed to turn a medical essential into a chic accessory. She even wore several different arm slings that matched her dazzling gowns when she performed during the 2013 Major League Baseball All-Star Charity Concert in Central Park in New York City on July 13.

Thanks to Mariah Carey, nifty arm slings made of leather or lace (or what have you) with studs or diamonds (or any other bling you can think of ) may just be the next big thing in fashion. Excited?

Moving on to the singer’s shoes at Lee Daniels’ ‘The Butler’ premiere, it was a pair of lace couture bow pumps from Valentino that you can find at Barneys New York.

The floral lace and the bow on each vamp make these shoes utterly romantic and feminine. They balanced the rocker feel of the studded sling and gave her entire look some ladylike element.

These peep-toe pumps are also available in red at Neiman Marcus.
