It’s only a matter of days after we reported that Mariah Carey is officially pregnant, and yet there’s another news coming from the songstress. Mrs. Cannon is going aboard the celebrity designers bandwagon by the new and lucrative deal with the Home Shopping Network.
Mariah Carey was tapped by HSN Inc.’s CEO, Mindy Grossman and she immediately jumped at the opportunity to develop her own collection of shoes and baubles. As she’s also known for her fragrance collections, Mariah is also looking forward to enhance her fragrance collections in her partnership with HSN.
Although claiming to be a non-wearer when it comes to jewelry, Mariah Carey will come out with a sparkling pavé-set initial pendants and butterfly earrings as key items for her jewelry line. As for other accessories, we’ve always known Mimi is big on boots, so expect nothing less than well-designed fur-trimmed suede boots and quilted nylon boots wrapped in chains. While the jewelry will be available from $39.99 up to $199.90, the shoes will start at a slightly higher price of $69.90 up to $199.95. There will also be a new version of Mariah Carey’s Luscious Pink fragrance and 25 bottles of the Luscious Pink Deluxe Edition fragrance -which will be priced at $275. The bottle will feature a Swarovski Elements-encrusted butterfly with a personal note from Mariah.
Mariah Carey has been an avid web-surfer and a loyal shopper of HSN, especially when her friend, Boyce, is on.
“It’s a classic, you have to keep it on. I do a very good impression of her.”
Well, soon she won’t have to do impressions anymore as Mariah will start selling her own stuff on November 29. Spoken like a true pro, Mimi said she has no pre-show jitters:
“I think it’s just about being yourself, explaining the different products and enjoying yourself. If I take it so seriously, and say, ‘Oh my god, It’s a Shakespearean moment,’ it’s not going to be fun. I am looking at it as something fun. This is an extracurricular activity for me and I am looking forward to it. It’s another creative outlet for me.”
And like a true designer, Mariah designed her line for HSN with the wearers in mind.
“When I don’t have a platform, we could have a traumatic moment, like a semi-spill on stage, which nobody wants. A platform shoe grounds you a little more. I try to make my designs more practical as well as pretty. One of the things I thought about was how I could do affordable, really nice, comfortable shoes that are still flattering to the leg.”
Can’t wait to get your Mariah Carey gear on HSN? Just wait patiently and take a look at what’s to come. From the looks of it, we say Go Mimi!
