Mariah Carey's BET Cleavage Busting Dress - Was It A Step Too Far?

Singer wore a very revealing dress

Mariah Carey stole the show at the BET Honours in Washington D.C. on Saturday night in a gravity defying cleavage flashing black gown. The 43 year-old debut her new track 'You're Mine' on the show - but we doubt anyone noticed over the amount of flesh that was on show from the We Belong Together star.

Mariah was amongst a number of performers who took to the stage including Ludacris, Janelle Monae and Jennifer Hudson on a night where Mowtown royalty including Aretha Franklin and Berry Gordy were being honoured.

In fact, we're guessing that audiences spent the bulk of the performance guessing how Mariah managed to keep her boobs from spilling out of her corseted dress and hold all of those high notes at the same time.

Mariah finished her look with a set of black gloves and combed her honey-toned tresses in a set of tumbling waves. We bet Nick was firmly glued to his wife's dress on the night.

But was her boob baring antics too much? It appears award ceremonies are keen to eliminate the flesh as stars become more daring when it comes to their red carpet outfits. Last year at the Grammy Awards CBS issued a no nudity "wardrobe advisory" for artists to avoid any nipple slips.

It seems when it came to the fans, they couldn't get enough of Carey's assets.

It seems the cleavage could be the finest out there in celebworld with one fan adding:

We all know that Mariah is proud of her pair and even tweeted a pic of her cleavage to hubbie Nick Cannon on his birthday last October.
