The Daily Grind Video

Mariah Carey, with her blinged-out cast, Nick Cannon, Terrence Howard, and Forest Whitaker were a few of the first to hit the red carpet for the New York premiere of Lee Daniels’ The Butler at the Ziegfeld Theater on Monday. Mariah stole the spotlight in a Tom Ford dress with Valentino shoes, and of course, her stylish arm sling.

It was truly a star studded event, where every celebrity who hit the red carpet looked stunning. Someone rocked a fro just right, took smoking hot to a new level in a tight red dress, and proved she gets hotter as she grows out of her childhood image.
