Carey added that it wasn’t just the weight of the dress that provided a challenge, but also the tightness of it: “When something’s super tight in the middle area, it’s hard because you have to get your breath and sing,” she said. “But I’m used to that.”
“She was a trooper,” said Tristan to Insider. “She did take after take.”
Carey has become synonymous with the holiday season thanks to her Christmas-themed album, “Merry Christmas”. This special was a celebration of her connection to the holiday and it was important to herself and Tristan that they appropriately be vintage-inspired, much like her album.
“It went with the backdrop of New York and the Chrysler Building. It has a bronze, gold, copper feel that’s very festive, but not in your face,” Carey told Vogue.
