Mariah Carey wore a head-turning outfit on Thursday, as she lead stars at the third annual Recording Academy Honors in Los Angeles.

The We Belong Together hitmaker, 54, slipped her hourglass curves into a bizarre racy ensemble that featured a cream corset wrapped around with a sheer caramel tulle booty bustle. 

The eye-popping outfit boasted a plunging neckline that showed off her ample cleavage, and completely transparent bottom that put her toned legs on display. 

The pop diva wore her golden tresses tumbling down in polished curls, and sparkled with a number of diamond accents. 

The event — presented by The Black Music Collective at Fairmont Century Plaza — is one of a number taking place during Grammy Week. Mariah will be awarded with the Global Impact Award, alongside Lenny Kravitz.

As for glam, she looked picture-perfect as always in smokey eye makeup, blush and nude lipstick.

The Global Impact Award is a CEO Merit Award that recognizes Black music creators whose ‘dedication to the art form has greatly influenced the industry,’ the Recording Academy stated in a press release. 

The Honorees are recognized for their ‘inspirational legacy of service and celebrated for the myriad ways recipients’ leadership and passion has empowered others to embrace authenticity and contribute to positive change.’

Last year, the award was presented to Missy Elliott, Dr. Dre, Lil Wayne, and Epic Records CEO Sylvia Rhone.

Though Mariah is not nominated at the main event this year, she has won five Grammy Awards, including best new artist in 1991 and best female vocal performance, over the course of her career. 

Tori Kelly, 31, was also in attendance on Thursday, and opted for a stylish business chic look in a grey vest and pants over a white button up.

She completed the look with a black tie, and wore her brunette tresses in voluminous curls.
