Come on Mariah Carey! You know better than this!

If you're going to make a play to one up a fellow diva, you've got to take what she did then go further. Though considering the only thing further than Rihanna's see-through CFDA Awards style would be naked, and we guess the "You're Mine" singer went for the opposite approach. Unfortunately "no bra" trumps "bra" in the rock, paper, scissors of style every single time.

Even though Mimi is far more modest in this sheer black style, there's something oddly tackier about the take. See how the "We On" singer's fur stole, sequined turban and crystal covered netting looks rich and regal, while Mrs. Nick Cannon's busted front, fish tailed skirt and simple fabric looks like a bad drag costume?

We know Mariah's sparking far less controversy on account of far less nipple, but we can't call her 2.0 version of this sexy style the winner. It belongs on a honeymooning bride, after her Vegas wedding.
