Your average frequent flyer may have already got the tip to dress down for cross-continental jaunts.

But then again, Mariah Carey has never been just average.

The 42-year-old was keen to show off her curves as she jet to an airport in New York tonight, wearing a fitted floor-length dress, sky-high stilettos and oversized sunglasses for her flight to Tokyo.

The singer wore her hair was also perfectly coiffed and curled around her shoulders, and a full face of make-up as she arrived to JFK headed to Japan.

 

Mariah topped her look off with a cropped leather jacket, and accessorised her ruffled ensemble with drop earrings, a cocktail ring and a long feather necklace that draped over her bust.

Well, hello there: The singer flashed a smile and blew kisses to fans

Clutching her smartphone in hand, she lifted not a finger for a piece of baggage, presumably taken care of by her assistants.

The singer is coming off a high-energy performance in New York on Wednesday night, which saw her belt out her new single Triumphant (Get 'Em) at the NFL Opening Kickoff event at Rockefeller Center.

While Cee-Lo Green earlier took to the stage on a throne, Mariah showed waited one minute and 30 seconds into the track before showing up - a black and white video with the words 'fashionably late' flashing behind her.

Just beaming: Mariah, 42, clutched her smartphone in hand - but certainly didn't set finger on a bag

As the doors opened, the star made her entrance in a dazzling gold mini dress with a train and matching wrap, which blew back as she was hit with a row of wind machines.

Of course, the ensemble was only the first for Mariah, who treated fans to a rendition of Touch My Body and flaunted her figure in a sequined black frock teamed with glittering peep toe pumps.

The Always Be My Baby star wasn’t the only one to sing at the ceremony. Rockers No Doubt were also on hand.

Gwen Stefani showed off her toned abs in a black sports bra and checked trousers, which she teamed with leather boots, as the newly reunited band performed their comeback single Settle Down.

Does Aretha still look like she did in the 60's? No! Does Cher still look like she did in the 70's? No! GROW UP FOOL!!! Mariah has...

@ - Roseanne Barr , Hawaii, 07/9/2012 13:32 - You have 101 flashing cameras up in your face and see how you like it. Why do you think stars always wear shades at night? So they can see where they are going and to dim the flashing light bulbs, you DIMWIT!!!! And DM, Mariah was not on her way to Tokyo, she was on her way to Los Angeles to an award show where is in the honoree. I think she looks fantastic!!!! Probably ten times better than you halfwits that have nothing nice to say about anything - LOOK IN THE MIRROR!!!!!!!
