Diantha Harris, who teaches about color for individuals for the Feng Shui Institute of America and the International Academy of Colour Therapeutics, spoke with The Chicago Sun-Times about Mariah Carey’s red dress worn at the 2005 MTV Movie Awards on June 4th (Photos). “Mariah is obviously sure enough of herself to wear red,” Harris said. “It takes a lot of self esteem, or chutzpah, to wear so much red. She may be trying to assert her power position in the entertainment industry. Or perhaps she is telling us she is a woman who lives passionately… surely her music carries passion with it! Red is a great attention-getter, and we know that celebs always want that. Our eyes are naturally drawn to red. But I would say it is not the best color for her skin and hair. I could see her in a copper shade, which would look better with her coloring. Also, it is more sophisticated than red, more mysterious, less ‘noisy.’ But then, perhaps this is the result she is looking for!”
