Duffy Covers Mariah Carey In a Dazzling Dress

Well, well, well it seems Duffy is back with the same award winning voice but a sexier look.

The petite Welsh singer embraced her feminine side with a classic black dress with white sequin embellishment at Capital Radio’s Jingle Bell Ball at the 02.

When she wore it to do interviews before the show, the award winning artist seemed quite sweet and innocent. But then she opened her mouth on stage and out came the hottest cover of Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas that we’ve heard in ages…Give us Mercy, Duffy, it was too good!

Backstage at the O2, Duffy explained how all she wanted for Christmas was a happy day with her Welsh rugby star boyfriend Mike Phillips.

“I wrote my album Endlessly when I was dreaming of meeting someone,” she revealed. “I genuinely wanted someone to put their arms around me.

“I knew I was missing something in my life – then I met Mike and knew he was the one from our first date.”

However, when asked if marriage was on the cards, she blushed and said: “That’s up to Mike. I’m a real traditionalist and so is he so I’ll wait to be asked.”

We take that as a hint to Mike then – Duffy’s ready for you to put a ring on it.

The singer, whose first album Rockferry was the best selling album of 2008 and won a Brit and a Grammy, has had a slower start music-wise this time around.

Her single Well,Well, Well entered the charts at 41 last week and the album Endlessly is currently at number nine.

However, the main thing is that Duffy has one area of her life sorted – her gorgeous boyfriend – and awards and chart numbers won’t keep you warm in bed at night.

The Love Label embellished dress shines out more subtly with black sequins so you look cool and in control when people notice you and can’t quite work out why

You can also add a chunky necklace to draw people’s eyes to your top half. Try the gorgeous French Connection multi beaded chain necklace

We look forward to seeing more of Duffy in 2011 and wish her all the best with the next single.
