See Why Mariah Carey Never Ever Dresses Down

She's obviously allergic.

Published January 10, 2017

Mariah Carey is not exactly known for being casual. She’s the ultimate diva and is accordingly constantly dressed in a gown. For example, yesterday she wore a black evening gown during the day to go shopping in Beverly Hills. And that was the least of it — Rodeo Drive is already pretty luxe. Mimi has worn gowns to locations where even sweats would suffice, like airplanes, the subway and, most excellently, a Colorado weed dispensary.

“Great gowns, beautiful gowns” may have been Aretha Franklin’s shade toward Taylor Swift, but it truly only applies to Mariah. Scroll on for "Mariah Carey Overdressing for Normal Occasions: A History."

  1. Shopping in Beverly Hills

    All I want for Christmas is shoes.

  2. Buying Weed in Colorado

    The elusive chanteuse’s epic journey to a Colorado weed dispensary is definitely the very best thing that has happened in 2017. May we all wear mermaid-style gowns to get a little legal high.

  3. Flying To Finland

    You think Mariah would fly to Helsinki in anything less than a bright red, floor-length gown? Of course she wouldn’t. Comfort is for plebeians. 

    ✨Thank You Zetta jet for taking such good care of me! Off to Helsinki ✈️

  4. Riding the Subway

    Seeing Mariah Carey on public transit is extremely odd, like trying to watch a dog walk on its hind legs. She belongs with a chauffeur! But of course she still made it glam with a sequined gown. Although we’d bet big money on the fact that she burned it after it made contact with a train seat.

  5. Playing in the Park

    Because toddlers won’t destroy a white gown — at least not if you have an army of nannies.

    Sinking into the rubber mats...lol

  6. Halloween with dem babies

    Nick and Moroccan wore Mario and Luigi outfits. Monroe was presumably some kind of Disney princess. And Mariah? She decided to wear a bright red latex gown. Truly inspiring.

    Holiday times 😘

  7. A Helicopter Ride

    There were diamonds too, natch.

    Chopping it up 😉

  8. Playing With Her Kids

    One should only entertain children when dressed for a gala.

    Lamb squad.

    Never change, Mariah. Well, change your gowns. But not anything else.
