Yes, Mariah Carey just wore a gown while sitting in a pool, and no, we're not kidding! To celebrate the anniversary of her hit album "The Emancipation of Mimi" — which was released back in 2005 — and the success of the remix for "Big Energy" with Latto and DJ Khaled, Carey decided to host an Instagram Live. The singer soaked up these achievements (literally) while casually posing on the stairs of a pool, clad in a striking Tom Ford design covered in sequins. Rather than slipping into a swimsuit, Carey decided to wear an elegant full-length gown, because why not? We'd expect nothing less than full glam from the singer, and she certainly delivered. Carey later posted the full video of herself with the caption, "IG Live!!!! Celebrating The Emancipation of Mimi and Big Energy Remix with the lambily!!! 🐑🐑🐑❤️❤️❤️" (The Lambs are what Carey calls her superfans, in case you weren't aware.) And with that, the icon has set the new rules of pool dressing.
The 53-year-old star's gown featured sequins in deep-burgundy and rose-gold hues throughout, a scooped neckline, and what looked like a mermaid hemline. She completed her outfit with a pair of dangling gold earrings and, of course, a bunch of diamond-encrusted bracelets on each hand. Carey left her hair straight in a middle part and even wore makeup while in the pool. During the live stream, her daughter, Monroe, whom she had with ex-husband Nick Cannon, made an appearance wearing pajamas, a more low-key ensemble than her mother's.
