Mariah Carey Brings Barbiecore to Aspen In a Fuzzy Hot Pink Coat

Mariah Carey took a cue from everyone’s favorite doll on Friday, stepping out in a hot pink number for her latest luxury après-ski ‘fit.

Looking straight out of the Mattel toy’s wardrobe, Carey was photographed during a Prada shopping trip in Aspen, Colorado, beaming in a furry hot pink jacket that featured a dramatic collar and sleeves, black trim around the zipper and pockets, and silver hardware. She let the fabulous vibrant outerwear shine by pairing it with black accents, including leggings, fuzzy Chanel earmuffs, oversized Chanel sunglasses, and gorgeous knee-high leather boots that featured a sleek pointed-toe and a towering stiletto heel.

The “All I Want for Christmas Is You” hitmaker was photographed returning to the shops for more retail therapy the next day, this time stopping into Gucci. Her look for the outing is going straight onto our winter style mood boards, as she gorgeously embodied cozy elegance in a beige floor-length sweater dress that featured a slouchy turtleneck, side slit, and cable knit design. The split in her warm frock revealed a glamorous pair of shiny leather knee-high platform boots that featured a lace up construction and tall block heel. Carey bundled up further in black leather gloves and fluffy beige earmuffs, and added her signature oversized black shield shades. As for hair and makeup, the singer wore a glossy pink lip and, once again, delightfully showcased the return of her tight natural curls, reminiscent of her classic 90s look.


Carey first displayed her nostalgic ‘do on Wednesday during yet another shopping excursion in Aspen. The Queen of Winter kept warm but ever-stylish in a form-fitting black velour tracksuit with silver sequined stars all over. She added some layers with a shiny Chanel vest, knit leg warmers, and the same lace-up heeled platform boots. Carey upped the ante with some bling in the form of a glittery silver headband and an ultra-luxe diamond-encrusted ruby statement necklace, along with a pair of black oversized shades.

Carey has stepped out in great back-to-back style moments during her annual winter trip to the ski resort, one her ex-boyfriend Bryan Tanaka was noticeably absent from this year. The dancer confirmed their split in an Instagram post on Tuesday.
