Mariah Carey Rides the NYC Subway in Glitzy Gown: Hilarious Pictures
One Sweet Day, Mariah Carey decided to ride the subway! The Elusive Chanteuse posted several photos of herself Friday, May 30, riding public transportation in New York City while wearing (what else?) a glitzy gown.
"Glimpses of our joyride on the 1 train," Carey captioned the pic of her smiling while seated on a train. "#subwayincouture." In the photo, the diva wears a sparkly pale-blue floor-length number by Atelier Versace, featuring a mega-high slit and low-cut bodice. The glaring lights of the subway were apparently too much for the singer to handle, because she's pictured wearing shades while riding underground. See more pics of Mariah's glam looks here.
The Grammy winner, clearly enjoying her NYC subway experience, shared another pic of herself flanked by two suit and tie-clad pals. "Laughs pon de subway," she wrote alongside the image, which included producer Jermaine Dupri and BET Music Programming President Stephen Hill.
The photo, also shared by Dupri and Hill, revealed that there may have been some confusion among the trio regarding what train they had taken. "So me @stephengranthill and @mariahcarey just step on the D train at 205th," Dupri wrote. Hill added, "So tonight @jwarhol and @mariahcarey and I jumped on the uptown. 1 metro card between us."
Carey also chronicled her big night out via Vine. The singer's account featured clips of her getting out of an NYC "#yellowcab," walking down subway steps to take the 1 train, crossing streets, and staring at heaping piles of garbage.
Prior to hopping on the train, Carey hosted the Fresh Air Fund gala at Chelsea Piers on Thursday, May 29.
