Mariah Carey's Love for Fingerless Gloves Reaches a New Level

05/30/2014 at 05:32 PM ET

Kim Kardashian has her bodysuits. Pharrell has his hat. And Mariah Carey has her … fingerless gloves?! Sure, it’s a strange accessory to bring to the red carpet, but the singer’s obsession with gloves continues to evolve. So it’s time to recap.

At the SAG Awards in January, Carey skipped the gown-and-diamonds combo most stars were wearing for a one-shoulder LBD and leather motorcycle-inspired gloves. If her goal was to get people talking, she certainly achieved it. Next, she went for a more casual pair of knit black mitts that let her red mani shine and coordinated with her low-cut black dress at an MTV event in February.

But the most recent chapter in the “Mariah Carey Fingerless Gloves” saga is definitely the most interesting (and makes us wish we could get a look inside her accessories closet). Carey wore a pair of silver stunners that perfectly matched her metallic nails for the Fresh Air Fund gala in downtown Manhattan Thursday, to which she took the subway. And though we suppose they could have been a germ-prevention measure on the grimy N.Y.C. subway, we’re pretty sure these were a purely style-based decision.

So we have to ask: What do you think of Mimi’s favorite trend? Do you rock fingerless gloves? Will you now? Sound off below.

She has become so odd.

This girl really needs to embrace getting older. I wish she would realize what an imbecile she looks like. Someone who isn’t on her payroll (lol) needs to tell her to stop dressing like a 20 year old. So sad. LOL.

She looks ridiculous. Has for several years now. Stop dressing that chunky bod like it belongs to a 20-year-old, Meems.

I am convinced she has a skin condition she’s been rocking gloves on both bands for months now not at all related to her shoulder I’m a nurse has nothing to do with both hands….skin condition definitely mark my words!!!

Karen Hill on

I thinks she wears the gloves to cover up her age your hands don’t lie. Plastic surgery for other areas but the hands reveal those age lines.

Charli on

Love Iana’s observation. I think it’s spot on. This trend will not take off.
