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 doesn’t love fingerless gloves, she just hates the aging of her hands. eventually she’ll be wearing scarves and chokers too, to hide her neck.

Being a bit insensitive? It’s medical. Do you not remember her hurting her arm on the movie set? Come on, guys.

I had seen this going on. I thought one of her hands was injured. You know, at her age with arthritis and all.

Stupid gloves

What do you mean “At her age”? Nick is into fashion design. He has a line socks and ties. He is making a line of finger-less gloves. She likes them and is supporting his efforts. Her hands are beautiful.
