On today's Live With Kelly, Mariah Carey wore a teal lingerie set and black fuzzy boudoir slippers. Hey, it's an early call time! Who among us hasn't been tempted to show up to work in something you may or may not have slept in the night before? Kelly and co-host Jussie Smollett, who were also wearing pajamas, were equally concerned with remaining comfy on this holiday weekend.
Carey has been the patron saint of innerwear-as-outerwear since her career kicked off in the 1990s. (The woman has a dedicated lingerie closet, which the world first saw on her episode of MTV Cribs, which was arguably — though not actually up for debate — the best of the entire series.)
Afterward, she most likely went home to make lunch, and didn't even need an outfit change.
