Mariah Carey is the Queen of sparkle! After showing off her sequinned workout gear, the singer, 54, gave fans a glimpse of her glistening 'swimwear'.

Sending her followers into meltdown, Mariah was immediately inundated with comments. "Anything counts as swimwear for MC, even a blinged out floor length evening gown," quipped fashion designer, Hayden Williams. "Mariah being Mariah," added a fan. Meanwhile, a third noted: "Only the MC swims wearing a luxurious dress." 

Just days before, the mom-of-two had posted an ultra-luxe video from her home gym. Captured working out in a gold sequined gown with heels, the singer poked fun at her 'diva' persona. "I'm Mariah Carey, of course this is my workout ensemble," she said to the camera.

When it comes to fashion, Mariah loves to stand out, and she recently rocked another glitter-soaked outfit for New Year's Eve. Posting a photo from her family celebrations, the 54-year-old opted for a silver, sequinned dress with a round neckline. 

Sporting her natural curls in a half-up-half-down style, Mariah kept her makeup natural and dewy for the occasion, combining a brown smoky eye with a honey-hued blusher and a high-shine pink lip gloss.
