Mariah, like so many songstresses (do people still use that word?) this weekend, had herself quite the little parade of fashion moments as she cycled through the Grammys red carpet tour.

This is great. It’s completely on brand for her, but it feels like a slightly freshened up take on her glittery, sexy, cutout-heavy style. It’s not pushing any envelopes and it’s not all that far off from her usual, but her hair and makeup look great, the dress looks easy and flattering on her, and we can’t find a thing to fault here.

IN LAURA BASCI COUTURE AT THE GRAMMY AWARDS
