November has barely begun, but Mariah Carey makes us feel the holiday spirit already!

Just as she does each year, the self-proclaimed Queen of Christmas has officially kicked off the most festive season of the year, and she did it in style.

For her recent guest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live at El Capitan Theatre on Thursday, the 54-year-old American singer-songwriter made quite the entrance in a dazzling Balmain strapless stretch-crepe mini-dress adorned with black and gold sequins.

Her shimmering outfit featured gold trim that resembled strips of tinsel, elegantly adorning the bust, tracing down the center, and adding a touch of luxury to the hemline.

The dress made her the ultimate showstopper, adorned with decorative gold and onyx buttons, infusing an extra layer of sophistication. Her strapless mini dress is available for $5,790 at Mytheresa.

To complete the glamorous look, Mariah paired her radiant dress with a black cardigan embellished with tiny gold buttons.

But the glamour didn’t stop there. The record producer added a touch of mystery with a pair of black Gucci butterfly sunglasses that concealed her eyes.

To further accentuate her style, Mariah accessorized with a dazzling diamond tennis necklace and stacks of diamond-encrusted bracelets.

She epitomized holiday glamour, her golden blonde tresses cascading down her shoulders.

Mariah reached new heights with a pair of Gucci metallic-finish platform sandals that featured a two-tone design with silver and gold. You can buy them at Farfetch for $1,100.

But Mariah’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live wasn’t just about her remarkable outfit.

During her guest spot on the program, she shared some delightful moments with the late-night talk show host, discussing everything from her penchant for playing prank calls to the enduring magic of her hit, “All I Want for Christmas Is You.”

Amid the episode, viewers were treated to a whimsical spectacle as Mariah orchestrated an epic dance party in Jimmy’s bedroom alongside Santa and a crew of merry elves.

Her festive anthem, “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” echoed through the room via a loudspeaker while artificial snow tossed over his bed.

Jimmy lay comfortably in his bed when Mariah and Santa Claus danced nearby. In his groggy state, Jimmy woke to ask her, “What time is it?” and Mariah declared, “It’s time.”

The 55-year-old TV host and comedian has a recurring tradition of being awakened from sleep by performances from celebrities like Rihanna, Britney Spears, Dua Lipa, Miley Cyrus, and others throughout the years.

In the segment, Jimmy amusingly confessed to Mariah, “I’m like laying there, and I’m like, ‘Something smells good.’ It was you, it turns out.”

Jimmy and Mariah later shared a video of this comical escapade on their Instagram accounts.

Mariah Carey’s week has been nothing short of eventful, as she celebrated the arrival of November and the holiday season on the 1st day of the month.

She shared an Instagram video that captured her being defrosted from a large block of ice by four people dressed in Halloween costumes.

The video also featured her dancing to “All I Want for Christmas Is You” alongside her 12-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan.

Mariah’s excitement was palpable as she captioned the video with “It’s…TIME,” accompanied by the hashtag “MariahSZN.”
