You know you’ve got a reputation as a diva when nobody tells you that you’ve come out without your trousers.
This is what happened to Mariah Carey this week as she attended a Halloween party supposedly dressed as a firefighter.
However, her outfit seemed to comprise of a red bra and knickers set, suspenders and boots, with a token fireman’s jacket thrown in for good measure.
Her husband Nick Cannon, unsurprisingly, seemed pleased as punch with his other half’s choice of costume, although he chose not to bare his bottom and opted for the full ensemble.
The pair rode a fire truck to the party they attended at a New York club, no doubt putting dozens of people who opted for the regulation broomstick and cape to shame.
Meanwhile, the BBC reports that masks of the presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama have been flying off the shelves as costumes for this evening’s night of fright.
Anyone keen to get their hands on a bejewelled bra like Mariah may wish to try lingerieplease.co.uk, where Gossard do a similar one – although we wouldn’t advise wearing it outside, given the recent drop in temperatures.
