Mariah Carey doesn’t mind poking a little fun at her diva reputation. The Grammy-winning singer proved she could also be “regular” as she took to the subway in New York City on her way to a Fresh Air Fund gala in her honor. “#subwayincouture,” she wrote as she rode the No. 1 train in Manhattan in a blue glittery ball gown.

In true “Mimi” fashion, every step was documented, from her walk up the steep subway stairs to walking the streets of New York City. She ended her night with a cab ride home.
