Three days after it was officially confirmed Mariah Carey season, the 52-year-old “Hero” singer rocked a little black dress in New York City on Nov. 4. While holding hands with her boyfriend, Bryan Tanaka, 39, Mimi smiled from ear to ear as she looked as beautiful as ever in the cocktail dress. The pop diva paired the ensemble with a black leather trench coat, open-toe platform heels, a black belt and oversized sunglasses. Of course, Mariah didn’t forget to accessorize as she made sure to complete the look with a pair of dangling earrings. Her long blonde tresses were also styled in chic loose beachy waves and parted in the middle.
While the star strutted in her monochromatic outfit, Bryan opted for a much more casual look. The 39-year-old looked like he was a devoted boyfriend and a Mariah fan himself as he wore a white t-shirt with the singer on it. Additionally, he wore a black army jacket with leather sleeves, black ripped jeans and Air Jordan sneakers as he accompanied his lady in the Big Apple on Friday.
The NYC outing comes just three days after Mariah took to Instagram to share a beautiful video to declare that it’s officially the Mariah holiday season. Her Halloween-to-Christmas video shows the Grammy winner wearing a witch costume and riding a bike while laughing a cackling witch. The video then quickly transitions to Mimi wearing a sexy Santa outfit and singing “it’s time,” which alludes to the time of year when her song “All I Want For Christmas Is You” can be heard almost everywhere. “IT’S AWESOME!!!!!!!! #MariahSZN,” she captioned the post.
Mariah and Bryan were also spotted in NYC last week holding hands as they toured the Enola Holmes 2 premieres on October 28. During that outing, Mimi stunned again in a black cocktail dress, but this time she paired the outfit with sheer tights. She completed her look with black platform heels, a leather belt and black sunglasses. Bryan made sure to give Mariah a helping hand as she slipped down the building’s stairs that night.
The iconic pop star and her beau have been dating since 2016, following her split from the Australian billionaire James Packer. Bryan and the blonde beauty met when he was working as a backup dancer on her show, and soon sparks flew. He occasionally posts pictures of Mariah on his Instagram, also on Valentine’s Day this year. Mariah was previously married to singer and TV host Nick Cannon42, from 2008 until their divorce in 2016. The famous recording artist and Nick welcomed twins during their marriage in 2011. Their beautiful children include Moroccan and Monroe11.
