Mariah Carey Created a Christmas Dress That Is Every Bit as Fabulous as You'd Expect

Mariah Carey doesn't care that it's only mid-October; the most lovely season of the year is already in full swing in her New York home.  

While some of us are still clinging to our pumpkin spice lattes and all things Halloween for the time being, Carey is kicking off the holiday season early  

with her favorite seasonal tunes (yes, that includes "All I Want for Christmas Is You"), quality family time,  

and a fresh and festive holiday wardrobe courtesy of her new collaboration with The Children's Place (available now). 

"When The Children's Place first approached me about collaborating and we chatted about who their audience is, 

I knew that we could design and bring their Millennial mom a beautiful, limited-edition piece that is perfect for the holidays, 

Carey says of the brand's latest Holiday Collection, which includes a gown titled "The Dress," designed by the unofficial Queen of Christmas herself. 

"The dress is truly mesmerizing," she adds. "I had an image of elegance... a stunning red ball gown with a lot of volume. 

The strapless fitting bodice of 'The Dress' is carefully fashioned in a deep red velour, and stretches out to a hypnotic, 

full A-line skirt for an iconic silhouette. This limited-edition version features a festive plaid satin trim at the neck
