There’s so much to love about Mariah Carey. I appreciate that she wears full makeup at all times, I love her devotion to Hello Kitty (hello, she has an entire Hello Kitty room!), and then there’s her obsessive behavior on the red carpet.
In every photo you see of Mimi, you get one, if not all three, of the following elements: the star’s right profile, a dazzling smile, and her left hand fluttering up to play with her hair. When she was asked by US Weekly about her famous only-on-the-right-side photo requirement in 2008, she replied, “I really had specific things that someone told me when I was 19, starting in the business, and I listened to them…. I don’t care anymore.” But I guess old habits die hard. Check out these pictures from throughout her career: Right profile? Check! Dazzling smile! Check! Hand in hair? Check! It’s the Mariah Carey hat trick!
