@mariahcarey / Instagram

There is just no denying that Mariah Carey is the undisputed queen of Christmas. She has the smash hit Christmas song “All I Want For Christmas Is You” that you’ve already listened for years. She’s always in the Christmas spirit regardless of the time of year. Here is how the most fierce diva has owned the festive holiday for decades.

First, Mariah Carey has her own Christmas package that you can buy for yourself…or your loved one. Whatever.

According to the website, the Christmas package comes with a Mariah Carey 10-inch vinyl picture disc, a “Mariah Carey Merry Christmas” CD (yes, a physical CD), a Mariah Carey cartoon reindeer shirt, a Mariah Carey “All I Want For Christmas Is You” shirt (that’s right, two shirts) and a hand written letter from Mariah Carey.

*updates Christmas list*

She performs her hit song “All I Want For Christmas Is You” all year long.


What even is Thanksgiving?

No, seriously.


Tbh, we all listen to it all year long anyway so it’s our fault.

She’s even turned it into a kids book because why not.


All her little lambies can now have Christmas 24/7/365.

Even her Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade float was Christmas themed.

Happy Thanksgiving! #AIWFCIY #macysparade ???

Legit, Santa Claus is her best friend.

After Seeing Hat Prices, This Mexican Milliner Wanted To Make Them Affordable

After Seeing Hat Prices, This Mexican Milliner Wanted To Make Them Affordable

You might not know Gladys Tamez… but you’ve definitely seen her hats. The Mexican-born, L.A.-based hat designer has fitted the heads of several big names in the entertainment industry.

Gladys Tamez is the milliner (hat maker) to the stars.


You’ve seen her hats on Jennifer Lopez…


… Alicia Keys…


… Kylie Jenner…


… Kate Del Castillo…


…and, most famously, Lady Gaga.


“Gaga told me she loves pink,” Tamez told PeopleStyle. “I brought several samples, several designs and we agreed to have one, and then two and then more and more.”

Like, Lady Gaga might be obsessed with Tamez’s hats.


The L.A.-based fashion powerhouse is a proud Mexicana.


Tamez was born and raised in Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico and her home country still holds a very special place in her heart.

“I grew up in and around the ‘fiesta brava’ in Mexico, and that pageantry, drama and regalia had a huge influence on me,” Tamez told Divine Living. “I’m very proud to have just started selling my hats at the boutique LOL Tulum and for all the recognition I’ve gotten in Mexico. Mexico is magic, tragic and yet full of hope and positivity. My homeland and its diverse cultures continue to inspire and inform my designs.”

Tamez has incorporated her love of mysticism in one of her most successful collections: Zodiac.

"Zodiac Collection" This Collection was inspired by the Zodiac. The 12 Zodiac symbols are derived from the suns travels through the constellations. Each hats design is derived by the characteristics represented by each Zodiac and how astrological and cosmological complexity is matched only by the inner life of sentient life on earth. The 12 designs are symbols of our primal nature and the universal desires of health, fortune and love. The Zodiac speaks to all our loves, hopes, dreams as well as our flaws, quirks and habits both good and bad. With the Zodiac all of us are drawn to and fro like tides by the power of the universe and the inescapable physics of this life on earth. #TheZodiacCollection #GladysTamezMillinery We will be displaying the 12 signs over the next 12 days. There will be 1 winner who follows all 12 days that will win their sign or a sign for a friend at the end. Stay tuned!

“I’m a mystic; I believe in signs. For two years I’ve been thinking about how to incorporate the zodiac sign in a collection,” Tamez told Racked LA about her Zodiac collection. “Each hat features the lines of a different zodiac sign. I used the zodiac colors, too, but styles also come in black. The collection is doing very well. I’m so happy about that.”

For Tamez, a hat is more than just the latest must-have accessory, it is a physical manifestation of one’s inner being.


“A hat can say everything,” Tamez told Los Angeles Magazine. “A hat can say if you’re fun, if you’re risky, if you are mysterious.  If you have questions about someone, their hat will tell you [the answers].”

But the person wearing the hat also has the power to transform how the hat is perceived.


“I also love to see how people transform and represent a hat,” Tamez told Los Angeles Magazine. “Sometimes, when I create a hat I have a vision of how it should look on a person, but then someone will wear it and transform the hat so beautifully, in ways I wouldn’t have thought of.”

But, most importantly, Tamez wanted to make a hat line that people afford which is evident in her pricing.

“After seeing Saint Laurent’s extra-wide brim hat going for $1,400, we wanted to create an iconic collection at a price point that people could afford,” Tamez, who has hats available for less that $300, told Racked LA. “Of course, some of our hats do go up to $3,000, but you’re paying for quality.”
