Under the sea! We are currently in the thick of all things The Little Mermaid as we celebrate the global premiere of the highly anticipated live-action film this weekend. We’ve seen all the trailers and teasers and heard the tear-jerking live rendition of Part of Your World, and seen our newly crowned Ariel, Halle Bailey, own the red carpet (well, blue) at the LA premiere looking every bit of mermaid chic — and we just can’t get enough. As she continues to promote the film, that means more red carpets, premieres, talk show appearances, and events, which all equal more fashion.
We love when actors and their stylists take the assignment seriously and commit to echoing the movie’s themes (see; Zendaya for Dune or Spiderman). For Halle’s The Little Mermaid press run, we expect nothing but mermaid-core. We won’t bother you with explaining all the ins and outs of the core (just search on TikTok), but we just mean we want to live the full aquatic fantasy; shell motifs, netting, sequins, iridescent, blue, flowy, etc. As we’ve seen at this year’s Oscars and the LA premiere, Halle is spearheading this trend. So, just for fun, we’ve curated a few looks from recent shows and seasons that we would love to see Halle in.
As we celebrate the theatrical release of the highly anticipated film this weekend. Let’s get into the mermaid fashion fantasy below.
