The Oscar 2009 Trend: Mermaid Dresses February 23, 2009
When watching the red carpet arrivals at the Academy Awards last night, did you notice how many stars chose mermaid-silhouetted gowns? These are the dresses that are very fitting and then flare out at the bottom, giving you that beautiful hourglass shape.
I think mermaid-style dresses are so stunning and sophisticated. They have that blast-to-the-past vibe…reminds me of soulful songstresses like The Supremes singing into those old-fashioned silver microphones. Take a look at the ladies who mastered the elegance of the mermaid gown Sunday night:
But is the mermaid style practical for prom? Honestly, I don’t recommend it…so hard to dance in! For this reason, I’m giving Miley Cyrus my Best Dressed award. She rode the aquatic-inspired trend with her choice of a silver Zuhair Murad ball gown that had glittery scales. Except, this dress weighed her down a ton! For prom, if you want to stand out, they key is looking for pretty embellishments and a silhouette that will keep you comfortable all night long.
For ideas, check out the Dress Finder and search by “silhouette.” Let me know if you find a dress you fall in love with!Filed under: Tammy's Blog — tammy @ 11:15 am
