It seems The Met Ball goers really did embrace the sea spirit, take a look at Karolina Kurkova. The tightness of this dress with the dropped back is simply jaw dropping. Honestly I have a new style crush. May I just add that not many women can get away with wearing a sequin turban on the red carpet, but in her Rachel Zoe creation she pulls it off perfectly.
Then there was Lea Michele at The Golden Globes wearing a very revealing but totally gorgeous Marchesa fish tail dress. So extremely glamorous.
Finally Evan Rachel Wood in custom-designed Gucci at The Golden Globes (if only I had the money for custom-designed Gucci...) Once again a fish tail cut but this time with a green palette for full on mermaid sparkle.
Of course me being me, I instantly started looking for the high-street copies of this style. Here's a selection of the clothes I found:
Topshop (for day):
I still can't get over how amazing Karolina Kurkova's dress is. Oh my goodness...
On a final note, if you wanted to get your hands on Carey Mulligan's stunner of a dress and have some (okay a lot) of money to spare, it's currently being auctioned on ebay! The highest bid at the moment is $2500, and 100% of the money goes to Oxfam once sold. Awh how lovely.
