Hailey Bieber is offishally the prettiest mermaid in the sea. The model and skin care founder is bringing back mermaidcore in a big way with her latest look, a turquoise minidress Ariel would love.
“And after 🐟🐟🐟,” the model wrote on Instagram. Bieber posed for photographer Tyrell Hampton on a white chair, arching her back and looking over her shoulder. You can see in the last picture that she has to hold her skirt down because this scale-covered garment from Maison Valentino is short. The dress is laced up the back and covered in scale-like paillettes; Bieber accessorized with diamond ear cuffs and dark silk heels. Peep the look here.
Love to see her playing with color! Hailey Bieber is often spotted in a Little Black Dress or another sexy/neutral style when she hits a red carpet, which is fine, but…girl, you are 26! Have fun!
“Lil Mermaid” commented super-stylist Karla Welch, who styled the model. Per a post shared by Welch, Bieber wore the dress to Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s Oscars after-party at Chateau Marmont. This is after she attended the Vanity Fair after-party in YSL. Busy night! (Disney villain vibes a little with this?)
Personally, I would love to see more mermaid-y looks. One of my all-time favorite Oscars dresses is Marion Cotillard’s Jean Paul Gaultier look from 2008, which was absolutely fishtastic. (Even Kendall Jenner couldn’t resist resurrecting this one.)
Also, this number from Cannes in 2021: rainbow fish vibes.
