An up and coming designer trend for the Spring/Summer 2012 season is the mermaid, fishtail style gowns. Whether it be as a wedding gown, or for an important, elegant event such as the recent Golden Globes, the mermaid gown is sexy and flattering, yet always elegant and chic.
Celebrities also love the mermaid style gowns. Sophia Vergara sports the trend to just about every up scale event. Sophia donned the mermaid gown for the Golden Globes in this navy blue Vera Wang number. Reese Witherspoon showed off the trend at the Golden Globes as well, but opted for Zac Posen’s red mermaid style gown.
The best thing about the mermaid, fishtail gown is that it hugs women in all the right places! Mermaid gowns create sexy curves by hugging the upper half, which accentuates the small waist and curvaceous, sexy, womanly hips. Even if you have a straight, slim figure, the mermaid, fishtail gown creates sexy curves. Adding a plunge can also add some sex appeal, but the fishtail bottom portion helps maintain the elegant appeal as well.
