Girls, at one point in  your life you’ve probably wished you were a mermaid.  Us too.  Don’t be ashamed, we’ve all been there, Ariel got everybody wanting a flashy tail and cute seashell bra at one point.  Who could blame us for wanting to have a tail, when grown-up tails look like the ones fluttering around on the red carpet at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival?

From Eva Longoria to Jane Fonda, Diane Kruger to Naomi Watts and Fan Bingbing, the most elegant fishtail gowns crafted by Gucci, Giambattista Valli,  Marchesa, Emilio Pucci and more, left all of us girls wishing we could be a mermaid again. These fashions go way beyond the Disney movie.
