After a lot of anticipation, the live adaptation of The Little Mermaid is finally hitting theaters this month, and Halle Bailey is its shiniest star. The young actress is currently busy promoting this movie, and each red carpet look she delivers during its promo tour is better than the last.

Bailey is serving major mermaidcore vibes during this promo tour, delivering stunning looks inspired by the marine life that would put Ariel herself to shame. From a Valdrin Sahiti gown in LA that perfectly captured the colors of a mermaid’s shimmering tail to a beaded Miss Sohee gown with seashell motifs in London, Bailey’s recent fashion choices are a gift that keeps on giving.

What impressed us the most about her The Little Mermaid press tour is her dedication to fully honor her character. She embraced white and aquamarine tones and opted for outfits with tons of pearly and shell details in an attempt to evoke life under the sea.

It’s not a surprise to see Halle Bailey slay, and her star in the fashion world has slowly been rising even before she started promoting The Little Mermaid. She also brought mermaidcore vibes to the Oscars and the Met Gala this year, and she’s been enjoying her style evolution as much as the rest of us.

“I didn’t have to think about my style before and now it’s a moment in time for me to find out what I like to wear… I’m loving it all, and it’s exciting having designers dress me for all these shoots, red carpets, and premieres. It’s like a real fairy tale,” she told Vogue Arabia.
