Back in February, the Oscars red carpet showed off one trend that isn’t for the faint of heart. Melissa George, Beyonce and Vanessa Hudgens are just a few of the names that worked the fishtail dress, and, it should be added, to varying degrees of success.
Beyonce made it a family affair by wearing a House of Dereon floral number, which led to no end of criticism. Melissa George went for a simpler design in a white fishtail dress. And as for Vanessa Hudgens, she wore Marchesa, and while she seemed unable to walk, looked fashionable. And really, isn’t that what counts?
So wear this look with caution. Walk slowly, and keep it simple. No need to look like a fish covered in a bed spread (cough, Beyonce, cough.)
