Halle Bailey dressed like another Disney princess for the Oscars
Although she portrayed Ariel in Disney’s live-action version of The Little Mermaid, Halle Bailey dressed like a different princess for the 2023 Oscars. On March 12, the actor and singer appeared on the red carpet in a stunning tulle gown reminiscent of Cinderella’s ball gown. With a corset bodice and sheer panels, the sprawling number came in a gorgeous sea blue, likely a nod to the on-screen mermaid’s turquoise tail.
“I was really excited to wear this beautiful dress to go into the fairy world and give them a princess for a day,” Bailey said in an E! Interview on the red carpet. Leaning into simple accessories, she wore matching blue heels and a statement diamond necklace to make the statement dress stand out. Her stylist, Nichole Goodman, described the starlet’s dress, according to E!
Bailey, who will be presenting an award during the show, was joined by other glamorous stars on the red carpet including Cara Delevingne in a red dress with a slit on one shoulder, Florence Pugh in a unique mullet dress and Ana de Armas, who played Marilyn Monroe in a sparkling white channeled dress.
