There is something effortlessly elegant and dramatic about this style of dress, which makes the A-listers go wild, leaping into this particular sartorial sea time and time again. From Dolce & Gabbana to Topshop (yes, that's right), celebrities have wowed us with beautifully crafted mermaid designs on the red carpet time after time.
