Throughout all my years of childhood, there have been few VHS tapes that acquired extra playtime than my copy of The Little Mermaid. As a younger tot (and an grownup, TBH) I used to be completely fascinated and intrigued by the aesthetic of a life beneath the ocean—the colours, shiny mermaid story vibes, massive musical numbers by fish pals. And Elsa Hosk’s NYFW amfAR Gala outfit was the proper instance of how you can carry these dreamy aesthetics into actual life (with out wanting such as you’re only a gal who was obsessive about Ariel from The Little Mermaid). Attaining an excellent mermaid vibe is troublesome, however Elsa Hosk has managed to do it completely. Are we even shocked?
Whereas attending the annual amfAR Gala—which helps AIDS analysis—Elsa Hosk donned essentially the most beautiful metallic Rick Owens costume. Rick Owens, in case you’re not acquainted with the designer, is understood for his wild runways. In case you’ve ever seen aliens mannequin throughout a trend week, it was in all probability whereas carrying Rick Owens’ designs. His seems are at all times edgy and funky, so it comes as no shock that this metallic and mermaid-y dream of a costume is a Rick Owens piece.
Plus, the metallic robe has pockets, which is greater than I can say for almost all of clothes in my closet proper now. I feel Ariel would completely approve of this costume—and perhaps even put on it if she was in her human kind in 2020. Elsa Hosk rocking the costume, although, is sweet sufficient for me. A modern-day mermaid, if you’ll.
After all, you may additionally say that this Rick Owens robe has extra alien vibes than it does mermaid ones, and I might respect the opinion. On a Rick Owens runway, the costume in all probability did look far more extra-terrestrial. On the finish of the day, it’s all as much as interpretation. And isn’t that was trend is lately, anyway?
