Throughout all my years of childhood, there have been few VHS tapes that acquired extra playtime than my copy ofÂ 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 oceanâ€”the colours, shiny mermaid story vibes, massive musical numbers by fish pals. And Elsa Hoskâ€™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 youâ€™re only a gal who was obsessive about Ariel fromÂ The Little Mermaid). Attaining an excellent mermaid vibe is troublesome, however Elsa Hosk has managed to do itÂ completely. Are we even shocked?
Whereas attending the annual amfAR Galaâ€”which helps AIDS analysisâ€”Elsa Hosk donned essentially the most beautiful metallic Rick Owens costume. Rick Owens, in case youâ€™re not acquainted with the designer, is understood for his wild runways. In case youâ€™ve ever seen aliens mannequin throughout a trend week, it was in all probability whereas carrying Rick Owensâ€™ 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 hasÂ 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 costumeâ€”and perhaps evenÂ 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 probabilityÂ did look far more extra-terrestrial. On the finish of the day, itâ€™s all as much as interpretation. And isnâ€™t that was trend is lately, anyway?
