Mermaid gowns took the red carpet by storm last year, and it seems like whoever didn’t jump on that bandwagon initially is finally coming around to the rocking style now. Mermaid gowns are truly one of the most ethereal silhouettes in contemporary fashion, emphasizing the natural curves of petite women and buxom women, not to mention everything in between.

The celebs attending the 65h Emmy Awards didn’t need to be told twice of the powers of the mermaid gown. Several women sported them, each gorgeous woman in the style that was just perfect for her.

Super-fit Giuliana Rancic went with a strapless blue mermaid gown, the skirt ending in a short train and with a bit of a flouncy feel to it. The silver blue embroidery was enchanting. She looked just right for a modern day fairytale with a happy ending.

The mermaid feel was quite stark in this one, cinched in as it was by a red satin belt on the waist and cinched in yet again just above the knees to create the curve-flattering silhouette. We love the additional pop of color that red cutch brings to the ensemble too.
Nancy O’Dell’s mermaid gown was modern, sharp and very sexy. A beautiful emerald green, it was panelled with black under the bust and on the sides, giving it a bit of an edgy look.

Rocsi Diaz was doing plenty of talking with her strapless outfit. The blue number had a structured and sort of futuristic silhouette with a deep V cut into the neckline and a split down the center starting from just above the knees. It accentuated her figure in all the right places.

Roma Downey’s flesh-toned evening gown had a subtle mermaid silhouette going for it. The silver sequins and embroidery spattered across its length made it quite elegant, which would have been the only vibe it was exuding if it wasn’t for the fully sequinned neckline with a cutout underneath imparting a glamorous feel.
