When Maggie Gyllenhaal stepped onto the red carpet at The Met Gala last night, I felt a serious sense of dejá vu. Where oh where had I seen this glittering navy blue, bias cut gown with the scooped neck? I racked my brain like crazy until it came to me… The Little Mermaid.
Obviously, the dress is extremely versatile considering the different occasions and settings in which it has been worn. While Maggie Gyllenhaal struts her Stella McCartney gown all over fashion’s hottest red carpet, Ariel found it appropriate for frolicking in the ocean.
Considering she had just gotten legs, Ariel opted for a mullet dress (short in front, long in back) to show those bad boys off. Maggie opted for a more formal look, keeping the length symmetrical all the way around.
While the dresses were worn a good 19 years apart we have to ask…
Who Wore it Better??
