Arguably her best look from the blue carpet, Bailey donned a lustrous custom gown by Valdrin Sahiti at the film’s Hollywood premiere, with its sleek silhouette and shell bodice reminiscent of a mermaid’s tail. Her look was completed with a shimmery soft glam, and her long locs cascading down her waist.

In conversation with Ebony for her cover story, the star expressed why it was so important for her to show her natural hair in the film, stating, “I’ve had my locs since I was five, so they’re a huge part of who I am. We need to be able to see ourselves, we need to be able to see our hair on big screens like this so that we know that it’s beautiful and more than acceptable.”

At the London premiere, Bailey graced the blue carpet wearing a custom seashell-inspired white gown by Miss Sohee. The songstress opted for a natural glam with wispy lashes to pair with her ensemble, topped off with an exquisite headpiece that featured pearl beads, rhinestones, and scalloped edges as the final touch to the angelic Mermaidcore look.

Following the London premiere, Bailey pulled off yet another sublime mermaid tail-esque ensemble on the blue carpet in Australia, custom-made by none other than Off-White. Her silky jewel-embellished blue gown was finished with matching eyeshadow, and her locs tied up into an intricate high ponytail that draped down her shoulders.
