Marlene Dietrich knew how to work a beautiful fishtail dress back in the days, and judging by last night’s BAFTAS, the mermaid gown is set to make a huge Hollywood comeback.

From Penelope Cruz in a black Azzedine Alaia gown, Kate Winslet in an uber-gamorous Zac Posen number, Freida Pinto in Oscar de la Renta to Amy Adams in blue Roland Mouret, fishtail was THE silhouette to be seen in. The ultra flattering shape just oozes old-school Hollywood glamour and vintage sex appeal. Queens of Vintage predict even more fishtail dresses at the Oscars at the end of the month.
