Fishtails are Fierce

Not since Ariel from "The Little Mermaid" has a beautiful girl rocked a fishtail like Beyonce. This figure-hugging silhouette seems made for her hourglass figure, playing up those rounded hips with a slim curvy shape, skimming over legs, then trumpeting at the feet. Bright colors and sumptuous fabrics make the style even more fabulous.

Exquisite gowns with fishtails have been a favorite red carpet look for Beyonce for more than a decade, and she's proven the style works for her time and time again. Unless, of course, it's just a bit too tight, like the black and gold Emilio Pucci design she wore to the 2011 Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art that made walking almost impossible.
