Who are these Charles and Camilla? The annual Disney Night episode of American Idol, which aired on Sunday, featured a visit from a member of the royal family: Princess Ariel!
Ahead of the debut of Disney’s live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid on May 26, singer Halle Bailey took to the stage of American Idol to perform a live rendition of “Part of Your World,” the hallmark ballad of her character that is about the desire to experience life as a human.
Throughout the years, several live-action adaptations of iconic animated Disney films have been shown in theaters. The Little Mermaid is the most recent installment in this series. 1001 Dalmatians, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, The Jungle Book, and The Lion King are just a few of the films that have been remade for the big screen in the past.
The next film in the series is Snow White, which will be released in 2024. It will star Rachel Zegler and Gal Gadot as the eponymous princess and the Evil Queen, respectively. Other films, such as Hercules, Lilo & Stitch, Moana, and others, are now in the production phase.

During the time that the entire world is waiting for the premiere of the new live-action adaptation of “The Little Mermaid,” the titular mermaid herself is keeping audiences entertained by showcasing a series of red-carpet looks that are exactly in line with the musical’s concept. At this point in her career, Halle Bailey is no stranger to making a statement in the fashion industry; nevertheless, her dedication to method dressing as she promotes her most recent film is on a completely different level.
Bailey appeared on the blue carpet for the premiere of “The Little Mermaid” in Los Angeles, which was also the first time the film had been released. The outfit that she was wearing was the creation of Albanian fashion designer Valdrin Sahiti. The gown, which was shimmering and iridescent, had the appearance of a watery sculpture. It extended into two seashell shapes at the bust, which was particularly reminiscent of the seashell bra that was shown in the original cartoon.
Later on, during a performance of “Part of Your World” on “American Idol,” Bailey exhibited yet another example of method dressing by donning a custom Michael Fausto gown. Back in February, we had predicted that Fausto would be the designer who would develop a look for Bailey. The waves that smash behind Ariel as she sings on the rocks for the scene when the song is sung serve as a direct inspiration for the silhouette of the dress that she wears.
Given the abundance of upcoming premieres and press events, we anticipate that there won’t be a shortage of show-stopping ensembles that draw inspiration from “Under the Sea.” Detailed descriptions of each look may be found further down in this article.
