The Little Mermaid Would Envy These Magical Oscars Dresses

The red carpet had some serious under-the-sea vibes.

On Sunday, February 28, Hollywood's best actors and actresses stunned in a variety of glamorous looks on the Academy Awards red carpet. And yet, there seemed to be one magical common theme: several of the gorgeous dresses (and one insanely intricate ring!) were straight out of an underwater fairy tale. Ariel from The Little Mermaid would approve.

    Ronan's glittery green gown reminds us of a mermaid's tail. Maybe if Ariel was wearing this, she wouldn't have wanted to leave the ocean.

    Green was a popular color this year! McAdams looks even more flawless than usual in this gown.

    Goldberg's dress was a simple black, but the real star of her classic look was the octopus ring twisting its tentacles around her right hand. Here's a close-up:
