Marsai Martin made a glamorous appearance at the world premiere of Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” on Monday night. The “Black-ish” actress was among the many stars to get a first look at the highly-anticipated film.
Marsai looked stunning as she posed for photos on the blue carpet. The Clinique ambassador wore a chocolate brown dress from Giambattista Valli’s fall 2022 couture collection. The gorgeous gown had an asymmetrical neckline, ruffled accents on the bodice, a daring thigh-high slit and dramatic short puffy sleeves.
To place more emphasis on her ensemble, Martin accessorized with small dangling circle earrings. As for makeup, she went with sharp winged eyeliner and a neutral matte pout. She pinned half of her boho knotless braids into a bun and let the rest cascade on her shoulders.
When it came down to footwear, Martin gave her outfit a literal boost with gold metallic platform sandals. The shiny silhouette had a thick double-layered outsole and was set on a thin stiletto heel.
The platform shoe trend is one of the easiest styles to incorporate into any wardrobe. Platform shoes have emerged as one of the most popular footwear styles. The dramatic heel easily adds flair to any outfit.
“The Little Mermaid” is a live-action reboot of Disney’s 1989 Oscar-winning animated film, which is based on the fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen. Starring Halle Bailey as the titular mermaid, the film follows her journey from life under the sea to finding love on land. “The Little Mermaid” also stars Melissa McCarthy as Ursula, Daveed Diggs as Sebastian, and Jonah Hauer-King as Prince Eric.
