A taupe-colored strapless mermaid gown worn by Jennifer Hudson and designed by Randi Rahm. The bodice and upper skirt are form-fitting and covered in Swarovski crystal beading. The mermaid skirt is made from plain taupe tulle and flares out with a hemline that grazes the floor. Thin taupe satin ribbon is stitched around the waist and above where the skirt flares out. It is wrapped around the dress in a criss cross pattern. The ribbon at the waist has a small bow at the center front.
