    The dress looks quite like Ariel’s (Pictures: ASOS/Disney) We’re super excited to see the Little Mermaid live-action remake – but we’re now wondering whether Ariel will wash up on shore in one of ASOS’s dresses, which has been likened to the outfit Ariel wore when she came out of the sea. Lauren Harding shared a photo of the cream textured dress alongside Ariel when she was first given legs, writing: ‘£55 to look like the Little Mermaid when she washed up onshore’.
