Cher

Rachel Flax from Mermaids

Rachel Flax is a character from the 90s film Mermaids, and is played by Cher. Mermaids follows Rachel’s daughter Charlotte who is tired of her mother moving herself and her sister every time she feels like it, and when she thinks they will finally settle down in Massachusetts, she realizes she is more like Rachel than she thinks and they learn to grow and accept each other.

Rachel’s iconic and most known costume from the film is one that she wears to a costume party and is featured on the film’s poster. She dresses like a mermaid with a blue metallic skirt, and a pink corset with a seashell bra. She pairs this with a gold sequin cropped cardigan, mermaid headband with curled ribbons and sheer blue ruffled gloves.
