Dana International has unveiled the first of two Eurovision gowns designed for her by Jean Paul Gaultier. A quick glance reveals that the inspiration was “hideous sea monster.”

The light green dress features criss-crossed straps of fabric that give the impression of scales. At times it looks like seaweed is hanging from Dana’s rear. Not exactly what we expected given all the hype and secrecy surrounding its creation.

“I think it was nice,” Dana said after the rehearsal. “I felt like a fish in the water, and I hope I’m going to feel the same today. I feel far more comfortable when I’m wearing simple things without make-up. Now, with high heels and everything, it’s going to be a little bit more complicated, but it’s going to be fun fun fun!”

You can see photos of the gown below. What do y’all think?

No, not a sea monster. More like a plam-made basket. I want her white-dress-and-feathers outfit back!
