Teen Kills It In Beyoncé-Inspired Prom Dress

This St. Louis high schooler channeled her inner Queen Bey, got in formation and went to prom and absolutely slayed!

Teens these days have been serving some serious looks at prom, but one nailed it recently with a Beyoncé-inspired dress that will make your jaw drop.

India Ross, a high school senior from St. Louis, raised the bar with a dress she DIYed to look like Beyoncé's 2015 Givenchy Met Gala gown. She purchased the materials at Walmart, Michaels, and eBay, and with the help of a local designer named Toi Hall, along with Hall's brother, created the perfect replica. Ross even nailed the hair, a slick high ponytail.

The high school senior told Us Weekly that the dress cost $800 to make and was mesh with 2,000 hand-placed crystals, but the price and hard work was definitely worth it.

"This has been a true blessing,” she says. “I never thought that taking pictures at my prom would just blow up overnight.”

Ross plans to double-major in Fashion Business and Fashion Merchandising at Columbia College Chicago this fall and we have a feeling that she'll absolute shine.

Slay, India! Slay!
