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.
The Fact that people think I let ignorance ruin me Let's make this clear I do not think I'm Beyoncé but she's my inspiration I think somebody is confused on a inspiration just because she has on a #Givenchy dress don't mean I suppose to have a million dollar dress on I still look so god damn fine in my Walmart, eBay, Michaels, cheap looking #givenchy dress 😘👑🐝 #islay I sure hell did a good job give credit when due #crownus #blackmagic And your never gone find a pony NAILED as mines #prom2k16 please save all your negative comments off my page 💗 #iamindiaross
“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!
