Another day, another Beyoncslay.
This time, India Ross, an 18-year-old high school student from St. Louis, Missouri, caused a frenzy with her Bey-inspired prom dress.
The Fact that people think I let ignorance ruin me Let’s make this clear I do not think I’m Beyonc 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
The dress in question nods to the singer’s barely there Givenchy gown from 2015’s Met Gala.
With the help of local designer Toi Hall, the two spent months creating the special look for prom.
In a matter of a day, photos of her special day went viral.
“Just arecap of this weekend: It went down, it was crazy,” Ross said in an Instagram video. “Thank you everyone, I appreciate it.”
The teen even got the poses on lock, playfully tugging her hair just like Bey.
Though the ensemble was pricey for a prom dress, at $800, Ross said the experience was completely priceless.
This has been a true blessing, she said to Us Weekly. I never thought that taking pictures at my prom would just blow up overnight.
Hall, on her Facebook page, was equally ecstatic: All those sleepless nights, back pains, and hate were worth it.
