This Girl's Gorgeous Handmade Prom Dress Just Broke The Internet

Kyemah McEntyre totally slayed prom.

Posted on

The wearer and creator? Kyemah McEntyre, a senior at Cicely Tyson School of Performing Arts, in East Orange, New Jersey.

Here's a close-up. Can you handle it?

And what's more, she actually designed it, too.

Let's all REMEMBER.... Kyemah sketched and designed her own dress 😍😍😍

McEntyre is going to be attending Parsons School of Design in the fall.

"Being exposed to all kinds of people and cultures is the muse for my artwork," she wrote on her Instagram page. "Don’t let anyone define you. Beautiful things happen when you take pride in yourself."

Kyemah says she was motivated to create the dress in part because of being bullied when she was younger.

This is for always being labeled as, "ugly" or "angry". Thank God, stereotypes are just opinions. - Kyemah McEntyre✊🏾

Was she crowned prom queen in this magical number? You bet she was.
