This DIY Beyoncé-Inspired Prom Look Absolutely Killed It

Slay, girl, slay

When it comes to picking out the perfect prom dress, we often look to our favorite celebs for inspiration. For India Ross, a St. Louis teen, Beyoncé’s stunning 2015 Met Gala gown (you know, that insane jewel-encrusted Givenchy naked dress?) was her vision of choice.

Instead of searching for a (probably overpriced) dress that semi-replicated Queen Bey’s gown, Ross got thrifty. The aspiring fashion designer teamed up with another local designer, Toi Hall of Toi Box Couture, to create a DIY look-alike. Using materials from Walmart, eBay, and Michaels, the two created a dress that looks pretty damn close to Givenchy for a minuscule percentage of the cost. It was definitely no easy feat—Hall mentioned on Instagram that a whopping 2,000 crystals were hand placed on the dress. 

I mean, take a look at the stunning replication for yourself, below.

Is that Beyoncé?

I mean, on top of the dress slaying, she also nailed Bey’s signature golden glow and high blonde ponytail. Great job, India!

We now have some major inspiration for a Halloween costume this fall...
