Teen slays in DIY Beyonce inspired prom dress

US Teenager creates her own version of Bey's Met Gala gown

Last year, Queen Bey graced the red carpet at the Met Gala in a show stopping Givenchy creation. In usual Beyonce style, she opted for a sheer, figure hugging, embellished gown that still has us talking, a year after she wore it.

India Ross, a St Louis high school senior, and loyal member of the 'Beyhive' decided that she too, wanted to turn heads at her prom, and incredibly, managed to construct a similar dress.

Inspired by her idol, India sourced affordable materials from Walmart and eBay alike and the result was amazing.

The internet has gone crazy over the striking resemblance between the gowns and despite the usual array of haters, social media has applauded her for her creativity and style.

Hoping to study fashion design after her graduation, here's hoping that Bey herself stumbles across these pictures and throws her a line. Who knows, maybe India will be designing the real deal sooner than she thinks!
