This is the season of the ball. Students from all over the country show off their special appearance. A teenager chose an inspiration.
The Skyler branch of White Station High School in Memphis was wearing a costume not only talking to classmates, but also thousands of people on social media.
The branch wears custom-made clothing, including the faces of famous black women such as Michelle Obama, Oprah, Beyonce, Aria, Halle Berry, and Diana Ross.
This long gown dress also features Skyler’s great-grandmother’s face.
Yahoo style reports that her grandmother is the death of her very close great-grandmother.
Skyler turns heartache into inspiration and art.
Skyler said in her Instagram post: “I decided to let all the black queens who can change my life meet with me. I think I did.”
Skyler’s mother said to Yahoo: The style explains her moment of sharing the vision of the prom dress.
“She said, ‘Mom, there are so many extraordinary African-American women who have done so much for me. I want to show them some respect so that they know that not just older adults but young adults. To appreciate who paved the way “Skyler’s mother Dayna said.
Skyler plans to study in pre-university programs. One of the women on Skyler’s long gown dress is Dr. Alfreda J. Webb, the first African-American veterinarian in the United States, Yahoo! Life report.
