We all know, Beyonce has an enormous impact on women and pop culture, and now, it seems that she has influence on an aspiring fashion designer named La La Hale. Last night, the young 17-year-old student attended her 2016 Prom in Chicago and when she showed up, classmates were stunned by the prom dress she made, which she claims was inspired by Beyonce's 2015 Met Gala dress.
We caught up with the 17-year-old designer and she told us why she decided to make her own dress.
"The regal aesthetic from Beyoncé dress inspired my dress, symbolizing sexiness and elegance and we Virgos are pros at that. Beyoncé's elegance and nonchalant attitude, in my eyes, made her the best dressed at the MET Gala where many concealed their bodies. Her poised structure and amazing body made the dress stand out more than it would alone and it was a MUST that I reflected that at my prom. CEO coming out of high school, out with a bang."La La also mentioned she would love to make pieces for Beyonce, Rihanna, and Dej Loaf, one day.
Meanwhile, La La is gearing up to attend college this Fall in Atlanta and she continues to work on her clothing line, Rich Temper. She's also set to attend Beyonce's Lemonade concert next week at Soldier Field.
