The ‘Afrocentric’ Prom dress made by Kyemah McEntyre that went viral

So this prom dress made by Kyemah McEntyre which she wore to her
prom on Friday went viral yesterday because it’s different and
‘Afrocentric’ according to Necole Bitchie.

According to Necole Bitchie:

For the past couple of years, high school
seniors have been dressing to the 9s, 10s and 11s for their “night to
remember,” with completely beat faces and glamorous gowns that would put
our prom pictures to shame. On the flip side, we’ve also seen some *head tilt*
peculiar outfits that don’t quite hit the mark…not even within a mile!
However, one high school senior didn’t just hit the mark; she crushed

Making its rounds on social media is
Kyemah McEntyre’s utterly amazing, beautifully designed, fantastically
gorgeous (and all the other adjectives) Afro-centric prom dress.

The 18-year-old first debuted the
floor-length stunning creation on Twitter, posting a series of pictures
of her stunting in her dress while also sporting an enviable afro. She
captioned the images, “When European Ideals and standards of beauty mean absolutely nothing.”
The tweet ended up getting over 2,000 retweets. She later shared
another tweet, showing her support for girls mislabeled as “ugly” and
“angry.” “This is for always being labeled as, “ugly” or “angry”. Thank God, stereotypes are just opinions.” Amen!

Kyemah, known as Kye, isn’t just beauty,
she’s also brains. The talented artist sketched and designed the flowy,
eye-catching number while Markell Evette of Markell’s Closet turned her
vision into a reality. The red V-neck dress was also just as popular
offline as it was online as Kye took home prom queen at her high school
prom on Friday.


Via her Instagram page: I’m Kyemah McEntyre, I am 18 years old, and I am undoubtedly of African Descent.
