Remember that 18-year old who designed her own prom dress? Now she's back and taking on the red carpet.
Viral sensation Kyemah Mcentyre has gained the attention of not only the internet, but celebrities on the hunt for innovative designers. The teen first showed off her talent with her self-made prom dress, which she created to shut down the bullies who called her "ugly" in school.
Most recently the New Jersey teen experienced her first foray into red carpet design when she created a dress for actress Naturi Naughton for the 2015 BET Awards.
The 31-year-old "Power" actress slayed at the carpet in a vibrant orange floor-length dress designed by Mcentyre. The one-of-a-kind dress is stunning on Naughton with its intricate print detailing, plunging neckline and mermaid flare to tie it together.
The dress marks the young designer's second ever designed item. Seriously, she's giving us major #talentgoals.
The young designer shared with Cosmopolitan.com that to create the dress, she took notes by phone on how Naughton wanted the dress to look and made three sketches. Within less than a week, the gown was ready for the carpet.
"When I saw her sketches, I just felt like, this girl is an artist," Naughton told Cosmopolitan.com.
It's refreshing to see that after winning over the internet, Mcentyre is gaining attention as a serious designer.
As an artist I have a completely different point of view compared to most individuals. I am extremely analytical and observant. Throughout the world, we have people who do not notice each others essence and humanity. We Stunt our collective spiritual growth by allowing assumptions and stereotypes to cloud our mind and thus our physical reality. We let these negative ideas get the best of us, and in turn a world of isolation is manifested by our lack of sensitivity and desire to sympathize with each other. This results in a world in which people live within the confines of their own space, isolated from each other and separated from the rest of the world. Sometimes we get trapped in our own prejudice ways. We don't notice how the idea of a particular type of person changes the way we live our lives. The most creative people are the ones who step out of their comfort zone and take advantage of the world around them. My abilities as an artist allows me to experience the benefits that versatility fosters. Being exposed to all kinds of people and cultures is the muse for my artwork. I am an aspiring artist who is very passionate about the connection between art and the world. I believe that in order for society to gain a wider horizon, we have to be willing to acknowledge other people from differences, beliefs, morals, and values. #kyebreaktheinternet I love you guys, because of you all I continue to keep pushing no matter the circumstance. Let's try this again ✊🏾💕💕
We love Naughton for her great eye and taking a chance on new, young talent and wish Mcentyre all the best in her escalating career as a fashion designer.
