18-year-old Beyoncé superfan India Ross may not have had 99 problems, but finding the perfect outfit for prom sure was one, or rather it was until she commissioned local St Louis designer Toi Hall to make her the dress of her dreams. Based on Bey's 2015 Met Ball Givenchy dress, India's floor-length nude gown is made out of mesh and covered in multi-coloured crystals.

"When I gave my designer my money, I said, 'Can you make me feel like I'm Beyoncé?' And that's what she did," the high school senior told Cosmopolitan, "I really love Beyoncé. I watch a lot of fashion shows and ever since I saw her outfit at the Met Gala, I just knew that I was going to wear that to prom. It was see-through and I loved all of the diamonds and crystals. Everything about the outfit just caught my attention." Not only did she nail the dress, India also had the side ponytail and Sasha Fierce attitude down too.
