Though statement jewelry is usually worn to prom, statement dresses are rarely seen.
Milan Bolden-Morris, a senior at Cardinal Newman High School in West Palm Beach, Florida, wore a dress that featured the faces of black men, women, and children who have been victims of police brutality. The dress was specially designed by her friend Terrence Torrence, an artist and garment designer.
Torrence told BuzzFeed he first had the idea for the dress a year ago but never found the right model until he asked Bolden-Morris.
“God was just like she’s the girl for this dress,” Torrence told Buzzfeed.
Around 15 victims’ faces on scuba material make up the bottom of the mermaid-style dress. Black sequined lace forms the bodice.
After Bolden-Morris sent out that tweet, the dress went viral and even ended up on Snoop Dogg’s Instagram.
As Torrence continues to pursue his design work, Bolden-Morris is on her way to Boston College on a full scholarship for basketball.
