"Can you make me feel like I'm Beyoncé?" That's all 18-year-old India Ross wanted for her prom. The high school student from St. Louis, Missouri got a custom prom dress inspired by Beyonce's 2015 Met Gala look--and she slayed.

"When I gave my designer my money, I said, 'Can you make me feel like I'm Beyoncé?' And that's what she did," India tells Cosmo. "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."

India's designe Toi Hall did an incredible job of recreating Beyonce's sparkly Givenchy gown. "I knew it wasn't possible for me to get the actual Givenchy dress Beyoncé wore — I wish! So we looked around for stuff that was cheaper than what Beyoncé actually had," says India. Using mesh material and jewels from the craft store, they made the look for a fraction of the cost.

India's look--complete with high ponytail and fierce poses--has gone viral. Her boyfriend said, '"You are the most beautiful thing ever.'" Even Beyonce's stylist, Ty Hunter, put a heart on her photo on Instagram. We're sure Queen Bey is proud too.
