Well a lot of people complained about Naturi Naughton’s dress . BET’s official site even listed her amongst the worst dressers. A whole lot of other people complemented the outfit. Some others nagged that it wasnt appropriate for the occasion.

Well, remember this girl here with the viral prom dress who designed it herself?

She designed the dress! And I feel this 16 year old is absolutely talented!

McEntyre tells Necole Bitchie how it happened-

“Naturi contacted me through e-mail, and we talked over the phone about her ideal dress,” McEntyre told the blog Necole Bitchie.

“[Naughton] explained to me that she wanted to connect with her African roots as well. I explained to her that my prom dress was my first design ever and that her design would be my second. … She wanted to shed light on young people from her community [East Orange, New Jersey] and that she did. I enlisted a local seamstress by the name of Markell Mockabee, who brought my design to life.”

Now can we all get along? 🙂
