Jadyn Duguyd, an artistic teen from Jacksonville, Florida let her personality shine brightly through her prom dress.

Duguyd, a senior at Douglas Anderson School of the Arts, purchased a vintage wedding dress from a local thrift store and created a gorgeous, one-of-a-kind prom gown.

However, this isn’t the first time Duguyd has put a creative spin on her prom attire. For her junior year prom, Jadyn recreated the famous “Starry Night” painting by Vincent Van Gogh by painting it directly onto her dress. Check out how cool it turned out!

This year, for her senior prom, she choose the well-known painting “The Scream” by Edvard Munch as her inspiration.

In an interview with WLTX, Jadyn commented, “I saw like five girls in the same dress at prom and I thought that was super weird because they’re spending so much money and looked really similar…but I didn’t spend much money and I think I stood out…probably.”

She’s right, she definitely stood out. What an awesome way to flaunt her artistic talent and look super chic while doing so.

She posted a photo of her prom dress on Twitter, and the post has already been retweeted over 20,000 times and has racked up over 70,000 likes. A few people even offered to buy her designs!

“I totally didn’t expect the reaction it got,” she told Yahoo! Style. “I thought I’d get a few hundred retweets at most. I’m really excited that my art is getting all of this attention.”

It’s clear that being an art student directly influenced her dress of choice. Check out Jaydn’s incredible unique prom dress and let us know what you think!

This past Saturday at Prospect Park in Brooklyn, New York, #BlackGirlMagic was abound!

The annual festival is sponsored by the five women of Curly Girl Collective. Curly Group Collective is a marketing group specializing in multicultural beauty. Their goal is to celebrate women all around the world by appreciating their natural looks.

Tracey Coleman, the director of events at Curlfest, stated in a press conference, “Curlfest was founded on the idea of you all needing to be celebrated. If you look around, and you see images of beauty, they don’t necessarily look like us.”

When Coleman was asked about the natural hair movement, she said, “The great thing about the movement now is that barrier is being broken down; there’s no good hair and there’s no bad hair. Healthy hair is what’s good, so that’s what we’re here to promote.”

People Are Now Changing Their Skin Color

A new phenomenon seems to be hitting the social media airways. Transracial is the new topic that is sending shock waves through social media these days. What is this new term and is it really catching on? It seems the answer would be yes!

The concept of transracialism seems to be becoming more popular among Caucasians and lighter skinned individuals. Skin darkening is not a foreign concept to us – though this takes tanning to whole new level! Cosmetically changing your race seems to be catching on, even if it is on a small scale.

German model Martina Big has become the latest to join this phenomenon. She has invested thousands of dollars to this new fad. She posted on Facebook showing off her new transformation and stating:

I have great news. I had done the next step in my transformation to a black woman. Yesterday I was with an African hairdresser and got a hair extension with curly, African hair. To become more and more a black woman, that is such a wonderful feeling. I’m so happy. Next, I’ll have consultations for the butt enlargement and for the African facial features.

Recently, she announced that her husband is now getting melanin injections in order to change his skin color as well.

Could this be the next big thing? What are the health risks? It has many in an uproar! Could this be as acceptable as being transgender? There are many opinions regarding race across social media outlets. It will be interesting to see how this develops. Will it fade out or is it here to stay? I am sure we will find out!

Deshauna Barbe spent her childhood moving from army base to army base. Born into a military family, Deshauna joined the military at 17 years old.

At the time, Deshauna had no idea that she would be the first woman in the country to win the title of MissUSA while on active duty.

Deshauna entered the pageant world at 19 years old. Over the next few years, she make a name for herself in the beauty queen scene while simultaneously serving in the U.S. Army. She also completed her MSc in Computer Information Systems at the University of Maryland. On top of all that, she was serving as an IT Analyst for the U.S. Department of Commerce.

She wants to let the world know that beauty is meant to be celebrated in all of its diverse forms. And although we’ve come a long way, we still have a ways to go. Deshauna is proving that women can fight for their country and look good in a swimsuit at the same time. She did a lot of work with soldiers who suffered from PTSD.

In an interview, Deshauna said, “In the past I have been very hard on myself about certain parts of my body, but I try to always remind myself that I was given this body and to remain positive.”

And her views on beauty are awesome:

“Beauty to me means more than something physical, and it’s definitely represented internally. I think beauty is about the way you treat others, being a humble and kind person that respects everyone. I think that really represents beauty.”

She says she enjoys the fact that she can show how multifaceted women are – there is both a tough side and a feminine side within us. Hopefully society will continue to challenge its beauty ideals by showing forms of beauty that aren’t necessarily considered ‘mainstream.’

Deshauna plans to continue serving as an inspiration to women all over the world.

“I hope to continue what I am doing to help impact people around the world — particularly young girls and women,” she says. “I plan to never stop working to positively impact their lives by motivating them to always follow their dreams.”
