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!
