Ah, to be 17 and in Prada! Yara Shahidi made all of our prom dress dreams come true at the 2017 Emmys, rocking a truly exquisite design courtesy of the famed designer house.
Representing her hit ABC show, Black-ish, which was nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series, Yara made waves in an exquisite, nearly-nude number. With a pretty V-neckline and ruffled shoulders, the dress fell into a beautifully feminine silhouette. A textured gold belt defined the waistline, while ample tulle fabric at the skirt made this dress even more romantic. The crowning detail here, however, proved to be the vibrant, green sequined foliage details.
Ahhh — this gown is a breath of fresh air.
While the 2018 prom season is still a way out, we’d advise that those of you attending start taking notes. Because while this exact Prada gown might not make waves at your prom, we guarantee a few very similar versions of the dress will. After all, the red carpet is the birthplace of all great formal dress trends, so you might as well get ahead of the curve.
As for the beauty department, Yara’s got a few suggestions for gorgeous prom makeup as well. The 17-year-old kept it classic with a killer cat eye, perfectly arched eyebrows, glowing skin, and nude lipstick. Because when you’ve got a dress as eye-catching as this number, simple and refined makeup is the only way to go.
C’mon, look how much fun she’s having rocking this dress.
Yara is no stranger to crushing it on the carpet, as she’s had quite a few sartorial hits in the past. Still, the Harvard-bound actress just continues to prove herself a style star on the rise, and we’ll continue to look out for her incredible ensembles.
